Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer admitted junior QB Braxton Miller will be a game-time decision against Cal.

Meyer did say Miller had a "great workout" in the pool and is expected to throw more Thursday afternoon. At least the Buckeyes have a nice backup in Kenny Guiton, who offers some similar skills to Miller. The team wouldn't have to considerably change their offense if Guiton gets the call.

Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams hauled in eight receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in a 20-14 win versus Kansas State on Thursday.

The JUCO transfer already has 21 catches for 324 yards and two touchdowns through three games. Williams, who goes 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, has impressed us with two traits key to next level projection: Speed and ability to win in contested situations thanks to outstanding hops. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote last week that Williams "could be the big juco breakout newcomer of the season," adding that the newcomer "jumped on my radar last season when he simply destroyed junior college competition for a second straight year at Mississippi Gulf Coast." Back in December, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters he expected to throw more in 2014 thanks to the signing of Williams. He'll continue to do just that.

Texas State redshirt senior LB Mike Orakpo will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL and MCL.

Former Longhorn Brian Orakpo's little brother suffered the injury in last weekend’s loss to Navy. TSU head coach Dennis Franchione described it as "not a pretty sight to see." Michael Orakpo's collegiate career is now over, as he won't be eligible to apply for a sixth season of eligibility. It'll be interesting to see if he garners interest in the draft, as Orakpo is an underperforming freak of an athlete. At 230-plus pounds, he benches 565 pounds, has a vertical of 41.5 inches, and runs a low 4.5 in the 40-yard dash.

Ohio State junior DE Noah Spence is still practicing with the team despite his indefinite suspension.

"Yeah, he actually practiced today," Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. "He's doing things to get healthy, but he's also -- you know, we're supporting him." Spence was suspended for the school's bowl game as well as the first two games of 2014 after testing positive for ecstasy back in January. He was set to return last weekend but failed another drug test, leading to a suspension of indeterminate length. ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg recently reported that it's a "long shot" Spence will be cleared to return. "You know, the only comment I'll make on the whole situation is that it's a tough deal for Noah and his family and we're going to support him the best we can throughout the situation," co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash said Saturday. "If he gets an opportunity to play football again one day, great. But we're here to help him receive the help that he needs."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler spoke with multiple scouts who are more concerned with Jameis Winston's "issues" than Johnny Manziel's.

Brugler agrees with this statement, but adds "I don't like comparing off-field issues among prospects because each is so uniquely diff. They're lumped into similar categories and they shouldn't" be. There is SO much time remaining in the draft process, so it is far too early to determine where Winston might be selected.

Texas Tech DC Matt Wallerstedt has been fired, with OLBS coach Mike Smith taking his position.

Smith had always been listed as the co-defensive coordinator, but the role is now fully his. Fox Sports' David Ubben notes Smith will become the sixth different defensive coordinator in the last seven years. The Red Raiders allowed 35 points to Central Arkansas, 26 to UTEP and 49 to Arkansas.

ESPN's Mel Kiper admitted to initially overstating Washington senior DT Danny Shelton's "ability to move and get up the field."

Rotoworld's Josh Norris has been persistent that Shelton's six sacks this season are an aberration, and it seems like Kiper agrees once watching the film. Shelton ranks as Kiper's No. 22 overall prospect.

One NFL scout texted Yahoo Sports' Dan Wetzel that FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston "keeps filling up the 'recurring stupidity' column."

Winston will face similar attention to what we saw surround Johnny Manziel last year. Their "off-field issues," which will continue to be a buzz word, are different, but that does not mean you will not see them mentioned or compared. There could be an argument to be made that plenty of over-correction is occurring in Jameis' case, however, some teams really will factor in these actions more than others.

ESPN's Mel Kiper has dropped FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston to No. 25 overall on his big board.

Winston started the year as the top player on Kiper's big board. "At a time when NFL teams are going to be more sensitive than they ever have been about the off-field actions of their players -- and rightfully so -- Winston has reached a point with these issues where my sense is that a number of teams would have pulled him off the board if the draft were held tomorrow," Kiper writes. "It's that simple." The evaluator does believe Winston has time to "prove doubters wrong," however.

Former Ole Miss HC and USC interim coach Ed Orgeron turned down the Nicholls State job.

Nicholls State athletic director Rob Bernardi confirmed to CoachingSearch.com that he talked to Orgeron about taking over after Charlie Stubbs resigned as coach on the heels of an 0-3 start. Orgeron declined, citing a "commitment he made to his wife and family for this season," according to CoachingSearch.com. Orgeron's home in Mandeville, La., is very close to the Nicholls State campus. You'll hear his name connected to head coaching jobs this winter; there aren't many better recruiters in the business.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis write that they are "hearing a lot of Larry Fitzgerald comparisons" for West Virginia senior WR Kevin White.

"His build at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds is similar to Fitzgerald's," wrote the trio. "An NFL personnel director said he's not willing to go as far as a Fitzgerald comparison for White, but he didn't knock down the comparison completely, saying he sees the reason for it." White ranks second in the FBS with 460 receiving yards and is one of only three players with 30-plus catches. "White is establishing himself as one of the top wide receivers in the country, and we think he's an absolute beast," NFL.com's draft team added. "He's playing with a lot of confidence right now, and he should be -- he's a big-body guy who can run and has excellent hands."

An AFC personnel executive compared Florida State senior WR Rashad Greene to Antonio Brown.

"I know Rashad Greene isn't the biggest guy, but he's an outstanding player," said the executive. "He reminds me a lot of Antonio Brown. He is so quick and has very strong hands." With scouts already calling Kelvin Benjamin a draft steal, Greene will not fly under the draft radar. "While Benjamin received most of the attention last year for the Seminoles, Green actually had more receptions (76) and yards (1,128), and while most people remember Benjamin for his winning catch in the BCS title game, it was Greene who led FSU with nine receptions for 147 yards in that contest," noted NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis. "He is considered the top senior receiver in the country and a case could be made for him being the best overall."
