51. RB Jay Bradford - (Class of 2015)

School: Splendora HS
HT: 5'10 | WT: 190
Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M

Scout Breakdown: Typical small school star. Has that extra gear and speed that is just so dangerous when he gets in the open field or a breath of daylight. Once he gets that crease he is usually gone. Put up great 40-yard dash times in team camps, reportedly running sub 4.4s. He is a plant and go type of runner.


52. TE Kaden Smith - (Class of 2016)

School: Marcus HS
HT: 6'6 | WT: 250
Recruiting: Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma

Scout Breakdown: A well-rounded tight end prospect, who played well as a freshamn against a high level of competition. He can block and will get better as he matures. He also has soft hands and is an offensive playmaker.


53. WR Keenen Brown - (Class of 2014)

School: Taylor HS
HT: 6'3 | WT: 185
Recruiting: Committed to Oklahoma State

Scout Breakdown: Brown is a big, strong receiver. He is pretty polished. He possesses outstanding ball skills, and is a solid blocker. He runs crisp and precise routes and he separates well. Shows great concentration and strong hands, which helps him make the tough catch.


54. WR Kemah Siverand - (Class of 2015)

School: Cypress Ridge HS
HT: 6'0 | WT: 180
Recruiting: Texas A&M, Texas, TCU, Oklahoma State

Scout Breakdown: He creates great separation and can sink his hips in and out his breaks. Good hand, eye coordination. Looks the ball in and catches away from his body. Did not have a ton of production as a sophomore, but has good highlight tape considering limited clips, so look for him to be much more of a weapon going forward.


55. RB Donald Catalon - (Class of 2014)

School: Eisenhower HS
HT: 5'11 | WT: 195
Recruiting: Committed to Texas

Scout Breakdown: He is elusive and accelerates very quickly which allows him to escape the grasp of would be tacklers, but will need to continue to get stronger to break free of defenders more easily. His quicks and explosiveness make him especially dangerous on the cut-back plays, which are his biggest gains.


56. RB JaMycal Hasty - (Class of 2015)

School: Longview HS
HT: 5'8 | WT: 185
Recruiting: Texas Tech, Texas, TCU, Baylor

Scout Breakdown: He runs hard and is constantly shifting and moving, making his legit 4.4 speed look even faster. He is small and hard for defensive linemen to see behind the offensive line and then he is a blur as he runs past them. He is also an excellent receiver, taking underneath passes and turning them in to big gains.


57. CB John Plattenburg - (Class of 2014)

School: Lamar HS
HT: 5'11 | WT: 187
Recruiting: Wisconsin, Washington State, Washington, Vanderbilt, Utah, UCLA, Texas Tech, Tennessee, TCU, San Diego State

Scout Breakdown: Plattenburg is very well put together, plays physical at the line and has very good feet. He competes hard on every play, has a serious edge to him and closes well on the ball. He's a pure lockdown corner, who's gotten bigger since football season, and has shown the ball skills and instincts college coaches covet.


58. WR Jamal Jeffery - (Class of 2014)

School: Lufkin HS
HT: 5'9 | WT: 170
Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M

Scout Breakdown: His game is likely destined to be in the slot in college, where he can uses his speed and natural running and play making abilities to set up mismatches. He has good hands and leaping skills as well, making him a well-rounded receiver, who just always seems to be open.


59. WR Carlos Strickland - (Class of 2015)

School: Skyline HS
HT: 6'5 | WT: 190
Recruiting: SMU

Scout Breakdown: Strickland is the tall and wiry wide receiver who always seems to be open. He runs clean routes and then uses his size and reach to make sure catches. He still has some things to prove on the field, only getting his hands on 10 balls as a sophomore.


60. S J.W. Ketchum - (Class of 2015)

School: Marshall HS
HT: 6'1 | WT: 190
Recruiting: Texas A&M, Texas, LSU, Baylor

Scout Breakdown: Not really fair to list him as a safety. May not even be the spot he ends up. He is an excellent dual- threat quarterback prospect and could also slide out and likely be an excellent receiver as well. Has good size and speed. Reminds you of any number of high school players in the same athletic mold.
