Back in an all too familiar setting, with eerily similar results to the many times beforehand, the collection of talent was second to none at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (North Florida Regional).
NFL veteran Patell Troutman was the lead instructor and his assistants included one-time professionals Charles Bethune and Rod Harris, among a handful of others, each there to give back to the game.
There were many scholarship-worthy prospects in attendance and many of them can now be considered as possible All-American Bowl candidates for one of the upcoming games later on this year.
Jayden Mobley, QB, 2023, Melbourne (FL): The 6-foot-2 and 190-pounder has talked with multiple teams from Conference USA. Another possible destination could be Liberty. We’ll soon find out.
Joseph Wiesner, QB, 2023, Jacksonville Episcopal (FL): The 6-2 and 175-pounder made all the throws, at or near the sideline, over the middle, down the field too. It was a well-rounded effort.
Quinn Niemann, QB, 2023, Lake Minneola (FL): The 6-2 and 200-pounder opened up plenty of eyes. Now the task for him becomes to keep the attention that he was able to generate.
Chandler Mitzo, QB, 2024, Deltona (FL): The 6-2 and 185-pounder possesses loads of upside. That much is evident by interest from the likes of the Ivy League, also Western Kentucky.
Deuntae Burgess, RB, 2023, Mulberry (FL): South Florida seems to be intrigued by what the 6-foot and 200-pounder could have to offer. His name is one to remember, that much is certain.
J’nethen Jackson, RB, 2023, Jackson (FL): The 5-8 and 190-pounder was contacted by Georgia Southern in the not so distant past. The goal now is to keep up the friendly relations.
Kendrick Williams, WR, 2023 Bronson (FL): It would not be the least bit surprising to learn that the 6-foot and 170-pounder found a home with a team in the American Athletic Conference.
Brandon Raysor, WR, 2023, Catawba Ridge (SC): Mercer and Wagner are a couple of the early potential suitors for the 5-10 and 175-pounder. Other programs figure to follow suit.
D’Wayne Bain, OL, 2024, Newsome (FL): The 6-4 and 290-pounder looked the part. And played the part. This time next year, watch out. Sky’s the limit. He’s destined to play on Saturdays.
Jereal Lewis, DB, 2023, Godby (FL): Quick and fast, relentless and physical, the 5-11 and 160-pounder left a lasting impression on just above everyone, coaches and players alike.
Raymond Davis, DB, 2023, Crescent City (FL): Another burner, the 5-11 and 175-pounder turned more than a few heads. From start to finish, he was about as consistent as the come.
Cheddrick Henry, LB, 2023, Godby (FL): It’s only a matter of time before the bandwagon fills up for the 6-1 and 213-pounder. He’s already been on campus over at Florida State.
Brandon Beckham, DL, 2023, Pace (FL): The 6-1 and 285-pounder was difficult to deal with down in the trenches. He gave opponents fits, and at times, could not be stopped.

Worth mentioning, periodically and often within days, more information about the workout will be added in this space. That said, feel free to check back on a regular basis for the much-needed insight.
Also, most participants at the recent All-American Combine will soon be provided with plenty of additional details on a potential exclusive membership to the invite-only Red Zone Prospects (click here).
Additionally, likely late in the summer, invitations will be extended to one of the brand’s upcoming All-American Bowls held at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks.
Games take place at Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium, Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium, Texans’ NRG Stadium or Jaguars’ EverBank Field, among other venues.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making any decision on potential invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
