NFL Draft: Missouri's Dominique Hamilton Hopes To Shine At East-West Shrine Game

Hamilton is ranked among the underrated prospects and this time of year is the perfect time for guys like Hamilton to stand out.

The college football offseason is among us, which means a myriad of scrimmages, pro days and All-Star games are going to ensue around the NFL Scouting Combine in late February. The East-West Shrine Game is an annual game that pits some of the brighter stars of the college football landscape hoping to improve their NFL Draft stock, and Missouri defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton is one such player. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post says he's an intriguing prospect on display.

Bunting writes, "Plays the run much stronger than his frame would indicate. He's got a burst off the snap, plays with leverage and extends his long arms. Has the frame to add 15 to 20 pounds and could get some real looks as a 43 nose or even a five-technique in a 34 if he stays at 305. Either way, if he can stay healthy he looks like an intriguing 34 prospect because of his ability to win vs. the run. If he continues to improve, certainly looks worthy of a pick and a roster spot."

Hamilton is ranked among the underrated prospects and this time of year is the perfect time for guys like Hamilton to stand out. Defensive tackles are always an area of need on most NFL teams, so he will get his looks if he can perform well.
