Here are some of the camp standouts of defensive linemen from the Miami Nike Football Training Camp.

Here are some of the camp standouts of defensive linemen from the Miami Nike Football Training Camp.

Marlon Gonzalez (North Fort Myers)
Gonzalez showed the physicality and motor that he is known for. Nobody went harder in one ones and he won the vast majority of his reps. At 6-foot-3, 255-pounds he could wide up playing anywhere along the defensive line as well as potentially moving to the other side of the ball to offensive guard. Gonzalez has a great first step and really moves like a linebacker.

Wyatt Ray (Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas)
Ray has put in the work in the weight room and has added 15-20 pounds of muscle already in the off-season. He did not stand out in any one category, but was rock solid across the board and is certainly a prospect to watch during the coming weeks and months.

Brandon Boyce (Ft. Lauderdale St Thomas Aquinas)
Boyce was one of the transfers to St. Thomas Aquinas from University School. He is made for the camp circuit where his explosive first step and competitiveness make him tough to block. The Duke verbal is under-sized, but few players are as good on the field.

Fermin Silva (Miami Central)
The latest in what is becoming a long line of Miami Central defensive line/linebacker types, Silva was a dominant rusher off the edge. He also displayed the all around athleticism in drills to slide back to linebacker if need be. Silva is always around the football on Friday nights.

Ronique Robinson (Miami Booker T Washington)
Robinson is making the transition from the basketball court to the football field. He is extremely raw, but at 6-foot-5 plus with a long, athletic frame, it is easy to see the potential that this young man possesses down the road. He has tools that can't be taught.

Jarred McGahee (Coral Gables, Fla.)
