Kentavius Street did basically everything that a draft prospect can do during the week of the East-West Shrine Game: he performed well in the practice sessions that are held in front of NFL scouts, and he also played well in the game.
Street ended up being one of the more talked-about players over the last week, which bodes well for his NFL Draft prospects. Roto World’s Josh Norris ranked Street as the second-best pro prospect in the Shrine Game. NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah had this to say about Street after the Shrine Game on Saturday:
Street had a great week of practice and the best get-off of any lineman in the game. The stats won’t bear it out, but he was very disruptive on Saturday. He did a lot of his damage coming off the edge, which adds to his value, but I think he’ll end up rushing from the inside once he gets to the next level. He’s a strong guy, but his game is more about his quickness. He was a little bit overshadowed playing on the same D-line with the more highly touted Bradley Chubb at N.C. State, but Street made the most of his opportunity in the spotlight at the Shrine Game.
Street accounted for 1.5 sacks in the contest. His next opportunity to impress scouts will be at the draft combine, which begins the first weekend of March. We all know that Street will post some incredible workout numbers in a few categories, on account of his being an athletic freak, so it’s hard to imagine a better platform for him.
He made himself some money this weekend, and hopefully he’ll make a little more in March.
