Michigan will be sending four seniors to the East-West Shrine Game, as right guard Kyle Kalis, right tackle Erik Magnuson, cornerback Channing Stribling, and linebacker Ben Gedeon will represent the Wolverines. The All-Star event is on January 21st in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Shrine Game usually sends invitations to players that are projected to go in the late rounds of the NFL Draft. Michigan had 19 senior starters this season, so more invitations should come, which means more players will accept.

According to Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN, Michigan could send defensive end Taco Charlton, cornerback Jourdan Lewis, tight end Jake Butt, defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow, wide receiver Amara Darboh, and wide receiver Jehu Chesson to the Senior Bowl on January 28th in Mobile, Alabama. The Senior Bowl is the best pre-draft All-Star Game.

While the Senior Bowl is the top-tier All-Star Game and the Shrine Game is right in the middle, there is also the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on January 21st in Dominguez Hills, California. The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl is a low-tier All-Star Game.
