There is no more college football this season and the NFL doesn't start again until tomorrow. Today, though, there are a couple of college All-Star games, which are really just showcases for the young guys to display their talents for NFL scouts. The 2015 NFL Draft will be happening this spring, and many players in today's games will be in the mix for NFL teams on that day.
The 90th annual Shrine Game is one of the games today. One of the names people are talking about in this game is Devin Gardner, the Michigan quarterback who will be making a switch to wide receiver. Other prospects to watch according to SB Nation:
This year, the game features potential draft picks such as Kentucky defensive end Za'Darius Smith, Kansas linebacker Ben Heeney and Louisville offensive guard John Miller. Another intriguing prospect to keep an eye on is Texas running back Malcolm Brown, who never really got going in Austin but has the physical tools to succeed at the next level.
Also, wide receiver Darren Waller from Georgia Teach has been impressive in some of the practices He has good size for an NFL receiver.

The other game today is the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. It doesn't feature the quality of the Shrine Game, but there are still some prospects that could end up in the NFL.
Some players to watch from SB Nation:
Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato will headline the American Team. The signal caller just put the finishing touches on a stellar collegiate career that saw him finish third all-time in total touchdowns among NCAA players. One of his counterparts on the National Team is Miami (OH) quarterback Andrew Hendrix, who previously played at Notre Dame and practiced well leading up to Saturday. Nevada defensive end Brock Hekking will look to get after Hendrix while defensive end Marcus Rush, who totaled 10.5 sacks last season at Michigan State, is a player to watch on the National defense.
