The season has come to close and what does that mean? All-Star games! While schools are feverishly working to close their 2013 recruiting classes, those players hoping to make it at the next level are busy prepping to audition their skills in front of NFL scouts.
The college all-star games begin in earnest this weekend with the East-West Shrine, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and the Raycom All-Star Classic set to kickoff this Saturday.
The Big 12 will be well represented with 16 players set to take the field this weekend.
The highest profile player participating is Kansas State's Collin Klein who will be one of four quarterback's on the East's Roster in the Shrine Game.
Klein is probably a long shot to get drafted in the NFL as a quarterback, but that doesn't mean there isn't a spot for him on an NFL roster. He began his career as a wide receiver and although he'll be working out this week as a quarterback, it wouldn't be shocking to see teams take a look at him at other positions as the draft draws closer.
Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege will also get a look this weekend. Most prognostications have Doege as a long shot to get drafted but you can bet he'll find he way into an NFL camp as a free agent should nobody select him when the draft rolls around in April.
Here's a look at the Big 12 players that will be in action this weekend starting with the East-West Shrine Game.
