New Mexico Bowl Preview: Washington State vs. Colorado State

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Today there are four bowl games, and while there aren't any major bowls there are a number of NFL Draft prospects on display. Invictus has you covered on Fresno State/USC and Buffalo/San Diego State, and I'm going to give a little insight into Washington State and Colorado State.

Unfortunately I haven't seen Colorado State play this year, but there are still a few prospects who are worth keeping an eye out for and from things I've read. The top player on the team is center Weston Richburg. It can be argued that improving the center play is vitally important for the Giants moving forward and Richburg is considered a top center in the upcoming class. Richburg against Alabama.

Deone Bucannon and Damante Horton are the two best players on Washington State. Buccannon especially is a guy who could get realistic looks on day two of the draft. He's a safety with good size at 6'1 215 pounds and a guy who lays walloping hits. Bucannon has a 109 tackles this year along with 5 picks after tallying 106 tackles last year with 4 picks. Here's a nice piece on Bucannon by CBS Rob Rang. Horton is a day three prospect. They also have a solid kicker in Andrew Furney, but I don't think he's NFL solid.

And a game against Arizona State from this year.:

There's another game on today that won't get much publicity from us and for good reason. The New Orleans Bowl features Louisiana Lafayette and Tulane and there aren't any stud prospects in this game. Tulane has a wide reciever in Ryan Grant who has a shot at getting drafted.

Happy Watching!
