Evaluation Calloway has some very unique skills. He carries himself with confidence and plays the game with an edge at the position, which I love and you do need some of that swagger when pitted against elite receivers. He is able to stay in a receivers hip pocket and will come up and lay a big hit. He is very quick in and out of his breaks and his burst and change of direction are at the top of the charts. He shows a nose for the football, as seen in his special teams plays where he is a kick blocking specialist. -GP *****

Evaluation Samuels III is how you draw up big-time corners in todays game. Size can be looked at as a strength or area for improvement because his length is off the charts, but yet he is thin, so he needs to add mass/strength. He gets his hands on a lot of passes and his recovery speed is a real strength. Not afraid to come up and make a play against the run. Very instinctive player, can bait the quarterback, and then make a play on the ball. *****

Evaluation Gibbs is a special talent. He can do about anything you want on the football field from an athletic standpoint. He is best at wide receiver entering his junior season, but cornerback or safety may be where he ends up down the road. He is very fluid and he can really run with the best as a defensive back. His ball skills, body control, and speed are strengths on either side of the ball. Just a natural star.
