Seven of the ten visiting prospects are lineman that will perhaps be the future up front players for the Pack. Mario Williams will be in this group.

Also, Florida players continued to be targeted as six of the ten players are from the Sunshine State.

Below, is the list of players that the Insiders have confirmed will be in Raleigh this weekend.

DE Mario Williams (Ht: 6-6 Wt: 255 40: 4.57): One of the nation's top defensive ends. Great size and athleticism. Played MLB last season because of injuries on his team. A future strong side end. Super leadership and very intelligent. Will graduate in December.

DE Stanley McClover (Ht: 6-4 Wt: 236 40: 4.5): Stan McClover of Fort Lauderdale Dillard, Florida is one of the top defensive ends in the country. He played mainly offensive tackle as a junior, but moves to DE for his final season. He has good size, great speed, and quickness.

DE Raymond Brooks (Ht: 6-4 Wt: 240 40: 4.6): Raymond plays fullback and defensive end for the Millionaires. Some Division I coaching staffs are even envisioning him as a linebacker. He averaged nearly 7 yards per carry and totaled over 700 yards rushing with 8 touchdowns. On defense, he had approximately 94 tackles including 12 sacks and 13 tackles for a loss.

DE Brandon Jones (Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 226 40: 4.8): Defensive end prospect with good pass rushing skills. Missed 3 games a a junior because of a broken arm. Still recorded 50 tackles and 8 sacks as a junior.

OL Andrew Bain (Ht: 6-3 Wt: 340 40: 5.0): Bain had a terrific Nike Camp at Miami. Runs exceptionally well for a big man. Plays center and guard and could project at either position at the next level. Super run blocker at this stage. Averaged 3 pancake blocks per game last season

OL Cyrim Wimbs (Ht: 6-4 Wt: 317 40: 5.1): Cyrim Wimbs of Pompano Beach Ely, Florida is a totally awesome offensive tackle on film with great size and quickness. With his amazing agility and quick feet, he will probably see some time on defense this year, but after getting 55 pancake blocks as a junior, he'll find a home on the offensive side of the ball in college as a tackle. He will be heavily recruited.

OL Brandon Nixon (Ht: 6-6 Wt: 310 40: 5.2): All-Conference performer as a junior has emerged as one of the top OL prospects in Pennsylvania.

RB Darrell Blackman (Ht: 6-0 Wt: 195 40: 4.4): Darrell started on both sides of the ball for Williamsport, playing running back on offense and corner back on defense. He rushed for 2,547 yards and 32 touchdowns last season, earning 1st Team All-State honors.

CB Miguel Scott (Ht: 6-0 Wt: 180 40: 4.45): One of the top athletes in south Florida, Scott had three interceptions as a junior last season. He may also get some looks as a wide receiver.

LB Stephen Tulloch (Ht: 5-11 Wt: 217 40: 4.7): One of the top LB prospects in south Florida, Tulloch had over 100 tackles as a junior last season.

TE Jonathan Stupar (Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 250 40: 4.8): Jonathan is quickly becoming one of the most highly recruited tight-end prospects in the northeast. He had 30 catches for 360 yards, 8 TDs and 2 two-point conversions on offense, and added 75 tackles and 7 sacks on defense.
