Gildon New Mexico Bowl Preview

Washington State v. Colorado State

Oh the prestigious New Mexico Bowl. If anyone is going to be happy to be in the ABQ it’s Wazzu and CSU fans. These two teams have two combined bowl appearances in the last 10 years. Watching the Rams run their version of the Alabama game plan is pretty interesting. They also have several prospects worth watching. On offense keep an eye on C Weston Richburg. He could be the top center drafted. Also check out TEs Crockett Gillmore and Kivon Cartwright, as both could develop into NFL players. And don’t forget RB Kapri Bibbs! He’s the best player you’ve never heard of. He ran for about 100 TDs in 7 games as a starter. He’ll be on the Heisman dark horse list in 2014. On defense, the Rams have a great linebacker and MWC DPOY Shaquille Barrett. Barrett’s a great pass rusher, and could make his way into the 1st Round. For Wazzu, just enjoy watching their system offense, as they don’t really have much NFL talent right now. On defense, they’ve got a playmaking safety in Deone Buchannan who has been making his way up draft boards this year. Seeing him match up against the TEs will be fun.
