East vs. West Shrine Game: Colorado State TE Kivon Cartwright earns invite

Colorado State tight end Kivon Cartwright will play in the East-West Shrine Game

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Colorado State Rams tight end Kivon Cartwright is getting an extra crack at impressing NFL scouts as he earned an invite to the East vs. West All-Star game. This is the longest All-Star game as the 2016 edition will be its 91st on Jan. 23.

This past year, Cartwright caught 18 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns this season and has 75 career catches for 1,136 yards. He is the 16th rated tight end prospect according to CBSSports.com's draft big board and is a very fringe draft prospect.

He is the third Rams player to earn an invite to a post season game as cornerback DeAndre Elliott and tackle Sam Carlson will play in the NFL Players Association Collegiate Bowl which is also on Jan. 23.

Colorado State has one last game to play this year as they are taking on Nevada in the newly formed Arizona Bowl on Dec. 29. in Tucson, Arizona.
