Default East-West Shrine Game

With Crennel coaching the west team this year, I think there may be a future Texan or two to watch this weekend. Anyone have thoughts on any of these guys?

2014 Shrine Game: Top-10 prospects to watch

I don't know any of them but found this intriguing

DT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech (6-2, 357, 5.34, #70)
A load to handle, Ellis has a large body with a wide frame, using his size and momentum to surge through the offensive line and disrupt the backfield. He needs to show he is more than just a bull rusher, but his nonstop motor, ferocious demeanor and much improved ball awareness are impressive.

Would love to have a big space eater NT for once

You're not even the slight bit interested in Bullough or Jackson? There are a few could be gems in this game.

I have a mock where we get Bullough at 5.1. I'm interested in him.

MSU LB Max Bullough might be in his first trimester. He definitely has some bad weight to lose before the Combine, starting with his gut

Ellis or Beau Allen (327lb DT out of Wisconsin) could be some players to watch; they both play for the West and therefore are getting coached up by Crennel.
