The East West Shrine Game just became a lot more interesting. South Dakota State University standout running back Zach Zenner has been invited to play in the game and fully intends to participate. The Shrine game already boosts some intriguing players, but the addition of Zenner makes this game a must watch on January 17th! I've profiled Zenner on this site already (post here), and think that he is one of the best late options at running back in the draft. The Shrine Game could propel Zenner upwards in the draft in spring; he's got a ton of talent, and it'll be good to see him working with different people and coaches.
Another Shrine Game update. LSU running back Kenny Hilliard has also been invited to compete in the Shrine Game. Hilliard is currently projected to go undrafted, a case not helped by a shoulder injury that will force him to miss the last couple of games of the 2014 NFL season. He needs a strong showing in the Shrine Game to try to find a spot on an NFL roster. Hilliard is a tough player and could be best as a short yardage guy in the NFL. Here's some film.
