4-5Detron LewisWR174SrReliable pass catcher very effective running after the reception. Plays with balance, body control and a consistent hand catcher who makes the reception away from his frame. Potential 3rd/4th receiver.
5-6Colby WhitlockDT934SrHard working interior player with tremendous quickness and explosion. Lacks the great upside but makes a lot of plays on hustle and smarts.
5-6Taylor PottsQB125SrOne of the better quarterback prospects to come from the Texas Tech program in a long, long time. Has a lot of pizzazz in his game, competently leads the offense and shows both accuracy and speed throwing the ball.
5-6Brian DuncanILB575SrStout run defender who stops ball carriers dead in their tracks. Stays with assignments, effectively uses his hands to keep blockers away and wraps up at the point. More of a two down defender.
5-6Baron BatchRB255SrSmallish, elusive ball carrier also effective catching the ball out of the backfield.
