There is an old saying that you never stop being a student, particularly a student of the game, as it is way more complex than hitting each other while trying to advance the ball down the field.
Most NFL players went through a college education that also allowed them to showcase their athletic abilities affecting how scouts saw them as prospects ahead of the draft.
The Campus Heroes program commemorates some of the most outstanding college football players of all time with Madden Ultimate Team items to round up your starting lineup.
