NFL Draft – Final All-Star Games

The two premier All-star games, the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine event have been completed over the past few weeks. The final All-star games will be played this weekend, February 5th. Though the Senior Bowl and East-West games were once again invaluable weeks for the overall scouting evaluation process for pro prospects for game action and practices, the two remaining games focus on middle and late round prospects and the important rookie free agency market players.
The two remaining All-star games for pro prospects for the NFL Draft 2011 are scheduled for this weekend. The newly named NFLPA Game features teams from Texas and the rest of the Nation and will be played in San Antonio, Texas. This game is the former Texas vs The Nation game that was established back in 2007 and has been one of the emerging All-star games in recent years.
The NFLPA game has always assembled an excellent group of middle tier prospects for the NFL Draft and this year has once again put together a fine roster. Players include, QBs Nathan Enderle of Idaho, Taylor Potts of Texas Tech, T.J. Yates of North Carolina and Ryan Coburn of Fresno St. Other highly regarded prospects include RB Damien Berry of Miami, DT Jerrel Powe of Old Miss, DE Wayne Daniels of TCU, DT Kendrick Ellis of Hampton U, OTs Trevis Turner of Abilene Christian, Derek Newton of Arkansas St, Jarriel King of South Carolina, Carl Johnson of Florida and Curt Porter of Jacksonville St, TEs Robert Housler of Florida Atlantic and Stephen Skelton of Fordham U and LB Mario Harvey of Marshall.

The Dixie Gridiron Classic presents its inaugural contest with a roster of mainly small college prospects that will get a final chance to impress NFL scouts vs top competition. The Dixie Gridiron Classic opens in St. George, Utah and hopes to build as a Jan 1st, All-star game in future years. Unfortunately, the upcoming game lacks the talent of the other All-star games, though they do have several players getting a long look from scouts including former Auburn QB/WR Kodi Burns, WRs Carl Moore of Florida and Dominique Johnson of Cal-Poly and UTEP DE Robert Soleyjacks.
