One step closer…
Eight former Houston-area high school football stars received the invite they have been waiting for since playing Little League football. An invitation to the NFL Combine.
More than 300 NFL prospects were invited to participate in the four-day event starting February 26th televised on the NFL Network and eight of those hail from the all-Greater Bayou City area.
Emmanuel Ogbah of Fort Bend Bush has been terrorizing the Big 12 since arriving at Oklahoma State. With the trend of explosive DEs like Denver’s Von Miller, watch Ogbah’s stock rise quickly. He could be a first-rounder.
Talk about coming out of nowhere. Wheatley’s William Jackson III was looking for a place to play college football four years ago and went Juco before starting at U of H. Now he’s a potential 2-3 round pick as a 6-foot-2 corner with great ball skills . See Josh Norman of Carolina.
Texas A&M has put out several offensive linemen over the past few seasons and this year’s edition is Germain Ifedi. The Houston Westside graduate is massive but will need to show out at the combine to get into the third-round. Stay tuned.
Seven Lakes’ Caleb Benenoch is another massive offensive lineman who declared early for the draft out of UCLA. Benenoch is a great run blocker and should fall in the 4-5 round.
Hightower’s Bralon Addison electrified Houston as the Hurricane’s QB, leading the program to a state final appearance. He lit up at Oregon with some dynamic plays at WR, but suffered a knee injury 2 years ago. He’s projected as early as the fifth-round.
The Woodlands’ Daniel Lasco was often banged up at Cal, but is a big RB with track speed. He will show well at the combine, but will his highlight tape get him drafted?
The opposite can be said for Fort Bend Marshall’s Deandre Washington. While a little undersized, Washington completely balled out at Texas Tech. He’s tremendously versatile out of the backfield and will likely be a great free-agent pick up.
Brookshire-Royal’s Brandon Williams has been through some change in his college career. He started at OU and ended up at Texas A&M. He was a RB and now he’s a DB. Tremendously athletic, Williams will be another free agent.
