Oakland Nike Regional - Offensive Standouts

Here's the offensive players that we saw who stood out during Oakland's Nike Regional, the final Nike regional event of the year, at De Anza High School in El Sobrante, California...

Sewell, pictured above, proved why he's the top offensive tackle in the West, stonewalling pretty much everyone they threw at him. He's really quick out of his stance and he doesn't go for head fakes or first moves. He has enough speed and quickness to handle outside rushers and the size to dispatch inside or bull rushes. Sewell also earned a trip to The Opening Finals with his performance.

2018 St. Louis (Honolulu, Hi.) OG/OC Eliki Tanuvasa looked great snapping the ball. He was able to handle every one of the defensive tackles he faced off against.

2018 Corvallis (Or.) OG Marco Brewer has looked good in every camp we've seen him participate. He just goes about his business 

2018 Granite Bay (Ca.) William Craig took home top honors for the linemen, earning the MVP award after the two-hour plus workout. He is a bit of an under-the-radar guy, but you can bet he'll start to hear from more schools now that he's gotten some recognition for his efforts.

Loved what I saw from Brown. He's quick, shows a good burst and he loves to get out and compete. From talking to most of the scouts on hand, he's one of the top, if not the top, runners on the West Coast.

2019 Bishop O'Dowd (Oakland, Ca.) RB Austin Jones looked really good. He's smooth and once he plants his foot, he gets downhill pretty quickly. He still needs to put on some size, but he's already considered one of the top runners on the West Coast among the juniors and he showed why on Sunday.

Johnson is widely considered one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the country for the 2019 class. The son of Oregon wide receivers coach Michael Johnson had his moments, but his mechanics aren't very good when he's tasked with throwing the ball. He's a fluid athlete and you can see how explosive he is when he gets out on the run, but his passing left a lot to be desired on Sunday, at least in the couple of sessions I saw.

2019 Graham (Wa.) Kapowsin QB Dylan Morris looked good throwing the ball during the sessions on the far field where the quarterbacks were asked to throw to a spot. He's always excelled in these workouts and he continues to impress with a good offseason. Now he just needs to translate that into a productive junior season. Morris was named the quarterback MVP by the staff. 

This was really my first chance to see 2019 Mount Si (Snoqualmie, Wa.) QB Cale Millen get a lot of reps and he impressed me with his release and the way he snapped things off. He appears to have added a bit of muscle to his frame, but he still has to get stronger, something that should come as he continues to mature.

One quarterback name to keep an eye on moving forward is 2020 Kahuku (Hi.) QB Sol-Jay Maiava. Like Johnson, he's probably considered a better runner than passer right now, but he's a pretty good passer as well. I liked the way he threw on the move and he has a pretty strong and accurate arm.

Foskey really impressed me with his size and athleticism. He's also got soft hands. He's put on close to 20 pounds since the end of the season and he showed the ability to get separation during the passing drills when he faced off with linebackers.
