One NFL personnel executive would be "scared to death" to take South Carolina junior DE Jadeveon Clowney with a top-10 pick.

"The source, who asked not to be named, said Clowney was one of the best collegiate talents he'd ever seen," Yahoo Sports' Eric Adelson writes. "Yet he has 'major concerns' about consistency." We still think only a small portion of NFL evaluators have doubts about Clowney, but they certainly will do their homework on the rare talent. He is still impacting games at a high level despite a dip in production.

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.

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.

Oregon senior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (knee) has a $3 million loss of value insurance policy.

Ekpre-Olomu suffered what the media is calling a "serious knee injury" during Tuesday's practice, though the specific nature of that injury has not yet been disclosed. We do know, however, that it has ruled him out for the rest of the season. The insurance policy was paid for by the University of Oregon. If the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Ekpre-Olomu slips in the draft due to the injury, he will start collecting money at the beginning of Round 2. If he falls past the beginning of Round 3, he would receive all $3 million.

An SEC offensive coach compared Missouri redshirt junior edge rusher Shane Ray to Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs.

"When you study Ray on tape, you see a lot of the same qualities Suggs had as a pass rusher coming out of college," the coach told NFL.com. "He can really turn that corner sharply." It's been reported that Ray is likely to declare early for the draft. When he does, he'll likely hear his name called in the top 10. "While Missouri has been the home of 'try hard' defensive ends like Kony Ealy, Michael Sam and now Markus Golden, Ray can win with explosiveness and athleticism more frequently than the aforementioned ends," wrote NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein. "Evaluators love Ray's play demeanor and his ability to win around the corner or with inside moves while still being able to handle himself against the run."
