How to follow NFL rookies from Colorado colleges and high schools in the preseason

August is an exciting time for NFL rookies across the league. 

Whether drafted or undrafted, several first-year guys that either played college football in Colorado, (over half of the CU Buffs defense), or high school ball in the Mile High state (hello, Christian McCaffrey) are in action in the preseason. 

But, if you're a fan of some of these guys, it can be hard to keep track of where they are, who they're playing for and when they're playing next. 

So, we thought we'd make it easy on you. Below, you can find a detailed list that breaks down all the NFL rookies from Colorado--that includes the state's college and local preps scene--and when they'll be playing throughout the preseason.
