Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel completed 28 of 38 attempts for 454 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions in a 45-41 loss to Auburn.

Manziel added 48 rushing yards and a score on the ground, but also injured his right arm on a run. It was tough to tell if the injury occurred to his elbow or shoulder, but Manziel was sidelined for a bit before returning. The last drive showed some deficiencies in the pocket, in terms of dropping his eyes and sacking himself, but Manziel has enough arm to win from the pocket and will make his mark on improvisational skill.

49ers beat writer Matt Barrows believes a RB complement to Carlos Hyde is a top five need for the team.

Barrows points out Kyle Shanahan's running backs in 2016 combined for 93 catches and 946 receiving yards. This might not be Carlos Hyde's strength, but even if he has improved the team will want a dynamic piece added tot he roster. Barrows suggests Christian McAffrey, Curtis Samuel and Alvin Kamara as options. The 49ers need to bring in a number of skill position players.

UNC Charlotte DT Larry Ogunjobi is "probably a second round pick," according to NFL Network's Mike Mayock.

We really like Ogunjobi, but the second round is quite rich. Ogunjobi is a 6-foot-3, 304-pound defensive tackle who possesses flexibility from the interior to bend and get his hips around offensive linemen. This class lacks last year's interior defensive line talent, so perhaps that is what pushes Ogunjobi up the board. Again, we like his talent, but pre-Senior Bowl projections stated fourth round expectations at the earliest. But if a team wants him, the price will be an earlier selection.

The MMQB's Emily Kaplan believes Miami's Brad Kaaya is now viewed as a developmental QB.

One NFL scout believes the expectations were too high for Kaaya entering the season, but he "still has a chance to be very good." Numerous evaluators have discussed Kaaya's tendency to be frenetic and crumble when facing pressure, a situation where successful passers stay composed. Kaaya could be a second to a fourth round pick.

Pat Kirwan spoke to an NFL QB coach who believes Texas Tech QB Pat Mahomes has the best "arm talent" since Brett Favre.

Kirwan calls Mahomes "Raw and not ready but worth it!" In today's NFL, we aren't sure what this means. Quarterbacks drafted in the top two rounds rarely get to sit and wait until they are "ready," and even fewer successful ones were considered raw. The likeliest scenario is a team selecting Mahomes with a top 50 pick with an offensive coordinator willing to shift things around to fit the quarterback's strengths and weaknesses. That happens less often than we all think. Mahomes has a strong chance of being a first-round pick.

Northwestern senior RB Justin Jackson didn't submit paperwork to the NFL's college advisory committee.

Jackson wasn't at all interested in bolting for the NFL after capping off his third straight 1,000-yard campaign. "I felt like it was in my best interests to come back and fine-tune my skills," he said. "Plus, I've put so much work into this whole school thing, I figured I might as well finish it out." Only eight players in FBS history have ever recorded four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson sits at 4,485 career rushing yards heading into his last season. He hopes he won't get dinged for his heavy workload when he enters the NFL next season. "I have no idea how NFL scouts think," he said. "But hopefully they'll look at my production and the fact that I haven’t missed any games, and I hope that can be a plus."

Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly will not travel to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine, according to his agent Vance McAllister.

Kelly's agents McAllister and Duray Oubre previously considered sending Kelly to the Combine, but have decided against it. McAllister says his appeal letter to the NFL has gone unanswered. The NFL initially included Kelly on its list of Combine invitees, only to reverse course in a second draft. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told Kelly's agents that their client fell within the letter of the NFL's rule that bars players from attending "if a background check reveals a conviction of a felony or misdemeanor involving violence or use of a weapon, domestic violence, sexual offense and/or sexual assault." Kelly was charged with multiple misdemeanors following an altercation with officers in 2015. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Kelly hopes to work out for scouts at Ole Miss' Pro Day in Oxford on April 3.

Duke redshirt senior QB Thomas Sirk (Achilles) will transfer as a graduate.

Sirk suffered three torn Achilles tendons while at Duke. The most recent, suffered to his left one last summer, earned Sirk a sixth season of eligibility. The issue with that is that it also allowed Daniel Jones to steal his starting quarterback job last season. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Sirk passed for 2,625 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2015.

NFL Media's Mike Mayock compares Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer to Philip Rivers.

"I think he has the most upside (in the QB draft class), the highest ceiling. But he is 12-11 as a starter at Notre Dame. He played a lot of bad football with the game on the line in the fourth quarter this year. That is not acceptable," Mayock said. "But he is 6-foot-5, 235. He has that kind of prototypical franchise quarterback look, a Philip Rivers type ... if he gets everything right." Like Rivers, Kizer could also use some time to marinate on the bench while developing. Rivers threw only 30 passes in his first two NFL seasons. Kizer will be at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this week.
