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.
Joey Ivie killing it in reps. Gets skinny and can burst out of it. None of the OL stopping the Florida DT. Looks like a 5T— Jeff Risdon (@JeffRisdon) January 17, 2017

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."
