Currently, the NFL has many young, exciting and cheap prospects. Many of these prospects will probably become future superstars. Here are a few examples off the top of my head:
-Nick Foles (Believe he will become a great player)
-Vontaze Burfict (Only 22, will be around for a LONG time)
-AJ Green (Already a stud, but his his autos are still somewhat cheap...)
-David Wilson (LeSean McCoy 2.0 ... awesome upside)
These are just a few examples, but there are obviously MANY more players out there, each with a shot at becoming the next star.
1. Watch the players in ACTUAL games! My two biggest investments so far have been through Russell Wilson & Victor Cruz. I saw Cruz play in pre season against the Jets where he completley torched them. Got his contenders auto on ebay for $6! Also, living in Seattle was probably an advantage as I heard in all the newspapers how good Russell was looking in practice, and then I watched a preseason game of his, where I was impressed. Snagged a nice auto of his off ebay for roughly $11 the next day!
2. Watch a lot of college ball and it will become who has got what it takes.
3. Don't spend over $25 on an "unknown" prospect.
4. Read scouting reports. If a players biggest downside is his attitiude, he's better to invest in than a player with not great upside or physical upside.
