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

Jarrett Stidham (6'4, 190) - Stephenville (Texas) High
Played behind a division one signee in 2012 and will get his shot as the starting signal caller for the first time this fall. Has been the talk of the summer camp and combine season. He is big and strong and has the exact frame you envision. He has a good arm. He throws well working outside of the pocket. He is athletic and has the ability to run, which his time at receiver as a sophomore will back up. Could rank even higher after tape is out.

Kyler Murray (5'11, 170) - Allen (Texas) High
Typically, quarterbacks with his size are not rated as highly, but that speaks to the type of talent he possesses. Led his team to a 5A state title in Texas as a sophomore, showing a high acumen to read the field and make plays with his arm or his legs. He is a very accurate passer and can place the ball exactly where he wants it to go. He is very savvy as to when he decides to pull the ball down and run. A rue dual-threat at the position.

Drew Lock (6'4, 175) – Lee's Summit (MO.) High
Great all-around, top-level athlete who is getting offers to come in for football and basketball. He is talented and has good feet. He throws well on the run and is not afraid to step up in the pocket around the pressure and deliver the ball. Confident, has that special ability to make plays with his feet or with his arm. He makes dangerous passes at times, which he often completes, showing that he will take risks to force the big play.

Chason Virgil (6'0, 170) - Mesquite (Texas) West
A solid and consistent performer at the position, who has earned starts in his first two years of varsity play. Will be one of the most experienced at the position by the time he hits the college scene. He throws a catchable and accurate ball, spinning it well consistently. Does not have that huge top end cannon arm, but is an all-around play maker., Once you sleep on him he will slash the defense for big gains and scores.

Blake Lynch (6'3, 190) - Troup (Texas)
An athlete who is playing quarterback. He has special playmaking abilities. He is very quick and fast as a runner. Speed in the hole to get in to the open field and then the top-end to finish with a touchdown. He is not your typical thrower, but has a strong arm. Can get the ball down the field. He makes the wow plays on tape, making his highlights quite fun to watch. Could play a few different positions in college. Get him on the roster and figure it out later.
