One of the more interesting match-ups of the bowl season as an overrated Georgia squad takes on the underrated Aggies of Texas A&M.  The top NFL prospects in this game come from the ranks of the underclassmen and many are expected to enter the draft in the coming days.

Explosive, run defending safety with nice size. Aggressive and stops ball carriers dead in their tracks. Hesitant in pass coverage and must improve his ball skills. Offers a great deal of upside and a dynamite player if he meets his potential. Will enter the 2010 draft.

Justin Houston

4Jr

Good athlete with great upside. Fires off the snap, fast off the edge and effective making plays from the backside. Offers growth potential and should only get better as he physically matures. Must keep his focus on the field and make football a priority.

Terrific one-gap or three technique tackle coming off of injury. Fires off the snap, gets leverage on opponents and plays with great explosion. Strong in his lower body and moves well laterally.
