Tracking ND players in all-star games

By Matt Fortuna

Three college all-star games take place this Saturday, making it the most popular day among postseason exhibitions. A number of former Notre Dame players will be taking the gridiron one final time before embarking on their next careers, so let's take a look at this weekend's participants, along with all of those with one more pre-professional game left in their tanks. (Joe Tessitore is on the call for the NFLPA bowl, so you know that will be a fun one.)
