Today the college all-star games kick off with the East West Shrine Game. The game will be televised on NFL Network with the coverage starting at 3 central. Brad Childress, hopefully the next coach of the Colts, and Bobby Ross will be coaching the two teams.
Wes Bunting of The National Football Post has highlighted the 10 best prospects of the game. With each guy he talked about, he listed three teams that he thinks the player would be a good fit for. Click through the jump to see which players he highlighted for the Titans.
At 285-pounds Crawford showcased natural power all week at the point of attack in the run game while exhibiting the ability to be sudden with his hands and slip blocks. He’s also a physical pass rusher who turns speed into power off the edge, understands angles and knows how to rush with leverage. I could see him fighting for a starting job as a 43 base end potentially early on.
Iowa CB Shaun Prater (5-10, 185)
He’s not the biggest or fastest of corners. However, he’s improved his feel in coverage as a senior, recognizes routes well and does a nice job cleanly getting out of his breaks when asked to run vertically down the field. Plus, he plays faster than he times because of his "plus" balance and ability to stay low consistently. Looks like a solid NFL nickel.
If Sikes is around today, maybe he can give us some insight on Prater.
Gramsey will also be paying special attention to B.J. Coleman because he loves him.
