Well that should help his prospects as he makes his case for being ready for the NFL.

University of Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne threw and ran his National Team to a 20-14 victory in the AstroTurf NFLPA Collegiate Bowl Game this past Saturday afternoon at the Home Depot Center.

Kinne rushed for a 20-yard touchdown in the first half to give the National Team a 17-7 halftime lead. He was also 6-for-9 passing for 79 yards. Kinne’s score gave the National Team a 17-0 lead.

“I just wanted to come in and show that I could compete against the best of the best, and we were able to win the game which was great for us and a matter of pride,” Kinne told News On 6, a local California affiliate.

Kinne's NFL prospects certainly got a bump from this performance. Experts predict he will be picked in the last round of the 2012 NFL draft, which takes place on April 26 in New York City. Failing that, Kinne can sign on with a team as a free agent.
