Here are 20 players our scouts are excited to watch at The Opening this week:

Offense

Ira Denson, OG (Madison, Fla./Madison)
Denson arrived at the Orlando NFTC with little fanfare, but by the time the event was over the offensive line prospect had created quite a buzz. The recent Florida State commit put forth a very strong performance during one-on-ones, arguably the best of any offensive lineman on the tour this year. A physically big and strong presence, Denson consistently proved to be a tough obstacle to try and navigate around with an aggressive nature, a quick and powerful punch and nimble feet to mirror. Denson's stock has risen since that event and many will be eager to see if the No. 7 overall guard prospect can offer up an encore performance. One thing is for sure: everyone will know who Ira Denson is at the start of the event this time.
