LonghornDigest.com 2014 Texas Top 50

The LonghornDigest.com Texas Top 50 countdown continues with some big-time athletes.

36) Aaron Sharp, QB, Humble Summer Creek

Picture a 6-3 quarterback who completed 65 percent of his throws, while passing for 3,057 yards and 38 touchdowns to six interceptions. Now, give that same player 21.29 speed in the 200-meter dash. That's Sharp. He has a bit of funk to his release that he could stand to clean up, but it's hard to argue with those tools and that production.

37) T'Kevian Rockwell, S/LB, Wylie

Rockwell (6-1 200) probably projects best at linebacker at the next level, but here's the thing: Rockwell was clocked as fast as 10.46 a year ago, with a fastest official time of 10.63 in the 100-meter dash. That's moving. Whatever his position, Rockwell is a big-time player with tremendous upside.

38) Keenen Brown, WR, Alief Taylor

Brown could be up higher on this list. He's a tall, long outside receiver who can make plays while under tight coverage. But that's the problem: against really good corners, he can struggle to separate a bit. But in terms of height, length and straight-line speed, he's a good pick.

39) Marcus Green, CB, Cedar Hill — Oklahoma

At 6-1 180, Green has the frame to turn into a safety, but the athleticism and cover skills to stick at corner. He was tremendous in Cedar Hill's run to the state title game this past fall, and he's drawn comparisons to former Richardson Berkner standout and current New England Patriot Aqib Talib.

40) Samaje Perine, RB, Pflugerville Hendrickson — Oklahoma

Perine will enter Oklahoma as a running back, but it isn't hard to look at what the Sooners do with Trey Millard and picture Perine excelling in a similar role. This spring, the Hendrickson standout, who has seemingly been on the radar forever, weighed in at 233 pounds … and ran a 4.53 40-yard dash.
