New, comments

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl features Vanderbilt QB Jordan Rodgers, brother of Aaron, Olympian and Texas WR Marquise Goodwin, as well as Fresno State RB Robbie Rouse, who ran for nearly 1,500 yards his senior year.

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl will be held in Los Angeles for the first time, and features a roster including Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers and Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.

The NFLPA event, slated to be held Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. PT and broadcast on ESPN2, isn't the premier all-star game in the pre-draft run-up, with the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game among others, but its roster features several legitimate draft prospects. Teams will be coached by former NFL head coaches Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil, with former NFL players filling assistant roles. The game has some of the better prospects from levels below the FBS.

Rodgers, brother of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, led Vanderbilt to nine wins, one of the best seasons in program history. Goodwin competed in the 2012 Olympics as a long-jumper, catching three touchdowns for Texas. Robbie Rouse, a running back from Fresno State, might be the best draft prospect in the game after running for 1,490 touchdowns in 2012.
