Stanford Nike: Positional MVPs takes look at the positional MVPs at last weekend's Stanford Nike Camp as selected by the camp's coaches, including many UCLA prospects...

Stanford Nike Football Training Camp MVPs

Zach Kline
Quarterback, Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley
Snubbed a year ago for the Quarterback MVP at the Stanford NFTC, Kline left no doubt this year, earning MVP honors and standing out as arguably the top skill prospect across the board on Sunday. Kline has really blossomed into one of the elite quarterbacks nationally, already holding a strong and accurate arm, but really improving in the other facets of the position- footwork, decision making and touch. Kline also has a pretty magnetic personality and was overheard recruiting guys to Cal, where he's commited.

Robert Lewis
Running Back, South Gate (Calif.) South East
In the group of backs, Lewis stood out.  An electric back, Lewis is still pretty slight, but you can't argue his quickness and shiftiness

Davonte' Neal
Receiver, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral
Neal has been to numerous camps over the years, including Nike Camps, and finally earned an elusive MVP award at Stanford.  Neal's an explosive athlete and could play on either side of the ball, and play it well.  While his best position in college might be cornerback, Neal is a very talented receiver and he had the number of the cornerbacks and safeties on Sunday.

Isaac Seumalo
Offensive Line, Corvallis (Ore.)
In a group that included four Scout 300 lineman, it was Seumalo who had the best day, earning MVP honors, which were well deserved.  The four-star guard didn't lose a single one-on-one, and ended the day with a pancake where he very simply chucked the defensive lineman he matched up with.  Seumalo has very good agility and tremendous strength and his footwork was probably the best of any offensive lineman there.

Dwight Melvin
Defensive Line, Laveen (Ariz.) Fairfax
The OL's were talented, but the one defensive lineman they could not stop was Melvin.  He fires off the ball, has great quickness and technique and was impossible to block. He didn't lose a one-on-one the entire day and was the easy pick for DL MVP.  He got the best of Jeremiah Poutasi a couple of times.

Daniel Halverson
Linebacker, Portland (Ore.) Grant
The linebacker corps was pretty stout and it was a sleeper type who won the MVP award in Halverson.  We saw Halverson at the U.S. Army Combine and he was excellent there and he continues to blossom and had a great day in the positional drills and the one-on-one's.  Halverson moves well laterally and in space and has good, active hands.

Donte Deayon
Defensive Back, Fontana (Calif.) Summit
Deayon, had a great week that got greater with the MVP award.  Deayon got his first offer earlier in the week, from Boise State, and with the pressure of that first offer gone, Deayon went out and locked up the receivers.
