Lynch has something to prove


Jordan Lynch welcomes the opportunity to show he’s a better NFL prospect than some pro scouts might suspect. The Northern Illinois quarterback was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2013 and did a masterful job of running the Huskies offense over the past two seasons. Still, he entered practice for today’s East-West Shrine game (NFL Network, 1 p.m.) at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., feeling he has to prove he’s capable of being successful on the next level. “Overall, I hope I showed the scouts that I could throw the football. That was one of the biggest knocks on me,” Lynch said.
