North Dakota State Bison (12-2)


Six FCS players to watch at all-star games

(STATS) - A wealth of talent from the FCS level will try to impress at the three most prestigious all-star games over the next two Saturdays.

Forty players will participate in either the East-West Shrine Game or NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday or the Reese's Senior Bowl on Jan. 28.

This decade, the FCS level has been averaging 18 selections in the NFL Draft, so many of the players will be trying to work their way into the later rounds. With undrafted free agent contracts, it's likely all of the FCS players involved in the three games will have an opportunity in an NFL camp this year.
