Your open thread for the Poinsettia Bowl

The Poinsettia Bowl is the other bowl game on this Tuesday.

Like most of these early bowl games, there aren't going to be many players on the field who will go on to play in the NFL next year. However, San Diego State has two prospects who could have a future playing on Sunday.

The first is left tackle Terry Poole. Poole was a right tackle last year, but has played every game at left tackle for the Aztecs this year. He has solid NFL size at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, but will likely be a right tackle, or swing tackle at the next level. Although, he could also find a home as a guard for a team that runs a zone blocking scheme.

The second prospect is wide receiver Ezell Ruffin. Ruffin is the Aztec's best player, and a legitimate NFL talent at wide receiver. He has solid size at 6-1 210 pounds, good speed, and reliable hands. He is going to have to work hard in his draft process as he missed the first part of his season with a broken collar bone. However, he is productive when healthy, leading the Aztecs with 63 receptions for 1,061 yards in 2013.

Ruffin or Poole could be on the Giants' radar as a Day-3 pick after studying Nat Berhe leading up to the 2014 Draft.
