Arizona State Draft Prospects Boost Stock During Shrine Bowl

The Sun Devils saw five of their own in the Shrine Bowl last week. How did each ASU player stack up against the competition?

The NFL draft process is officially underway. 

Last week saw two of college football's top all-star games in the Shrine Bowl and Senior Bowl commence, with some of the top talent entering this year's draft participating in both. 

The Arizona State Sun Devils were well represented in Las Vegas for the Shrine Bowl, with five of their own making cameos in offensive tackle Kellen Diesch, linebacker Darien Butler, defensive tackle D.J. Davidson and defensive backs Chase Lucas and Jack Jones. 

While All Sun Devils was in Mobile covering ASU running back Rachaad White at the Senior Bowl, we were able to keep eyes and ears where majority of Arizona State's draft-eligible prospects chose to play thanks to Tyler Browning, president of Blue Chip Scouting and covering the draft for Cowboys Wire.

Browning, who was able to break down practice film daily by those rocking the pitchfork on their helmets, was able to offer feedback on every ASU prospect.

The next step in the process will be the upcoming NFL Combine, set to run from Mar. 1-7. 

White will join his Arizona State teammates in Indianapolis when the time comes, as the Sun Devils will be in full force with all eyes and ears fixated on the biggest job interview of their lives. 

However, for many of ASU's draft prospects hoping to hear their name called down the road, it appears their first taste of the process went fairly well during Shrine Bowl week.
