Texas U.S. Army AA Scouting Reports-Part 2

With Scout.com partnering with the U.S. Army and Sportslink, we're going to bring Scout.com subscribers massive coverage of the event. We continue our Texas U.S. Army All-American Scouting reports, with evals on <b>R.J. Jackson</b>, <b>Jamaal Charles</b> and <b>Todd Walker</b>...

Texas Hot 100 #9 R.J. Jackson (5-11/200/4.52): The Houston Westside prep is a very impressive athlete who can literally do it all from the running back position. He can run, block and catch. So good is his ability to catch the ball that if he's not utilized in the passing game like USC's Reggie Bush, then it'll be a travesty. With R.J.'s size as a RB, he projects to be very durable for the collegiate level and has shown on the high school level he can move the pile and rip off huge chunks of yardage. The Houston Westside tailbacks also has the skills to play defensive back and would make any team on the next level a heckuva safety. Kid truly is an athlete. NFL Comparison: Indianapolis Colts RB Edgerrin James

Texas Hot 100 #11 Jamaal Charles 6-0/190/4.44): The Port Arthur Memorial tailback offers true take-it-to-the-house speed. He can be seen on film showing incredible patience, waiting for his blocks to develop before finding the perfect seem to exploit. And once he finds his hole, he can accelerate as well or better than anyone in the country. To become the complete back, he'll need to work a little more on his blocking and ball security. But his raw ability, incredible vision and sprinter's speed sets him apart from most tailbacks in the country. NFL Comparison: Washington Redskins RB Clinton Portis

Texas Hot 100 #14 Todd Walker (6-1/178/4.33): The Pflugerville QB is cut from the same cloth as Cincinnati Bengal QB Jeff Garcia in terms of being able to make things happen with his feet. He has a good arm, decent accuracy and is absolutely terrific on the broken play, being able to make plays with his feet and arm while on the move. The first thing you notice on film is this kid's competitiveness and his sensational 4.3 forty speed. And, it is that speed that has several teams thinking he can make a living at one of the wideout positions. Both Miami and Texas offered the kid as an athlete, but he ultimately decided on Texas Tech to play WR in Mike Leach's offense. With his 6-1-height and ridiculous speed, he could develop into a big play receiver. NFL Comparison: Kansas City WR Eddie Kennison

In Part 3 of our series, we will provide scouting reports on Roy Miller, Brandon Tatum and Marcus Shavers.
