The Top 5 Most Athletic OL Recruits in Class of 2014

One of the things that I quickly learned about scouting is that when you work for a team, you have to bring in players who fit the coaching staff's schemes. That is in regarding to every position, as a press corner is not going to fit well in a zone coverage-oriented defense. An average-arm quarterback who doesn't like to take risks is not going to be a fit in a vertical passing game offense.

Finding players who fit what coaches want to do scheme-wise at each position is vital and it does include the offensive linemen. Some recruits on the offensive front are maulers who want to get nasty, use their power and put a hat on men immediately. They aren't the best at pulling and hitting targets in space, as they lack athleticism.

Other OL prospects love getting on the move, working in space and getting onto the second level. Having athleticism as an OL prospect is always a huge plus, and for this read, we're going to look at the top five most athletic OL recruits in the 2014 class right now.
