Coaching Staffs

The East-West Shrine Bowl recently announced that two full NFL coaching staffs, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, will coach this year's game for the first time in the game's 98-year history.

In addition to the two coaching staffs, 14-year NFL veteran Will Shields will serve as the NFL Legend Team Captain for the East, while eight-year NFL veteran Robert Turbin will serve as the NFL Legend Team Captain for the West.

PFF's Prospects to Watch

Before practices begin tomorrow, Pro Football Focus' Trevor Sikkema listed his top 10 draft prospects to watch in the 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl.

Here are a few of Sikkema's Shrine Bowl prospects to watch:

WR Zay Flowers, Boston College

"Flowers is PFF's best bet for the player who will gain the most hype during Shrine Bowl week. At 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, the All-ACC receiver brings a dynamic element that will surely stand out in both one-on-one drills and scrimmages. He recorded 503 yards after the catch, 23 explosive plays, and a 103.5 passer rating when targeted in 2022. Expect for his name to be a constant on your social media feed with highlight clips all week."

LB Drake Thomas, N.C. State

"Thomas has played an insane amount of football over the past four years — 2,976 snaps, to be exact. The 6-foot, 230-pound middle linebacker has turned into a run-stopping machine, earning an elite 90.5 run-defense grade in 2022. He recorded 33 solo stops last season and 37 the year before. He also tallied 44 total pressures and eight sacks this past season."

CB Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson, TCU

"One of the biggest risers in this class from this past season is TCU cornerback Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson. His 90.4 coverage grade in 2022 was a leap from his 67.9 coverage grade the previous season. He allowed just 28 receptions for 365 yards all year. It was also very impressive that a 5-foot-9, 180-pound cornerback forced 21 incompletions. He has a good chance of being the highest-drafted secondary player from the Shrine Bowl group."

View the players set to become free agents when the new league year begins on March 15.
