SI's Tony Pauline believes that Arkansas senior WR Cobi Hamilton could be a surprise pick late in the second-round.

Pauline cites Hamilton's "ability to find open space in the defense then pick up big chunks of yardage running after the catch." He adds that this is a "thin" receiver class, especially among seniors, so Hamilton's name could be called earlier than expected.

Michigan State redshirt senior WR Tony Lippett will start at cornerback Saturday against Penn State.

It was also reported last week that Lippett (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) would start two-ways, but that ended up not being the case. He did appear in the game, against Rutgers, as a CB. However, the starting bit seems likely to go down this weekend, as coach Mark Dantonio has discussed the move with the media and Lippett is listed No. 1 on both the WR and CB portions of the depth charts. He will become the school's first two-way starter since 1968. This move isn't about pageantry. Instead, according to Dantonio, he hopes to aid Lippett's draft stock.

The Big Ten declared Ohio State junior DE Noah Spence permanently ineligible.

Spence failed a second drug test earlier this season, putting him in jeopardy for this ruling (The Big Ten handbook states that a student athlete who fails a second drug test "shall be declared permanently ineligible for all further intercollegiate competition in all sports."). Ohio State helped him through the appeals process, which culminated in today's ruling. "While we are disappointed in the outcome, we are pleased that Noah has come a long way and we are very proud of the progress he has made with regard to his health," Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith said. Spence tweeted, "Now it's time to get ready for the next level," so expect him to declare for the spring draft. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Spence as a Rds. 1-2 prospect over the summer, though the defender's failed drug tests and lost season figure to knock him further down the board.

Baylor coach Art Briles said Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty is this year's Blake Bortles and the best QB in the 2015 draft.

"Obviously, I'm biased," Briles added. NFL.com's Charles Davis understands the comparison. "Petty (6-foot-3, 230) is similar in size to Bortles (6-5, 232), and he's a big, strong runner, just like Bortles," Davis wrote. "Will Petty rise up draft boards like Bortles, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, did? That remains to be seen, but I do expect that the closer we get to the draft, the more NFL people are going to like what they see from Petty, especially when they get a chance to meet and work with him closely." Davis believes UCLA's Brett Hundley, Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston will all be rated ahead of Petty if they declare early, but didn't dismiss the possibility of Petty shooting up draft boards during the post-season evaluation process.

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill said senior RB David Cobb is "very questionable" for Saturday's game at Wisconsin.

This is a troubling development indeed, as Kill had previously designated Cobb, injured in last week's win over Nebraska, merely "questionable." Forty-eight hours later has brought a slight downgrade to that prognosis. Cobb's loss would cripple Minnesota's run-heavy offense. He's rushed for 1,430 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. The Golden Gophers also might be without backup tailback Berkley Edwards, who suffered a concussion against Nebraska. If both Cobb and Edwards can't go, Minnesota figures to prescribe a heavy dose of QB runs for Mitch Leidner, as well as cross their fingers that RBs Donnell Kirkwood and Rodrick Williams can be effective.

Stanford senior WR Ty Mongtomery has been ruled out for the upcoming game against UCLA with a shoulder injury.

Montgomery suffered the right shoulder injury against Cal. Physicality after the catch is a staple of Montgomery's game, as he wins with the ball in his hands out of the backfield or on screens. Head coach David Shaw said it is a "distinct possibility" Montgomery returns for the school's bowl game. Redshirt junior Jordan Pratt was listed as a starter in Ty's place.

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III will not shadow FSU senior WR Rashad Greene.

Hargreaves is one of the top corners in the country, and you will be hearing all about him this summer. However, few corners actually prefer to shadow opposing receivers, especially ones that also work in the slot (like Greene). Jameis Winston has tended to lock on to Greene and Nick O'Leary this season, and expect to Florida attempt to bait Winston into interceptions with underneath coverage.

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore DL Jarron Jones will miss the remainder of the season with a lisfranc injury.

Recovery is a four to six month process. Jones was obviously hobbled against Louisville, but has made big plays each week once using his length and strength to push his opponent in the backfield. Jones is draft-eligible, however, do not expect him to declare.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Southeastern Louisiana senior Bryan Bennett as the No. 6 QB in the 2015 class.

If that name sounds familiar, Bennett is the quarterback Marcus Mariota beat out for the starting job a few years ago. In fact, many believed Bennett was the favorite to win that job. He needs plenty of refinement in the pocket, but right now Bennett is best outside of structure. That is not a recipe for sustained NFL success.

LSU LT La'El Collins has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Collins' evaluation is reportedly "all over the board," according to draft insider Tony Pauline. We are huge fans of Collins because of his use of length, functional strength and assertiveness. However, there are a handful of very poor plays, and some will focus on those as the foundation of his report.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley told Jim Rome "there is a really good chance" last weekend's win was his last versus USC.

"The conversation keep coming up. I’ve got my degree," Hundley said during the interview. "I’ve done everything I wanted to do here. I’ve left something really, truly great, and I feel good. That’s probably my last one against USC." This is not a surprise, but many evaluators have suggested Hundley return to school for one more year to refine his skills in the pocket.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah spoke with two NFL executives who believe Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper would have ranked as the fourth best prospect at the position in last year's class.

We agree with these player personnel staffers, placing Cooper behind Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans and Odell Beckham Jr. In fact, Rotoworld's Josh Norris does not rank Cooper as the top receiver in his own class. Two other executives believe Cooper would have ranked third, while one lone NFLer placed him second, just behind Sammy Watkins.
