Top 25 future NFL stars to watch in Dec. 26-30 bowl games

New Year's Day serves as the headliner of this season's bowl games, with the two College Football Playoff games set for that day, but there will be plenty of pro prospects on display this week leading up to those contests.

Some of the nation's top QBs will take the field over the next few days, and this top 25 list would be even more impressive if several players were not injured or sitting out bowl games as they begin their pre-draft training process.

Among the top players not suiting up this week as they prepare for the next level are Florida State S Derwin James and Texas OT Connor Williams. Some other top talents might also be sitting out this week due to injury or by choice.

For now, here are the top 25 future NFL stars to watch in Dec. 26-30 bowl games. NFL scouts will be happy to see them in action.
