General manager John Elway has grabbed some first-round steals and some late-round gems.

WHAT'S AT STAKE
Michigan looks to send its senior-dominated roster out the right way and not end the season on a two-game slide. Florida State is trying for its first bowl win since capturing the national title at the end of the 2013 season, and what would be a fifth consecutive season of at least 10 wins.

No. 11 Mississippi (10-3 last season) vs. No. 4 Florida State (10-3) in Orlando, Florida, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — When DeMarcus Walker became the first Florida State player since 2012 to post double-digit sacks, many thought he would leave early for the NFL draft.
