With 400 top prospects on the field at the Nike Football Training Camp at one time it is extremely hard to pick standouts at every position, especially when skills sets are so evenly matched. After sifting through all the tapes and dissecting the performances Scout.com picks its All-NFTC team from the camp's stop in the DFW area.

Quarterback

Tyrone Swoopes – Whitewright (Texas)
Got more comfortable with every rep. He has a quick release and the ball just jumps out of his hand.

Running Back

Dontre Wilson – DeSoto (Texas)
Definitely the player at the position with the quickest foot speed. He runs like a receiver.

Altee Tenpenny – North Little Rock (Ark.)
Now that he is healthy he could lay claim to the number one overall spot in the Arkansas State rankings.

Wide Receiver

Ra'Shaad Samples – Dallas Skyline (Texas)
Went down with an ankle injury late, but was the quickest and most explosive player at the position.

Jacorey Warrick – Cy Falls (Texas)
Runs terrific, crisp routes, making him really hard to cover one-on-one. Explosive in an out of cuts.

Hakeem Deggs – Plaquemine Sr. (Texas)
After Samples went down he stepped up to grab the one-on-one spotlight. Can get open and high point the ball.

Corey Robinson – SA Christian (Texas)
Not as heralded as some of the other big receivers, but was super smooth and beat some of the camps best DBs.

Quincy Adeboyejo/Laquvionte Gonzalez – Cedar Hill (Texas)
Tie between the two stars from the Hill. Adeboyejo has size and great natural ability. Quiv is slick with elite top end speed.

Tight End

Christian Morgan – Prestonwood Christian Academy (Texas)
Morgan moves extremely well. He has quick feet for a bigger player. Could end up growing in to an offensive lineman.

Offensive Line

Brad North – Allen (Texas)
Had a coming out party. Strong and has a good punch. Could be a hot name this spring.

George Roberts – SA Madison (Texas)
Another player who is laying low on the radar. Has a great frame for playing tackle in college and can run well.

Maurice Porter – FB Marshall (Texas)
Versatile lineman. Has the size to play guard, but moves well enough to play tackle.

Jake Raulerson – Celina (Texas)
Did not participate in all of the drills, but when the competition started he looked as good as ever.

Sergio Phillips – Desoto (Texas)
Consistency was the name of his game and that was how he performed from the word go.

Defensive Line

Daeshon Hall – Lancaster (Texas)
Big, with long arms. He got off the ball really quickly, embarrassing offensive tackles at times.

Vincent Taylor – SA Madison (Texas)
Showed that he has the power and size to be a force on the interior on the major BCS level.

Christian Lacouture – A&M Consolidated (Texas)
A real technician. Has the moves of a defensive end, but could grow in to a tackle. He has all the moves.

Torrodney Prevot – Alief Taylor (Texas)
Took home Nike MVP honors for the spot. Is rangy and long and almost unblockable when using his speed rush.

Hardreck Walker – Spring Westfield (Texas)
Plays with great balance and stays low. He moves quickly for a tackle. He dominated interior linemen.

Scott Pagano – Moanalua (Hawaii)
Put together like a linebacker and could hold even more weight. Combo of skills made him hard to block in one-on-ones.

Linebacker

Mike Mitchell – Prestonwood Christian Academy (Texas)
Showed great lateral movement and the ability to cover space. Looks like a prototype MLB. Also named the Nike MVP.

Deon Hollins – FB Marshall (Texas)
Hollins is very athletic and can run step for step with some of the best running backs. Pass rushing skills set him apart.

Defensive Backs

Maurice Smith – FB Dulles (Texas)
Got plenty of reps fresh from a track meet. He held his own over and over again and matched up with the camps best.

Anthony Canady – Mesquite (Texas)
Deservedly won the Nike MVP honors at the position, as he was lock down all day long. Turn and run ability.

Will Barrows – Dallas Skyline (Texas)
Not the biggest prospect on the field, but is very physical and not afraid to take a chance to make a big play.

Ranthony Texada – Frisco Centennial (Texas)
Will remind people of DeVante Harris from last year's class. Undersized, but has superior skills at the position.

Tony Brown – Beaumont Ozen (Texas)
Impressive 2014 specimen. Highly aggressive off the line and coaches have to like his fight until the end for the ball.
