Tony Pauline’s Shrine Bowl Practice Report: Risers and Sliders from Day 2 include Trestan Ebner, Damarion Williams, Jerreth Sterns

Who were the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl Risers and Sliders from Day 2 of practice? PFN's Chief Draft Analyst Tony Pauline weighs in.

The second day of practices from the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl gave us another terrific glimpse of some of the best college football had to offer in 2021. Those performances absolutely deserve to have their NFL Draft stock boosted and be labeled as Shrine Bowl Risers after Day 2 of practices (we’ll also mention a few Shrine Bowl Sliders).

Want more after reading this? PFN Draft Director Cam Mellor has also published his Day 2 Risers and Sliders from Shrine Bowl practice today (Sunday, January 30). 

Shrine Bowl Practice No. 2: Risers

Under glorious sunshine in Las Vegas, Day 2 of Shrine Bowl practice has been completed. Here’s a look at the players who made my Shrine Bowl Risers list.

Trestan Ebner, RB, Baylor

Trestan Ebner caught the ball exceptionally well and looked terrific in running drills. He’s exceptionally quick and runs with outstanding balance.

Damarion Williams, CB, Houston

Damarion Williams showed a lot of what I’ve not seen on him from the film — terrific fundamentals with a great backpedal and quick hip turn.

Jerreth Sterns, WR, Western Kentucky

Jerreth Sterns was good yesterday and even better today. Opponents struggled to cover him, and he made a number of terrific catches.

Baylon Spector, LB, Clemson

Baylon Spector made several productive plays in drills and the scrimmage. He stacked well against the run and also made plays in space.

The fact he has a cast on his right arm, which covers his entire hand and extends to the elbow, made his play even more impressive.

Ty Chandler, RB, North Carolina

Ty Chandler had several nice runs and caught the ball well out of the backfield during today’s Shrine Bowl practice.

Darien Butler, LB, Arizona State

Darien Butler looked very athletic and covered a terrific amount of area on the field, making plays sideline to sideline.

Kyler McMichael, CB, North Carolina

Kyler McMichael was good on Saturday, yet near dominant today. He was one of the best DBs in drills, shut down his man in the scrimmage, and he also came away with a nice interception. An easy decision to place him on our Shrine Bowl Risers list today.

Keaontay Ingram, RB, Texas

Keaontay Ingram got better and better as the Shrine Bowl practice progressed. He caught the ball well and looked good turning the corner after taking handoffs.

Tay Martin, WR, Oklahoma State

If Tay Martin wasn’t the best receiver on the field for the West squad this morning, he was close to it. He ran terrific routes, separating from opponents, and caught the ball extremely well.

Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia

Jelani Woods was quicker and faster in person than what is seen on film. He’s a huge mountain of a man and an imposing target who caught the ball well. He also dominated in blocking drills.

Isaih Pacheco, RB, Rutgers

Isaih Pacheco was outstanding. I saw 2 touchdown catches he made, one on a deep route and the other a screen pass. He also had several nice runs, showing the ability to quickly cut back against the grain or pick his way through the traffic.

Tre Walker, LB, Idaho

Tre Walker is a rough and aggressive linebacker who was always willing to get involved in the action. He also displayed some surprising speed and athleticism.

Kyle Philips, WR, UCLA

Kyle Philips was good yesterday but had scouts buzzing on Sunday. He plays with incredible quickness and shows a burst. He’s a precise route runner who catches the ball extremely well.

Pierre Strong, RB, South Dakota State

Wow! What a day for Pierre Strong. He beat the defense carrying the ball, catching it out of the backfield or grinding it out on the inside. Multiple times he left defenders grasping for air with his ability to make them miss.

Ronnie Rivers, RB, Fresno State

Ronnie Rivers is small, even tiny for that matter, but extremely quick and tough. He slipped through the arms of defenders carrying the ball and showed himself to be a legitimate pass-catching threat.

DQ Thomas, LB, MTSU

DQ Thomas looked super fast and explosive. He has a burst to the action and was able to arrive on the scene in no time at all. And despite being undersized, he regularly threw his body around the field.

Shrine Bowl Practice No. 2: Sliders

One prospect had a rough day at practice. However, there’s still precious time to demonstrate resiliency.

Jean Delance, OL, Florida

Jean Delance struggled most of the day and gave up a terrible sack during the scrimmage. He’s the lone prospect on our Shrine Bowl Sliders list.
