1. LB Jaylon Smith
1st ranked outside linebacker, five stars

Rare athlete with excellent change of direction, speed and fluidity. Excels in space and can cover like a defensive back, but also does a great job as a speed rusher off the edge. Still has to get stronger and do a better job of taking on and shedding blocks. However, his combination of length and athleticism makes him a top end prospect and one that can play multiple roles within a defense.

2. DT Eddie Vanderdoes
2nd ranked defensive tackle, five stars

Vanderdoes has great get-off and quickness and does a really good job of shedding his blockers and getting a push into the backfield. Vanderdoes is stellar against the run while also being good at pressuring the passer. As a pass rusher he works the shoulder and sink in a rip and work his way to the quarterback and does a good job at using his hands and his moves.

3. S Max Redfield
5th ranked safety, five stars

Vanderdoes has great get-off and quickness and does a really good job of shedding his blockers and getting a push into the backfield. Vanderdoes is stellar against the run while also being good at pressuring the passer. As a pass rusher he works the shoulder and sink in a rip and work his way to the quarterback and does a good job at using his hands and his moves.

4. OT Mike McGlinchey
8th ranked offensive tackle, four stars

Surprisingly quick off the ball considering his massive frame standing near 6'9. McGlinchey plays with good leverage and shows a good change of direction to pick up defenders on the second level who try to sidestep him. At times a player can be too tall, but McGlinchey does a great job of getting low in his blocks and driving defenders because of his plus flexibility and quick feet. Will continue to improve as his frame fills out.

5. OG John Monetlus
2nd ranked guard, four stars

The first thing that stands out when looking at Montelus on film is the spring in his step. As a blocker the big-body Montelus has no problem mixing it up in the trenches and shows the ability to reach second level defenders. Montelus at times plays with a top lean that causes him to reach to engage in blocks and will need to improve his hand pop. has the ability to move laterally and the physical size to maintain contact and finish.
