The annual East-West Shrine Game starts the process of putting NFL Draft Prospects on the field together under NFL coaches. Together with the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and the Senior Bowl, these “all-star” events give teams a chance to see potential draft picks of undrafted free agents up close, both on the field and with team meetings. Pewter Report’s Trevor Sikkema is at the practices leading up to the game, which will be played this Saturday.
As he covers the practices, Sikkema is also tracking prospects who are meeting with teams. Some of these may simply be a meet-and-greet type of meeting between the team and the player, or they could be the team trying to get a better idea of who a player is and if they have interest in adding him to their team.
Sikkema has updated his list of team meetings after the first two days of practices. For the Miami Dolphins, a few prospect meetings have been reported. After Monday’s practice, Sikkema reported the Dolphins met with Vanderbilt running back Ralph Webb, Penn State wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton, and Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson.
After Tuesday’s practices, Sikkema reported the Dolphins met with Ohio State defensive back Damon Webb. Charlie Campbell from WalterFootball.com adds the Dolphins met with Arkansas State defensive end Ja’Von Rolland-Jones.
