Stars Can Be Found At Shrine Game


As prepares for a full week of coverage of this year's East-West Shrine Game, it's important to keep in mind what's at stake. Last year, the Eagles got a glimpse of an unheralded safety from North Carolina State who would go on to become the team's fifth-round pick, eventually landing himself in the starting lineup as a rookie. Beyond Earl Wolff, last year's game featured early round picks like running back Christine Michael and left tackle Terron Armstead.

First established in 1925, the Shrine Game has seen its fair share of superstars show off their talents in front of NFL scouts. In fact, check out this All-Star lineup of Shrine Game alumni currently in the NFL. Apologies to the likes of T.J. Ward, Dawan Landry, Brian Robison, Jordan Cameron, Joe Flacco and Cecil Shorts, among many others for their exclusion.
