Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl notes he doesn't "see it" with Syracuse's Ryan Nassib and evaluates the QB as a Day 3 prospect.

Weidl was keeping an eye on Nassib while evaluating USF defensive tackle Cory Grissom, but we suspect he has been exposed to Nassib more than this one time. Like other quarterbacks, Nassib's projections will be scattered all over the board.

Rutgers senior QB Gary Nova was helped off the field just before half time in the game against Nebraska with a knee injury.

It looked potentially serious, but we won't speculate on specifics. It seems like Nova is in his seventh season as the school's starter. Prior to exiting, Nova complete 8 of 19 attempts for 71 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

One AFC college scouting director believes Alabama junior RB TJ Yeldon will be a better NFL player than he has been in college.

The exec's reasoning? "Because he is used in a rotation, plus he's avoided the high carries that some college backs have accumulated." NFL Media's Albert Breer received comparisons of Darren McFadden and DeAngelo Williams for Yeldon's NFL future. The running back has flashed his best work this season.

NFL execs are still split on Michigan WR Devin Funchess' position at the next level.

NFL Media's Albert Breer spoke with one AFC college scouting director who believes Funchess is "strictly a wideout," while one "veteran exec" sees him purely as a move tight end. Rotoworld's Josh Norris does not wee why a team would line Funchess up inline, so his real role will be as a receiver, either in the slot or out wide. Labels will really only matter for contract purposes. Funchess faces Michigan State's Trae Waynes on Saturday in a great matchup.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel completed 13 of 22 attempts for 196 yards and a touchdown versus USF before exiting at halftime with a rib injury.

Kiel has been dealing with a rib injury since the first week of October, and it flared up again in this contest. Kiel added another touchdown on the ground, but his most impressive moments were keeping his eyes up and climbing the pocket. He is just in his first season as a starter, so we do not expect Kiel to contemplate jumping to the NFL. He has made more puzzling decisions before, however.

Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota completed 18 of 30 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 59-41 win over Cal.

It was Mariota's first interception of the season, but that certainly did not negatively mask a great performance. Mariota made big boy throws downfield, including multiple passes that resulted in over 20 yards. He was limited to 36 rushing yards and used his mobility for passing success rather than running. Oregon faces Stanford next week.

West Virginia senior WR Kevin White has drawn 11 defensive pass interference flags this season.

White has been an absolute monster. Josh Norris would say White has emerged as a receiver prospect who wins in the big and small games, a lethal combination. His stiffest test might have come last week against a physical Baylor corner. Production wise, White has amassed 69 catches for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns.

Oregon junior DL Arik Armstead and sophomore RB Thomas Tyner did not travel for the school's game against Cal.

Some might look at this from an injury perspective, but we are not so sure. Team officials did not end the speculation since they did not give a specific reason. Armstead did miss time recently with a left ankle injury (now two of the last three games), but he was confident he would play this week. Tyner did hurt his shoulder last week against Washington. Kicker Matt Wogan was also left at home.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "there’s no definitive word" about whether or not Stanford junior T Andrus Peat will declare for the draft at present time.

Everybody and their mother is assuming Peat is a goner after this season, but we'll have to wait until over the winter to get word from the horse's mouth. "I’ve been told all along Peat is concentrating on the season at hand and will move his focus towards the draft after the campaign," Pauline wrote. Peat is likely to go in the top half of the first round.

Washington junior OLB Shaq Thompson and junior CB Marcus Peters will both declare for the draft after this season, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Both look like first-round picks, though each has questions surrounding them. For Thompson, scouts may be concerned by the former's safety size and lack of experience at linebacker. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder, who we compare to Ryan Shazier, has also seen time at running back. Peters, meanwhile, will have to answer questions about his off-the-field temperament.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "people close to the Indiana Hoosier program are planning for the departure of [junior RB] Tevin Coleman at seasons end."

We are of two minds on this. We love Coleman's ability -- comparing him to Darren McFadden -- and believe that most highly-touted underclassmen RBs with an opportunity to go no later than Day 2 should jump early to the NFL. However, Coleman might be an exception. This draft class will be loaded with runners -- from Georgia's Todd Gurley to Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon to Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah to Boise State's Jay Ajayi to South Carolina's Mike Davis to Miami's Duke Johnson, and more -- and Coleman might be better off, from a financial standpoint, of returning to school for one more season to make a run at the Heisman and Round 1. Of course, it's difficult to begrudge the decision of a person who wants to begin their career and capitalize on one additional year of financial security to do so. Coleman is on pace to finish in the top 10 in college football history in yards from scrimmage.
Oct 24 - 5:33 PM

ECU senior WR Justin Hardy caught 14 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown in the school's 31-21 win over UConn.

Hardy is a very good slot receiver at the college level and is lucky to be playing the spot where he projects in the NFL. There is plenty of quickness and body control from his inside position, but do not expect him to consistently take the top of coverages. Hardy could be an early third day pick who makes his mark in the short and intermediate areas.
