2011 NFL Draft: Senior Prospects to Watch As Bowl Season Kicks Off Saturday
University Stadium in Albequerque

New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, is best known for desert landscapes, Native American culture and, of course, UFO sightings, beginning with the infamous 1947 Roswell crash.

This coming Saturday, the scenic city of Albuquerque will host the New Mexico Bowl in the first of 35 bowl games on this year's schedule.

Aside from the ridiculous Beneath Common Sense, uh, BCS, system (which is used to manufacture a symbolic national championship), most of the other bowl games are actually worth watching.

For the NFL draft enthusiasts among us, the bowl games give us another chance to scout players who are potential draft or rookie free agent prospects. Three bowl games will be played on Saturday's bowl season kickoff day. Following the New Mexico Bowl, there will be the Humanitarian Bowl and New Orleans Bowl.

For a list of potential draft prospects to watch during those games, please read further. If you see a UFO during the New Mexico Bowl telecast, do not fear...they might be here just to give the poor New Mexico Lobos football program some much-needed supernatural support these days.
