HOUSTON -- Here's a look at the players who stuggles and some who surprised during East-West Shrine game week.

Failed to impress

1. Missouri QB Chase Daniel
Daniel didn't have a great week of practice. The undersized quarterback clearly had some problems scanning the field from within the pocket and didn't put great velocity on his downfield passes. However, we felt that Daniel, who is a fierce competitor, would perform better in the game. Instead he completed just 2 of 9 passes for one yard and struggled to locate the strike zone. Making matters worse for Daniel, Michigan State QB Brian Hoyer, who replaced him late in the first quarter, shined in comparison.
