Scout.com takes a look at the Next Level Athlete selections from the Video Showcase event who was the best on the offensive side of the ball.

WR Akilian Butler (5'10/179)
West Mesquite

Butler took home MVP honors as the best receiver and earned it. he flashed quick moves and good route running to get open consistently. He was the most fun guy to watch as well. Has an offer from Clemson.

RB Jordan Stevenson (5'10/185)
Dallas SOC

The running back MVP is certainly an electric player. He has very good feet and just seems to be moving much faster than the competition. he is also well put together. A good package at the running back position. He has committed to Texas.

RB Michael Nelson (6'0/204)
Naaman Forest

Nelson has a good range of skills at the position. He moves really well, but has a great frame at over 300 pounds. He is a prospect more schools will offer once they see his range of skills and size this spring.

OT Madison Akamnonu (6'6/268)
Arlington Bowie

Creighton Barr won the most one-on-ones and more than deserved the OL MVP award, but if I have to pick a guy to offer it would have likely been this one. He looks like a full grown man already. Struggled at times with outside speed rushing types, but with his frame, strength and length he will be a prospect who colleges look into very seriously. Earned second team all-district honors in 2013. New dedication to football should see his stock take off.

RB Taylor Martin (5'9/176)
FW Dunbar

The RB grouping was the most stacked one and Martin was edged by Stevenson for the running back MVP. The Class of 2015 looks to feature a number of nice looking prospects at the RB position after a perceived down year in 2014. Martin is an intriguing one.

Others to mention:
RB Nick Ralston, OL Creighton Barr, RB Jatory Sparks-Brown, WR Xavier Castille, RB Taylor Martin, WR Dee Anderson, RB Aca'cedric Ware
