Take a look at the top three rated interior defensive linemen from the Midlands Region for the Class of 2015...

Complete Reports:
QB | RB | WR | OT | OG | DE | DT | LB | S | CB

Daylon Mack (6'1, 305) - Gladewater (Texas) High
Big and strong. He moves extremely well on his first step and can penetrate in to the backfield at times with cat-like quickness, which is quite an attribute for a player easily over 300 pounds. He runs well and is good in pursuit. He plays high at times, but is a difference maker when staying low. Makes the 'wow' play at times. He can get in the gap and blow plays up. Still extremely raw with a ton of upside for development. Strong tackler.

Duvonta Lampkin (6'3, 295) - Cypress (Texas) Falls
Big, raw powerful defensive tackle prospect. A great duo of height and overall size. Was one of the clear standouts at the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas earning All-Underclass honors and taking out all comers in one-on-one drills. He will need to get more explosive and more play more passionate snap-to-snap, but shows a good understanding how to take on blockers, squaring up on pulling guards and then taking good angles to the runner.

Marquise Overton (6'1, 301) - Jenks (Okla.) High
A fun to watch defensive tackle prospect. He is always quick off the ball and pushing the action. He plays with a good motor and fires in to the backfield past offensive linemen. He is a punishing tackler, using his size and strength to take RBs to the ground with force. He gives off some deceptiveness, because he does not look as tall as advertised, but checked in at 6'1, 301 at NFTC. That is a bonus then, because he plays low, with good pad level.
