Four departing Arizona Wildcats officially ended their college careers Saturday as they took part in NFL showcase games.
Shawn Poindexter participated in the annual East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida, while Shun Brown, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, and Layth Friekh all participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Game in Pasadena, California.
Poindexter highlighted the day with a 23-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter of the Shrine Game from North Dakota State quarterback Easton Stick. That touchdown gave the West team a 21-0 lead in what turned into a 21-17 victory for the West. Poindexter finished the game with four catches for 71 yards. (Unfortunately, we could not find any stats from the NFLPA bowl.)

Attention now turns to see which if any Wildcats receive an invite to the NFL Combine.
