NFTC Chicago: Defensive Line

There were some talented players on hand at the NFTC in Chicago, but two freshmen stole the show.

There were stars on hand at the Nike Football Training Camp held in Chicago last week, but it was two relative unknowns in freshman A.J. Epenesa and Juan Harris who were the buzz after the event.

Epenesa used a combination of size, speed, and strength to garner MVP honors, and Juan Harris' 370 pounds of mass had everyone talking... and getting out of his way.

See all of the top defensive linemen from the event in the highlights below.
