Oakland NFTC: Top Underclassmen

WR Collin Johnson

Here's our look at the top underclass performers at the Oakland NFTC...

QB Kevin Davidson, Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley
Davidson had a strong weekend and projects well to the next level. He's a big kid who can get the ball down the field with accuracy. He throws a tight ball and just needs to continue to work on his athleticism and mobility to take that next step in his development.

QB Connor Neville (2017), Wilsonville (Ore.)
The freshman threw as good a ball as anyone and was in the top three to five quarterbacks on Sunday easily. He's very strong mechanically and the ball flies out of his hand. He was accurate, made the right reads and assuming he can play in pads as good as he can in shorts and shirts, he's going to be a national prospect in three years.

RB Beau Bisharat, Carmichael (Calif.) Jesuit
Bisharat earned MVP honors and put his name on the map for the 2016 class. Bisharat is a big back, a very powerful runner and can get down the field. He excelled in the pass protection drills and showed very good hands coming out of the backfield as well. He also runs better than expected and tested well with a 4.74-40, and a 33" vertical jump.

WR Collin Johnson, San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian
The Texas commit plays in a run happy offense but showed he has all the skills to be a major player at the next level. At 6-4 with an athletic frame, Johnson is the big receiver colleges are coveting and he showed high level athleticism and ball skills as well. He can be physical getting off press coverage and showed very nice body control going up and over smaller defensive backs.

WR Darian Owens, Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West
Owens looks like one of the top players in the West Coast 2016 class. He measured in at a shade under 6-0, 180 pounds and is very well put together. He showed great quickness off the ball, exploded in and out of his breaks and looked like a natural pass catcher with a wide catch radius. He showed good top end speed and the ability to get deep and will definitely be a national recruit in two years.

LB Camilo Eifler, Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd
Eifler was coached at O'Dowd by former NFL standout Hardy Nickerson so it's not surprising he was very smart and knew what he was doing. He has a great frame, well muscled, is a very good athlete and competed hard all day long. He also had the top SPARQ Rating of the day on Saturday at the NIKE SPARQ Combine with a 113.16 score highlighted by a 39" vertical leap.

LB Caleb Kelly, Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West
In terms of upside, only DT Kahlil McKenzie showed more long term potential than Kelly. His athleticism is off the charts and he'll be on the short list of players when discussing the top overall recruiting the West Coast 2016 class. He moves around like a safety but has a big frame and could end up an ideal blitzing OLB in a 3-4 scheme. He covers very well and just needs to keep improving his knowledge of the game to really be special at the next level.

LB Cvaughn Stewart, Bullard (Calif.)
Stewart had a nice camp as was especially strong in the pass rush drills. He has a big frame, is a naturally strong kid and very physical. He moves around well in space and is a solid all around athlete. Utah has already offered and expect more schools to follow suit by the end of the spring.

DB Nigel Center, American Canyon (Calif.)
Center is a tall corner at 6-2 and almost 200 pounds and was very impressive in the one on one drills. He was physical and uses his length well but showed the feet to run with all receivers as well. Center, who's still only 15, looks like he's not done growing yet either and has a 6-6 older brother. He's definitely an intriguing kid with a very nice upside to him.

DB Shurod Thompson, Pittsburg (Calif.)
Thompson is a great looking underclassman that everyone should get on early. The 2016 safety does everything well and is a high level athlete, can play physical in run support and is a natural in coverage. He shows great instincts on the field, covers a ton of ground and projects very well in college.
