South Carolina junior DE Jadeveon Clowney announced that he is committed to the Gamecocks and will play again this season.

Clowney finds himself in the unfortunate position of having to publicly address unfounded rumors. Generally, we have sympathy for people in that situation. Our grace stops when the person in question is acting so erratically that the unfounded rumors appear more logical than the actions that spurred them. To recap: Clowney (bone spurs in his foot and bruised ribs) unilaterally chose to sit out last weekend's contest against Kentucky when everybody agreed he could have played. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier could have averted all the heat that was about to come down on his star player if he had lied and said the school elected to hold out Clowney, but he elected not to do so. Clowney is now saying that he is questionable for this weekend's game against Arkansas. Clowney is coming across as simultaneously soft, dishonest and aloof. It isn't a good look, and it's one reason that he's no longer a lock to be the No. 1 pick.

South Carolina WR Shaq Roland will transfer to Prairie View A&M.

Roland left the Gamecocks prior to the school's bowl game, and many concluded he would enter the draft. Instead, Roland will play one more season of collegiate football at the FCS level. From what we can find, Prairie View A&M has not produced a drafted player since 1980.

Auburn co-OC Dameyune Craig says the team will focus on "the pass game" more in 2014 with junior QB Jeremy Johnson starting.

"That means the ball will be spread out a little bit more than it has in the past," Craig said. "I think the receivers will prosper from Jeremy Johnson's emergence as quarterback next year." Johnson started the opening game of the season last year in place of Nick Marshall, throwing for 858 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions in two seasons of backup duty. Johnson also sports a completion percentage over 70-percent.

Michigan senior QB Russell Bellomy will transfer this spring after graduation.

Bellomy only has 23 attempts on his career, completing four along with throwing four interceptions. He tore his ACL in the spring of 2013. Bellomy is from Texas.

"There's a real sense" the Tampa Bay Bucs have their sights set on selecting Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 1 pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This sounds like a big deal, but on Jan. 29 it is not. Just got back and read blurbs on Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles at this time last year. So much of the draft process has not taken place yet, for better or worse. Many evaluators still prefer FSU's Jameis Winston. We think both are great quarterback prospects.

Dan Quinn, the Falcons next HC, recruited Florida EDGE Dante Fowler Jr. while working with the Gators.

Obviously there is a lot of dot connecting that can be done here. The Falcons desperately need an edge rusher, they have the No. 8 pick, Quinn and Fowler have history... but really, the decision will come from Scott Pioli and Thomas Dimitroff. Fowler "was one that we thought would develop into a pass rusher," Quinn said. "His first year there, he played right away as a true freshmen." We think Fowler's best traits are his hand use, counter moves and ability to win on the outside or working back in.

FSU QB Jameis Winston received an Eli Manning comparison from NFL Media's Lance Zierlein.

Winston has received a number of comparisons, form Ben Roethlisberger to Byron Leftwich. In fact, Zierlein writes "his wind-up delivery and marginal mobility outside the pocket are reminiscent of Byron Leftwich, but his arm talent and issues with decision making are more in line with Eli Manning's." Quarterback comparisons are kind of unrealistic, since most successful quarterbacks in the NFL right now are quite different.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein tabbed USC DL Leonard Williams as a "Pro Bowl caliber player" and graded him as the No. 1 prospect in the 2015 class.

There is so much time left in the process, but Zierlein awarded Williams with a 7.4 grade, with Amari Cooper and Shane Ray receiving 7.0 grades. "It doesn't matter how raw he is because he's got freakish qualities that are rare for men his size," one NFC Director of College Scouting told Zierlein. "I think he has a chance to be as good as Kevin Williams."

Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon reminds NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt of St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason.

"[Gordon is] bigger and stronger, but he's got Mason's tremendous quickness," Brandt wrote. "He's an interesting player because up until this season he had started only eight games. This year he started all 13 games -- 14 if you count the bowl game -- running for 2,587 yards, the second-highest total ever, and 29 touchdowns. Gordon improved in two key areas last season: He became a much better pass catcher, posting 26 catches after posting 16 in his three seasons before, and a more reliable player in pass protection. I think Gordon has enough strength to carry the ball 20 times a game in the NFL, and he should have a lot more success as a rookie than Mason did." Former Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson compares MGIII to Jamaal Charles, and believes the Badger will be the first RB taken in the spring draft.
Jan 29 - 1:49 AM reports that sources have indicated UCLA QB Brett Hundley "will fully participate at the combine."

Hundley is the site's No. 3-rated quarterback. Many elite QB prospects in recent years have skipped the scouting combine, preferring to work out at their personal pro days. Hundley is making a good choice to participate, as he bungled an opportunity to play in the Senior Bowl and has serious competition for the No. 3 QB designation. He'll have a nice platform at the combine, as Marcus Mariota might not be able to participate due to a shoulder sprain.

Former Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson believes Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Melvin Gordon will be the first RB chosen in the draft, and compares him to Jamaal Charles.

"I think Melvin Gordon to me, is a guy who reminds me a lot of Jamaal Charles. So I think clearly he will be the No. 1 running back coming off the board for the simple fact that Todd Gurley is coming off of that injury," Tomlinson said on NFL Network Wednesday.'s Daniel Jeremiah ranks Gordon as the No. 10 prospect in the class, though he has Gordon going to the Cowboys at No. 27 in a mock draft. Tomlinson said MGIII wouldn't have been a lock to be the first RB taken had Todd Gurley not suffered his knee injury. "If it hadn't been for that injury, those guys would be neck and neck for the No. 1 running back coming off the board," Tomlinson said. "Todd Gurley, with the size he possesses, the athletic ability, the guy returns kicks -- are you kidding me? He's a phenomenal player. (If he returns healthy) he is going to be a steal."

Eastern Washington has granted senior QB Vernon Adams a release to transfer.

The 6-foot, 200-pounder is visiting Oregon this weekend, and the fit is almost too perfect. The Ducks need a QB to replace Marcus Mariota, and Adams is one of the FCS' best players. You might recall that he accounted for 491 yards of offense and seven touchdowns in a 59-52 loss to Washington this past season. Adams has thrown for 10,438 yards and 110 scores already in his three-season career. NFL Media analyst Charles Davis calls Adams "a master playmaker and a big-time leader," and colleague Bucky Brooks said that though "Adams lacks the ideal physical dimensions to pique the interest of NFL scouts, his production and effectiveness running (Eastern Washington's) high-powered offense will keep his name in the mix over the next few years." If he does indeed transfer, Adams shouldn't have a problem fending off sophomore Jeff Lockie for the starting gig.
