Oakland NFTC: All-Camp Team

There was a ton of talent on hand at the NIKE Football Camp in Oakland. Here's our look at the top 10 players from the camp on the offensive side and top 10 on the defensive side of the ball...

Our list is based on who we felt had the best day and is not based on college recruiting potential. This list is also just for players in the rising 2014 class as we'll have a separate list for underclassmen later in the week.

The Offensive Top 10

1. Michiah Quick, WR, Fresno (Calif.) Central- Quick didn't earn WR MVP honors but in our eyes, was the most dynamic offensive player in the camp. He looked explosive, exploded off the line, caught the ball very well and made several acrobatic coaches showing his great body control and jumping ability.

2. Dalton Schultz, TE, South Jordan (Utah) Bingham- Schultz is everything you want in a tight end. He measured in at 6-6, 230 pounds, clocked a very solid 4.79-40 (electric) and is already an advanced route runner. He's a very smart player and understands how to get open, how to use his frame and has a great pair of hands to complement the package.

3. Jalen Harvey, WR, El Cerrito (Calif.)- Harvey was probably the most consistent receiver of the day and brings a very nice skill set to the table. He has a strong body and was built to handle contact. His hand-eye coordination and ability to the adjust to the ball in the air are at the elite level and his toughness and competitiveness can never be questioned as well.

4. K.J. Carta-Samuels, QB, San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine- Carta-Samuels admitted to having a better day throwing at Friday's Elite 11 Regional Camp but he was bringing the heat on Sunday as well. The QB has elite arm strength and make every throw down the field. When he sets his feet and throws on time, he's very accurate and can throw with touch and few players can spin the football as well as Carta-Samuels.

5. Nick Gibson, RB, Corona (Calif.)- Gibson was probably the biggest surprise in the camp taking home a well deserved RB MVP honors. When you watch his film, he's no fluke as Gibson combines a nice burst, change of direction skill, toughness and the ability to run through contact and keep his balance. He showed great hands and routes in the one on one drills as well and had a very good all-around camp.

6. Joe Mixon, RB, Oakley (Calif.) Freedom- Mixon had a few drops during the one on one drills, which probably cost him MVP honors but regardless, he's an incredible talent. Mixon is a big time athlete who runs like a receiver but is strong and powerful. He has great balance, vision and can change direction without slowing down. Mixon is a tremendous competitor as well and as good as he is at running back, could be an ever better prospect at safety.

7. Kammy Delp, OL, Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch- Delp was the best lineman in the camp and was a surprising but deserving invite for The Opening following the camp. Delp is a powerful guard prospect with a nice frame and plays with a mean streak. He's very strong in his lower body and doesn't give up any ground once he locks on to a tackle. He shows good mobility for a 300 pounder and has a very solid upside to him.

8. Morgan Mahalak, QB, Kentfield (Calif.) Marin Catholic- Mahalak had a great weekend throwing the football and showing the early offer from Oregon was justified. He has size, a big arm and plays with a swagger. He's a confident quarterback, looks very polished and is strong mechanically despite limited reps thus far.

9. Justin Holmes, WR, Roseville (Calif.) Oakmont- Holmes had a very consistent day showing off his combination of size, strength and speed. He's a very aggressive player and is too strong to press at the line of scrimmage. He has improved his route running and showed a nice burst out of his breaks that we hadn't seen before this spring.

10. Kenyon Frison, OL West Valley (Utah) Granger- Frison measured in at a solid 6-5, 280 pounds and looks like a prototype left tackle. He's still raw in terms of technique and even his stance looks awkward at times but when you consider his frame, his mobility and his raw strength and power, his upside is off the charts.

The Offensive Top 10

DL Mori Savini, Sandy (Utah) Jordan
Savini is an undersized defensive tackle who did well at the SoCal NIKE Camp and showed even better in Oakland. He's very tough to block because he's so quick off the ball, is very strong and will always win the leverage battle. He showed multiple pass rush moves and didn't have to rely on trying to just bull rush an opposing guard like the majority of the tackles.

LB Joey Alfieri, Portland (Ore.) Jesuit
Linebackers coach Chris Gizzi said that Alfieri put on the best LB performance at any NFTC this year and earned a trip to The Opening, which is just a 10 minute drive from his high school.  Alfieri drew praise from Gizzi for his balance and technique and his ability to react.

LB D.J. Calhoun, El Cerrito (Calif.)
Calhoun showed explosive speed, ability to change direction and plays with a passion that few have, regardless of position.  He's extremely physical at the line of scrimmage, making it tough for the receiver to get off the line.

LB Michael Lazarus, Berkeley (Calif.)
Lazarus is an elite player with size, speed and toughness and his talent should dictate double digit offers.  Lazarus showed great explosiveness and aggressiveness.

LB Chandler Leniu, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
Leniu opened a lot of eyes showing off his athleticism on his sturdy 225 pound frame. Leniu tested well with a 30" vertical jump and he threw the power ball 44'. He looked great in the drills as well playing fast and aggressive and looking very comfortable in space.

DB John Plattenburg, Corona (Calif.) Centennial
Not only earned DB MVP honors but may have been the top performer at the camp regardless of position.  Still somewhat new to the position, having played running back and safety, Plattenburg earned rave reviews from the coaches, showing great instincts, athleticism and technique.

DB Adoree Jackson, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Jackson took reps at corner and receiver and wowed the coaches with his explosiveness as well as his ability to take coaching and quickly apply it on the field.  All this coming a day after he put up impressive marks at the CIF-SS track meet.

DB Brandon Simmons, Arlington (Texas) Mansfield Timberview
Simmons was the top safety in attendance and is smart, savvy and athletic and has very good play making ability. He competed very hard, has great football instincts and was the guy making sure the other DBs were lined up right during the half-skelly portion of the camp.

DB Adarius Pickett, El Cerrito (Calif.)
Pickett is a physically imposing player with good top end speed. He has a great frame and has the hip quickness to play corner but a few of the coaches feel he could be even better as a ball hawking free safety with his size and toughness. Pickett is a natural leader, was the first guy to jump in front in every drill and has a big upside to him.

DB Kwesi Mashack, Norco (Calif.)
Mashack has a good frame and is built like a tank. He's very physical and strong, especially in his upper body and is gifted athletically as well. He can run and jump and plays with good technique as well. Mashack is very competitive as well and will battle you all game.
