Oregon OLB Dion Jordan measured in at 6'6 1/4 inches and 248 pounds at the NFL Combine.

The height was never a question for Jordan, but he did finish the 2012 season weighing 225 pounds. He's added more than 20 pounds to his frame since then after choosing to wait on shoulder surgery until after the NFL Combine. He could put on a show in Indy.

Oklahoma sophomore CB Parrish Cobb was arrested for three counts of aggravated robbery.

He's currently being held. Police suspect Cobb of robbing a pedestrian of his wallet while armed on Jan. 10. Baylor police and nearby Bellmead authorities also want to talk to Cobb about armed robberies they're investigating. Oklahoma suspended Cobb, who started two games and made four appearances as a true freshman in 2016.

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson declined an invitation to attend the Senior Bowl.

Of the two outcomes, this one was most likely. Watson graduated in December, so he was eligible for the event and would have been coached by the Cleveland Browns who own the No. 1 pick. Watson cited the long season as to why he declined the opportunity, which is very valid. Other passers have declined in the past, including Marcus Mariota. Watson is locked into a three-way competition for the first quarterback off the board with Mitch Trubisky and DeShone Kizer. None will be in Mobile, AL. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report first reported the news.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that "after surveying league people during the first day of Shrine [Game] practice, the overwhelming belief is [Clemson QB Deshaun] Watson will receive second-round grades in war rooms."

"He’ll grade well in the areas of character and leadership," Pauline writes, "but his accuracy down the field and out to the flanks has been a constant worry. Teams here also question whether or not Watson can play from the pocket." The analyst doesn't think the first round is out of the question for the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder, but believes that would likely only come if a team in need of a quarterback were to trade up from the second round to grab Watson in the final 10 picks of Round 1 (much like the Vikings did with Teddy Bridgewater).

Lauren Rew of FM 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City reports that Auburn has interviewed Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich for their open position.

Yurcich -- or whomever Auburn ends up hiring -- will take over for Tigers OC Rhett Lashlee, who jumped ship for UConn earlier this offseason. Yurcich was a 2016 nominee for the Broyles Award (handed out annually to the nation's top assistant coach) and helped forge an offense which ranked 14th in the country in total offense this past season. He has been with the Cowboys since 2013. One name that has already reportedly been nixed from the running at Auburn -- that of former Baylor HC Art Briles.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Western Michigan has hired Indiana coordinator Kevin Johns to serve as offensive coordinator.

Football Scoop was first on this one. Johns has been a versatile piece of Indiana coaching staff over the past six seasons and has worked as a coordinator, a quarterbacks coach and a wide receivers coach. Prior to that stint with the Hoosiers, he had spent seven years on the Northwestern sideline. Western Michigan has yet to name a defensive coordinator, but that figures to happen in relatively short order.

Former Virginia Tech HC Frank Beamer has been added to the College Football Playoff selection committee.

The selection committee has filled all three of their vacant seats. In addition to Beamer, Ohio State AD Gene Smith and Robert Morris President Chris Howard will also be helping to sort out the Playoff over the next three years. "To join a group with so many great minds and such a diverse range of experience, I just want to pull my weight," Beamer said. "The committee has an important role, and I’ll do everything asked of me to help rank the best teams in America for the right to compete for the national championship."

The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Michigan RB coach Tyrone Wheatley to serve in the same capacity.

Wheatley was brought on staff by Michigan in the 2015 offseason. This past season, he oversaw a Wolverines rushing attack which racked up 2,768 yards. While Michigan should be able to find a suitable candidate to replace Wheatley in short order, they could end up taking a slight recruiting hit in the long run. Wheatley was a gem in that arena, ranking as the seventh-best recruiter in the country. He has helped secure 10 commitments in the 2017 class.

Arkansas promoted DB coach Paul Rhoads to defensive coordinator.

Rhoads takes over for Robb Smith, who accepted the defensive-coordinating position at Minnesota earlier this month. The 49-year-old Rhoads initially joined the Arkansas staff as DB coach last winter. Prior to that gig, he had worked as head coach at Iowa State from 2009-2015. He also has coordinating experience with Auburn and Pittsburgh. With Rhoads now guiding the Razorback defense in total, it is likely that Arkansas will shift from a 4-3 scheme to a 3-4 scheme for the 2017 campaign.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein believes Pitt QB Nathan Peterman could be an NFL starter.

Peterman has "the poise, accuracy and field vision" to earn that label, according to Zierlein. So many are going to try to find the next Dak Prescott, but that goal is impossible. Peterman, however, could prove to be a great value and is easily the top senior passer in this class. He was bumped up to the Senior Bowl a few weeks ago.

The Oregonian's Andrew Greif reports that three Oregon players have been hospitalized following "grueling" strength and conditioning workouts last week.

Per Greif, the three players in question are OLs Doug Brenner and Sam Poutasi and TE Cam McCormick. While the trio remains hospitalized at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield, Oregon, they are said to be listed in fair condition. Greif writes that the workouts have been "described by multiple sources as akin to military basic training, with one said to include up to an hour of continuous push-ups and up-downs." In a released statement, Oregon said, "While we cannot comment on the health of our individual students, we have implemented modifications as we transition back into full training to prevent further occurrences."

Cal hired Eastern Washington HC Beau Baldwin to serve as offensive coordinator.

Baldwin takes over for Jake Spavital, who is moving on to tackle the offensive-coordinating position at West Virginia. With Eastern Washington (he served as head coach for nine season), Baldwin's offenses were about as explosive as they come. In the FCS ranks, the Eagles finished third in points scored in 2016, posting 42.36 on average. That wasn't even their most potent season in recent memory, as they finished first in the FCS in scoring back in 2014. We love the hire, as it provides a perfect yin to the defensive yang of new HC Justin Wilcox (formerly Wisconsin's defensive coordinator).
