Shrine Game: Tuesday West Practice Notes

January 14th, 2014

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

The rain stayed away and we got to see some action at St. Pete High in the afternoon. Once again West head coach Romeo Crennel was a little too dedicated to calisthenics and stretching for the scouting eyes in attendance, but he did give us some gristle to chew on.

My focus was on the linemen and linebackers today. Read the rest of this entry »

Ken Whisenhunt Shuns the Lions

Instead of writing this one, I decided to express my thoughts in video form.

I’m not a huge Caldwell advocate but he’s the best option I’ve heard. As for the name I teased in the video, it’s not a coach who has been in the NFL in the last few years but has had NFC playoff success in the past.

I also rambled about some Shrine Game stuff. For a very nice listing of the covertly seized official measurements, check out NFL Draft Tracker. I met the man behind the site, Kyle Crabbs, yesterday and he’s a rising professional you should pay attention to.

I’m planning on milling around the main hotel today to try and get some useful information. Hopefully the West practice will be outdoors and we get to see some hitting!

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

I’ve been to a lot of All-Star games over the past few years, and it pains me to say that this was the least conducive practice session for scouting purposes that I can recall. There was almost no positional battling, a freakish amount of attention to stretching, and a healthy dose of special teams dominating the session at St. Petersburg High.

I spent most of the day watching receivers, tight ends and defensive backs. Though a certain quarterback and running back definitely caught my attention as well… Read the rest of this entry »

January 11th, 2014


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

While postseason bowls pop up and fade out, two have long legs of importance in the NFL draft process. The East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl are the two premiere events on the scouting calendar between the end of the regular season and the Combine at the end of February.

First up is the Shrine Game in St. Petersburg this coming week. I’ll be there in person for every practice and giving reports daily, plus instant tidbits on Twitter @JeffRisdon.

Here are ten prospects I’ll be watching with an eye towards how they might fit in Detroit. Read the rest of this entry »
