Though four teams remain in the NFL Playoff hunt, the other 28 teams are in the midst of the eight-month-long offseason that lays ahead. One of the first indicators of the NFL offseason is the East-West Shrine Game, which showcases some of the best talent from collegiate football in an effort to improve draft stock and also raise awareness for Shriners Hospital for Children.
The 92nd East-West Shrine Game kicks off on Saturday as NFL Draft season nears and teams start to build toward 2017. The more popular Senior Bowl is just a week away, but the East-West Shrine Game is a nice primer to get us fully into scouting mode.
Also, it’s not like this game is completely irrelevant. Last year, the Detroit Lions drafted four players that played in the 2016 Shrine Game: Graham Glasgow, Antwione Williams, Jake Rudock and Anthony Zettel.
Later on Saturday, we’ll have five players to watch for this year’s Shrine Game, but for now, here’s all of the broadcasting information you need to know for the game.
