Arizona State redshirt junior WR Jaelen Strong caught seven passes for 103 yards in the school's 36-31 win over Duke.

It was Strong's final collegiate performance, and some believe he is due for a top 50 selection. Strong's name is apt, as one of his bets traits is winning in contested situations. The Combine will also be a meaningful event for Strong's evaluation.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel suffered an apparent head injury and will miss the remainder of the game against Virginia Tech.

Prior to leaving, Kiel completed 14 of 26 attempts for 244 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, barely missing a few other gains. Kiel took a sack and his head hit the turf hard, and he will almost certainly not return. Cincy is already without Munchie Legaux, so senior Michael Colosimo will finish this game. Kiel has been injured on multiple occasions this season.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel is exploring a possible graduate transfer to Duke, according to Laura Keeley.

Driskel is considering multiple schools, so it is not as if Duke is the only option. He would be able to play immediately. After two poor season, Driskel has lost more and more playing time and most recently was overtaken by Treon Harris. Driskel's previous competition, Jacoby Brissett, transferred to NC State a few offseasons ago. Duke's current starter, Anthony Boone, is set to graduate.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly told reporters he has still not determined who will start at QB for the school's bowl game against LSU.

"Both are getting quality reps. I probably have to make it here in the next 24 hours," Kelly explained. "They’re both going to play, and I’m just going to have to just get a feel for it and the flow of the game." Notre Dame faces the Tigers on tuesday, Dec. 30. Everett Golson was the school's starter all season long, but Kelly frequently commented on the number of turnovers Golson contributed to and inserted Malik Zaire in the blowout loss to USC.

Rutgers senior QB Gary Nova completed 9 of 20 attempts for 184 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 40-21 win over UNC.

Nova added another 30 rushing yards. We doubt Nova gets a look in the NFL, but this was a nice final performance to end his 12-year college career on.

UCF sophomore QB Justin Holman completed 23 of 53 attempts for 291 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 34-27 loss to UCF.

Holman is a name worth paying attention to next season, as he displays great pocket movement under pressure and is not afraid to get rid of the ball under duress. He did not enter the year as the starter, but Holman quickly showed he was UCF's top quarterback.

Minnesota redshirt sophomore TE Maxx Williams will declare for the NFL draft, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.

"Barring an injury in the Citrus Bowl vs. Missouri, an official announcement is expected soon thereafter," Wolfson writes, adding Williams and his family are already in talks with agents. Tight end might be the least talented position in the 2015 class, and Wolfson notes the "expectation is that Williams can go as high as the late first or second round." The latter end of the expectation might be his actual ceiling.

NC State redshirt junior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 15 of 26 attempts for 262 yards and one touchdown in the school's 34-27 win over UCF.

Brissett added another 31 rushing yards, and one 11 yard run showcased the quarterback's ability to manage the pocket and pick up yards with his feet. With that said, Brissett can definitely improve in terms of timing his targets to make the most of windows and placement to lead receivers to yards after the catch. Brissett does have another offseason before testing NFL waters after next season.

Louisiana Tech senior DE Houston Bates dominated his former team in Friday's 35-18 Heart of Dallas Bowl victory over Illinois, registering 4.5 sacks.

He finished with 5.5 tackles for loss and was named the game's MVP in his last collegiate game. Bates began his career with the Illini and graduated from the school earlier this year. He wanted to finish his career closer to home, so transferred to LTU in May. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is a bit of a DE/OLB tweener, so scouts will have to ascertain where he best fits in the NFL.

Louisiana Tech junior RB Kenneth Dixon rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in Friday's 35-18 Heart of Dallas Bowl victory over Illinois.

He also ran up 79 receiving yards and a touchdown on four receptions. Dixon tallied 1,194 rushing yards on 6.0 yards per carry in 2012 and 917 yards on 6.1 YPC last year while struggling with injuries. This season, he finished with 1,299 rushing yards and 22 ground scores. Dixon will be one of the nation's best returning runners in 2015. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in July that Dixon "runs physical and balanced with the ability in pass protection that will impress NFL scouts."

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft, confirmed HC Mark Richt.

Even with a torn ACL, we still rank Gurley as the No. 1 RB in the class. He's one of the most physically gifted backs to enter the NFL in the last decade, combining outstanding vision, footwork, speed and power. He's fast enough to hit home runs, powerful enough to run through arm tackles, and skilled enough to wait on his blockers when a screen is called. Gurley averaged 6.4 yards per run in college. The 6-foot-1, 236-pounder suffered his knee injury in November. He might be ready by Week 1.

Kentucky DE/LB Alvin "Bud" Dupree "is going to test well at the combine, where he will run in the 4.68 range," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"He has explosive quickness off the snap and the ability to turn that into power and drive tackles back," Kiper wrote. "I think how he's valued will be in part based on how NFL teams see him as a fit and how well he shows he can play in space. But the guy is a tremendous kid, a tremendous worker and a special athlete, so I'm betting teams will be excited to get him in." The analyst calls Dupree a "big-time athlete." The 6-foot-4, 267-pound Dupree has showed great versatility with the Wildcats, playing both DE in the 4-3, and OLB in the 3-4 alignment. Kiper ranks him as the No. 25 prospect in the class.

An AFC college scouting director told NFL Media's Alber Breer that Ohio State sophomore edge rusher Joey Bosa is "First-rounder when he comes out."

"First-rounder when he comes out," an AFC college scouting director told NFL Media's Albert Breer. "A Patrick Kearney-type player, and will probably surpass that next year if he continues to develop." The Buckeyes prospect has recorded a conference-leading 13.5 sacks and 20 tackles for losses as a true sophomore. It's safe to say, that the 6-foot-5, 278-pound edge rusher will be one of the top talents on many team's boards going into the 2015 season.

An NFL GM told NFL Media's Alber Breer that Oregon junior DL Arik Armstead "has first-round talent, no doubt."

"No. 9 (Armstead) is extremely gifted," the GM told NFL Media's Albert Breer. "He has first-round talent, no doubt. The more he shows us in the playoff game, the better chance he has. But he's a 6-foot-8, 290-pound freak." The Ducks' defensive lineman has been told by NFL evaluators that he's a potential first-round pick and is likely NFL-bound. One AFC West GM said in a document obtained by Yahoo!. "Has everything you want out of a [defensive lineman]. Height, length, power, pass rush ability. Needs to show more consistency, but raw potential is very intriguing. First round."
