An AFC college scouting director told NFL.com that he wouldn't be comfortable using the No. 1 pick on Louisville junior QB Teddy Bridgewater.

"He's accurate, poised, smart, productive," the scout said. "The body type is the concern. You're gonna have to see him at the combine. He looks small and skinny to me. But he gets rid of the ball so quick and makes such good decisions, maybe you can live with that. If I had the first pick, I don't know that I'd see it, but if you're comfortable with his body, I can see where you would do it." Another AFC college director called Bridgewater, "a second-rounder. Shorter and smallish in size, but he has solid arm strength, he's a good athlete, solid accuracy. Not dynamic or a special talent, but he has NFL starter-caliber skills, and he's a good kid with all the intangibles." Wrote NFL.com's Albert Breer: "Louisville lists him at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds -- and if you know anything about how football coaches do measurements, you know it's a good bet he's at least a little shorter and lighter than that."

At the introductory press conference for new HC Willie Taggart, Oregon president Michael Schill told him to "go out and find a great defensive coordinator."

Current DC Brady Hoke can't be feeling too comfortable right about now. While Hoke still technically remains on staff following the Ducks' firing of Mark Helfrich, he might not be for long. After turning in a 2015 season the defensive equivalent of a derailed train under then-DC Don Pellum, Oregon turned to former Michigan HC Brady Hoke over the winter. Matters failed to improve much under Hoke's watch. In 2016, Oregon's ranked as the third-worst scoring defense in the country, surrendering 41.42 points on average. Only fellow wet paper towels Cal and Texas Tech were worse in that statistical category.

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham wants to make his transfer decision by Christmas.

Auburn is thought to be the front-runner for Stidham's services. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound gunslinger offered high praise for Tigers OC Rhett Lashlee, saying, "He's a great dude. I've gotten to know him a lot over this semester. Really, really solid dude." Another one of Stidham's dudes would be current Baylor OC Kendal Briles, who could throw an interesting wrench into matters. Said Stidham, who still talks with Briles frequently, " I'm still waiting to see what happens with him and where he might go and just take it into consideration."

Ole Miss fired co-OC Dan Werner.

"These are always very difficult decisions, but at this time, I believe it is best for our program to have a fresh approach," said HC Hugh Freeze in a released statement. Werner had served faithfully as Ole Miss co-offensive coordinator in each of Freeze's five seasons guiding the Rebel ship. In addition to their termination of Werner, Mississippi also opted to cut ties with recruiting assistant Barney Farrar. Farrar had been placed on administrative leave in November.

Navy sophomore QB Zach Abey will start against Army on Saturday.

It took quite the long, winding road to reach this point. Abey sat at third-string on the depth chart entering the 2016 season. Initial starter Tago Smith tore his ACL in the opener, though, ceding way to Will Worth. Worth went on to put in a phenomenal season before breaking his foot against Temple last Saturday. Enter the 6-foot-2, 218-pound Abey, now. "It's definitely a lot of pressure and a huge responsibility," he said of his first start. "Right now, all I can do is focus on the preparation and make sure my mind is right." In very limited action this year, Abey has rushed for 197 yards (7.6 YPC) and two touchdowns on 26 carries while completing 7-of-13 passes for 104 yards and an 0/2 TD/INT ratio.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Doug Roberson reports that Georgia State will hire South Carolina OL coach Shawn Elliott to fill their vacant head-coaching position.

Elliott will replace Trent Miles, who was fired in mid-November. He has been on staff with South Carolina since 2010 and even received a cup of head-coaching coffee last season after being tabbed as interim head coach following Steve Spurrier's decision to step down from the helm. Elliott will have a fair bit of a job ahead of him with Georgia State -- the Panthers finished the 2016 campaign holding a 3-9 record.

Navy senior SB Toneo Gulley has been ruled out for the year with a broken bone in his foot.

Incredibly, Gulley and starting QB Will Worth -- Navy's two best offensive players -- were both lost for the season to injury on the same play early in the second quarter of last weekend's American Athletic Conference championship game loss to Temple. "Losing two of our best players on the same play, in a championship game, the week before Army?" Gulley said. "You can’t ever imagine that. But resilience, fighting through, relying on the next guy up — that’s the story of our season." , Gulley's teammates are currently preparing for Saturday's epic date at M&T Bank Stadium, the site of this year’s annual Army-Navy game.

Florida sophomore RB Jordan Cronkite will transfer.

The Gators are losing Cronkite primarily because there were too many mouths to feed in the team's four-tailback rotation. The 5-foot-11, 204-pound Cronkrite seized the starting job during preseason camp, but an injury suffered during a mid-August scrimmage marked the beginning of the end of his time with the program. He missed several practices and ultimately tumbled down the depth chart. The former stud recruit had only 75 carries across two years at Florida, converting them into 302 yards and four touchdowns.

LSU WR Travin Dural accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Dural didn't enjoy much production in college, but the meager numbers were more of a function of LSU's formerly antiquated offense than anything he did or didn't do on the field. Dural boasts good size and a reported sub-4.4 40-yard dash. Because of that size/speed blend, he averaged 17.2 yards per catch during his Tiger career. Also because of that size/speed blend, the NFL is highly intrigued.

Alabama graduate QB Cooper Bateman will reportedly remain with the Tide through the College Football Playoff before transferring.

Bateman was the favorite to win the starting quarterback gig all offseason and into fall camp, but Jalen Hurts broke his heart by emerging as one of the nation's most exciting young signal-callers. Bateman will be the Tide's No. 2 quarterback in the Playoffs, assuming this report is true and he remains with the team for a few more weeks.

Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo announced that senior QB Will Worth (foot) is out for the season.

The senior quarterback finished with 1,196 yards and 25 touchdowns on the ground, and also topped the 1,000-yard mark passing. Slotback Toneo Gulley was injured on the same play as Worth (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) in the American Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday against Temple. "I came in here and (Gulley) had just gotten the bad news. I used the same X-Ray machine and I got bad news as well," Worth said. "It was a tough time in there." Navy plays archrival Army on Saturday before traveling to the Armed Forces Bowl to close out the season on Dec. 23. Former No. 3 quarterback Zach Abey will close out the year as starter.

Former Texas and Arizona State position coach Jay Norvell will be the new head coach at Nevada, according to Football Scoop.

Norvell departed Texas prior to the season and joined Arizona State for one year. This is Norvell's first head coaching job at any level, but he has a wealth of offensive experience at big time college programs and in the NFL. Brian Polian went 23-27 in four seasons at Nevada.
