While next weekend's Senior Bowl has the more impressive rosters, today features two other bowl games that is sure to have numerous 2015 NFL Draft selections in play.
The 90th East-West Shrine Game will take place in sunny Florida today with a good set of hopefuls in action. Mocking the Draft has the key names to track in Dan's preview. Rams fans will want to get a look at the East's offensive line with Syracuse OT Sean Hickey and Louisville G John Miller in action.
The Collegiate Bowl is a bit weaker overall from a draft perspective but has a ton of diamonds in the rough. Take Malcolm Bunche. He joined the 2010 class at Miami and settled in as the starting left tackle for his redshirt sophomore season, with many assuming he was an early draft prospect. His career, though, petered out at Miami with Ereck Flowers jumping to the fore. Bunche transfered to UCLA for his final season but wasn't able to get into the mix. The easy comp, not perhaps on skill but on legacy, would be Seantrel Henderson. Henderson's career at Miami was supposed to be one of stardom. Instead, three marijuana-related suspensions later, the would-be phenom headed to the NFL with a disgraced resume. Fast forward a year, Henderson settled in as the Bills' starting right tackle for the entire season. Perhaps Bunche is on a similar path of redemption.
Enjoy the games, folks.
