61. CB Holton Hill - (Class of 2015)

School: Lamar HS
HT: 6'2 | WT: 175
Recruiting: Texas Tech, TCU, SMU, Houston, Baylor

Scout Breakdown: Much like teammate and top 2014 recruit John Bonney, Hill is a versatile defensive back, who could actually end up playing safety or corner on the next level. He has terrific size and a frame that looks like he will be much bigger by the time he leaves high school.


62. DT Zaycoven Henderson - (Class of 2014)

School: Longview HS
HT: 6'3 | WT: 303
Recruiting: Committed to TCU

Scout Breakdown: He plays with a good pad level and gets off of his blocks quickly. He is strong up top and explosive when closing on the ball carriers. He is a weapon on defense, using his combo of skills and combining with a relentless motor. He is competitive and has secured MVP honors and strong showing at elite camps.


63. DE James Lockhart - (Class of 2015)

School: Ennis HS
HT: 6'4 | WT: 250
Recruiting: Texas, TCU, Baylor

Scout Breakdown: A strong defender, who shows a high acumen for tracking down ball carriers in the open field, which shows his athleticism and pursuit skills right away on film. He is really good against the run. He is not your long, rangy style of defensive linemen, but rather more of the stout type.


64. WR Chad President - (Class of 2015)

School: Temple HS
HT: 6'3 | WT: 190
Recruiting: Committed to Baylor

Scout Breakdown: He will be making the move to quarterback after getting his initial shine at wide receiver. The jury is still sort of out on what position he ends up playing in college at this point and time may help clear some of that up. As a receiver, he showed good ability.


65. S Payton Hendrix - (Class of 2014)

School: Bishop Dunne HS
HT: 6'2 | WT: 190
Recruiting: Washington, Tulsa, Texas Tech, Stanford, Southern Miss, SMU, North Texas, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nebraska

Scout Breakdown: He's good in coverage and has good ball instincts. The thing that jumps out of it when watching him is his open field tracking and tackling ability. He can really pack a punch, but he can also break down and make sound tackles. He anticipates well whether it is in run support or in pass coverage assignments.


66. RB Kevin Shorter - (Class of 2014)

School: Newton HS
HT: 6'0 | WT: 180
Recruiting: Committed to Texas

Scout Breakdown: He has a nice frame to add more weight to and as he gets stronger he will have an easier time breaking and running through tackles. Has the ability to stay on his feet after taking a tough hit, maintaining his balance through traffic and pick up extra yardage.


67. CB Chris Hardeman - (Class of 2014)

School: Taylor HS
HT: 5'9 | WT: 178
Recruiting: Committed to Oklahoma State

Scout Breakdown: He plays a very physical style of coverage and often knocks receivers off their routes. He shows an good burst and the ability to change direction out of his back pedal. He takes very good angles to ball carriers and is not afraid to get inside the box and mix it up.


68. QB Foster Sawyer - (Class of 2014)

School: All Saints' Episcopal School
HT: 6'5 | WT: 215
Recruiting: Committed to TCU

Scout Breakdown: A calm, cool character in the pocket. He has a great frame and has the height to see over the top of the biggest offensive line. His calm demeanor allows him to make sound reads and accurate throws. Nice blend of skills and upside.


69. QB Kyler Murray - (Class of 2015)

School: Allen HS
HT: 5'11 | WT: 170
Recruiting: Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Texas, Ohio State, Clemson, Arkansas, Arizona State

Scout Breakdown: Typically, quarterbacks with his size are not rated as highly, but that speaks to the type of talent he possesses. Led his team to a 5A state title in Texas as a sophomore, showing a high acumen to read the field and make plays with his arm or his legs. He is a very accurate passer.


70. OT Zach Ledwik - (Class of 2014)

School: La Grange HS
HT: 6'5 | WT: 273
Recruiting: Committed to Texas A&M

Scout Breakdown: This kid is about ceiling. He will need to get bigger and stronger, but is also bringing a lot to the table. First off he has great feet, which allow him to stay in front of defenders on the pass rush. He is also very quick off of the ball and can get on blocks and to the second level in the blink of an eye.
