Agility is important to have at every position in football. Quarterbacks must be agile when dropping back and eluding rushers in the pocket, running backs must elude defenders with the ball and even linemen have to be agile when blocking in space.
When scouting and evaluating football players, if a prospect lacks agility then his final grade or assessment/evaluation will be affected. There are players who have been successful without being blessed with much agility, but those are rare exceptions.
Many agile recruits lurk in this 2014 class and some are under the radar. An athlete in Louisiana used a combine this spring to showcase his agility while a lineman in Florida uses his basketball athleticism to shadow blockers in space. A big cornerback in New Jersey made this list as well as two teammates in Florida and a sleeper prospect.
