ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Goodbye spread offense, hello pro-style attack.

Former NFL coaches Brad Childress and Bobby Ross have a good understanding of what it takes for college prospects to succeed on the next level. They are showing players in Saturday's East-West Shrine all-star game things that will help them showcase their skills for scouts and others evaluating their potential.

While many of the players likely to be drafted early in the NFL draft are headed to Mobile, Ala., for next week's Senior Bowl, the standouts that Childress and Ross have worked with over the past week are getting an opportunity to impress teams that might consider selecting them in later rounds.
