16) Nick Watkins, CB, Dallas Bishop Dunne
A lot of people will have Watkins higher than this, and I don't necessarily disagree. He's a 6-foot-1 corner who can really run, and who plays the ball really well. The only question mark, for me, is his competition. Can he match up with the elite receivers in this class? It remains to be seen. But he's a big-time talent.
Roberson is an interesting prospect for a rush end because he isn't quite as explosive off the ball as you'd think he would be for a 6-3, 215-pound guy. But he makes up for that with exceptional fluidity and change-of-direction. Roberson also plays with a physical nature counter to his currently slender build.
A&M struck a major in-state blow with their landing of Walker over the in-state Longhorns. Walker is athletic enough that many think he could play running back at a BCS school, which means he'll be just perfect as an SEC linebacker. Very fast and awfully physical as well.
Edward Paris might get the majority of the headlines as an elite prospect, but Simmons is probably actually a better football player right now. Simmons does an outstanding job of finding the ball, and he has the size and range to play either safety spot at the next level.
20) Lorenzo Joe, WR, Abilene Cooper — Texas
When Texas picked up a commitment from Joe, it seemed like a nice solid pickup. Joe was a nice smooth player who was probably a B+ in everything he did. But he's kept improving, and has even now grown to almost 6-3, making him a very good outside receiver prospect. An underrated athlete with soft hands.
