Re: 2016 East-West Shrine Game

Top 10 most intriguing East-West Shrine Game prospects - NFL.com

Here are the top 10 players most intriguing to NFL scouts in this year's Shrine Game:

1. Keenan Reynolds, RB, Navy:

The FBS all-time career leader in touchdowns, rushing touchdowns, and rushing yards by a quarterback is making the official move to the running back spot for Shrine Game practices. Considering he ran twice as often as he threw as the Midshipmen's quarterback (977 rushes versus 462 passes), some could argue this isn't really a position change. He showed toughness and agility as a runner in the triple-option throughout his four years in Annapolis, but the Heisman candidate will have to show scouts he can find holes and take advantage of them in a pro-style offense.

2. Vernon Adams, Jr., QB, Oregon:

Anyone who watched the Ducks this year knows that the team was completely different with anyone other than Adams leading the way (see their Alamo Bowl loss to TCU). He learned Oregon's offense quickly after coming over from Eastern Washington for his final collegiate season, gaining the respect of his teammates right off the bat. He kept that respect by trying to play through injuries multiple times. Adams is not a run-first passer by any means, can calmly look for second and third options in the pocket, delivers an accurate and catchable ball, and has a very good arm. If he can become a leader of his teammates in a short practice week and stick in the pocket to make NFL-caliber throws to receivers with whom he's just met, teams will have an even higher regard for his skills.

3. Devon Cajuste, WR/TE, Stanford:

This large receiver (6-foot-4, 227 pounds) wasn't utilized as much as he could have been by the Cardinal this year -- partially because they needed to feed Christian McCaffrey as much as possible. But when given the chance to shine, Cajuste did just that; he made five catches for 125 yards and a touchdown against Notre Dame. Much like last year's second-round pick, Devin Funchess, Cajuste is destined for the Y-spot in an NFL offense, utilizing his height and hands over the middle and in the red zone. A big week in St. Pete, along with strong workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine, could cement a top-100 draft grade.

4. Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State:

This two-time Associated Press FBS All-American had 29.5 sacks and 45.5 tackles for loss the past two seasons for the Bulldogs. But now he's going to face three potential mid-round picks in Cincinnati's Parker Ehinger, Michigan State's Donavon Clark and N.C. State's Joe Thuney every day in practice. A strong performance by Hargrave attacking gaps and holding the point when necessary could take Hargrave from intriguing small-school star to valued mid-round interior defender.

5. Paul McRoberts, WR, Southeast Missouri State:

Another exceptional talent at the FCS level, McRoberts (6-3, 197) displays quickness off the line and excellent hands and concentration to high point passes. He's scored nine times in each of the last three seasons, catching the attention of NFL scouts. McRoberts and similarly sized UMass receiver Tajae Sharpe will have their hands full with talented cornerbacks such as Brian Poole (Florida) and D.J. White (Georgia Tech) during practice, so they'll get a chance to prove their ability to be physical on short routes and gain separation downfield.

6. Nate Sudfeld, QB, Indiana:

In some ways, Sudfeld is a known quantity to NFL scouts. He started parts of two seasons and then stayed healthy as a senior, earning consensus third-team All-Big Ten honors (3,573 passing yards, 27 TD, 7 INT). However, passers such as Sudfeld with NFL size (6-6, 240), arm strength, and some mobility will be highly scrutinized at an all-star game. In a quarterback class full of question marks, a good week for Sudfeld could push him up boards for at least a couple of teams looking for a future starter.

7. James Cowser, DE, Southern Utah:

The Thunderbirds have relied on Cowser to bring the heat off the edge for four years. He produced 42.5 sacks during his career among his 80 tackles for loss, using strength and hustle to dominate lesser tackles at the FCS level. If he regularly beats East team tackles Brandon Shell (South Carolina), Keith Lumpkin (Rutgers), Taylor Fallin (Memphis) and Fahn Cooper (Ole Miss), scouts will believe he can make a significant contribution on Sundays.

8. Darion Griswold, TE, Arkansas State:

The Red Wolves ranked 85th in the FBS with 207 passing yards per game in 2015, so it's not really a surprise that he had just 13 catches and 187 yards and two scores. Given the growing importance of athletic tight ends in the NFL game, however, Griswold has a great opportunity to show off strong hands and agility in drills and scrimmages throughout practice week.

9. Stephane Nembot, OT, Colorado:

One of the more interesting personal stories in the draft class, Nembot (name-bot) grew up in Cameroon and came to America to play basketball. But as his frame filled out (6-7, 315), it was clear that the offensive line was where he belonged. He took over at left tackle for the Buffaloes halfway through his senior year after playing on the right side for two-plus seasons. No matter where the Shrine Game coaches line him up, scouts who haven't seen his rangy frame and tenacity as a run blocker should be colored impressed.

10. Aaron Wallace, LB, UCLA:

Heading into his senior season, the son of long-time NFL linebacker Aaron Wallace, Sr. had started just two games for the Bruins. But with the Bruins suffering injuries at the position, including the loss of star defender Myles Jack, Wallace found himself on the first team. He stepped up his game with 12.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks, looking the part of a Sam 'backer able to play the edge with strength and track down the ball in the pocket. Wallace's lack of playing time on defense doesn't give scouts much film to review, so they'll take full advantage of a week's worth of access to his talent.

Re: 2016 East-West Shrine Game

Cajuste is a beast, Lasco is pretty good. Seen many Cal/Stanford games.
Joe Gibbs- The best coach of all time, Lombardi trophy should be renamed Gibbs.

Art Monk- Art was like an OL playing WR, doing the dirty work and not getting the glory.

Darrell Green- Best DB ever.

Ten things we learned: Vernon Adams stunning in Shrine Game - NFL.comvernon-adams-stunning-in-shrine-game

9. Badgers safety makes splash. Wisconsin DB Mike Caputo made two interceptions, including one off of his former teammate, Badgers QB Joel Stave.

10. Making bank. Among the Shrine prospects that Mayock said "made money" with their performance through the week: Illinois WR Geronimo Allison, Nebraska OL Alex Lewis, Kentucky DL Cory Johnson, Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld and Oregon QB Vernon Adams.
Players that stood out to me:
CB Bobby Calhoun
CB Crevon LeBlanc
DL Oneymata (DL from Canada)
David Onyemata (DE), Manitoba

Read somewhere that LaShaun Sims could be a better draft prospect then his backfield mate the much spoke about Killebrew

Would never have guessed that.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.


Awesome isn't it.
