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 Sunday, there is just one bowl games: The GoDaddy Bowl. Here are the prospects that should be paid the most attention:

GoDaddy Bowl - Arkansas State vs. Ball State, 9 p.m.

# Player Pos. Height Weight Proj. via NFLDraftScout.com
ARST # Ryan Carrethers DT 6-1 330 4th-5th
BSU # Jonathan Newsome OLB 6-2 236 7th

* Junior
** Draft-eligible sophomore

In year one of Dave Caldwell's rebuild of the Jaguars, not many defensive lineman were added, although Roy Miller and Sen'Derrick Marks made for additions of full-time starters on the interior of the defensive line in free agency. While one played solid enough to earn a four-year, $22 million extension, the other didn't look too impressive.

Miller wasn't quite the run stopper that the Jaguars needed at the 1-technique position, although it's possible that was due to injury. Still, a rotational player to help keep Miller fresh and give the Jaguars another young run stopper would be a plus. That could be Ryan Carrethers, a large defensive tackle for Arkansas State who has been unbelievably productive, at times.
