|1||James Lockhart||Ennis||Texas||6'3/250||Texas A&M|
|Junior Eval: A strong defender, who shows a high acumen for tracking down ball carriers in the open field, which shows his athleticism and pursuit skills right away on film. He is really good against the run.|
|2||Breylin Mitchell||Round Rock||Texas||6'4/255||TCU|
|Junior Eval: He is not a true edge rusher at the position, but uses gap control and strong upper and lower body to keep his position and make plays. He is a solid tackler.|
|Junior Eval: Lanky defensive end who is a bit of a project from a frame stand point, but certainly has an extremely high ceiling. He has the height and length to develop into the elite category.|
|Junior Eval: On defense, he lines up on the edge as an OLB and moves really well in the open field, again for a player with his length. He shows a wide arrange of skills.|
|Junior Eval: He is strong up front, playing off of blocks and using his hands to redirect offensive linemen and get off of blocks. He seems to play a bit high at times, but he is tall, so added bulk will help.|
|6||Dare Odeyingbo||Cistercian Prep||Texas||6'2/240||Undecided|
|Junior Eval: Its hard to project exactly what position suits him best in college at this point -- RB, LB, DE and FB could all be in the mix. A hard-nosed player with tremendous size, frame and athletic ability.|
|Junior Eval: Neal is another defensive end who you can place in the upside category. He is very tall, has long arms and is still growing in to his frame. As he develops he could be quite special.|
|Best of the Rest: Blain Padgett, Brady Reiff, Tyrell Thompson, Tipa Galea'I, Joshua Little, Michael Scott|
