With two full months of the college football season finished, NFL prospects have had plenty of opportunity to create an impression on NFL scouts.

Some have boosted their grades through the process. Others haven't played up to their previous standards and are slipping down draft boards as a result.

Southern Cal wideout Marqise Lee has been a standout since stepping onto the field for the Trojans as a true freshman but a left knee injury has ruined much of the 2013 season for the reigning Biletnikof Award winner. Lee's burst was back Saturday night, however, as he and the Trojans upset Stanford.

The news wasn't as positive for a few other Pac-12 stars, however, as injury and ineffectiveness has scouts dropping the stock of Washington and Oregon State quarterbacks, Keith Price and Sean Mannion.

For those more interested in names rather than the explanations behind the movement in NFLDraftScout.com's rankings, the full list of Five Risers and Fallers from Week 12 of the college football season is below.
