The Shrine Game is the second-biggest all-star game for college football players and a key part of the schedule for NFL’s pilgrimage down south during the NFL Draft process. This year, the Shrine Game features a host of talented tight ends, two impressive pass rushers and a receiver from Air Force that could emerge as one of the best at his position in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Based off of their college film and week of Shrine Game practices, here are the top-10 NFL Draft prospects to watch in the Shrine Game.
Easily the best quarterback prospect at the Shrine Game, Zach Terell finished a fantastic college career with a remarkably efficient senior season and the maturity and poise as a pocket passer. While he doesn’t have top-end measurables or top-flight arm talent, Terrell looks the part of a lesser Kirk Cousins. I’d expect him to have a few strong drives in the Shrine Game and show off that reliability.
K.J. Wright, OLB, Seahawks: Bobby Wagner in the middle and the Legion of Boom behind Wright still overshadow his terrific play. He has stood out more with his best season as a pro, recording career highs in tackles (126) and sacks (4). He’s been needed to be even stronger in coverage with Earl Thomas injured, and he has delivered.
Nick Perry, OLB, Packers: Perry, even finishing Cheap Jackie Robinson Jerseys the season with a bad hand that required him playing with a club, had his long-awaited breakout as a pass rusher, leading the team with 11 Cheap Hockey Team Jerseys sacks working opposite Clay Matthews this year. Perry was a difference-maker in the final two games and must stay hot to help Green Bay’s overall pass defense.
