Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

A look at the top NFL Draft prospects in Saturday's bowl games: The New Mexico Bowl and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Saturday is the first day of the 2012-13 NCAA Football Bowl season and it kicks off with a pair of games: The New Mexico Bowl and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Here are the seniors to keep an eye on when you watch the game:

New Mexico Bowl: Arizona vs. Nevada

Prospects to watch:
Arizona: WR Dan Buckner, QB Matt Scott, FB Taimi Tutogi,
Nevada: S Duke Williams, TE Zach Sudfield, RB Stefphon Jefferson, LB Albert Rosette, CB Kahlid Wooten, OT Jeff Nady, G Chris Barker, WR Brandon Wimberly, OLB Jeremiah Green

Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated says that the player to watch in the New Mexico Bowl isn't a senior, though:

Mickey Baucus, T, Arizona: Baucus is a large left tackle who's developing a complete game. He overwhelms defenders run blocking and displays next-level pass protection skills. The red-shirt sophomore is a two-year starter and will only improve with experience and maturity. 3rd Round

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Toledo vs. No. 22 Utah State

Prospects to watch:
Toledo: LB Dan Molls
Utah State: CB Will Davis, RB Kerwynn Williams, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Matt Austin, OLB Bojay Filimoeatu

According to Pauline, the player to watch in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl is a senior that has a chance to become a first round pick in April:

Will Davis, CB, Utah State: Davis entered the season graded out as a free agent, but his game has taken off as a senior. He's developed into a dominant cornerback and consistently shut down opponents last season. He possesses the size, athleticism and skills to develop into a starter on the NFL level. 1st/2nd Round
