Scouts want to see USC junior WR Nelson Agholor "be more controlled and reliable with his routes," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Agholor was limited to only four catches and 35 yards against the Bruins last season so he'll be looking for revenge this year and scouts want to see him be more controlled and reliable with his routes, field awareness and process finishing catches," Brugler writes. The USC prospect had the most productive game of his career versus Cal, hauling in 16 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns last Saturday.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes UCLA redshirt senior DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa "pass rush arsenal is still a work-in-progress, but his active hands are always working and his versatility to rush or play the run will be attractive."

"On some passing downs, Odighizuwa does stand up as an edge rusher and has a chance to show off his skill-set as a pass rush threat, using his natural bend and athleticism to beat blockers in space. His pass rush arsenal is still a work-in-progress, but his active hands are always working and his versatility to rush or play the run will be attractive," Brugler wrote. Odighizuwa missed the 2013 after undergoing two surgeries on his left hip, but he offers hand use and straight-line speed and power off the edge. Brugler notes that even though Odighizuwa only has three sacks this season, his "tape tells a different story."

Scouts still want to see UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "operate better from the pocket, especially under duress," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He has done a better job tucking and picking up yards with his legs when the pocket breaks down, but in order for him to be successful in the NFL, scouts still want to see him operate better from the pocket, especially under duress," Brugler writes. The UCLA prospect came into this season as one the top quarterback prospects in the country, but his junior season has been quite inconsistent. Brugler believes Hundley's "lack of pocket presence and struggles with pressure are still a major concern."

ESPN's Kevin Weidl notes that Duke redshirt senior OG Laken Tomlinson is an "ideal fit for a power run game."

"Duke OG Laken Tomlinson has limitations but shows excellent inline power and will finish. Ideal fit for power run game," Weidl tweeted. The Blue Devil's 6-foot-3, 330-pound guard is the anchor of their offensive line, which has given up the fewest sacks in the country by percentage. Tomlinson earned second-team All-ACC honors as a junior and is a three-time All-ACC Academic selection. Tomlinson has potential to be a late-round prospect.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that USC junior DL Leonard Williams' skill-set is "exactly what NFL teams covet in the trenches."

"The stats for the "Big Cat" aren't striking, but he has also toughed through an ankle injury most of the season and his flexibility, movement skills and point of attack strength are exactly what NFL teams covet in the trenches," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Williams has a team-best 6.0 sacks on the season, but has been battling through an ankle injury all year. Brugler adds that, Williams "is the most likely player to hear his name called first at the podium by the commissioner."

Orange County Register's Michael Lev notes that USC coach Steve Sarkisian said redshirt senior DB Josh Shaw "will have a role" against UCLA this weekend.

"USC coach Steve Sarkisian said CB Josh Shaw will have a role against UCLA. The extent of that role remains to be seen," Lev tweeted. The USC prospect has not played a single down for the Trojans this season, after he was caught lying to team officials about an incident that resulted in him injuring his ankles.

Ole Miss senior CB Senquez Golson named a Nagurski Trophy Finalist.

Bronko Nagurski Trophy honors the national defensive player of the year in college football. The 5-foot-9, 176-pound Golson is ranked second nationally and first in the SEC with nine interceptions this year. Golson also has 29 tackles, two for a loss, with seven pass breakups and two quarterback hurries on his 2014 resume.

Ohio State sophomore DE Joey Bosa has been named one of four finalists for the Lombardi Award, given annually to the nation's top lineman or linebacker.

The 6-foot-5, 278-pound leads the Big Ten in sacks with 11.5 on the year, and ranks fifth nationally. The Buckeyes' prospect needs 2.5 sacks to tie Vernon Gholston’s school record of 14. The sophomore standout won't be draft eligible until after the 2015 campaign.

Draft insider Tony Pauline has heard Cal junior WR Bryce Treggs is leaning towards entering the 2015 NFL Draft.

Pauline adds some have even suggested he is gone. "Scouts stamp Treggs as a late rounder," Pauline tweeted. We do not know much about Treggs other than he started opposite Keenan Allen as a freshman and witnessed a major jump in his receiving yards and catches last season. He is listed at 5'11/185 pounds.

FSU junior DT Eddie Goldman ranks No. 5 overall on the MMQB writer Andy Staples' big board.

"The Seminoles can thank Goldman for the fact that they’re still undefeated," Staples opens, which is a massive statement but used in the context of the Clemson game. FSU's defense has a ton of individual talent, but miscues and offensive turnovers have not helped. Goldman and Mario Edwards Jr., who ranks at No. 11 for Staples, form a nice duo on the Noles' front four.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes UCLA LB Eric Kendricks is the best prospect not receiving enough praise from evaluators.

"One of the most impressive defensive performers I have watched regardless of position," Norris writes. "We know Kendricks can recognize running lanes and read the triangle, but where he can be most beneficial to a team early on is in coverage. Turn on the Virginia game to find out." In fact, Norris ranks Kendricks as the top off line of scrimmage linebacker in this class.

South Carolina junior RB Mike Davis offered insight in close friend and Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley's upcoming NFL decision.

"I would assume that Todd is leaving," Davis said, adding he talks with Gurley every day. Obviously this is not earth shattering information, but it adds to the notion Gurley has played his final game at Georgia. The running back is still expected to complete his punishments handed down by the NCAA after being suspended for accepting money for autographs.

Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker was listed at No. 9 overall on Todd McShay's latest big board.

"He has an above-average size-speed combo with the ability to run under the deep ball and make defenders miss and pick up extra yards after the catch," McShay says. "He has good separation skills and can pluck the ball out of the air and make over-the-shoulder catches." Parker recently returned from a broken foot and has picked up right where he left off. The Cardinals face Notre Dame on Saturday. For McShay Parker checks in after Amari Cooper (No. 5), but before Kevin White (No. 14), Devin Funchess (No. 19), Jaelen Strong (No. 26) and Ty Montgomery (No. 29).

Maryland senior WR Deon Long has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine game.

Some might argue Long has outplayed Stefon Diggs this season despite what the box scores say. Long is a lean receiver who has seen time on the outside in Maryland's offense.
Nov 20 - 11:00 AM

Arizona redshirt senior WR Austin Hill will attend the East West Shrine game.

Hill will not come close to matching his production from last season (81/1,364/11 TDs) since he has posted 35 catches for 480 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games this year. Some heavily praised the 6'3/210 pound receiver prior to the season.
