Chip Brown of Orangebloods is reporting West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck will be named Texas' next AD in mid-November.

"Luck's interview with the committee could come as early as this week," Brown writes. "If all goes as expected, a contract could be finalized Nov. 13 or 14, when Texas regents are already scheduled to meet." He will be taking over for DeLoss Dodds, who announced his upcoming retirement a few weeks ago.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah thinks Ohio State CB Bradley Roby should be a top 20 pick.

Roby (5-foot-11, 194 pounds) "had a couple of rough games" as a junior in 2013, according to Jeremiah, but is "as talented as any cornerback in this draft." Unfortunately for Roby, his worst day as a football player came in a big moment, and it has been difficult for some to forget. The Badgers' Jared Abbrederis famously slapped down 10 catches for 207 yards and a TD on Roby this past season, a performance so ugly that the Buckeyes' corner began grabbing and holding and receiving safety help. Roby admitted at the time that he "was kind of slacking," and his performance elevated from there on out.

Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage "has a very real shot of landing in the top of the second round," says NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah.

"When you just look at the number of visits he's had and number of workouts he's had, that's hard data you can tell that there's buzz and some excitement building on him," said Jeremiah. Savage (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) threw for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in relative obscurity for Pitt last year. Scouts discovered a bazooka arm when breaking down tape, however, and Savage has taken on helium since the draft process began. "The arm strength is easy to notice. He's got a big arm and you see him make some drive throws you don't see other guys make," Jeremiah said. "When I watched him early in the year, he took so many sacks and I kind of worried about his ability to navigate in the pocket and get out of trouble."

ESPN's Jon Gruden compares Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel to Brett Favre.

"Johnny has a lot of magic to him," Gruden said. "There's not a more exciting college football player I've seen in the last few years." Gruden, who taped a segment with the Aggies' star for his "Gruden's QB Camp" series, has also compared Manziel to Hall of Famer Steve Young. "I had more fun with Manziel than I did most guys," Gruden said. "I'd love to have him. It takes courage to pull the ball down and reverse field and do some of the crazy things that Favre and Manziel do. There's going to be consequences when sometimes it doesn't work out. But it takes a tremendous amount of guts and courage to go make a play when there's nothing there instead of throwing the ball away."

Clemson OL Brandon Thomas will likely drop to the fourth- or fifth-round after his ACL injury, according to insider Tony Pauline.

Thomas injured his knee while working out for the Saints, and is expected to have surgery in the immediate future. he will almost certainly have to redshirt next season for whichever club takes him. We consider Thomas a top 50 talent, as he displays an athletic lower half and powerful punch.

Utah FB Karl Williams has visited the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Fullbacks are a rare breed in the NFL these days, especially ones with minimal receiving experience. Williams caught 19 passes for 115 yards during his three years of playing time. He did record a 4.50 forty at the school's pro day, however. The Colts only have five draft picks, so maybe they are evaluating undrafted free agents even more than usual.

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater is scheduled to visit the Texans next week, along with a workout for the Jaguars, according to Tania Ganguli.

Bridgewater has already visited the Jaguars once, so the team is likely getting to know him on a personal level. The first issue teams are seemingly propping up is Teddy's lean frame, but if they can get past that the next question is his "quiet personality." We think he is deserving to be the top quarterback off the board, but Bridgewater has a chance of being an early second-round pick.

Boise State edge rusher Demarcus Lawrence has visited, or is scheduled to travel to, the Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings, Steelers, 49ers, Jets and Saints.

Lawrence is a legitimate dark horse for the end of the first-round, and any of these teams (other than the Redskins or Vikings) could trade up to the early part of the second day to nab him. He did not test overly well in terms of lateral athleticism, but Lawrence shows more movement skills on tape than he did at the Combine.

Washington State S Deone Bucannon has visited the Patriots, Colts and Ravens this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

Bucannon also has the Eagles, Jets and Giants scheduled before the visit deadline. The aggressive safety has drawn plenty of interest as of late. He might lack lateral agility, but Bucannon takes tight lines and closes in a hurry. He could wind up in the second-round.

Nebraska G Spencer Long has visits with the Dolphins, Falcons, Chargers and Eagles, according to insider Adam Caplan.

Long suffered a knee injury in October, so the visits could be medical related. Teams will be searching for third day offensive linemen that are worth investing in, and Long is a name to keep in mind.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins announced that his fractured foot has completely healed.

The 6-foot-5 1/2, 262-pound prospect, who went under the knife to repair a stress fracture in late February, is two weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery. Seferian-Jenkins won't crack Round 1, but this injury won't drop him out of Day 2. The reigning Mackey Award winner doesn't plan to work out prior to the draft on May 8-10.

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater dropped to the Texans at the top of the second round (No. 33 overall) in Mel Kiper's mock draft published on Thursday.

"Let me be clear: This is the top-rated quarterback on my Big Board, a player I have rated higher than Bortles, Manziel or Carr," Kiper wrote. "But my reading of the tea leaves in speaking with many evaluators around the league is that Bridgewater could drop if he slides past a couple of points early on. If I could project trades, I'd have someone taking him later in Round 1 having moved up. Obviously, he's a steal at this point." The saga of Teddy B has been fascinating to watch as the process drags into its final stretch. The Cardinals' star could absolutely be a top 10 pick in May, just as everyone thought during the season. But he could also just as easily drop into the very end of Round 1, or even into the second stanza. No elite prospect has a range of draft outcomes as wide as that of Bridgewater.
