NFL Draft Prospects to Watch in the 2016 Foster Farms Bowl

Indiana and Utah match-up in the Foster Farms Bowl, where a lot of NFL prospects will be facing off. There will particularly be a lot of lineman to watch in this game. Here are the best draft prospects from this game:

Indiana Hoosiers 

Dan Feeney, OG

Projected Draft Range: first round-third round

Feeney was one of the best guards in the class before the season and has done nothing to change that. At six feet four inches, he has the necessary size to be a good NFL guard for years to come. He has all of the necessary skills you would want in a guard. He can both run block and pass block really well. His mobility is also great as he can pull on running plays and move to pick up blitzers too.

Utah Utes

Garrett Bolles, OT

Projected Draft Range: first round-third round

Bolles will be one of the first tackles taken off the board in the 2017 NFL Draft. His physicality has helped Joe Williams successfully un-retire and rush for over 1,000 yards. He has to prove that he can pass block well to move up into the first round. If he plays well in this bowl game and performs well leading up to the NFL Draft, he can leap up draft boards.

Marcus Williams, S

At six feet tall and 190 pounds, Williams will need to bulk up before the NFL season. He has the necessary cover skills to even play some corner back if a team chooses to use him that way. He is a turnover machine for the Utes with four interceptions and two forced fumbles. In the 2017 NFL draft, Williams will be one of the first five safeties taken and the team who takes him will be satisfied.

Lowell Lotulelei, DT

The younger brother of Star, Lotulelei isn’t quite the prospect his brother was. Lowell isn’t a slouch though. He is six feet two inches tall and 310 pounds. Double teams aren’t always enough to stop him from getting to the ball carrier. He has an impressive seven tackles for loss on the season. One area he can improve is his pass rushing, with only 3.5 sacks recorded on the season.
