"Freakish" Athletes for next year

http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap2000000354297/14-for-14-most-freakish-athletes-in-college-football?campaign=Twitter_writers_huguenin

I listed the guys eligible for next years draft from the site, along with what makes them "freakish"

14. Jamil Douglas, OG, ASU - 300 pounder, weight lifting stud, sub 5.0 40

12. Jereme Jones, WR, South Alabama - small WR with incredible strength

11. Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa - the usual freakish weight lifts, sub 5.0 40. But also played QB in highschool and lettered in multiple sports

10. Mario Edwards Jr.*, DE, FSU - 300-pounder lineman that runs a 4.76 40 and can do blackflips

9. Venric Mark, RB, Northwestern - Small RB that can run sub 4.4

8. Todd Gurley*, RB, Georgia - a 230-pound RB that can a 4.45, and one of the best hurdlers in the country. If you ever seen him play, this guy has insane talent

7. Maurice Falls, OLB, East Carolina - 4.47 40 with some great strength

6. Benardick McKinney*, OLB, Miss St - article says he might be the best SEC defensive player. I haven't seen him play but definitely on my radar now

5. Alvin Dupree, DE/OLB, Kentucky - clocked at running 20.5 MPH in-game

4. Cameron Lynch, LB, Syracuse - Great numbers, but not sure why he is #4

3. Nick Marshall, QB, Auburn - A QB that can a 4.4 40. He could explode for a monster year

2. Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor - Only a 4.62 40, but unlike Marshall, he is a much better passer

1. DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville - 6-3 WR that can run a 4.4 40. Will be interesting how he does without Bridgewater.

On Jamil Douglas, I'd put him as a 2nd-4th round prospect, he is legit. Has stood out to me as an excellent lineman since he was a Sophmore. One of those lineman that came to college as way too skinny to play the line (6-4 and 250lbs), then he put on good weight and managed to keep his athleticism.

I'm skeptical of both the 300 pounder moniker and the 4.76 40 time. I'll believe it when I see it. He doesn't exactly seem like a speed demon to me.

Todd Gurly is one of the scariest human beings I've ever seen, and he has the wimpiest name.

Yeah I'm a huge fan of Gurley, best RB prospect since Adrian Peterson IMO.

Last time I was this high on a Georgia prospect was when I said AJ Green was the best WR prospect since Calvin Johnson

This freshman RB at Georgia Nick Chubb looks like a freak of nature, not gonna play much this year with Gurley #1 but man that kid looks beastly...........Future freak

Good find SunDevil. And good notes.
Gurley looks more like 4.5s
Mark my words,
Mario Edwards Jr. is the next JJ Watt

Gurley is Bo Jackson 2.0
So Bryce Petty and Nick Marshall make this list...

But no Marcus Mariota?
I was looking up DeVante Parker before the draft and if I`m not mistaken he runs a slow 4.57 according to CBSSports.
Dorial Green-Beckham?

Took the words out of my mouth, he also looks like he has room to grow.
