According to Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com, Utah NT Star Lotulelei has dropped out of January's Senior Bowl.

Per Campbell, Lotulelei simply "declined" his invite rather than citing an injury. The mammoth senior is in the running to be a top-three overall draft pick, and has ostensibly been advised by his agents that participating in the all-star game could only stand to hurt his draft stock. While the decision is slightly disappointing for avid draftniks and Senior Bowl observers, Lotulelei's lack of participation is understandable from a business standpoint.

Michigan QB Jake Rudock was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

In a rundown of the most surprising combine omissions, CBS Sports analyst Dane Brugler wrote of Rudock, "A passer who gained confidence with each snap, Rudock doesn't have ideal physical traits, but the game appeared to slow down for him in the second half of the season." To Brugler's point, the 6-foot-3, 280-pounder threw for more than 250 yards just once in the first eight games before hitting that mark in each of his final five games. In those five contests, he held a 14/2 TD/INT ratio (he posted a 6/7 TD/INT ratio over the previous eight games). "Yes, his tools are average-at-best," Brugler concluded, "but his intelligence and intangibles will give him a chance." Failing to find a combine invite isn't necessarily a sign of future doom--last April, 41 players who didn't attend ended up being drafted, three hitting the fourth round. Still, it makes the climb that much more difficult.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer indicated that five-star DE Nick Bosa will not take a redshirt in 2016.

Said Meyer, "[Bosa]'s playing. He had the knee injury, but he's well ahead of schedule. Looks fantastic, and he's a little ahead of his brother at this time." The knee injury in question was a torn ACL suffered during his senior campaign with St. Thomas Aquinas. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound clone/brother of potential No. 1 pick Joey Bosa is hoping to be healthy enough for August camp. As to the hype that will inevitably follow the five-star dynamo-in-the-making, co-DC Luke Fickell said, "Nick is a mature kid that I don't think will bat an eye coming in here. Whether he wears the No. 97, whether he looks like Joey or walks like Joey, the reality is he's Nick. He's grown up with this his whole life."

At the NFL Combine, TCU QB Trevone Boykin will work out with the quarterbacks.

"I’m told Boykin has been doing receiver work during his combine preparation but presently there are no plans for him to run routes or catch passes in Indianapolis or during pro-day at TCU," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who brought us this dispatch. "Rather Boykin will workout at receiver as teams come to campus to individually test Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee." We're hoping Boykin's stubbornness (seen another way, his conviction) won't cost him a potential NFL career. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reported last month that the Senior Bowl moved on from Boykin because he didn't agree to exclusively play wide receiver.

Stanford graduate RB Barry J. Sanders transferred to Oklahoma State.

Sanders is the son of Heisman-winning Cowboys legend Barry Sanders. "His message to me was to keep an open mind," Sanders said. "I think that he would have wanted me to look at more schools. He definitely didn’t want me to make a decision without considering other options." Set to graduate in the spring, Sanders is eligible to play immediately in 2016. The former four-star recruit out of Oklahoma didn't live up to expectations on the East Coast. Across three seasons, Sanders rushed for 672 yards and five touchdowns, caught 12 passes for 89 yards and averaged 9.5 yards on 10 punt returns. He figures to see the field more often for the Pokes. They don't, after all, have Christian McCaffrey.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Notre Dame WR Will Fuller to Marvin Harrison.

This is quite a comparison for a player Rotoworld does not consider a first-round prospect. To be fair, Fuller is only Mayock's No. 5-rated receiver in the class, so he isn't exactly saying that Fuller is Harrison, but rather that they share many commonalities. For instance, Fuller and Harrison share 6-foot, 185-pound frames. Harrison, recently announced as part of the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, was the No. 4 receiver selected in 1996 behind Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn and Eddie Kennison.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Cowboys list Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey No. 1 overall on their board.

This one is juicy, though we do wonder if Dallas leaked this report as a smokescreen to conceal their interest in another prospect (if they loved one of the quarterback prospects, for instance, and hoped to give the imprecision that they intended to use the No. 4 pick for immediate help instead). Either way, Ramsey is the type of defensive piece who would be worthy of the No. 1 pick (in fact, that's where Josh Norris currently has him mocked). The corner-safety hybrid will interest the Titans, Browns and Chargers, all picking before Dallas.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock ranks North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz as the best quarterback in the draft.

Mayock's position rankings were released Wednesday. In them, he sides with Wentz over Jared Goff of California. Following those two, in order, are Paxton Lynch (Memphis), Connor Cook (Michigan State) and Dak Prescott (Mississippi State). Mayock's love of Wentz is no surprise after the analyst gushed over the Bison star at the Senior Bowl. We find it a bit more interesting that Mayock has Prescott No. 5. There are a few other developmental quarterbacks we'd prefer over the Bulldog. We're a bit concerned that Prescott has never shown an ability to work through progressions.

Iowa State dismissed WR D'Vario Montgomery.

First-year head coach Matt Campbell gave Montgomery the boot for an unspecified violation of team rules. Montgomery, who began his career at USF, had 27 receptions for 335 yards and three scores last season. He led the Cyclones with 605 yards receiving in 2014. The 6-foot-5, 200-pounder has all sorts of talent if he decides to behave himself.

Clemson junior ILB Ben Boulware fired back at Draft Wire NFL draft analyst Jon Ledyard after the writer questioned Boulware's pro potential.

Ledyard tweeted the following in response to a question about Boulware's potential to become a "top prospect": "Probably not. Short, squatty frame with minimal tackle radius and limited athleticism. But man he loves football and contact." Boulware didn't take well to that. He tweeted a picture of a sensational leaping play in coverage he made against Oklahoma last month and added the caption "limited athleticism." Boulware then tweeted a video of corralling Derrick Henry with the caption: "minimal tackle radius"...didn't he just win the Heisman too?" Boulware, a prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft, has another year on campus to prove himself. For the record, we think he needs to work on his coverage. Please don't be mad at us, Ben. Your Twitter game is on point.

A federal lawsuit filed by six unnamed women Tuesday against the University of Tennessee alleges football players assaulted former WR Drae Bowles twice because he helped a woman who said she was raped by former Volunteers A.J. Johnson and Mike Williams.

The lawsuit is sprawling, shocking and specific, claiming that the university "has created a student culture that enables sexual assaults by student-athletes, especially football players, and then uses an unusual, legalistic adjudication process that is biased against victims who step forward." Bowles comes into the picture because he took "Plaintiff Doe IV to the hospital the night of her assault" and "supported her decision to report the incident to the authorities." According to the suit, Bowles was assaulted by his Vols teammates that night and then by the same teammates a few days later at the football facility. Curtis Maggitt, the suit states, confronted Bowles in the locker room "before the team was instructed by head coach Butch Jones not to talk to him and before Bowles was given time away from the team." Bowles later transferred to Chattanooga.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes South Carolina WR Pharoh Cooper is a superior prospect to Braxton Miller.

Brugler admits he is likely higher on Cooper's game than most and considers him a top five receiver in the class. The South Carolina product has started to receiver more buzz as evaluators dive into junior tape. Cooper virtually carried the South Carolina passing game for a couple of seasons and was used both outside and inside, displaying skills in both spots. He's an explosive player who could see his early snaps inside.
