Last year’s New Orleans Bowl was a memorable game, in which the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns upset San Diego State to win its first-ever bowl game. This year, the Ragin’ Cajuns are back in the New Orleans Bowl, and will take on the East Carolina Pirates in a game that now kicks off the second week of the bowl season on Saturday at noon.
In truth, NFL scouts likely won’t be flocking to New Orleans for this game, as there is a good chance neither team will have a player selected in the 2013 NFL draft. But for those who do watch on Saturday, there are a few potential late-round selections that you should keep an eye on, and players the New England Patriots could keep an eye on as well.
