Here I take a look at four players that haven’t gotten the attention they deserve. Players that have the traits to exceed their current ranking, and excel past a level that most may expect from them. Physical traits are a big part of it, but so is the natural knack to be a playmaker on the field.

Davonte Miles Davonte Miles 6'5" | DL River Rouge | 2022 State MI , 6’5, 256, River Rouge

Miles comes from a program at River Rouge that has put out some good players from their defensive line in years past, and he follows along in the lineage. He’s got imposing size as an inside lineman, and does a great job of finding the ball and making plays in the backfield. He causes absolute havoc on the field, and when he’s around the ball he makes the play, more times than not. What stands out most is his ability to consistently give extra efforts and get the job done, which is what football is all about.

Cameron Dyson Cameron Dyson 6'3" | LB Belleville | 2022 State MI , 6’3, 215, Belleville

Dyson is a unique player, and with his size he has the ability to fill multiple needs on the defensive side of the ball at either linebacker or safety. Versatility is one of the most sought after traits these days, making him a prize possession for his team. He glides very well and is a natural athlete, giving him a lot of opportunity to continue to grow as a player and become something special.

Myles Walton Myles Walton 5'11" | DB Muskegon | 2022 State MI , 5’11, 180, Muskegon

Walton isn’t the biggest player in the world, but he does have very good speed and quickness. He’ll continue to improve his game during his senior season, but already has a knack for playing corner. He shows on film that he’s willing to do the dirty work, make high level tackles, and drop back in coverage consistently. As a junior he made multiple interceptions, and unlike some players, Walton made picking the ball off look easy.

Kyle Johnson Kyle Johnson 6'1" | DB West Bloomfield | 2022 State MI , 6’1, 185, West Bloomfield

Johnson has good size as a defensive back, but that doesn’t matter without the ability. The good thing for him is that’s not a problem, as he has a good feel for the game, reading offenses very well and consistently finding himself in the right place at the right time. He’s a physical player, and his coaches use him in different ways to rush the passer, drop in coverage and stalk the ball, allowing him to truly show off his versatility.
