2011 East-West Shrine Game Thread

New, comments

I know nobody is focused on the Draft right now, but there is a game with college all stars playing in front of scouts to try and improve their position.

The positions of need are pretty evident, pass rushers and safeties. Depending on what moves the team makes, defensive line depth might be high on the list also. Mike Tannenbaum has shown a willingness to take a player he has highly rated, though, even in positions where the Jets seems set so anything is a possibility.

Our friend Alfie of SBN's Jaguars blog, Big Cat Country, was at practice this week and saw Jets scouts speaking with University of Richmond defensive back Justin Rogers. Rogers is decorated as a corner and as a kick returner (potential replacement for Brad Smith?). Keep an eye on him. Read more about him here.
