The best from Texas
Picking an All-Texas team wasn't easy, but here is our starting lineup
Picking the best players from Texas since we started doing evaluations in 2006 through the Class of 2013 was no easy task. We looked at a combination of factors, including how they were ranked coming out of high school, as well as how they developed while at college. We did not necessarily factor in their pro potential or how they fared in the NFL.
We tried to keep it to a starting team on each side of the ball, but we did add an extra receiver (since many teams use three-wide receiver sets) as well as one athlete -- a player who was either listed as an athlete coming out of high school or whose role wasn't limited to just the traditional use of the position he was listed at -- on the team.
Here is our Texas team. As always, let the second-guessing begin ...

Class of 2008 | College: Baylor | High School: Copperas Cove
This was tough, and we considered Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck and Case Keenum, but RG III's dynamic playmaking ability and Heisman clinched it.
