NFL Films' Greg Cosell prefers Florida's Sharrif Floyd over Utah's Star Lotulelei, regardless of the latter's apparent heart issue.

In fact, Floyd is Cosell's favorite player he has studied thus far. "Great hips, nimble," Cosell tweeted. He likes how the Gators' defensive lineman played through and around blocks, with good "closing burst" and is an interior player that thrives on making tackles for loss.

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.

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.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "is quickly playing his way into second-round consideration with his ability not just to run but also catch the football," said an NFC scout.

We are generally of the mindset that underclassmen who are guaranteed of going on Day 1 or 2 should bolt early for the draft, but Coleman may be an exception. First off, he's not assured -- at least at this juncture -- of going on Day 2. Perhaps more importantly, this year's draft class is loaded at running back. With Georgia's Todd Gurley, Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah currently ahead of Coleman on most boards, the junior might decide it best to head back to Bloomington for one more year and make a run at the 2016 first round.

Oregon senior C Hroniss Grasu reminds an AFC scout of Browns' Pro Bowl center Alex Mack, reports NFL.com.

"That's about the highest praise a center can receive," observed Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis. "Interesting, too, because Auburn's Reese Dismukes entered the season as the near unanimous top prospect at the position, although Grasu was certainly in the conversation." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote over the summer that Grasu "will be downgraded because of poor measurables," but perhaps the center can mitigate those concerns by continuing to play like an All-American.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah compared Clemson senior edge rusher to former first-round pick Jerry Hughes.

A couple of years ago this might have read like a criticism, but Hughes is now a very good player after landing in a scheme that fits his strengths. Beasley took criticism earlier in the season, mainly from those focused on production, but when watching the tape he is able to work through his man in pass protection and frequently faced a second blocker. Beasley could be more consistent, however, a rotation in the NFL will help that.

Washington redshirt senior edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha is leading the FBS in sacks with 12.5.

Only the half sack is assisted and all are a part of 15.5 tackles for loss. Kikaha has a number of knee injuries in his past, but we and many others have sung his praises since the beginning of the season. Production on its own does not offer a lot of merit, but how that production is achieved is most important. Kikaha offers disruption and production across multiple games.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said freshman QB Deshaun Watson will remain the starter as long as he's healthy.

"Yeah. Yeah. Deshaun’s the starter. Whenever he’s healthy, he’ll be back out there," Swinney said. "Guys don’t lose their jobs because they get hurt. Something unusual would have to happen for that to be the case." Watson, currently sidelined with a broken right hand, will return no later Nov. 15 against Georgia Tech. If he's healthy enough, Swinney will send out Watson, the nation's top-rated dual-threat QB in the 2014 class, on Nov. 6 versus Wake Forest. Cole Stoudt will continue to play until Watson's return.

Ohio State senior TE Jeff Heuerman reminds ESPN's Todd McShay of former Stanford standout Zach Ertz.

"Heuerman has an excellent blend of height and weight (6-5, 250) and top-end speed," McShay wrote. "He has work to do as a route-runner, but he can stretch the seam and come down with 50-50 balls. He does a good job as a blocker." The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Heuerman has only five catches for 82 yards this year after grabbing 26 receptions and 466 receiving yards last season. ESPN's Steve Muench wrote earlier this week that Heuerman "has the tools to be a more productive player at the professional level than he has been for Ohio State."
