2015 Top Midlands DTs
http://media.scout.com/media/image/123/1233310.jpg 1 Daylon Mack Gladewater  Texas 6'1/330 Texas A&M
Junior Eval: Has proven himself against elite level competition at The Opening, but you have to love the energy and determination he brough to the table during Gladewater's playoff run. Winner. Competitor.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/129/1297740.jpg 2 Darrion Daniels Bishop Dunne  Texas 6'4/275 Undecided
Junior Eval: Plays both ways in high school and rarely gets to miss snaps, and he is a disruotive force still at his size and weight, Just imagine what he will be able to do once he settles in on one side in college.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1301906.jpg 3 Carlos Davis Blue Springs  Missouri 6'3/270 Nebraska
Junior Eval: Davis is one of these freakish big men, who is not only strong but extremely athletic. He has great explosion and is a disruptive force on every snap. High energy defensive tackle.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/117/1172102.jpg 4 Du'Vonta Lampkin Cypress Falls  Texas 6'4/295 Texas
Junior Eval: Big, raw powerful defensive tackle prospect. A great duo of height and overall size. Shows a good understanding how to take on blockers, squaring up on pulling guards and then taking good angles to the runner.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/136/1360919.jpg 5 Marquise Overton Jenks  Oklahoma 6'2/301 Oklahoma
Junior Eval: Overton looks like a real warrior lining up inthe trenches with his neck roll and then he plays like one as well. Plays for what is known as the top defense in the state, and many would argue that defense starts up front with him. 
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1306075.jpg 6 Kingsley Keke George Ranch High Texas 6'4/280 Texas A&M
Junior Eval: He possesses a good get-off at the snap and is a fluid athlete for a player with such a large frame and obvious mass. He's active in pursuit when flushing quarterbacks from the pocket.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/127/1274784.jpg 7 Taaj Bakari Mansfield Legacy  Texas 6'2/287 Oklahoma State
Junior Eval: He is overpowering at times to high school OL and you can clearly see his upside once he makes the move to the interior. He can control the gap.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/130/1302188.jpg 8 Khalil Davis Blue Springs  Missouri 6'2/260 Nebraska
Junior Eval: Khalil isn't as gifted with the raw tools of Carlos, but still possesses great size, and makes up for it with his tenacity and motor. Plays with a relentless style.
http://media.scout.com/media/image/131/1312077.jpg 9 Joseph Broadnax Bryan Adams  Texas 6'0/305 TCU
Junior Eval: Watching the tape the first thing that jumps out is the type of quickness and athleticism he has for a prospect who is listed at 300 pounds. He uses his quickness to put offensive linemen at a disadvantage


Bryce English De Soto  Texas 5'11/315 UCLA
Junior Eval: He is a disruptive force up front. He gets off the ball quickly and plays with an energy that can really be appreciated for a defensive tackle.
