Before the Senior Bowl begins in earnest with practices on Monday, the biggest contest on the pre-draft all-star game schedule thus far came Saturday with the East-West Shrine Game, televised on NFL Network from St. Petersburg, Fla.

The East won Saturday’s game, 23-13, but the final score was essentially meaningless. Instead, the game served as the culmination of a week-long opportunity for 2014 draft prospects to showcase their talents to NFL coaches, scouts and executives in hopes of being among this year’s 256 draft selections.

Which players made impressions, positive or negative, in Saturday’s game? While it’s hard to make any big takeaways from the game, as the practices actually hold more value in the all-star game evaluation process, there were a players who might have made scouts want to go back and take another look at their tape, for better or for worse.

For as long as I’ve been watching football I’ve always looked forward to the all-star circuit and the East West Shrine Game particularly. It may not have the prestige of the Senior Bowl but its the 2nd longest running game and always brings in a lot of talent and puts on a good product. This year is no different as the Shrine Game features prospects from every level of NCAA Football and has some of the best offensive line prospects of any game in the all-star circuit.
