Semper Fi Bowl: Top Five Offense (West Team)

The staff breaks down the top five offensive performers from Tuesday's workout. The top spot goes to a surprise offensive lineman from the Lone Star State.

1. Rami Hammad, OL, Irving (Texas.) - Baylor

Hammad moved from guard to tackle on Monday to provide some depth for the West after the team lost one player to injury. Hammad has not jut filled in, he has been the best tackle on the team by a wide margin and was the most impressive offensive player, regardless of position, on Tuesday. He's a big, physical player with very good feet and toughness.

2. Dane Crane, OL, Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita - Washington

Crane is a very talented player who has a chance to play and even start as a true freshman next fall. He had some great one on one reps with fellow Husky commitment Elijah Qualls and was the only player on the OL capable of coming close to slowing him down. Crane has it all, big, physical frame, light on his feet and plays with great technique.

3. Darren Carrington, WR, San Diego (Calif.) Horizon- Oregon

Carrington had a few drops on Tuesday but was still the best receiver for the West squad. The drops were due to lack of concentration, when sometimes happens for him, but when he's focused, Carrington is one of the most natural pass catchers you'll see and his body control is like an elite basketball player.

4. John Mundt, TE, Modesto (Calif.) Central Catholic- Oregon

Mundt wasn't even on the original roster on Monday. We talked to a few players asking who impressed them and Mundt's name came up. Sure enough, it was Mundt who looked great Tuesday catching the ball very well and using his speed and athleticism to make plays down the field.

5. Xavier Shepherd, WR, Lakewood (Calif.)- Utah

Shepherd looked good early on Monday before having to sit out the last half of practice with a leg injury. He bounced back well on Tuesday and was a very difficult cover for all the corners. The receiver has both explosive quickness off the ball and very good top end speed as well. He can run by any defensive back and has excellent hands and body control.
