Jimmy Garoppolo named East-West Shrine MVP
My sleeper is rapidly becoming a riser. I have the Rams taking him in Round 3 on my latest mock, but I'm starting to think he might be gone by the end of Round 2. Heck, if he plays well at the Senior Bowl (he was added to replace A.J. McCarron), he could sneak into the first round.
Garoppolo wins MVP and raves at Shrine Game
NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah wrote that Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo was the biggest winner of Saturday's East-West Shrine Game.
Garoppolo earned offensive MVP honors for completing nine of 14 passes for 100 yards and no interceptions in the East's 23-13 victory. "Garoppolo stood out as the best player during the week of practice and he put together a strong performance during the game on Saturday," Jeremiah wrote. "He showed very quick feet in his setup, a lightning-quick release and accuracy to all three levels. I was very impressed with the command and poise he displayed in the pocket. He has built up a lot of momentum heading into the Reese's Senior Bowl (Jan. 25 on NFL Network)."
