The college all-star circuit heats up this week with the annual East-West Shrine Game.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, January 21 at Tropicana Field, but most of the work and scouting is done during the week at practice. This year's Shrine Game is the 92nd edition, the first and longest running all-star game in football.

Over 90 prospects from last year's Shrine Game were either drafted or signed as undrafted free agents, including four top-100 draft picks. That includes offensive guard Joe Thuney (78th overall to the Patriots), defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (89th overall to the Steelers), offensive lineman Graham Glasgow (95th overall to the Lions) and safety Justin Simmons (98th overall to the Broncos).

For the Bengals, last year’s game featured Ole Miss wide receiver Cody Core, who the team drafted in the sixth round. He went on to become a featured weapon in the offense during the final month of the regular season.

Darien Harris out of Michigan State, who spent the offseason with the Bengals before being cut prior to the start of the season, was also in the game last year.

The players are selected to the game based on their potential to make an NFL roster. A consensus of the 32 NFL teams is taken into consideration to field two teams of players who meet this criterion.

The divide typically used to assign the East and West teams is the Mississippi River, though exceptions are made to ensure that the best 100 players are selected for the game.

This is considered one of the two major games that give fans and NFL teams a chance to see some of the top NFL Draft talent, the other being the Senior Bowl next week. Some of the players who play in the Shrine Game will earn spots in next week’s Senior Bowl.
