Coach Prime's two sons, Shedeur and Shilo Sanders, and several Colorado football transfers from both Jackson State during Deion Sanders' initial portal wave and this past portal cycle, are all worthy of NFL consideration according to Buffaloes Wire's Jack Carlough.

"In their first year with the Buffs, Shedeur Sanders broke CU’s single-season passing yards record while (Travis) Hunter earned the 2023 Paul Hornung Award as college football’s most versatile player," Carlough prefaced before saying, "If they stay healthy and continue producing, the two Buffs stars should continue flying up NFL draft boards.

"Colorado does have several other players who are worthy of NFL attention, as Coach Prime said. Those who come to mind include Jimmy Horn Jr., Will Sheppard, Shilo Sanders, Cam’Ron Silmon-Craig and others."

Coach Prime promises Colorado football will produce first two picks in 2025 NFL draft

In classic Coach Prime fashion, he gave a massive projection for his players during CU's 2024 debut season in the Big 12 and the 2025 NFL draft cycle. Deion Sanders claimed that Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter would be the first two picks following their final collegiate seasons at Colorado this fall.

“We got, proposedly, the first and second pick of the whole draft, Sheduer and Travis, so every NFL scout is coming down,” Sanders told the University of Colorado's Boulder’s “Prime Time: Performance and Leadership” class. “But they’re not just gonna come for that, because I want them to see the smorgasbord of players that we have and the operation that we have.”

Coach Prime has been accused of taking part in "Daddy Ball" but has also made it a point to prop up players like Cormani McClain and Omarion Miller; players he wasn't always proud of and would call out publicly.

Sanders' NFL legacy at Colorado won't begin to be established during the current 2024 NFL draft cycle beyond Jordan Domineck, but it could be legendary in 2025.
