2011 East-West Shrine Game: Tyrod Taylor Among Prospects Looking To Boost 2011 NFL Draft Stock

The 2011 East-West Shrine Game is just one of many all-star games for college football players trying to turn one last bit of live competition into a selection in the 2011 NFL Draft and a lucrative payday. Who should fans be watching in the game, broadcast on NFL Network at 4 p.m. Eastern?

Tyrod Taylor, Virginia Tech: The Hokies' career leader in wins faces questions about his size and passing ability, and must convince NFL personnel experts that he's not just this year's Pat White. He has superb agility and speed for a quarterback, which could translate to an NFL career at wide receiver.

Marvin Austin, North Carolina: One of the many talented players that could have made North Carolina's defense a juggernaut in 2010, Austin was kicked off the Tar Heels for the season after being involved in an NCAA investigation. He needs to remind scouts of the quickness and ferocity that made him a first-round prospect entering the 2010 season, and demonstrate that his conditioning has not suffered despite not playing a college game last year.

Terrence Toliver, LSU: Wide receiver with copious physical tools will try to shed doubts about his consistency.

Jerrod Johnson, Texas A&M: Aggies quarterback was benched midway through his senior season, but could flash the talent that made him a stellar player as an underclassman and might entice a team to take a flyer on him.

Karl Klug, Iowa: One of Iowa's many strong front four options, Klug could distinguish himself with an excellent performance in the Shrine Game.
