With the college football season ending and the Draft coming up in April, there are a lot of players that had rocky seasons. For a select few of these players they will have a bowl game to play in to show the pro scouts they are ready for the next level.

For the others, well, there is the scouting combine to look forward to and some finger crossing. 

This season has been a tough one on teams and players. There have been some close battles, a lot of upsets, and some devestating injuries to some valuable players.

No matter what has happened in the season there is a bowl game left to play for some fortunate players to show they have what it takes to perform at the next level in a key game where it all counts. Here are the five players I thought need a big bowl game to improve their draft stock.
