A look at the top five offensive performers from the first day at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl...
With Day One in the books at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Scout.com takes
a look at the five prospects, from the East and the West, who stood out on the
offensive side of the ball in San Antonio.
The East squad has it's share of playmakers, but none better than Diggs. Diggs at times almost seemed to be toying with defenders in the open field. If he gets the ball in his hands he is a threat to score from anywhere
Humphries was impressive. His footwork is outstanding and he delivers and punch and keeps them coming. He just keeps reloading and keeps his feet going. He was not beaten one time today in any part of the practice. One knock on him is his size;
he is listed at (260), so he may need a red shirt to allow his frame to fill
Carroo has improved by leaps and bounds this season, we knew he was good, but today he really looked elite. He is a blazer and one of the best downfield threats in the nation.
He's the best receiver in the country, and he showed it on Day One why he's
worthy of the praise. Green-Beckham has excellent hands, runs greats
routes and has very good speed, but it's the other things he's does- his ability
to adjust to any throw, overthrown, underthrown, poorly thrown, you name it, he
can get to it. And his body control is unrivaled. He's the perfect
package of size, speed, hands, route-running and balance.
All three of the running backs for the West were pretty strong, and showed
moments each that could have landed them on this list, whether it was Yeldon,
Trey Williams or Byron Marshall. But on Day One, we went with Yeldon
because the offense did seem to move better when he was catching passes out of
the backfield. He's got great shiftiness, ability to stop-and-go and good
hands out of the backfield and also didn't hesitate to run between the tackles
and take on defenders.|
