Poinsettia Bowl 2016: TV schedule, game time, 2017 NFL Draft prospects to watch

We highlight and profile the 2017 NFL draft-eligible prospects for college football’s Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday, December 21.

Welcome back for another day of college football bowl action! We’re back with another look at the latest bowl game, highlighting and profiling a few notable draft-eligible prospects you should pay attention to this evening. This will help us build a list of names to know when we get into the offseason and really get into draft prep. For today's action we take a look at Western Kentucky vs. Memphis in the Boca Raton Bowl. So, sit back, put your scouting hat on, and let's get things started.

Poinsettia Bowl

BYU Cougars vs. Wyoming Cowboys
Conference Affiliations: Conference USA vs. American Athletic
Date: Wednesday, December 21
Game Time: 6:00 P.M. PT
Location: Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, CA

Both BYU and Wyoming roll into this game with momentum following a successful season. Wyoming defeated a tough San Diego State squad and took home the trophy for the Mountain West Conference. BYU is hot as well right now, winning each of their last four contests by at least 17 points.

Top five offensive NFL Draft prospects

1. Brian Hill, RB, 6’0”, 220 lbs – Wyoming
2. Jacob Hollister, TE, 6’4”, 240 lbs – Wyoming
3. Chase Roullier, OG, 6’4”, 319 lbs – Wyoming
4. Nick Kurtz, WR, 6’5”, 210 lbs – BYU
5. Taysom Hill, QB, 6’2”, 230 lbs – BYU (Injured)

Top five defensive NFL Draft prospects

1. Travis Tulloma, DT, 6’2”, 301 lbs – BYU
2. Michael Davis, CB, 6’2”, 190 lbs – BYU
3. D.J. May, SS, 5’11”, 216 lbs – Wyoming (Injured)
4. Kal Nacua, FS, 6’1”, 208 lbs – BYU
5. Sae Tautu, OLB, 6’3”, 245 lbs – BYU

Prospect that fits the 49ers

Travis Tulloma could be a potential late-round pick that will compete for a spot on the 49ers roster. Tulloma is huge and very hard to move. The Niners run defense is atrocious so they need to continue to build the defensive line as much as they can.
