Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes that UCLA senior OL Scott Quessenberry has a "great head for the game."

Pauline refers to the 6-foot-3, 288-pound Quessenberry as a "tough, slug it out guy." So long as he is able to clear medical checks without issue, the analyst likes the offensive lineman to land as an early selection on Day 3 of the spring draft. While Quessenberry is currently playing center for the Bruins, he also has upside at guard.

Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Datrin Guyton caught five passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in Tuesday's 34-31 loss to Eastern Michigan.

Guyton (6'3/203) came down with a 63-yard scoring catch on a bomb of a throw by Jarret Doege with 4:36 remaining in the third quarter to give the Falcons a 31-27 edge. EMU would respond with a score of their own later in the stanza to take the lead once more, that time for good. Guyton finishes out the season for the 2-10 Falcons having caught 36 passes for 697 yards and three touchdowns.

North Carolina four-star 2018 LB Payton Wilson reopened his recruitment.

This one does not come completely out of the blue. Rivals analyst Adam Friedman speculated earlier this month that the 6--foot-4, 220-pound Wilson was a potential flip candidate, with NC State a likely benefactor. We'll have to wait and see if the Wolfpack will, indeed, snare Rivals' No. 133 overall prospect from their in-state rivals. Notre Dame, Ohio State and Clemson are also in the mix, here.

Virginia Tech junior RB Steven Peoples (foot) is probable for Friday's game against Virginia.

Peoples went through a long stretch where has missed three straight games and six of seven due to a foot injury. The 5-foot-9, 218-pounder has rushed for 140 yards (3.7 YPC) and three touchdowns this season. He'll serve as a depth option for the Hokies if he does manage to suit up on Black Friday.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that "word at the (UCLA-USC) game" this past Saturday was that UCLA redshirt junior T Kolton Miller will declare for the draft.

Pauline, himself, reported likewise several weeks ago, so this one looks like it has some real steam behind it. Miller (6'8/310) is a borderline first-round selection, with the analyst noting that the weak state of this draft class at tackle could help to push him up some boards.

Virginia Tech redshirt junior WR C.J. Carroll (foot) is probable for Friday's game against Virginia.

Should Carroll suit up and play on Friday, it would mark the first time he has seen the field since the end of September. A nagging, slow-to-heal foot injury has kept him out of action in the interim. Prior to going down injured, the redshirt junior had caught 10 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown.

Tennessee dismissed junior WR Jauan Jennings following an Instagram video in which he criticized the coaching staff.

Jennings went so far as to say in the video that "the coaching staff is holding us back" while throwing out words like "lying" "snake" and "fake" to describe the coaching staff. In a statement, interim HC Brady Hoke said that the decision to dismiss Jennings was made "in consultation" with AD Jack Currie. The 6-foot-3, 201-pound junior wideout is currently sidelined with a season-ending wrist dislocation suffered in the opener against Georgia Tech. The wideout's next move is not currently known -- Jennings could potentially jump for the draft or he could pursue a transfer.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Chip Kelly is leaning toward accepting the open head-coaching position at UCLA.

There have been an avalanche of various reports regarding Kelly and his future job plans in the last 12 hours. ESPN's Mark Schlabach reported early on Wednesday morning that Kelly had met with UCLA officials on Tuesday and would be deciding between Florida and the Bruins in the coming days. He reportedly met with Florida officials on Sunday. While two outlets reported earlier on Wednesday that Kelly-to-UCLA was a done deal, one of those reports (by 247Sports) has subsequently been pulled and there has been no official word from the Bruins as to a hiring. CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd is reporting that a decision one way or another is likely by Sunday. At this juncture, Kelly is not expected to take a job outside of either UCLA or Florida, though USA Today hears that Arizona State might be enticing if the Sun Devils opt to move on from Todd Graham.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline compares some of the talk of alleged personality issues with UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen to what was said of former Michigan State QB Connor Cook.

Per Pauline, at least two NFL GM's have flat-out decided that Rosen will be a stay-away for draft purposes due to his demeanor. Writes the analyst, "Opinions are that Rosen is not the leader they need on the field for the next level -- the things he’s gotten away with on the college field won’t fly in the NFL." Pauline adds that "[t]he word egotistical was mentioned many times in referring to Rosen." We're almost surely going to continue to hear reports along these lines as the draft process picks up speed, but Rosen is also supremely talented -- one evaluator told Pauline that many of his throws are "off the charts" special -- and could well end up the No. 1 quarterback selected in the spring, even with questions of character and demeanor floating about.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin said that he has not spoken with AD Scott Woodward since Saturday.

The Houston Chronicle reported on Tuesday evening that Texas A&M would fire Sumlin following this weekend's upcoming game against LSU -- win or lose. "I think our team has done a really nice job of focusing on games at hand," Sumlin said on a conference call with SEC coaches on Wednesday, "and we’ll continue to do that. Certainly we’ve had that experience (of dealing with coaching rumors) since the beginning of the year." For the time being, we're in a holding pattern, here. Expect plenty more to come from this story one way or another once Saturday's game is played.

Michigan senior QB Wilton Speight (neck) continues to work as a non-contact participant in practice.

While Speight was cleared to practice earlier this month, he remains without a concrete timetable to return to game action. It certainly won't come against Ohio State on Saturday, though he could potentially see time in the Wolverines' bowl game next month depending on the tract of his recovery as the snow begins to fly. Speight has been sidelined since September 23, when he fractured three vertebrae in a win over Purdue.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline was told by one evaluator that USC redshirt sophomore QB Sam Darnold possesses physical skills that are "Hall of Fame caliber."

Scouts from a multitude of NFL teams were on hand for this past Saturday's big showdown between USC's Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen. Writes Pauline of Darnold, "His arm strength, foot quickness and ability to pull a rabbit out of the hat when there is seemingly nothing available was incredibly impressive to scouts." Scouts were also keen on Darnold's ability to bounce back from mistakes. As for a few demerits, Pauline notes that the redshirt sophomore still has much work to do on the fronts of "technique, ball security and defensive reads." The consensus among the analyst's little scouting birds is that Darnold would be well-served by returning to USC next season.

Arkansas junior WR Jonathan Nance (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against Missouri.

The exact extent of Nance's knee injury is not currently known, but it's looking like he's a dicey proposition for the weekend. The 6-foot, 182-pounder has turned in a nice season to date with a 37-539-5 receiving line across 11 games played. If Nance can't play against the Tigers, Deon Stewart and Jordan Jones are two potential beneficiaries. We should have a better idea of Nance's availability in the coming days.
Nov 22 - 6:46 PM

Eastern Michigan redshirt senior QB Brogan Roback was carted off the field in Tuesday's win over Bowling Green.

While the Eagles did pick up the victory, it came at tough personal cost to Roback. After he was carted off with the leg injury, he later returned to the sideline in a boot with crutches. The redshirt senior's collegiate career now finished, he can begin to look ahead to the NFL Draft. He's a potential Day 3 selection, though obviously the evaluation will very much be a fluid matter until NFL squads have a chance to see some specifics on the health front following Tuesday's unfortunate injury.
Nov 22 - 6:33 PM

Pitt senior TE Matt Flanagan (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Miami.

For all intents and purposes, this ends Flanagan's collegiate career -- Pitt is currently bogged down with a 4-7 record. He will end up missing the final three games of the season due to the undisclosed injury concern. For his career, the 6-foot-6, 258-pounder posted a 35-305-3 receiving line.
