    The Shrine Game rosters are out:

    East-West Shrine Game East Team Roster
    East-West Shrine Game West Team Rosters

    The biggest name in the game is TCU DE/OLB Jerry Hughes on the West team, a potential 1st or 2nd round pick at DE/OLB. But there are lots of other interesting guys.

    OT Kyle Calloway, OG Mitch Petrus, DE/DT Vince Oghobasse, DE/DT Arthur Jones, DE/OLB Willie Young, DE/OLB Brandon Lang, DE/OLB Lindsey Witten, DE/OLB O'Brien Schofield, and CB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah are among the interesting prospects on the East team.

    OT Chris Marinelli, OT/OG Zane Beadles, OG Shawn Lauvao, DE/DT Tyson Alualu, ILB Joe Pawelek, SS Larry Asante, SS Darrell Stuckey and CB Syd'Quan Thompson are among the other interesting prospects besides Hughes on the West team.

    Disappointing to not see Austen Lane on the list...

    Just posted about this guy in the prospects thread - James Ruffin, DE, Northern Iowa. 6'4" 264lbs, first team All American, finished with 48 tackles, 14 for a loss, 10.5 sacks. And that was playing injured. Red-shirt senior, so might not come out. Runs a slow 40 too, so would need to work on that.

    Very. Right now Lane, Vlad Ducasse, and Jared Veldheer are the guys I most want to see play against good competition. None are in this game.

    Hope Lane gets a Senior Bowl invite.

    Sounds like an interesting prospect. I read that he's played some DT too, so he's probably good at taking on blockers and stacking and shedding. He does sound slow, though. Draftbible reports his speed at 4.9, which just wouldn't cut it for an OLB.

    I watched Jan Jorgesen have a whale of a game last night against Oregon State. Fantastic body lean while turning the corner on OT's. Decent first step, functional strength and absolutely relentless.

    However he is too small to play DE for us and probably not fast enough to play OLB.

    I also saw TE Pitta in action and he is a clone of Dallas Clark. As a blocker he is miserable, not even trying from what I can tell, but he has the hands, route running and pass catching, to be a great H back type. He is the real deal as an H back.
