Broncos spotted talking to Quinton Flowers and Jordan Thomas at Shrine Game

Jordan Thomas and Hunter Bradley may have been teammates at Mississippi State but today they will be on opposing sides in the 93rd East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The last Red Raider to play in the East-West Shrine game was former quarterback Seth Doege and Los Angeles Rams safety Cody Davis in 2012, according to a Tech Athletics news release. Dunbar, who caught the game-winner, had 52 yards on his three catches.

Flowers (6-0, 210 pounds) completed 57.7 percent of his passes in college for 8,124 yards and 71 passing touchdowns against 23 interceptions.

Colorado running back Phillip Lindsay had 12 carries for 51 yards for the West. Oklahoma receiver Jeff Badet led that side with five receptions and had 42 yards.

Northern Iowa's Daurice Fountain, who had three catches for 61 yards, set up Martin's TD with a 30-yard punt return and a 16-yard reception.

On a day when offenses were struggling, former Texas Tech quarterback Nic Shimonek found a way to keep himself in front of the eyes of the National Football League scouts. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m. CT on NFL Network.

"Ford doesn't meet the NFL's standard for height at defensive tackle, but the 5'11", 309-pounder has been an anchor in the middle of Texas' defensive line and all week at the Shrine Game. The fumble was set up by a Bilal Nichols sack that forced a J.T. Barrett screen attempt to go backwards where Jamerson was able to scoop the ball up and run untouched into the end zone.
