Scout.com takes a look at the talents who will be filling out the Blue Team roster in the Offense-defense All-American Bowl, which will take place in reliant Stadium on December, 30th...

Scout.com 3-star, No. 50 QB

Tyler Cogswell (6'4, 235) – Uncommitted
Scout.com 3-star, No. 59 QB

Quick Hitter: Hosick is the highest rated signal caller, but all three possess the ability to find open targets or move the ball on the ground if things break down.

Scout.com 4-star, No. 38 RB

Kaleb Blanchard (6'0, 212) – Uncommitted

Chase Abbington (6'4, 210) – Missouri Commit
Scout.com 4-star, No. 12 OLB (Listed as RB/LB on O-D roster)

Quick Hitter: Averaging, over 6'0 and 200 pounds this unit will be bringing a collective load to the offense. They possess size, speed and power.

Pharoh Cooper (5'11, 190) - South Carolina Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 107 WR

Quick Hitter: The O-D bowl selection committee had a strong idea by taking to ACC/SEC country for its wide receivers. They possess great size and natural ball skills.

Blue Team OL:
Cory Helms (6'4, 290) – Wake Forest Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 15 Center

Tyler Tezeno (6'6, 285) – West Virginia Commit

Ja'Braylin Thomas (6'6, 320) – Houston Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 54 OT

Quick Hitter: You will not find a 4-star prospect on this list, but there is still plenty of talent. The interior linemen have nice size and the tackles have great length.

Blue Team DL:
Jamone Boyd (6'4, 245) – Uncommitted
Scout.com 4-star, No. 31 DE

Michael Patterson (6'4, 240) – LSU
Scout.com 3-star, No. 43 DE

Scout.com 4-star, No. 9 DT

Tevin Lawson (6'4, 275) – LSU Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 51 DT

Quick Hitter: The defensive tackle rotation will be just insane. Three Scout.com four-stars will be in the trenches to go along with solid talent on the edge.

Blue Team LB:
James Hearns (6'3, 235) - Florida Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 23 MLB

Nick Ramirez (6'2, 230) - Kansas State Commit

Scout.com 4-star, No. 16 DE (Listed as OLB/DE on O-D roster)

Gerald Turner (6'1, 230) - South Carolina Commit
Scout.com 3-star, No. 50 MLB

Jalen Stevens (6'3, 216) - Uncommitted
Scout.com 3-star, No. 115 OLB

Quick Hitter: Best bet is that Drennon plays on the defensive line. With four listed MLBs it will be interesting to see who lands where.

Trevell Dixon (6'1, 195) - Uncommitted
Scout.com 3-star, No. 101 S

Quick Hitter: The O-D bowl has a nice mix of true corners and true safeties. Jamal Carter has a chance to be the best talent in the game.
