SAN ANTONIO, Texas- The third full day of practices for Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl is in the books, so it’s time to take a look at who the best performers have been by position for both the East and West squads this week.
Five-star quarterback Max Browne, the nation's top-ranked signal caller, has been the top performer this week at his position during practices for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. Saturday with television from NBC.
1- Max Browne, Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline- The USC commit has been the most consistent among the signal callers during the week. Browne is an accurate passer who operates smoothly within the offensive scheme, despite not having plus athleticism.
3- Jeremy Johnson, Montgomery (Ala.) Carver- Johnson has a quirky release that may cause a ball or two to be batted down at the next level, but the Auburn commitment has been one of the more accurate quarterbacks this week and throws a nice deep ball.
1- Thomas Tyner, Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha- Tyner is a good-sized back and has shown excellent explosiveness all week given his elite speed. Though the true test for the running backs will come during the game Saturday, the Oregon commit looks the part of a big-time prospect.
2- Derrick Green, Richmond (Va.) Varina- Green is a bull with quick feet that has been good at hitting the edge this week. The uncommitted prospect has been the top running back for the East squad. Michigan could be the team to beat here with Auburn and others in the mix.
3- Greg Bryant, Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage- On Thursday in particular, the Notre Dame commit showed excellent footwork and an ability to elude defenders.
Also considered- Justin Davis
1- Demarcus Robinson, Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach Valley- Despite going down with an ankle injury on Thursday, Robinson has been a big play waiting to happen in the passing game. He has good hands and deceptive speed that can allow him to burn defenders deep. Robinson will announce Saturday for either Florida or Clemson. He’s been committed to both schools at different times during the process.
2- Taquan Mizzell, Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside- The Virginia commit, who is playing slot receiver this week (he projects as a running back) is impressive running routes and has always had plenty of speed. He has shined in nearly every practice.
3- Steven Mitchell, Mission Hills (Calif.) Bishop Alemany- The speedy USC commit has made his share of big plays and uses his quickness to get open. He also has an excellent set of hands.
4- Ricky Seals-Jones, Sealy (Texas)- Seals-Jones, a five-star prospect, is a huge 6-foot-5 target, but has enough speed to make big plays in the vertical passing game. Seals-Jones is committed to Texas A&M, which has the nation’s best receiver class in the 2013 cycle.
1- DeSean Smith, Lake Charles (La.) Barbe- Smith is a tall, athletic prospect that has made play after play during the week and has been tops at his position. He is committed to LSU.
2- Jake Butt, Pickerington (Ohio) North- Butt had a solid first day of practice, but has been out with injury and illness the last two days. Butt is committed to Michigan.
1- Laremy Tunsil, Lake City (Fla.) Columbia- Though Tunsil missed Thursday’s practice, he’s been by far the most dominant offensive lineman on either squad, which should be expected from the country’s top offensive lineman. Tunsil is uncommitted. Alabama and Georgia leads Ole Miss and Florida State.
2- Steven Elmer, Midland (Mich.)- The Notre Dame commit has displayed good feet and punch and an excellent ability to pass rush this week. Elmer has more athleticism than perhaps we once thought.
3- Khaliel Rodgers, Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian- Rodgers has been his normal, nasty self all week, routinely winning one-on-one battles and making big blocks both in the run and pass game. He is a USC commit.
