The Hyundai Sun Bowl will take place at 2:00  p.m. EDT Tuesday, where Virginia Tech (8-4, 5-3 ACC) will face No. 17 UCLA (9-3, 6-3 Pac-12) in El Paso, TX. on CBS.

For Virginia Tech nine players are on the list, including four who could potentially be drafted.

Let’s spotlight cornerback Kyle Fuller (6-0, 194 pounds) who is the seventh ranked CB and the 65th ranked player overall.

Fuller has been timed with a 4.45 40-yard dash and his analysis by Dane Brugler says:

"“A versatile DB with the athleticism to cover and the aggressiveness to play the run … Lacks elite speed and struggles to recover after the WR gains a step.”"

Eight players for UCLA are on the CBS list and we have to look at outside linebacker Anthony Barr, a first-round projected player.

The Texans could use more help at the OLB position, and if the Texans were to trade down in the draft, who knows if they would decide to select Barr.

It says in his analysis:

"“Long, lean athletic frame with plenty of room for additional musculature. Light, quick feet. Good balance and flexibility to change directions and to avoid cut-blocks …”"
