Mother nature was the great equalizer though as the wet, muddy field negated a lot of the quickness for the defensive line and favored the bigger offensive linemen who were happy to grapple in place.
However several defensive linemen still made their mark on Saturday, and here is a look at the standouts.
Joshua Brown, 2016, Mallard Creek (NC)
A member of the class of 2016, Brown was an easy choice for the defensive line MVP. A quick edge rusher, Brown still did a good job navigating through the mud and beating offensive tackles inside and outside. He has a lean frame and a lot if room to add good weight the next two years before graduates.
Emmanuel Olenga, 2015, Olympic (NC)
An intense competitor, Olenga showed good quickness on the edge and a willingness to be physical against bigger offensive tackles. Looks like he gets by with power at the high school level and had to adjust his game against the better competition at the Nike Camp.
Jalen Cousar, 2015, Butler (NC)
A little undersized for the interior line, but compact quick and strong. Cousar did a good job of keeping the offensive linemen's hands off of him and had a deceptively quick swim and spin move to beat his man.
Defensive End, Will Ingle, 2015, Williams (NC)
A bigger defensive end with a good frame on him, Engle has a lot of room to grow and already has good quickness off the line. Could end up a 3-4 type of defensive end with his size and strength.
Rhett Huddleston, 2015, Ardrey Kell (SC)
Huddleston didn't have far to go for the camp as it was held at his school. Huddleston beat his men with a quick first step and a tenacious rush. Huddleston is a high energy player whose quickness in close quarters would overwhelm linemen.
