The end of April/beginning of May is a big time for many college football players, as a dream they've worked toward essentially for their entire lives is finally set to come true. The NFL draft is nearly set to get underway, and it not only is a huge time for sports fans but obviously for the players waiting to hear their names called as well.

You don't have to be a first-round draft pick in order to walk away as a major winner from the weekend of action. Heck, you don't even have to get drafted, as many undrafted free agents have wound up making plenty of impact for their eventual teams.

But, for two of the top college defensive backs and most highly-rated players at their positions, they decided to up the stakes just a bit, in terms of where they'll be selected. Florida's Jalen "Teez" Tabor and LSU's Jamal Adams made a little bet with each other back in high school, and we're all about to find out who's going to win.

NFL Network also asked Adams about the bet, and he told them that the two players made the wager back at The Opening in 2013 (A Nike recruiting camp). It all comes down to which defensive back hears their name called first on draft night.

Adams originally stated that the bet meant the loser had to pay for the other person to go anywhere in the country, but both answered that they would choose to go places outside the United States, so maybe it's been expanded a bit.

“Basically, the bet is if he goes before me I have to pay for a trip anywhere in the country,” Adams said “If I go before him, he’s gonna do the same. I told him from the get go that I was gonna go before him so we’ll see.”

Tabor said that he would choose “Amsterdam or somewhere like that,” if his name gets called first.

Over his three years with LSU, Adams tallied 209 combined tackles, 18 tackles for loss, 14 passes defensed, five interceptions, two forced fumbles and two sacks. Tabor was more than impressive as well, totaling 104 combined tackles, 11 tackles for loss, eight interceptions, four sacks and three touchdowns.

Both players could easily hear their names called in the first round, but at the very least, don't be surprised to see them both off the board before sometime in the middle of the second round.
