The East-West Shrine Game is the first offseason event of the draft circuit. There are several big name 2020 NFL Draft prospects to keep an eye on.

The 95th edition of the East-West Shrine Game will be held in its usual home of Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays. Earlier in the day, we covered offensive prospects set to show out at the Shrine Game, and now we look to tackle (no pun intended) the defensive side of the ball.

Who are the defensive prospects to watch out for while they compete for a draft selection in April? There are several notable Shrine alumni populating on NFL rosters and have gone onto pretty solid pro careers. Which prospects will be the next ones in the pipeline?

A couple of these prospects will participate at the Senior Bowl on top of their duties next week. There will be a couple of prospects that stand out so much that the Senior Bowl will call them up to the main event of the draft process.

We will take a look at the key names on both East and West to watch by the position as listed by the Shrine Game staff.
