The 2011 East-West Shrine Game will be played this Saturday, January 22nd in Orlando, Florida. It will be the 86th rendition of the annual senior showcase.
Postseason senior bowls are a huge opportunity for NFL Draft prospects. All week, the players get to showcase their skills, hustle and coachability to NFL coaches and scouts.
This year's game will be coached by Wade Phillips and Dan Reeves. With Phillips heading to Houston, the West defenders will be having a direct audition to be a part of his 3-4 defense.
Although the Shrine Game isn't as high profile as the Senior Bowl, it is still a prestigious event, majorly filled with NFL talent. A player can improve his stock by one to three rounds with a primetime performance.
Last year, we saw a glimpse of what Javarris James, Rodger Saffold and T.J. Ward could do against elite competition, and there is plenty of impact NFL talent in this year's game.
