For many players, the bowl season is the final chance to show NFL scouts what they have on the field before months of interviews and workouts in shorts. For fans, it's the last chance to take a look at the prospects that will make up the majority of the 2014 NFL Draft.

On Tuesday, there is just one bowl game: The Hawaii Bowl. Here are the prospects that should be paid the most attention:

Hawaii Bowl - Boise State vs. Oregon State, 8 p.m.

Player Pos. Height Weight Proj. via NFLDraftScout.com
OSU Brandin Cooks* WR 5-10 186 2nd
OSU Scott Crichton* DE 6-3 265 2nd-3rd
BSU Demarcus Lawrence* DE 6-3 245 3rd-4th
BSU Jay Ajayi** RB 5-11 220 4th-5th
BSU Charles Leno, Jr. OT 6-4 295 5th
OSU Rashaad Reynolds CB 5-10 187 5th

* Junior
** Draft-eligible sophomore

Both the Oregon State Beavers and Boise State Broncos have some talent that could make a splash in the 2014 NFL Draft, but that will largely depend on how many, if any, of the top players declare early. At the top, is true junior Brandin Cooks, who racked up 120 receptions for 1,670 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013.

However, the more intriguing players to watch for Jaguars fans could be a pair of redshirt junior pass rushers: Oregon State's Scott Crichton and Boise State's Demarcus Lawrence. Combined, the two pass rushers tallied 17 sacks and 35.5 tackles for loss in 2013 and could both fit the pass rushing LEO role for the Jaguars.
