Texas vs. the Nation: Offensive news and notes

Overall Quarterbacks: This group of six quarterbacks is better then group at the East-West Shrine game and is close to the Senior Bowl

QB Jonathan Crompton, Tennessee: He has shown a live arm and the ability to make all the NFL throws, he has had a nice week of pratice so far, and has impressed the scouts.

QB Tim Hiller, Western Michigan: Hiller had a rough first few practices but has scouts still believing that he could be the first quarterback draft out of this group.

QB Ryan Perrilloux, Jacksonville State: Perrilloux has had excellent practices and has shown his ability to throw the football and make plays with his feet. The coaching staff has been impressed with his ability.

RB Curtis Steele, Memphis: Steele has shown speed and elusivness to make plays in the open field and has done a good job catching the football.

RB Alfonso Smith, Kentucky: Smith has shown the ability run downfield and be a physical and shown some speed and quickness.

RB Trindon Holliday, LSU: Holliday has dropped some passes he should have caught in the first few days but we he gets his hands on the ball he is an explosive.

WR Jeff Moturi, UTEP: Moturi in the first day of practice was one of the best receivers on the Texas side and then slide back to the pack. But he is someone that wasn’t expected much out of.

WR Scott Long, Louisville: Long has shown the ability to run good routes and catch the football with his hands.

WR Juamorris Stewart, Southern: Stewart showed good hands snatching the ball out of the air and having the ability to get off press coverage.

WR David Nelson, Florida: Nelson has done a nice job even with being a late add to the game. He has caught the ball well and has nice size.

TE Clay Harbor, Missouri State: Harbor has been the best tight end by far this week with good hands and being able to block, he has run the ball from the full back spot and few times and done a good job in that area.

OT Jared Veldheer, Hillsdale (MI): Even being a Division 2 player, Veldheer might be the best offensive line on either team. He is big, strong, and has good feet.

OT J’Marcus Webb, West Texas A&M: Webb is a big athletic player with long arms and good feet and could possible be a very good left tackle in the NFL.

C Eddie Adamski, Northern Illinois: Adamski has been one of the better interior linemen down in El Paso, he is strong and won’t be bull rushed and uses his hands well.


  1. I hear Webb is a better OT than Veldheer. Is Veldheer a Left Tackle?

  2. What about the 323 pound Tyler Eastman OT. He is being seriously looked at by the Ravens. He seems to be the one to watch out for.

  3. Never heard of him.

  4. Webb is good player, but when it is all said and done Veldheer will be drafted higher
