USC Prospects Speak About Tonight's Draft

Pac-12 Network's Rick Neuheisel got some final thoughts on the NFL Draft from Marqise Lee and Marcus Martin.

The Trojans have dominated the NFL Draft over the years, and once again USC sits in great position to have two of its captains from last season selected in the first round of this year's festivities from Radio City Music Hall.

As an official measuring stick, USC has 23 players eligible for the NFL Draft and have THE MOST players drafted in NFL history. But right now, Marqise Lee (Junipero Serra H.S.) and Marcus Martin (Crenshaw H.S.) are garnering all the attention as two of the 30 invited prospects to check out the action live from New York City. 

Both Marqise Lee and Marcus Martin came into college as relatively unknown prospects from the local Southern California area among Lane Kiffin's 2011 Recruiting Class but through hard work and determination, they have developed into outstanding contributors that are poised to become first round selections.

Pac-12 Networks' Rick Neuheisel, who actively recruited many of these prospects out of high school, spent some time talking with Lee, Martin and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks about the growth process into the National Football League.
