SAN ANTONIO -- Friday was the annual Army National Combine, which featured several promising 2013 and 2014 prospects. Here are some highlights and observations from the action in the trenches at the event.

Defensive linemen

Some good big men were in attendance and one of the standouts was defensive tackle Greg Webb (Erial, N.J./Timber Creek). The ESPNU 150 Watch List prospect is slightly lacking in ideal height, but he possesses a solid reach for his build and skinny ankles for a big man. In one-on-ones he displayed a quick get-off and the ability to complement that initial quickness with some pass-rush moves, executing a rip move on one rep and a quick swim move on another. He easily worked past his opponents in the reps we saw.

Three players we saw at the Under Armour All-American combine were also present in San Antonio and, as they did in Orlando, they performed well Friday. Auburn verbal Dee Liner (Muscle Shoals, Ala.) -- who has a very appropriate name -- again showed a good burst out of his stance and was active with his hands in pass-rush drills. Compact but thickly-built defensive tackle Deadrin Senat (Immokalee, Fla.) proved he can be a handful as an interior rusher and we also like his competitive nature as the big man takes as many reps as he can. Lastly Jason Hatcher (Louisville, Ky./Trinity) showed the ability to attack with some different moves. On one rep, he worked past the blocker by taking a quick, hard charge upfield and throwing a nice club move when he got the tackle off balance and quickly countered back inside. On his next rep, he beat the tackle by quickly faking an inside move, then beating him to the outside.
