As college bowl season keeps trucking along, we will help you keep tabs on prospects for those deep dynasty leagues, even if they are guys that are way off of the radar.
The bowl season got underway on Saturday with seven games that featured some players that we should see in the NFL next season and thus, players who will be available in your dynasty league rookie or startup drafts.
Starting with the game this Monday afternoon, here are some prospects to watch in the next four bowl games.
Famous Toastery Bowl
Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky: Probably the top prospect in this next set of bowl games, Corley is a clear NFL receiver who could be a day two pick in the NFL draft. He caught over 100 passes in 2022 and came back with another 75 this season. In addition, he has 11 touchdowns in each of the last two seasons.
Austin Reed, QB, Western Kentucky: Reed is not expected to play in this game, but he is still a name to know as he will likely get a look by an NFL team next season and we don't need to tell you that having a solid backup is a good idea after all of the QB injuries this season.
In two years with the Hilltoppers, he has thrown for over 8,000 yards with 71 touchdown passes. He and Corley made up one of college football's best (mostly unknown) combinations.
Joshua Cephus, WR, UTSA: Cephus is another guy who seems like a sure-fire NFL prospect who has had some off-the-field issues but has also set several high marks during his college career.
He has over 300 receptions, over 3,500 yards and 27 touchdowns in his career with the Roadrunners. He is definitely a player to watch in this game.
Rasheen Ali, RB, Marshall: Ali is a good-sized running back who has over 2,700 career rushing yards at Marshall. This season, he has found the end zone 15 times.
Boca Raton Bowl
The main prospect to know about in this game won't even be on the field, and hasn't been for much of this season.
The South Florida Bulls have a couple of off-the-radar guys such as quarterback Gerry Bohanon and wide receiver Ajou Ajou and Syracuse has quarterback Carlos Del Rio-Wilson, but none of those players will likely factor much in the Boca Raton Bowl. They might get camp invites at some point in the NFL but they are long-shot prospects.
But Syracuse tight end Oronde Gadsden had a big 2022 season in which he caught 61 passes for 969 yards and six touchdowns. That made him a big name to keep an eye on coming into this season, but an injury shut him down for most of the year.
He is only a junior, so he doesn't have to come out, but he will likely strongly consider it. Gadsden's father played in the NFL, playing six seasons with the Miami Dolphins after going undrafted in 1995.
Haynes King, QB, Georgia Tech: After playing sparingly in three years at Texas A&M, King transferred to Georgia Tech this year, throwing for over 2,700 yards with 26 touchdowns in 12 starts for the Yellow Jackets.
He is still a QB way down in the rankings (likely in the same range as Bohanon and Del Rio-Wilson) but unlike those two, we will see a lot of him in his team's bowl game with a chance to go out on a big note.
Trey Cooley, RB, Georgia Tech: A player who will likely take the undrafted route to the NFL as he has only carried the ball 64 times this season, Cooley may not get a lot of work in this game.
Christian Leary, WR, Georgia Tech: Leary is third on Georgia Tech with 25 receptions this season.
