SI's Tony Pauline stated that UNC senior G Jonathan Cooper will likely be a top 15 selection in April's Draft.

Alabama senior Chance Warmack will almost surely be the first guard selected, but Pauline is confident Cooper will be close behind. Last April, two premiere guard prospects were selected int he first-round, but not until pick numbers 24 and 27. Cooper excels when asked to pull and work in space.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Stanford head coach David Shaw will not entertain NFL offers.

Welcome to your newest holiday tradition, the time of year when Shaw preemptively shoots down NFL rumors. "Despite being viewed as perhaps the top coaching candidate in the college ranks, Shaw has told people he plans to remain at Stanford, where he loves working with student-athletes and wants to continue coaching, according to sources," Schefter wrote. "Shaw is highly regarded in NFL circles, where he is viewed as one of the most coveted candidates in the country due to his credentials." Despite a down year in 2014, Shaw is 41-12 in four seasons at Stanford.

Boise State redshirt junior RB Jay Ajayi announced on Sunday that he will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

The decision reportedly was made before Ajayi heard back from the NFL College Advisory Board, which isn't a big surprise, as he'd no doubt decided to bolt at some point during the season. Ajayi heads into the Fiesta Bowl against Arizona with 1,689 rushing yards and 25 rushing touchdowns, as well as 45 receptions for 536 yards and four scores. It's been reported that some scouts like Ajayi more than former Broncos' runner Doug Martin. We think the newest BSU star runner will hear his name called at some point on Day 2.

FSU redshirt sophomore Jameis Winston's attorney, David Cornwell, tweeted the QB has been cleared of charges in his conduct hearing.

"In sum, the preponderance of the evidence has not shown that you are responsible for ANY of the charged violations of the Code," the tweet read. Winston's hearing took place a few weeks ago with the conclusion expected to be announced around this time, so the timeline checks out. FSU will play Oregon on Jan. 1 in the first round of the CFB Playoff, and everything points to Jameis starting that game.

The Redskins win Saturday "may have clinched" the Titans and Bucs as the two staffs coaching the 2015 Senior Bowl, per Patrick Woo.

Both teams will be looking at quarterbacks during the draft process, but we highly doubt they will find one at the Senior Bowl unless Marcus Mariota attends the event. However, there is still plenty of benefit in coaching the event and putting prospects on your roster through practices.

North Dakota State senior RB John Crockett rushed for 166 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries in the school's 35-3 win over Sam Houston State.

He added another 66 receiving yards. Crockett has been highly productive during his time at NDSU, but his start was a bit delayed due to academic issues. He isn't overly impressive as an athlete, however, Crockett is very fluid when reading blocks to stay between the tackles or bounce outside. He will attend the East West Shrine game.

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge completed 20-of-37 attempts for 279 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, and rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 33-28 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday in the Camelia Bowl.

Bridge was the victim of a comedy of drops, and he complained on the sidelines at one point that his receivers weren't running the correct routes, according to the ESPN broadcast team. For his part, Bridge consistently wasn't setting his feet in the pocket. To be fair to both parties, the Jags recently hired new OC Bryant Vincent, the former UAB OC, and trotted out a new scheme on short notice. Vincent, it should be added, admitted he hadn't had time to watch South Alabama film, so he obviously didn't have a great handle on his personnel. Bridge has an NFL-grade gun, and NFL-grade athleticism, but he's about as raw as they come, with happy feet and a propensity to fire fastballs to nearby receivers expecting changeups. CBS projects the signal-caller as a mid-to-late round draft pick. "The ball shoots off his hand and he has some traits you cannot teach," an AFC North scout said earlier this year. "I'm just not sure how naturally the game comes to him."

Washington defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski told the Seattle Times that allegations of former junior CB Marcus Peters choking a coach were "bull****."

The allegations were made in both the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and NFL.com. "It’s bull****," UW defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski said. "We had our issues with Marcus, but there was never any physical altercation. Not with this staff." Peters was suspended for one game after he was seen throwing his helmet and gloves and arguing with Washington assistants during a win against Eastern Washington in September. Up until his dismissal, we also heard reports of further verbal altercations with the coaching staff, as well as a skipped practice. Kwiatkowski's quote is ultimately good news for Peters, but he still has plenty of questions to answer.

UCLA junior WR Jordan Payton will not declare for the NFL Draft.

"I’m coming back," Payton told reporters after Saturday's practice. "There were reports saying that I was leaving or something, but I’m coming back. Didn’t really even think about leaving, to be honest with you." Payton is perhaps referring to Tony Pauline's report last weekend. Either way, we're pleased to hear that he's returning to school, as Payton was graded as a mid- to late-round pick. Payton leads the Bruins with 63 receptions for 896 yards and seven touchdowns.

Mississippi State redshirt junior QB Dak Prescott received a grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board but declined to disclose it to the media.

"I don't think it's any more round," Prescott said. "Just what I feel (is) best for me, what I feel more comfortable doing." The signal-caller said in October that he would enter the draft if he were projected as a first-rounder, and would consider it if he were projected as a Round 2 or 3 pick. He said his thinking has changed, now, though we're guessing the committee told Prescott that he isn't projected to go in the first- or second-round. "I still have another year to come back and improve, get better if I need to," Prescott said. The deadline to declare early for the draft is Jan. 15.

Jets QB Michael Vick called FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston "the future of the NFL."

An interesting take indeed from a player who himself was once called the future of the NFL. "I think he's a great player," Vick said. "I look forward to watching him. I have high expectations for him. I think he, over time, has made some poor decisions. Have I been there to know exactly what happened? No. But I do know one thing: He may make some poor decisions, but he gets on that football field and he plays his ass off. Yeah, he can mature. He'll mature. I see him maturing as time goes on. Like, this year hasn't been as bad of a year as the first year was for Jameis. I think the kid will continue to improve. I think he's the future of the NFL." Winston is a projected top-five pick, and a possible target of Vick's Jets.

Ohio State redshirt freshman QB J.T. Barrett "still has some work to do with mechanics and accuracy, but he shares similar traits to Alex Smith when he was playing in Urban Meyer's system at Utah," Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl wrote.

"He had some struggles early on, but he was arguably the most improved player on this list throughout the season," they wrote. "Barrett still has some work to do with mechanics and accuracy, but he shares similar traits to Alex Smith when he was playing in Urban Meyer's system at Utah, with his ability to make quick and efficient decisions while also showing the mobility to move the chains with his legs." Barrett was named the Big 10's freshman of the year and finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting after posting 3,772 total yards and 45 total touchdowns. Barrett broke his ankle versus Michigan and is out for the season, though he's expected to be ready for spring practices.
