Draft insider Tony Pauline says the story of the Combine thus far is that a "number of teams" have UNC G Jonathan Cooper ranked ahead of Alabama's Chance Warmack.

We don't buy this in terms of a general evaluation, but a scheme specific determination is possible. Cooper could thrive in a situation that predominantly uses zone blocking due to his comfort and mobility in space. Per Pauline, "Cooper was told to purposely keep his weight down at North Carolina and would have no problem carrying additional bulk."

In an interview on WSNP 105.5 FM, former Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville indicated that he has no plans to coach in the near future.

Tuberville, 62, stepped down as Cincinnati's head coach in December. He is seriously considering a run at the Alabama governor-ship. "I’ve been there done that for many many years in college football. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Talking about this governor thing, I’m kind of testing the wind," Tuberville said, adding that he "want[s] to do a little something different." He didn't rule out possibly coaching again down the road, but that a return to the collegiate ranks doesn't appear to be on his radar right now.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein said on the NFL Fantasy Live podcast that LSU RB Leonard Fournette is in the same class of back as Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker and Eric Dickerson in terms of size and speed.

"We're talking about elite size and speed. When I say elite size and speed, I'm saying Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, I guess you could say Eric Dickerson, really, because he was bigger than people think, and he was definitely fast," Zierlein said. All of this being said, though, the analyst actually views FSU's Dalvin Cook as the better all-around NFL prospect. Pro Football Focus has likened the 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette to Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley. His medical check-ups at the Combine are going to be of some interest, as it was reported during the season that the nagging ankle injury which bothered Fournette in 2016 was a chronic issue.

North Texas has signed HC Seth Littrell to a new five-year contract.

Littrell, who had been hired as Mean Green head coach in December 2015, initially received a five-year contract set to run through 2020.

Per the Associated Press, the contract is in the monetary neighborhood of $5 million. In a statement, Littrell said, "It means a lot to me to move forward with this new deal and continue to work hard with my staff to transform this into the championship-caliber program that our tremendous university, fans and alumni deserve."

Syracuse redshirt junior S Antwan Cordy was granted a medical redshirt by the NCAA.

The 5-foot-8, 175-pound Cordy is the Orange's top returning defensive back. Cordy suffered a season-ending forearm injury in the loss to Louisville last season. He now has two years left of eligibility. Back in 2015, Cordy set a new program record for tackles for loss by a defensive back with 12.

Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson has withdrawn from school for the spring semester while dealing with a "significant" medical issue.

The medical issue led to Thompson being taken by police to an Athens hospital. Georgia said in a statement that Thompson had "an adverse reaction to medications prescribed specifically for his medical condition." Thompson was, according to the Associated Press, "behaving incoherently, and appeared to be experiencing some type of unknown medical problem." The undisclosed medical issue led him to be hospitalized recently for an extended stay. Thompson led the team with 9.5 TFL last year.

North Carolina State moved junior WR Nyheim Hines to RB.

This was an expected move with 1,000-yard rusher Matt Dayes out the door. There's plenty of touches for Hines to soak up. Dayes led the Wolfpack with 281 touches last year ago. Nobody else on the team had 100. With Reggie Gallaspy and Johnny Frasier being limited or held out of spring practices, Hines will receive the bulk of the RB reps. The speedy weapon posted a 43-525-0 line last year as primarily a receiver.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz worked out with Cal WR Chad Hansen and Eastern Washington WR Cooper Kupp.

Eagles fans rejoice. The team will add multiple receivers this offseason, likely in free agency and via the draft. Hansen is still growing into his game, has great after catch speed and projects to the outside. Kupp dominated the slot in college and will fit that same role in the NFL. Both are day two types.

Pitt RB James Conner's received a recent clean lymphoma scan, according to Adam Schefter.

This is fantastic news. Conner played in 2016 after undergoing chemotherapy, amassing 216 carries for 1,060 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns. Conner is unlikely to go before day three, but we can't wait to see him in Indianapolis. His aggression and balance for a big back is impressive.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Cal's Davis Webb is considered a top 5 QB in the draft.

Webb will go through a near complete workout at the NFL Combine. Webb seems to be the third day quarterback "climbing" boards early in the process. There is one everyday. Webb looked solid in comparison to other Senior Bow quarterbacks, but that isn't a strong compliment. One executive recently told Daniel Jeremiah that Webb will be the top quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft. Webb transferred to Cal after losing out to Pat Mahomes at Texas Tech.

UCLA edge rusher Takk McKinley will have surgery to repair a torn labrum and broken glenoid in his shoulder following the NFL Combine.

McKinley will attempt a near complete workout at the Combine, but the healing process following the surgery is 5-6 months, which does not give a lot of leeway for training camp or the start of the 2017 season. McKinley was not on the final Senior Bowl roster due to the injury. Every team has been notified of the injury, and Takk might even try the bench press in Indy. Many view Takk as a top 20 talent.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein suggests the Lions might "overhaul" the TE position this offseason.

"This is an area Detroit could try to make a big splash," Rothstein writes. Rotoworld's Josh Norris and Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting have brought up the possibility of the Lions drafting a tight end in round one since the Senior Bowl. The team has yet to decide on Eric Ebron's fifth-year option, but no matter what a slot target to fill Anquan Boldin's role, with possible potential to play inline, is an important part of the offense.
