NFLPA Collegiate Bowl 2014 rosters: Connor Shaw has a chance to impress

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The South Carolina quarterback headlines a list of players hoping to hear their names called in May.

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl returns to Carson, Calif., for the third time since being established in 2012. It's a chance for lesser-known college prospects to catch the eyes of scouts before the NFL Draft in May.

One player who will try to make the most of the chance is South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw, projected to be a late-round pick. He had an extremely efficient 2013 season, completing 63 percent of his passes and throwing for 24 touchdowns and one interception, but questions linger about whether he's maximized his potential, which could hold him back on draft day.

Shaw will quarterback the National Team, which is unbeaten since the Collegiate Bowl was established. He and his teammates will be led by former NFL head coach Dick Vermeil. The American Team will be coached by Dennis Green, who's making his NFLPA Collegiate Bowl debut.

Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton also has a chance to surprise. Analysts don't expect Guiton to be selected in May's draft, but the potential is there to surprise some scouts and improve his standing.

Guiton played in nine games in 2013, finishing with 749 passing yards, 330 rushing yards and a total of 19 touchdowns. There's no illusions of Guiton being a future franchise quarterback, but a team could believe he's worth a late-round flier and see if he can develop further.
