ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein headlines a group of NFL hopefuls looking to raise their draft stock in the annual East West Shrine Game in Florida.
Klein, a four-year standout at Kansas State, will easily be the biggest name on the field Saturday in an all-star game that developed the reputation in recent years of being a place where scouts can discover overlooked prospects.
Washington Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris is probably the most recent example.
The former Florida Atlantic standout was barely a speck on draft boards before catching the eyes of scouts during his practice week in St. Petersburg for last year's Shrine Game.
Klein has been trailed by questions about his throwing motion, but says he has no plans to play another position in the NFL.
