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 defensive line performers at the event:
1. Shane Simmons, DE, 6-3, 220, Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha
Skinny: Simmons, a class of 2016 prospect, was electric and explosive. His ability to rush off the edge was impressive as he consistently got around left tackles, and was able to mix it up by feigning outside and then exploding inside. Simmons also used his strength and his get-off was very impressive. He also used a few rip moves and dipped his shoulder to get by on the edge as well.
2. Adam McLean, DT, 6-2, 285, Gaithersburg (Md.) Quince Orchard
Skinny: McLean, a Penn State commit, was powerful and explosive, and when his strength was mixed in, he was hard to handle. Even when offensive linemen were able to get their hands on him, McLean was able to disengage and get up the field in a hurry. He was quick with his hands and his movements had purpose.
3. Tim Settle, DT, 6-3, 310, Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson
Skinny: Settle, a five-star prospect, came in with a mark on him and for good reason. Everyone wanted to make their mark, and it showed. By the end of it, Settle's jersey was torn from being grabbed in drills. The NFTC coaches frown on bull rushes since they teach technique, so a big part of Settle's game was not used. However, Settle was still quick and explosive and his body never stopped moving. He didn't give the offensive linemen a big target for their initial punch.
4. Rahshaun Smith, DE, 6-4, 235, Baltimore St. Frances Academy
Skinny: Smith, a class of 2016 prospect, spent last season playing outside linebacker, and moved back to defensive end for the event and showed why so many schools offered him even before his sophomore season. Smith is athletic, long, covers ground quickly and is explosive. He moved fast, and was difficult to block because of his quick hands and strength.
5. Trevon Hill, DE, 6-3, 220, Virginia Beach (Va.) Salem
Skinny: Hill didn't look the part of the other top performers when it came to strength and muscle, but it didn't keep him from dominating left tackles. Hill needs to add weight, but he was quick at the snap and gave left tackles fits with his speed and agility. He won reps with speed around the edge, and also by faking wide, cutting inside, and then gaining leverage by dipping his shoulder and getting under the block.
