Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes UCLA's Anthony Barr has the edge over BYU's Kyle Van Noy at the pass rushing OLB position, and added it wasn't close.

"Barr is still a bit raw (with) hands and doesn't have ideal bend," Weidl tweeted. "But he's long, explosive (and) closes in a hurry. Nightmare to handle on a twist." Barr, a former H-back, has spent one season on the defensive side of the ball and has immediately impressed. Weidl admitted to being "a bit underwhelmed by Van Noy" and added he lacked size and length and point of attack skills was exposed versus Notre Dame. "Average athletic/explosiveness. Didn't see a dynamic player"

One AFC Personnel Executive believes Oregon QB Marcus Mariota and FSU QB Jameis Winston are better than Blake Bortles.

We won't include the comments about the two comparing (or contrasting) to Andrew Luck as prospects, because any comparison is pointless. "They're both better than [Ryan] Tannehill when he came out. But neither of them is a slam dunk," the executive said. Rotoworld's Josh Norris places Mariota as the top quarterback in this class due to his eye level and positive pocket movement while working off his first read. The executive also notes "after the first two (quarterbacks), you're throwing darts."

Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty is a "tale of two years," according to one NFL executive.

"He was very accurate last year, but he's not so accurate this year," the executive added. "His fundamentals have come unraveled. His lower-body position [is out of whack]." We would challenge the executive a bit, since Petty has never been an accurate downfield passer despite what highlights might show. Some call Marcus Mariota a "system quarterback." This label applies to Petty much more than Mariota. The executive did say Petty has looked better during the end of the season.

UAB junior LB Jake Ganus will transfer to Georgia.

Ganus has one more season of eligibility. As you know, UAB's players are free to transfer with no restrictions after the football program was eliminated. Ganus is basically a three year starter. At this time, most of Gergia's talented young players are returning for another season.

West Virginia redshirt senior Clint Trickett returned to practice after passing concussion protocol.

Trickett has not played since being knocked out against Kansas State on Nov. 20. The Mountaineers face Texas A&M in their bowl game, and it will be Trckett's and receiver Kevin White's final collegiate game.

Texas A&M and OL coach B.J. Anderson have parted ways.

On the surface it seems like a surprising move, since Anderson coached the likes of Jake Matthews, Luke Joeckel and Cedric Ogbuehi. However, the offensive line regressed a bit this season and there have been some reports of Ogbuehi receiving a free pass in practice. A frenetic pocket mover in Johnny Manziel did not favors for his offensive line in the past, placing extra pressure on the front five to mirror for long periods of time. Still, talent remains for the present and future along the Aggies' offensive line.

The number of non-seniors requesting evaluations from the NFL Draft Advisory Board dropped from 214 in 2013 to 147 this year.

As the Senior Bowl's Patrick Woo points out, each team is now limited to five names who can request grades, which likely factors in to the large drop in numbers. Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin was told by one source that the record for non-seniors declaring for the draft (107) might be broken this year, something the new advisory board grading system was hoping to prevent. The new figures make that seem unlikely. of the 107 who declared last year, 45 went undrafted.

Arizona State HC Todd Graham said redshirt junior WR Jaelen Strong hasn't made up his mind about the NFL draft.

"Give guys a chance to make a decision. No one's made a decision to do anything. Everybody's assuming somebody's going to go," Graham said. Sorry, Coach, but we also think Strong is headed to the NFL. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder has hauled in 75 receptions for 1,062 yards and ten touchdowns this season. ESPN's Mel Kiper recently wrote that Strong "is a second-round pick who could become a late first if he runs well."

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III was "the top cornerback in college football this year, and shares similar qualities to Darrelle Revis," wrote Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

Hargreaves ranks No. 3 on the pair's non-draft eligible rankings. "He is a smooth athlete who possesses adequate size and shows great balance to mirror receivers when locked up in man coverage," they wrote. "The sophomore also has outstanding instincts and anticipation that allow him to be a playmaker (24 pass breakups and 5 interceptions in his career). While he can continue to clean up his technique as a tackler, he is willing and aggressive in run support." NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah compares Hargreaves to Joe Haden. Mr. Hargreaves will be mighty popular come this time next year.

Michigan State junior CB Trae Waynes is expected to declare for the draft and has met with potential agents, according to Yahoo! Sports.

"He is collectively projected by draftniks as either a first-round or early second-round pick," wrote Rand Getlin. The 6-foot-1, 178-pounder, who is able to jockey with receivers down the field in a way that shorter corners are sometimes physically unable to do, is rated as one of the class' best cover men. Michigan State plays Baylor on Jan. 1 in the Cotton Bowl. The deadline for underclassmen to declare early is Jan. 15.

Baylor redshirt junior edge rusher Shawn Oakman is "strongly considering entering the 2015 NFL draft," according to Yahoo! Sports.

"Oakman, a redshirt junior, hasn’t made any official declarations about his intentions, but he has begun conducting interviews with agents and other professional service providers," wrote the website's Rand Getlin. The 6-foot-8, 275-pound Oakman leads Baylor with 10 sacks. He's also collected 18.5 tackles for loss in 12 games. Oakman is a controversial prospect, but we'd be rather surprised if an organization didn't pull the trigger on his limitless upside at some point in Round 1.
Dec 18 - 12:17 PM

The Gainesville Sun reports that Florida senior T D.J. Humphries will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Humphries hasn't publicly confirmed this report, though at least one teammate has tweeted confirmation, and we know the big tackle had sought feedback from the NFL’s draft advisory board. Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder played in only 17 of 24 games the past two seasons.
