East-West Shrine Game: East team roster

New, comments

The East-West Shrine Game is this weekend, with the practices taking place throughout the week. We take a look at the East team's roster.


The annual East-West Shrine Game starts the college football "All-Star," draft prospect bowl series this week. While practices take place throughout the week, the game isteld will be this upcoming weekend and will give us a look at some of the potential names that may be called in May when the NFL Draft kicks off.

The 89th edition of the Shrine Game will feature an East roster coached by Jerry Glanville and headlined by Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Northern Illinois signal caller Jordan Lynch. This past season, Garoppol threw for 5,050 yards and 53 touchdowns, which could push his draft stock up despite playing at an FCS school. Lynch, meanwhile, was a Heisman Trophy finalist and is looking to prove he can play quarterback at the next level, despite many scouts projecting him as a running back or safety in the professional game.

Cornerback is also a position of strength for the East roster this year, with Lindenwood's Pierre Desir, Vanderbilt's Andre Hal, and Duke's Ross Cockrell all slated to play.
