The 2014 class has several elite prospects who are better athletes than pure players at this point, as they will need some sculpting in college.
A recruit can lack technique, but chances are that if he's a good athlete, college coaches will still offer him a scholarship based on their thinking he can be seasoned and developed under their tutelage.
A cornerback has world-class athletic ability, but needs to develop better cover technique. A quarterback has good size and arm strength, but needs to have a coach clean up his footwork. Also, an offensive tackle has great agility and balance, but limited experience.
