Miami NFTC: The MVP's

The Nike Football Training Camp hit Miami on Sunday and there was outstanding talent on the field. Here is a look at who took home the MVP's for each position.

Quarterback: Sean White

The University School signal caller's two best attributes---accuracy and consistency---were on full display Sunday. White possesses the ability to make all the throws and is one of the most heavily recruited QBs in the state of Florida.

Running Back: Joseph Yearby

The Miami commitment out of Miami Central showed off his unbelievable feet, balance, and explosiveness while shining in every phase of the game. The best part about his game is that he is even better in pads. Yearby seems to be an instant impact type performer at the next level.

Wide Receiver: Johnnie Dixon

Dwyer is no stranger to high D-1 talent and Dixon is the headliner in the 2014 class. Dixon possesses track speed with a very thick frame. He has definitely added weight and strength and is just beginning to scratch the surface of his ceiling.

Offensive Line: Raul Diaz

If there was a surprise MVP today it was Miami Central's Diaz as he won this honor over 4-5 very highly touted prospects that were in attendance. Diaz was physical, tough, and technically sound and figures to play inside at the next level.

Defensive Line: Chad Thomas

Thomas's ability to rush the passer was on full display Sunday and he continues to add weight to his frame. At 6-5 the Booker T. Washington product has ideal length and is one of the most productive linemen in South Florida. We love Thomas's competitive attitude and his best days are still a few years out.

Linebacker: Richard Yeargin III

Yeargin is one of the most physically imposing players on the field. Close to 6-4 the University School product did very well in coverage and is the type of versatile athlete that colleges covet. Yeargin has improved his pure speed and will fill out considerably over the next several years.

Defensive Back: Chris Lammons

Lammons has been one of the biggest stories in the recruiting world over the past six weeks as he has added double digit BCS offers. His rise continued with the MVP award on Sunday where he was the top lock-down defender. The Plantation high school QB has shown that it will be an easy transition to DB at the next level.

SPARQ MVP: Corey Holmes

Holmes has elite physical tools including a sub 4.5 40 yard dash and 37+ inch vertical. The St Thomas Aquinas wide receiver is one of the most coveted prospects in Florida.
