2013 NFL Draftees Playing in College Bowl Games

Now that all of the college bowls have been announced the 2012-13 NCAA college bowl season will be starting soon. Most people outside of the participating schools’ alumni don’t really care much about some of the lesser-known bowls. So, I thought I’d put together a list of all of the college bowls with any potential players who could be drafted in the 2013 NFL draft that might be fantasy football relevant.

While most fantasy football players don’t look at much more than the first-round quarterbacks and maybe the first- and second-round wide receivers and running backs, those of you in dynasty leagues – who will only be drafting rookies – might find this more helpful. I’ve also included defensive players for you Individual Defensive Player (IDP) leaguers out there.

Maybe this will help you get a real game look at that guy you could end up drafting next fall, and cause you to pay more attention to that ambiguous bowl game that’s on. The order of each teams players listed is based on that players projected NFL draft position which is noted in parenthesis after each player with their ballpark draft position. These draft positions are very preliminary, and I’ve only included, roughly the Top 100 draft eligible players, but this should give you an approximation of where that player could be drafted. Enjoy.
