2012 NFL Draft: Syracuse's Antwon Bailey, Phillip Thomas Will Play In NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

Two former Syracuse Orange football players will compete Saturday in the Collegiate Bowl, the first college all-star football game sponsored by the NFL Players Association.

Running back Antwon Bailey and free safety Phillip Thomas are two out of 100 draft prospects selected to play in the game, which will take place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. on Saturday afternoon.

Bailey ran for 1,051 yards as a senior and caught 29 passes for 200 yards, but his 5-foot-7 frame is not prototypical for an NFL running back.

Thomas led the Big East in interceptions with six and was third in the conference in tackles with 82, but missed the season's final two games after being suspended for violating athletic department policy. The suspension would have continued almost until the end of the 2012 season, making Thomas' decision to declare for the draft after his junior season a relatively easy one.
