The Frisco Bowl may not be anticipated viewing for many, but NFL draft fans should tune to ESPN at 8 PM tonight for some under the radar prospects.
The Ohio Bobcats have enjoyed a successful season with help from their quarterback, Nathan O’Rourke’s exciting play this season. The success of Ohio’s skill players wouldn’t be possible without a senior presence on their offensive line, particularly Joe Lowery. The senior tackle has great size and has been a longtime starter for the Bobcats. He is a powerful, and athletic player albeit he lacks some NFL level polish. He is bound to garner NFL interest.

Facing off against Lowery and the Bobcat offense is San Diego State junior linebacker, Kyahva Tezino. San Diego State is a young team, but Tezino stands out as their top player. The athletic, six foot linebacker flies around the field and can wreak havoc behind the line of scrimmage as a run defender and blitzer. It would be interesting if Tezino weighs entering the draft after a productive junior season, but few people could blame him for trying to build his resume before heading to the NFL.
#SDSU's Kyahva Tezino (@KYAHVA44) heads into the Frisco Bowl ranked 3rd in run-stop percentage (19.5) and 7th in percentage of run-defense snaps he was the first to make contact with the ball carrier (20.3), per @PFF_College. #GoAztecs pic.twitter.com/evRWQ9IN2Z— Austin Gayle (@PFF_AustinGayle) December 9, 2018
