Dallas NFTC: Top Offensive Performers

Three invitations to The Opening went to offensive standouts at Saturday's Dallas Nike Football Training Camp. Here's a closer look at eight of the top performers at the event.

Patrick Vahe, 2015 OG, Euless (Texas) Trinity

Vahe, a 6-foot-4, 290-pound interior lineman who is committed to Texas, was a beast Saturday. In seven reps during 1-on-1 competition against the camp's defensive linemen, Vahe went undefeated. That had to be a major reason Vahe garnered the camp's O-line MVP award and a coveted invitation to The Opening.

Kyler Murray, 2015 QB, Allen (Texas)

At a camp that hosted several impressive quarterback prospects, including Texas Tech commit Jarrett Stidham and rising prospect Quinten Dormady, Murray stood out above the rest, earning position MVP and an invitation to The Opening. His arm strength was on full display, especially when throwing 1-on-1 balls during receiver vs. defensive back matchups, as well as the 7-on-7 portion of the event. The usual knock on Murray is his lack of size, but he more than compensated with athleticism and an insanely live arm that allowed him throw all the necessary balls. His quick release helped his receivers frequently beat their DBs on Saturday.

DaMarkus Lodge, 2015 WR, Cedar Hill (Texas)

The top receiver prospect at Saturday's Dallas NFTC performed to the level of that title. Lodge was virtually uncoverable, using his athleticism and big frame to get clean releases and break free to make catch after catch. Nike certainly noticed as Lodge left DeSoto with the receivers MVP award and an invitation to The Opening.

JaMycal Hasty, 2015 RB, Longview (Texas)

A week after committing to Baylor during a visit to the Bears' spring practice, Hasty was once again putting on a show in a camp/combine setting, something for which he's become known. Hasty, who ran a verified 4.49-second 40-yard dash, was a hand full for linebackers in 1-on-1 competition, displaying the speed, acceleration, and overall explosion that is his hallmark as a versatile four-star running back prospect.

Madison Akamnonu, 2015 OT, Arlington (Texas) Bowie

Akamnonu was undoubtedly one of the most physically impressive prospects at any position at the Dallas NFTC. He's taller than 6-foot-5 and weighed in Saturday at 269 pounds. He displayed good athleticism and has great length. His upper body has plenty of room to add positive weight. Right now, Akamnonu looks like a tight end or defensive end, but possesses the skills and strength of a tackle.

Will Gragg, 2015 TE, Pine Bluff (Ark.)

Speaking physically impressive prospects, Gragg showed his ability to comfortably adjust to balls in flight while maneuvering his huge 6-foot-4, 247-pound frame. Gragg joined fellow Arkansas tight end Jamario Bell (6-6, 225) as a pair of big pass-catchers who performed well all day Saturday.

D'Aundrey Bradley, 2015 WR, Cedar Hill (Texas)

Media members entered Saturday's competition expecting a big day from Lodge. We definitely got it, but Cedar Hill teammate D'Aundrey Bradley was a consistent playmaker, too. The 6-foot-2 prospect repeatedly beat defenders in 1-on-1 matchups, making an array of catches on various routes, short and deep, often making it look easy.

Dylan Moses, 2017 RB, Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab

Few prospects on either side of the ball and in any of the three classes present -- 2015, 2016, or 2017 -- looked as impressive on the hoof as Moses, who is a huge 6-foot-1, 225-pounder and is still a freshman in high school. But the eye test wasn't the only area in which he excelled. Moses got reps as a running back and a linebacker and impressed spectators on both sides of the ball. Moses, Hasty, and Sachse 2015 prospect Devine Ozigbo may have been the three most impressive backs at the camp.
