LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst Herman Edwards is coaching Team Highlight at this week's Under Armour All-America Game.
Edwards says Robert Nkemdiche "almost" already has an NFL body.
Who has impressed him in practice?
Edwards chatted with 247Sports on Thursday morning to share his thoughts about a handful of prospects.
On No. 1 prospect Robert Nkemdiche, defensive end from Loganville (Ga.) Grayson -- "Besides his athleticism and his power you like his attitude. He asks good questions. He's been asking questions every day. So you like kids like that. It's almost [an NFL body right now]. He has a body similar to [NFL defensive lineman] Julius Peppers. He's probably a three-year guy. If you get him for three years, he'll probably be gone after that."
On four-star offensive tackle Hunter Bivin of Owensboro (Ky.) Apollo, a Notre Dame commit -- "He's a good player. He's actually our best offensive lineman. We've talked about having him playing tackle (Bivin is at center this week)."
On three-star linebacker Ben Boulware of Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna, a Clemson commit -- "I like him, man. He's got some chippiness to him. He's a typical guy that is an overachiever and you want guys like that on your football team."
On three-star quarterback Zach Greenlee of Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln, a Fresno State commit -- "He's got a little something to him. As the week went on, you could kind of see, okay, here's a guy. And the guys kind of like him. He's got a good personality."
On five-star quarterback Christian Hackenberg of Fork Union Military (Va.), a Penn State commit -- -- "The big kid going to Penn State …. he's got an arm on him now. To me, he looks like a Penn State guy. Playing in that weather. He's a big guy, and he's going to get bigger."
On five-star cornerback Vernon Hargreaves of Tampa (Fla.) Wharton, a Florida commit -- "He fits that mold. I think he'll play well for [Florida in college]. He's a competitive guy, and he's fearless. He'll tackle. He plays with good eyes, too. You have to make sure if you play that position, you've got guys with good eyes"
On five-star running back Kelvin Taylor of Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Day, a Florida commit -- "He's pretty good now. I'm gonna tell him, 'Your'e a little quicker than your daddy [former NFL standout back Fred Taylor].' His daddy was a good player. He has great instincts and nice body lean. He's got enough "it" to get it to the next level. And he's a good kid."
