Lots of talent everywhere in the conference.

The East-West Shrine Bowl is one of the country’s longest-running all-star football showcases, a platform for aspiring professional athletes to make a case as to why they belong in the National Football League, and with that in mind the team behind the game revealed a list of prospects it intends to review throughout the 2022 season as it prepares for its part in the pre-draft process.

A very lengthy list.

Among the 1,000 names on the list — you read that right, one thousand — 56 hail from 11 Mountain West football programs. The largest cohort belongs to the Boise State Broncos, who have 11 different players on the list, followed by Fresno State with nine and then Colorado State and San Diego State with six each.

It is an interesting blend of obvious candidates, like Nevada defensive tackle Dom Peterson and Boise State safety JL Skinner, but there are some interesting selections among the group, as well, like Broncos defensive end Shane Irwin, who medically retired back in June, and UNLV long snapper Rex Goossen, who is one of just five players at his position here. The conference’s group of recent transfer portal arrivals like Cade Beresford, Gurvan Hall Jr., and Jordan Murray are also well represented.
