Florida Gators' Joey Ivie impressing scouts at East-West Shrine Game




ST. PETERSBURG - The East-West Shrine Game is all about uncovering some potential underrated NFL draft prospects.

One who seems to be helping himself this week is Joey Ivie, a defensive lineman from Florida and Pasco High.

The outsiders' consensus is that Ivie's biggest strength is his motor. The 6-foot-3, 298-pound tackle agrees.

"It's my motor," Ivie told our Joey Knight earlier this week. "But I feel like I can pass rush anywhere from the three (technique) to the shade. I feel like I can play multiple positions. I'm going to bust my butt, give it all I've got, be a team player."
