With the 5th Annual NMPreps.com Elite Combine just days away, our staff will be breaking down and previewing each position throughout the week leading up to our non-stop combine recap coverage. Have a question regarding the combine? E-mail us at email@example.com.
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN PREVIEW: During the NMPreps.com Elite Combine, we feature the defensive linemen vs. the offensive linemen in a one-on-one session, which is really the highlight of each year's event. Here is a look at the roster of defensive linemen that are attending the Combine on Saturday.
From Las Cruces our Pre-Season Number One Ranked Team in New Mexico we have Kamryn Dixon attending who we have ranked as the number one overall prospect in the State of New Mexico. At last year's event, Dixon was the Combine King giving linemen trouble in the trenches all afternoon. We also have 245 pound Taylor Tisby from Las Cruces attending who had over 13 sacks a junior. Oscar Guzman from Las Cruces is the team's punter and nose guard, hard not to like that combination.
From Goddard we have 215 pound David Chavers who had had a monster summer at every summer event we've seen him at. He is extremely quick off the line and should be very tough to defend for offensive tackles on the day. Another quick side defensive end is from Eldorado in Dazmond Ravenel. Ravenel is expected to be on of Eldorado's top chasing quarterback defenders in 2012.
Along with Ravenel from Eldorado we have 6-foot-1, 265 pound Austin French who will be a two-year starter and one prospect that we are very high on and 6-foot-7, Matthew Clark out of Eldorado who will just be a junior will be at the event. From Carlsbad we'll have Ethan Jon Holgouin who looked very impressive during our stop in Carlsbad earlier this summer and from Los Alamos you have Grant Washburn who ran the fastest shuttle time out of any prospect at the event last year with a time of 4.03.
From Volcano Vista we have three powerful defensive linemen attending. Mike Budick, Chris Carrica, and Isaiah Perry will all be at the event. Carrica and Perry are two of the top linemen we've seen this summer and we are excited to see where Budick fits in talent wise after the event.
From Sandia we have Tyler Ireland and Jeremiah Thompson. Each are going to be super productive for Sandia in 2012. Thompson is a Class of 2014 top prospect. Los Lunas is bring 5-foot-11 Preston Schollander and 6-foot-4 Greg Wortman. As a junior last year Wortman had over 12 sacks and is one that should shine during the one-on-one's.
Dyan Terry is coming down from Piedra Vista and District Rival Joey Dotson will be at the event also. Dotson is noted for catching David Anaya, Goddard's running back from behind last year in the State Title Game. From Rio Rancho we have Morgan Smith who looks like a beast in the weight room and Sergio Mendoza from the Class of 2014.
St. Pius X is bring Connor Brown and Noah Griego, 6-foot-4 Gunner Paulsen from Manzano will be at the event. Paulsen has a brother that played at the University of Oklahoma. Eric Strobert from La Cueva will be at the event along with Ryan Koeller and Nikolia Purdy, three new prospects we have liked over the summer time. From Santa Teresa we have both David Aldama and Joey Alvarado attending, excited to see what Santa Teresa has in the trenches.
Now for the big three, Dijon Ford who is 260 pounds out of Clovis will be a the event. Ford is a big time hoops player and also a very solid tight end for the Wildcat's. Mareon Gray at 6-foot-4 from Albuquerque will be at the event for a second year in a row and 6-foot-4, 265 pound DeVonte Weeks from Mayfield who we feel is a very underrated prospect will has signed up to prove his stock value.
