2018 NFLPA Collegiate Game Watch List

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl kicks off at 1 P.M. PST on Sat. Jan. 20 from the Rose Bowl. This is a big stage for some day two, three and undrafted prospects who are beginning the process of earning a roster spot on an NFL team.

Although the NFLPA doesn’t have the same recognition as the Senior Bowl or East-West Shrine game, NFL players like Tarik Cohen and Trevone Boykin are some notable players who played in this game. Many overlooked players from smaller schools and lesser-known players from bigger schools will use this game to propel themselves up NFL Draft boards.

Since 2012, this premiere Bowl Game takes players through training about becoming a professional player. The American team is coached by Darrell Green, while Mark Martz will try to keep his undefeated record as he leads the National Team. Both coaching staffs are filled with former NFL players at the coordinator positions.

This game features players with some name, production and school recognition who could end up in the 2018 NFL Draft. Here are 50 prospects, in no particular order, from both rosters to watch on Saturday.
