The following is a Press Release from McNesse State Athletics:

McNeese senior free safety Malcolm Bronson, a three-time first team All-Southland Conference selection, 2012 preseason all-American and Buck Buchanan Award candidate, is one of 312 seniors and top NFL draft prospects from 114 different schools to be named to the Senior Bowl's first ever "Watch List" released by the organization on Thursday.

Bronson, a native of Jasper, Texas, is one of two players from the Southland Conference to be named to the list having been joined by Southeastern Louisiana cornerback Robert Alford.  There are 29 non-FBS players on the list and 21 from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).

The top 100 seniors in the country will be invited to participate in the 2013 Senior Bowl, set for Saturday, January 26 in Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium. 

"The Senior Bowl is very pleased to announce our first-ever ‘official' Watch List," Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage said. "We want both college and pro football fans to enjoy tracking the players on our list as they begin their journey towards the Senior Bowl and the 2013 NFL Draft. We have included prospects from almost every level of the college game and look forward to monitoring their progress throughout the upcoming season."

The Southeastern Conference, winners of the last six BCS National Championships, leads all conferences with 71 players on the list. Alabama, Georgia and Nebraska are all tied with the most players on the list with nine a piece.

The Big Ten has the second highest amount of players on the Watch List with 46. Among those seniors is 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist Montee Ball of Wisconsin. The running back led the nation with 1,923 yards and 33 touchdowns a year ago. Other high profile players featured on the list are USC quarterback Matt Barkley, Utah defensive lineman Star Lotulelei and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o.

Bronson is looking to become just the sixth player in Southland history to garner first team all-conference honors four straight years, joining his uncle Zach Bronson as the only other Cowboy player to achieve the honor.

He led the Cowboys with 90 tackles last season and was named the team's most valuable player.  He also topped the team with nine passes broken up, had three interceptions and returned one for a touchdown. 

Bronson recently was named to the preseason all-conference first team as well as a Sport Network Preseason All-American and a member of that organization's watch list for the Buck Buchanan Award (FCS Defensive Player of the Year).  He has also been named to the defensive back watch list by the College Football Performance Award group.

Invitations for the 2013 Senior Bowl will be begin being extended in the next few weeks and continue throughout the 2012 season. Appearing on the Watch List is not a requirement for a player to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl.
