10 NFL prospected who played high school football in Texas
Myles Garrett, Martin (Arlington), Class of 2014, DE
There's a lot of chatter that Garrett could go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns. While in high school, he was a three-sport star and the consensus No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2014. As a senior at Martin, Garrett amassed 19.5 sacks and signed to play at Texas A&M.Solomon Thomas, Coppell, 2014, DE
Thomas is giving Garrett a run for his money for the top pick in the draft. He was highly recruited out of Coppell and played at Stanford. As a senior at Coppell, Thomas had 78 tackles and 12.5 sacks.Jamal Adams, Hebron (Carrollton), 2014, SS
Adams was ranked as the No. 10 prospect coming out of Texas in 2014 by 247Sports.com. But after three big seasons at LSU, Adams' draft stock has surged and now he has a good shot at going in the top five in the draft as the top-rated safety. In his final two seasons at Hebron, he amassed 138 tackles and seven interceptions.Tyus Bowser, Tyler, 2013, OLB
Bowser was a beast at Tyler. In his senior year, he tallied 24 sacks and 59 tackles. Despite his numbers, he wasn't very highly recruited and ended up at Houston. Under then-coach Tom Herman, Bowser thrived with the Cougars. Now, he could be a first- or second-round draft pick.Patrick Mahomes II, Whitehouse, 2014, QB
Mahomes, the son of a former MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes, put up 4,619 yards passing and 50 touchdowns as a senior at Whitehouse. Rated as the No. 82 player coming out of Texas in his class by 247Sports.com, Mahomes signed with Texas Tech. He has one of the strongest arms in this year's draft.Dede Westbrook, Cameron Yoe, 2012, WR
Westbrook was just a three-star recruit coming out of Cameron Yoe in 2012. He spent three years at Blinn College before transferring to Oklahoma. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2016. Vincent Taylor, Madison (San Antonio), 2013, DT
Taylor racked up 79 tackles, 12 for loss, and two sacks as a senior at Madison. He went to Oklahoma State, where he played for three seasons as an interior lineman.Samaje Perine, Hendrickson (Pflugerville), 2014, RB
Perine had 3,485 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns in his final two seasons in high school. He was a four-star recruit and a top-10 player in the Class of 2014. He rushed for a school-record 4,122 yards in three seasons at Oklahoma.Kyle Fuller, Wylie, 2012, C
A three-star recruit out of Wylie, Fuller was ranked No. 94 in Texas in the Class of 2012. At Baylor, he was a three-year starter, playing in 52 total games. Zane Gonzalez, Deer Park, 2013, K
Regarded as the No. 1 kicker in the draft, Gonzalez was a big-time player coming out of Deer Park. In his final two high school seasons, he was 26-for-28 on field goals and didn't miss an extra point.
