East - West Shrine Game (Jan. 20; St. Petersburg, Fla.) NFLPA Collegiate Bowl (Jan. 20; Carson, Calif.) FB Austin Ramesh. While admittedly the Senior Bowl is the highest profile of the games , all three of the games feature future NFL talent.

The 2018 East – West Shrine Game will be the 93rd staging of the all – star college football exhibition to benefit Shriners Hospital for Children. The game will be held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on January 20, 2018 , with a 3:07 PM EST kickoff.

January brings college football all-star games, which provide draft-eligible college football players an opportunity to impress NFL scouts.

The Senior Bowl, played every year in Mobile, Ala., since 1951 is the showcase game, but not the only game to draw top NFL talent. The benefit for prospects is they get to be coached by an actual NFL staff and this year it will be the Texans and Broncos coaches who get the hands-on experience with some of the nation's top seniors.

The Texans will coach the South team while Vance Joseph's Broncos staff will lead the North.

"The Senior Bowl is a great opportunity for our coaching staff to get a look at some of the top college players in the country," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "Anytime you get to work hands-on with these young players and put them through the rigors of NFL-level practices and meetings, it can be tremendously beneficial to both parties. We are all looking forward to the week and making the most of it."

"From the meeting rooms to the practice field, the Senior Bowl experience lets us see how these prospects work and prepare in a competitive environment."
