SB Nation’s NFL draft website, Mocking The Draft, is a full-service draft site following college football and its relationship with the NFL 365 days a year. They provide Top 100 and Top 200 prospects all year long to get folks ready for the April NFL Draft.
However, this week is when things really start to pick up for the site. The East-West Shrine Game takes place this weekend, which means the weeklong workouts leading up to the game are the first post-bowl opportunity to evaluate players. There will be numerous other opportunities but they do say the first time is the most memorable time. NFL scouts, coaches and front office personnel will be on hand in Orlando, Florida to assess everything about these players from the way they run routes to the way they tie their shoes.
There are only two Bay Area players participating in the Shrine Game (Cal MLB MIchael Mohamed and Stanford WR Ryan Whalen), but MtD’s Top 200 (updated yesterday) features seven Bay Area football players. These include (overall ranking listed):
14. DE Cameron Jordan, Cal
80. DT Sione Fua, Stanford
88. RB Shane Vereen, Cal
105. MLB Mike Mohamed, Cal
133. C Chase Beeler, Stanford
162. OT Derek Hall, Stanford
167. DE/OLB Tom Keiser, Stanford
