Cunningham, Nichol compete in all-star games

For college all-star games, the practices usually mean more than the game.

That's because so many players play in the game that you can't get a fair read. Also, these games have different rules, such as no blitzing. Practice is where scouts get a better look at players. 

Nevertheless, after impressing people in practice, B.J. Cunningham had a solid day in the East/West Shrine Game in Tampa, finishing with two catches for 26 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown, for the East team. He was thrown to four times. 

In the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in southern California, Keith Nichol had one catch for 37 yards in the third quarter for the American team. He was thrown to three times. 

Here is a Q&A with Cunningham before the game from MSU, and here is one with Nichol.

Next up is the Senior Bowl on Jan. 28, where Kirk Cousins, Brian Linthicum and Trenton Robinson will compete.
