Lowry, Vitale, VanHoose accept invites to the East-West Shrine Game

Northwestern Seniors Dan Vitale, Nick VanHoose and Dan Lowry have all accepted invites to the East-West Shrine Game, an College All-Star game that gives college players a chance to showcase their talents to NFL scouts.

Of the three, only Vitale is projected to be drafted at the moment, but that could change based on how they perform through the rest of the season, in the Shrine Game and in offseason workouts. Vitale is projected by CBSSports.com to be a late round pick, ranked as the No. 2 fullback in the 2016 draft behind Glenn Gronkowski.

This season, Vitale leads all Northwestern players with 9 catches for 317 yards and 3 touchdowns, averaging 11.7 yards per catch.

On the defensive side of the ball, Lowry has 38 tackles (24 solo), 11.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, 4 quarterback hits, 4 pass breakups, 1 interception and 1 blocked kick. VanHoose has 29 tackles (20 solo), 2 interceptions, including a pick six against Nebraska, 9 pass breakups and 1 quarterback hit.
