Lost in the shuffle of the East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl, the Texas vs. The Nation game offers players from lower-level schools the opportunity to showcase their talents for NFL scouts.

In recent years, the Texas vs. The Nation game has seen future NFL players like Pierre Garcon, Lardarius Webb, Demetress Bell and current Bear receiver Johnny Knox participate and offers teams the chance to see players they normally would not have on their radar.

According to the chairman of Texas vs. The Nation game, Kenny Hansmire (h/t Dallas Morning News):

I can guarantee that people will be watching the future of the NFL at this game.  At least 97 percent of these players will sign NFL contracts after this game.

 

The Dallas Morning News (via neighborsgo.com) also reports that there will be over 250 NFL scouts on hand and noted that one out of every ten players in the NFL played in the Texas vs. The Nation game.

The game will be played this Saturday in Allen, Texas and will be broadcast on FOX Sports. 

Most of the talent in this game will be late-round selections at best, but there are plenty of diamonds in the rough that could interest the Chicago Bears in the 2013 draft or even as undrafted free agents.

Here are three players the Bears should watch in the Texas vs. The Nation game:
