J.J. Denman / OL / Fariless Hills (PA) Pennsbury HS
Highly touted offensive tackle had a rough time the first day a camp, struggling with his hand placement and footwork in pass-pro. On Day two, Denman rebounded with the type of performance you'd from a four star prospect. Denman has long arms, he was able to use that length to get his hands inside the defensive linemen and dive them away from the play.
Adam DePietro / OL / Lancaster (PA) Lancaster Catholic HS
The surprise of the camp! DePietro performed very well on both days and really had his way in the 1 on 1's. He has a flat back, is a natural knee bender, and has above average athleticism. DePietro was the only player to defeat Kenny Bigelow, and he did it multiple times. DePietro could be a guard or tackle depending on how much weight his frame can handle.
Omari Palmer / OL / Middle Island (NY) Longwood HS
Moves very well for a guy his size, and was fundamentally sound during the drills. Palmer was out standing in pass pro, he was able to pop and tag, never really allowing defenders to get their hands on him. Looks like a very sold right tackle prospect.
Ryan Brodie / OL / Long Branch (NJ) Long Branch HS
He's still a couple years way from where he needs to be, but his potential is through the roof. Brodie is long and lean; he has good feet, and is very coachable. I can eventually see him bulking up as 290 pound left tackle prospect at the next level.
Donald Knox / OL / Eldersburg (MD) Century HS
Knox deserves to be on this list because he brings it on every snap. He has great size and strength despite only being a sophomore. Knox doesn't say much, but he quietly went about his business and won his fair share of 1 on 1 battles.
Eli Ankou / DL / Orleans (ON) St. Peters HS
Physically, Ankou is off the charts. He's a very explosive off the edge and uses his hands extremely well. He was outstanding during the drills and 1 on 1's. Ankou will play his senior season in the states to prove to prove his game translates to the states.
Kenny Bigelow / DL / Lancaster (Del) Red Lion Christian Academy
Not only does this class of 2013 star look the part, but he competes at a very high level. Bigelow is chiseled and well proportioned from head to toe; he looks like a college practicing with high school kids. It's unreal. Bigelow has power and speed to his game already, which made him hard to handle. If all else fails, he has a spin move that he uses very effectively. Auburn was the first to offer Bigelow, and I'm sure he'll have many more coming within the next year and a half. He'll be a five star recruit when the time comes.
Michael Moore / DL / Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha Catholic
One of the top players in the east at his position, Moore really proved why at this event. He runs well, has great strength, and has a lot of versatility to his game. Moore won a very high percentage of his 1 on 1 battles because of his length and quick first step. He had a grueling tug of war battle with JJ Denman that he almost won. Moore was really impressive.
