The one 2017 draft prospect NFL fans can't miss in all 40 bowl games
Bowl season has arrived, giving college football fans one last look at their teams and offering NFL fans an early glimpse of the players who will dominate headlines in the months leading up to the NFL draft. Below, we run down one draft-eligible player NFL fans should take note of in all 40 bowl games leading up to the College Football Playoff National Championship on Jan. 9. Before the outrage rolls in, note that each game's selection is not necessarily the best prospect on either team, just the one with the most at stake in what could be his final college game. Prospect breakdowns written by Eric Single, Chris Burke and Bette Marston.
From D’Brickashaw Ferguson to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, the NFL is littered with great names, and each April the league restocks not only with talent but also with notable monikers. The 2016 draft saw De'Runnya Wilson and Scooby Wright III, and this year, names like Taco, Forrest and Butt will be called in the seven rounds ahead.
Not every one of these names will make it in the pros, but each will be immortalized on SI’s 2017 NFL Draft All-Name Team. — Ari Ross
