Unfortunately for the teams involved, the "Little Caesars" Bowl is of little importance to the casual fan as well as to the NFL Draft fan community and NFL teams. The expected top match-up (Quantarus Smith vs. Eric Fisher) was secured of it's non-happening back when Smith had a season ending injury earlier in the year. Still, as you are watching (because it's a Wednesday between Christmas and New Years), be sure to check out a potential Top 20 left tackle prospect and three later round prospects that are hoping to end their college career's on a high note. Notes by Eric Galko and Brandon Morgan of Optimum Scouting   Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan - #, 6'7, 295 One of the premier left tackle prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft, Fisher possesses the length, lateral balance in his kick slide, and body control/flexibility that backside protectors need to have to be worthy of first round status. He positions his body well and maintains good kick slide form to maximize his size and length, and put him in good position to punch and kick on the edge. He also shows the ability to work upfield in the run game, thanks to his experience at left tackle, right tackle, and left guard in his career (where he impressed in each). He shouldn’t be tested much in this game with Quanterus Smith out, but this could be his first appearance for some scouts/GMs before he’ll (likely) impress at the Senior Bowl.   Jahleel Addae, S, Central Michigan - #, 5'11, 195 A quick to the ball, heady safety, Addae is active in the run game thanks to his ability to take ideal angles to the ball and understanding of his defense’s positioning in the box. Addae flashes the ability to drop in the zone well, and his ability to attack upfield as well as flip and turn to a zone is reassuring for his safety prospects at the next level. He’ll be tested to attack against the run, sorting through blocks to control the WKU offense, as well as likely being asked to control Jack Doyle in the seam. Jack Doyle, TE, Western Kentucky - #, 6'6, 251 Doyle has great size and has shown that he can be an asset as an inline blocker.  He also has soft hands and is always working hard.  Doyle lacks high-end speed and quickness, however, and his best chance is to latch onto a team as a free agent and be a 2nd tight end.  He does not profile as a “move” tight end. Kawaun Jakes, QB, Western Kentucky - #, 6'3, 199 Jakes does not flash any elite passing skills, he’s more of an athlete playing quarterback.  WKU is not a pass-heavy offense, but he directs them effectively and moves the offense well.  Jakes is pretty loose with the ball and has an awkward release.  He struggles with accuracy and does not look like a natural thrower.
