(The Toro Times will preview every college football bowl game, taking a look at the potential prospects in the bowl games that could be drafted by the Houston Texans in the May 2014 NFL Draft.)

The Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl will be played on Monday Dec. 23 in St. Petersburg, FL at 2 p.m. EDT on ESPN.

The game features Ohio University (7-5, 4-4 Mid-American Conference) and East Carolina (9-3, 6-2 Conference-USA).

According to the CBS Big Board there are two players in this game that are projected to be drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft in May.

Both of those players come from East Carolina in outside linebacker Derrell Johnson and free safety Damon Magazu.

Johnson is projected to be selected in the sixth or seventh round, and Magazu could be selected in the seventh round, or possibly signed as an undrafted free agent.

Lets take a closer look at these two players as the Texans could be looking at those positions this offseason.
