NLA 7on7: Day 1 Top Ten

Scout.com names the Top Ten performers from day one at the Las Vegas NLA 7on7…

TE, Dalton Schultz, Team Utah
Shultz is our top tight end in the region and looked like it today. He has a huge frame but runs like a player half his size. He was targeted often and only dropped one ball that we saw showing off a great set of hands. He can catch the ball in traffic with guys hanging on him and showed good toughness as well taking a lot of shots but holding on to the ball after contact.

S Jaleel Wadood, Snoop Dogg All-Stars
Wadood teamed with the corner on his side to absolutely shut down half the field. He didn't allow any big plays and helped his team to a 3-0 record on the day. He plays with a high football IQ and showed great closing speed.

CB Naijiel Hale, Snoop Dogg All-Stars
Hail was the most physically impressive cornerback in Vegas. He was tested early, but breakups and a near pick six alerted teams to stay away. He locked down his man and avoided giving up long passes to opponents.

WR, Tyler Whiley, Those Guys
Whiley picked up the slack with teammate Jalen Browne went down early and had a dominant day. Whiley is known just as much for his play at corner but looked like a natural pass catcher with a strong body and very soft hands. He runs well after the catch, was fearless going over the middle and showed a nice burst to get separation as well.

WR, Rahshead Johnson, Snoop Dogg All Stars
Johnson has dominated every passing event this winter already and had another big day today. He's so smooth but has explosive speed. He can outrun players and get deep and is extremely quick off the line. He catches everything with his hands and has wiggle and can make you miss in the open field. Johnson might have even more upside than his heralded former teammate and Washington signee John Ross, who we loved last year.

LB Dwight Williams, East Bay Game Breakers
Williams was the anchor of his team and did a good job limiting the yardage on short passes. He showed very well in coverage for a prospect usually known as a big hitter

CB Aaron Washington, NEI South
Washington is a player that came out of nowhere. He spent Saturday locking down receivers and frustrating quarterbacks. Washington had two interceptions in one game and three total for the day. Washington is on the smaller side, but left little doubt about his coverage ability.

WR, Erik Brown, Ground Zero
Brown was on our 'sleeper to watch' list prior to the tournament but should be a sleeper no longer after a scoring touchdown after touchdown. Brown has a great frame, looks about 6-2 and wiry strong, has great body control and was jumping over defensive backs all day. He runs well and the game just looks easy and effortless for him. He's definitely one of the top receivers in the state.

RB/CB Chico McClatcher, NEI North
McClatcher is an absolute freak of an athlete at just over 5'7". McClatcher is usually a running back, but played slot receiver and corner today. He was one of the best cover corners on the day and didn't give opponents anything. At receiver he hauled in deep passes over opponents with much greater size. Easy to see why he has the early offers he does.

QB Manny Wilkins, DB Guru
Wilkins has one of the strongest arms in the region and showed it off today. We've said it before but all he needs is more reps and game action to polish his skills. In term of upside, you look at his size, arm, athleticism, accuracy and ability to change speeds, his upside is as high as any quarterback out west. All he needs is more consistency to become a very special player.
