The 2017 Holiday Bowl has the makings of one of the more lit bowl games of the season. There's talent all over the field, two vastly different coaching staffs and offensive schemes and therefore a potentially-absurd (in a good way) result.
COMPARE: Jamal Morrow vs. L.J. Scott
Let's talk a little more about the talent part of that equation.
Here are the Top NFL Draft prospects in the Holiday Bowl
|1||Luke Falk||QB||Washington State|
|2||Andre Dillard||OT||Washington State|
|3||Hercules Mata'afa||DE||Washington State|
|4||Cole Madison||OT||Washington State|
|5||L.J. Scott||RB||Michigan State|
|5||Brian Allen||C||Michigan State|
|7||Chris Frey||OLB||Michigan State|
|8||Jamal Morrow||RB||Washington State|
|9||Demetrius Cooper||DT||Michigan State|
|10||Garrett McBroom||DT||Washington State|
|11||Cody O'Connell||OG||Washington State|
Depending on which analyst one asks, Falk is likely taken off the board between Round 3 and 6. Dillard has received some Round 3 grades and Mata'afa, who is viewed more as a pass-rush specialist, grades out anywhere from late Round 2 to Round 5.
Of course, these players have a game left, plus showcase events and the NFL combine to impress scouts.
