    Just an heads up for everyone on the Shrine Game. Practices are January 15th-19th at the Texans practice fields and to the best of my knowledge are open and free to the public, then the game is January 20th.

    Here is a tentative schedule for the week off of the Shrine Game's website:

    There aren't a ton of guys that are going to be there that are high draft prospects as the Senior Bowl gets the top seniors, but there are some guys I'll be looking at out there:
    Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno
    Brian Robison, DE, Texas
    John Wendling, S, Wyoming
    Baraka Atkins, DE, Miami FL
    Dan Bazuin, DE, Central Michigan
    Brandon Frye, OT, Virginia Tech
    Tyrone Moss, RB, Miami FL

    Leon Washington, Greg Jennings, and Marques Colston played in the E/W game last year. Occasionally, players will come out of nowhere and make a name for themselves in games like this -- guys that have received little or no national pub. I plan to go.

    Colston had a few nice plays in the practices, so it's not too bad an idea to watch those.

    Colston and a guy from UCF were among the best recievers in the practices.

    Brandon Marshall who played well in the last handful of weeks for the Broncoes. He is expected to push for Rod smith's job next year.

    Not to sound like a homer, but keep an eye out for Lester Ricard QB from Tulane.

    Young's play cost him this year.

    His weight is a concern.

    His supposed work ethic is a concern already.
