What's Buzz-worthy: Here's another bargain-bin break ... it's hard to pass up two autos for the price when there's a shot at good names. ... As said in a past break of this, these colorful and striking blasters -- neon orange along with Mike Williams on the box -- are just as energetic on the inside. Like past years, there are two autos per box and a mess of inserts along with a modest amount of base cards from a relatively small set. There are big names of the recent past, players of Hall of Fame caliber and guys who were just drafted this year. This one is cheap fun -- but a quality release that's perfect for fans of certain schools. You won't find those elite names in every box when it comes to ink -- that's about the only drawback. This box had a first-round pick and a third-round pick for the ink, which isn't bad. The star power in the base set here is so good, though there's plenty available. These are a fun rip that football fans should get a piece of if they have any interest in the college game.
