The annual East-West Shrine Bowl has established itself as one of the premiere events throughout the NFL Draft process. And now the Shrine Bowl has made it known it will be watching several WVU players to see if they earn invites.

On the heels of former Mountaineers Dante Stills and Bryce Ford-Wheaton testing their talents at the Shrine Bowl this year and eventually landing NFL contracts, it’s possible even more West Virginia players could earn that same opportunity.

The Shrine Bowl included 7 players on WVU’s current roster on its “East-West Shrine Bowl 1000” list. This list shows the eligible players those running the Shrine Bowl feel are worthy of recognition from each school and could be worthy of receiving official invitations after the 2023 season.

Devin Carter, Doug Nester, Jared Bartlett, Keyshawn Cobb, Montre Miller, Sean Martin and Zach Frazier are the West Virginia players who made this watch list.

The Shrine Bowl released a message about its this list.

“Every year, approximately 1000 all-star game eligible players are drafted, signed after the draft, or attend a rookie mini-camp. Our aim is for this Shrine Bowl 1000 to serve as a look into our scouting process, as well as begin to preview college players who are currently all-star game eligible for the 2024 East-West Shrine Bowl and 2024 NFL Draft class.

Putting together this list was extremely challenging for our team, as we scouted players from all four levels of football and consulted with NFL and college personnel to ensure the selection of the best 1000 players for the NFL level.

The East-West Shrine Bowl is a best-in-class all-star event that will take place at the Dallas Cowboys Facility in Frisco, TX on February 1, 2024. Our players will be coached by NFL coaches, in an NFL facility, and will have access to NFL-level resources, facilities, player-friendly schedules, and opportunities at the highest level.For more information about the 2024 game, you can visit this link.”
