2012 East-West Shrine Game: Boise State DE Tyrone Crawford Ranked 5th-Best Prospect In Game

The 2012 NFL Draft is only months away, and under-the-radar prospects are desperately trying to make a name for themselves whenever NFL scouts are around. Boise State defensive end Tyrone Crawford is particularly focused on performing well at the 2012 East-West shrine game and in team practices throughout the week. Wes Bunting from the National Football Post is high on Crawford, and ranked him as the No. 5 overall prospect playing in the Shrine game. Here is what Bunting had to say after watching Crawford in practice all week:

At 285-pounds Crawford showcased natural power all week at the point of attack in the run game while exhibiting the ability to be sudden with his hands and slip blocks. He's also a physical pass rusher who turns speed into power off the edge, understands angles and knows how to rush with leverage. I could see him fighting for a starting job as a 43 base end potentially early on.

The projection as a 4-3 defensive end means Bunting thinks Crawford would be a great fit on either the Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans or Denver Broncos. The Boise State product is currently ranked as the No. 16 defensive end in this year's draft class by Bunting on NFP.
