Shrine Game 2012: CU's Tyler Hansen, Ryan Miller Invited To Postseason Game

The 2012 Shrine Game will allow former Colorado Buffaloes quarterback Tyler Hansen and guard Ran Miller a chance to improve their draft stock.

The Colorado Buffaloes will have two players representing the team at the 2012 East-West Shrine Bowl on Saturday, Jan. 21, in St. Petersburg, Fla. Quarterback Tyler Hansen and offensive guard Ryan Miller will look to impress NFL scouts, as they both received invitations to the game, according to Kyle Ringo of Buffzone.com.

Miller is likely the better prospect of the two, but quarterback is always the attention-getter on the field, making Hansen a player to follow. As Ringo points out, Hansen would be the first Buffs quarterback selected in the draft since 1997 when Koy Detmer was a seventh-round pick. Hansen is likely to be taken in the same round if a team wants to take a shot with him. If not, maybe the Denver Broncos would want to sign him as an undrafted free agent and him some training camp experience. He certainly wouldn't be in any place to challenge Tim Tebow.

Miller, though, made a couple of All-American teams and is likely to be selected in Rounds 4-7.

In 2011, the Buffs had two first-round selection in tackle Nate Solder and cornerback Jimmy Smith. Jalil Brown and Scotty McKnight were off the board in the fourth and seventh rounds, respectively.
