Atlanta Pylon 7on Top Performers

Tyron Johnson

SUGAR HILL, Ga. - Six teams competed Saturday at the Pylon 7on and Scout names their top 10 performers here...

There was many talented athletes inside Gary Pirkle Park Saturday competing in the Pylon 7on and here are the 10 who stood out to Scout the most.

1. Tyron Johnson, 2015 WR, New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton
Johnson continues to shine in 2014. He is a physical wideout with good quickness off the ball. He made great adjustments on the ball and he overpowered defenders and ran past them Saturday. His strong hands were on display and he showed he could make plays in tight coverage and get open down the field.

2. Shea Patterson, 2016 QB, Shreveport (La.) Calvary Baptist
Patterson quietly moved to Louisiana from Texas last summer and he has quickly emerged as one of the top 2016 prospects in the Boot State. For never practicing with the Bootleggers, he was very sharp. He has good arm strength, but accuracy and a quick release stood out the most this weekend. The Arizona commit has many more offers and the ones that have not pulled the trigger likely will.

3. Kevin Toliver, 2015 CB, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian
Toliver was strong in man coverage and zone coverage Saturday. He would chase wide receivers across the middle on drag routes breaking up the pass due to his length and then sit back and read the receiver and play the ball. He is so physical and he covers so much ground with his size and length. The LSU commit showed why he is among the best in his class.

4. Terrell Chatman, 2015 WR, Baton Rouge (La.) Central
Not many talk a lot about Chatman, but he is a name to know. The 6-foot-3 wideout was leaping over defenders Saturday and making play after play. He is still raw in a lot of areas, but he is athletic, he has size, and he has upside. Schools will take a long look at him this spring and more offers will arrive.

5. Deshawn Raymond, 2015 CB, Metarie (La.) East Jefferson
When talking how you want to draw a corner up, just take a look at Raymond. He is a 6-1 plus corner with very long arms, he is around 185 pounds, and he is getting better in coverage. He has really progressed over the last 12 months and he is emerging as one of the top corners in the south. He was arguably the top press cover guy on the field Saturday.

6. Chauncey Gardner, 2016 LB, Cocoa (Fla.) Cocoa
This 2016 Miami commitment was all over the place Saturday. He could play linebacker and run around and move deep in coverage and cover a lot of ground. He is a natural athlete and he will likely settle in as a WILL linebacker on the next level. He played very aggressive and he was in on a lot of plays.

7. Clyde Leflore, 2016 WR, New Orleans (La.) Warren Easton
Most talk about [Tyron] Johnson when talking Warren Easton wide receivers and rightfully so, but there is another coming behind him. The talented junior has close to double-digit offers and it showed why Saturday. He is a long 6-1 wideout with great body control. The speed is good, not great, but he knows how to get open, and he catches everything within reach.

8. Mykel Jones, 2016 WR, Patterson (La.)
Jones has always been known for his speed and some may have viewed him as a slot receiver on the next level, but he is more than just an inside guy. He has added good weight/strength and he used that and his speed to make plays Saturday. The four-star sophomore blew past coverage most of the day.

9. Sekai Lindsay, 2015 RB/ATH, Melbourne (Fla.) Palm Bay
It is hard for running backs to shine in 7on events, so Lindsay was used a lot at wide receiver. He is a very quick and shifty athlete who can really catch the ball. He is strong too, he changed direction on a dime Saturday, and he was a real bright spot on Team 321. Lindsay was recently offered by Georgia Tech. He now has six offers.

10. Donte Jackson, 2015 ATH, Jefferson (La.) Riverdale
Jackson created a little buzz on the field Saturday due to his ability to play at a high level on both sides of the ball. He will end up playing corner on the next level and he is a kid in Louisiana college coaches need to check on over the next six weeks. He has that quick twitch and he really reacts well to the ball and receiver on defense. He has offers now, but bigger ones will come.
