The draft process is in full-swing and what marks the beginning of draft season are the two All-Star bowl games, starting with today’s East-West Shrine Game. Traditionally, the Shrine game is for second- and third-day NFL draft prospects looking to add a bit of momentum before the combine. Every year there are a couple of players that play well during the Shrine Game and earn a move up to the Senior Bowl. If you’re looking for some draft diamonds in the rough, this is the game to look for them.
Since 2000, MVP performances have elevated QB Jimmy Garropolo, WR Steve Smith (the one from the Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens), and DE Erik Flowers, to name a few.
As always, let’s talk about the game, leave questions on prospects and enjoy.
