The Nike Football Training Camp stopped at Centreville High on Saturday, and it brought out some tremendous competition on the line of scrimmage.
Scout.com takes a look at the top performers at the event:
1. Matthew Burrell, OT, 6-5, 285, Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton
Skinny: Burrell was violent and forceful. He left his junior season needing to show he added a nasty streak to his game, and it came through in this event. His initial punch was incredible as he stopped defensive linemen in their tracks. Burrell played guard, so he didn't have to worry about rushers lining up wide and getting around the edge, but he sat in his base well, his balance was very good and he moved well laterally.
2. Richie Petitbon, OG, 6-4, 301, Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga
Skinny: Petitbon, an Alabama commit, was nearly just as good as Burrell, and he showed a good initial punch, superb strength and an ability to recover after a misstep early on a rep. Petitbon is thick and used did a good job of staying in his stance and remaining patient and not reaching. When the defensive player got inside of Petitbon, he was able to use his strength finish the rep. He also bent well which allowed him to win the leverage battles.
3. David Robbins, OG, 6-4, 285, Glenelg (Md.) High
Skinny: Robbins, a Florida State commit, will play interior offensive line in college but lined up at right tackle in the combine. Early on, Robbins struggled with speed around the edge, but as he got used to the competition, he began to flourish and was able to cover the outside. He moved his feet well, and was able to use his strength to keep players from getting around him. Robbins also did a good job of getting his hands inside the defensive linemen to slow them down.
4. Quarvez Boulware, OG, 6-3, 275, Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate
Skinny: Boulware is powerful and keeps a low center of gravity, and that was on display during the 1-on-1 reps. He was able to slide when defensive linemen tried to go around him, and he used his strength and quick hands when they tried a rip move. Boulware also demonstrated good balance.
5. Patrick Allen, OT, 6-5, 290, Reisterstown (Md.) Franklin
Skinny: Allen used his length well and also showed a good kick step. Defensive ends were not able to get around him as he used a combination of his size and speed to prevent them from getting to the quarterback. When they tried to drive inside, Allen did reach a little bit and was caught off balance, but he was still able to use his length to push the defensive player off his line and win the rep.
