East - West Shrine Game Thread

Editor's Note: Make sure and check out our LIVE MOCK DRAFT that began at noon.

For those not familiar with it, the East - West Shrine Game is a game that is played once all the regular season bowl games are finished. 1925 marked the first time in which the game took place. Since then, the game has been regarded as one of the most respected events in college athletics. The game features some of the best college athletes in the Nation as well as coaches. The game's main purpose though, is to help support Shriner's Hospitals for children. Many events take place before the game to help raise money for these hospitals which helps out significantly.

We wanted to make this thread for gameday discussion and review some of the players that have declared themselves eligible for the 2010 NFL Draft. Below, I will list the rosters and highlight some of the players to keep an eye on.
