National Football Post's Russ Lande writes Florida DT Sharrif Floyd is a "scheme tweener".

"Floyd is a bit of a "scheme tweener" in that he has the body type of a one gap defensive tackle, but is often most effective playing as a two gap defender," Lande writes. "However, his ability to be as effective as a two gap defensive tackle in the NFL is a concern because of his tendency to lose leverage combined with his lack of ideal bulk/weight and arm length." We see Floyd's best fit as a 1-gap defender, shooting gaps and wreaking havoc in the backfield.

Oregon junior DL DeForest Buckner is a "near-lock" to return to school next season, according to a source close to Rand Getlin.

This is great news for any Oregon fan. Buckner put together some of the best flashes of any defensive prospect in this class and has the versatility to play in a variety of alignments. Fellow defensive prospect Arik Armstead is almost certainly leaving for the NFL, so Buckner could be the focus up front next season for the Ducks.

FSU freshman RB Dalvin Cook is part of an active aggravated assault investigation as a result of an event that took place in July of 2014.

Cook has been identified as an associate of two men involved in the alleged assault who reportedly waved a firearm at the victim (Cook did not). Strictly speaking about on-field production, Cook has been a difference maker for the Seminoles this season and has earned more touches in the last two months because of it. He is able to create yards on his own, something FSU lacked earlier this season. FSU plays Oregon on Jan. 1.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl considers Ole Miss senior Senquez Golson a "solid sub-package nickel type."

Weidl mixes negatives with positives, which is what evaluations should be. Weidl brings up Golson's sub-5'10" height multiple times, specifically against Auburn, but "he generally plays bigger than measurables indicate." Then Golson's eyes and instincts are praised which "allow him to play fast." The corner class will likely be considered one of the weaker position groups at the top, but Golson should be mentioned near the top of the list.

"It is a privilege to coach the young men in our program. It is truly a family." Fisher, who is 58-10 since replacing Bobby Bowden before the 2010 season, has sent a school-record 18 players into the NFL draft over the last two years.

Marshall senior QB Rakeem Cato completed 25-of-37 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns in Tuesday's 52-23 victory versus Northern Illinois in the Boca Raton Bowl.

He also ran for 25 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. Cato had the Thundering Herd offense humming in his last collegiate game, hitting open receivers (specifically Tommy Shuler) and avoiding mistakes (Marshall had zero turnovers). Cato threw for 3,901 yards and a 40/13 TD/INT ratio on a 59-percent completion percentage in 2014. The 6-foot, 188-pounder has been one of the nation's elite playmakers over the past few seasons, but he'll have to enter the NFL as either a late Day 3 pick or a priority UDFA.
