Atlanta NFTC: Top LB Performers

Adonis Thomas

There were some good athletes playing linebacker Sunday at the Atlanta NFTC and here are the ones who stood out to Scout the most that day...

Philip Davis, 2015 OLB, Powder Springs (Ga.) Hillgrove
Davis showed good athleticism Sunday. He moved well through the drills, he showed the ability to run in space, and he has good length. He is not a name many talked about leading up to Sunday, but he is one to watch in 2015.

Tre Lamar, 2016 OLB, Roswell (Ga.)
Clemson recently offered this sophomore and he showed why Sunday. He has great size (6-foot-3, 230 pounds) and he is still growing. He closes well and he is physical. He could end up being recruited as a hybrid or defensive wne with two more years of high school to go.

Quarte Sapp, 2015 OLB, Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton
Sapp is long and lean and he impressed Sunday. He was fluid in coverage, he stayed with running backs down the field, and he can likely cover some receivers. His speed stood out as much as anything and his ability to stay on hips in coverage.

Roquan Smith, 2015 ILB, Montezuma (Ga.) Macon County
Smith lined up at inside linebacker, but moved in space like an outside linebacker. He ran well, he was strong in coverage, and he was impressive when working the blitz in drills.

Adonis Thomas, 2015 OLB, Lawrenceville (Ga.) Central Gwinnett
Thomas always passes the eye test and he passed other tests at the NFTC. He was very good in space, he looked comfortable, and his leadership stood out to Scout as well. He got his hands on a few passes, he showed he could sit down in his zone or run with the opponent.

Darrell Williams, 2015 OLB, Hoover (Ala.)
Williams loves to compete and when he gets the chance, he does so. He was playing hard Sunday and while he blitzes a lot on his high school team, he got to work on coverage and moving in space Sunday. He is a big body, but he was good through the agility drills and he showed good recognition. He used his length to help him and he showed why he is a Scout 300 prospect.
