Byron Cowart

Seffner, Florida/Armwood
ESPN 300: 1
Previous rank: 3

Analysis: Cowart was a man among boys at times during the Under Armour All-America week and that advanced skillset, mature physicality and competitive edge he flashed will allow for immediate contributions as a true freshman. Not only was he a force rushing the passer, relying on excellent strength and explosion off the corner, Cowart was also a disruptive presence versus the run and could challenge for an every-down role next fall.
