Cal junior QB Jared Goff threw for a season-high 453 passing yards and a career-high six touchdowns in Saturday's 54-24 win over Oregon State.

He finished 26-for-37 with an interception. More important than Goff's big game is that it led to Cal to its sixth win, which means the school's first bowl game since 2011. "The whole atmosphere is really awesome right now, I'm just trying to enjoy it," Goff said. "It's kind of a culmination of three years of hard work since coach Dykes got here, since I got here, since a lot of us got here. I've said a million times . all work we put in was going to pay off eventually. By no means are we done." Cal (6-4, 3-4 Pac-12) had a school-record 760 yards offense in the victory.

Cal junior QB Jared Goff's "rash of interceptions in recent Pac-12 games is concerning," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Goff does flash traits that evaluators can fall in love with at the next level. In 32 starts, Goff has put up solid numbers, with 10,347 yards passing, with a 77-29 TD-to-INT ratio on his resume. However, Rang notes that "Sonny Dykes' up-tempo spread offense" has helped inflate Goff's stats. Rang still has Goff as his top QB prospect and believes Goff "offers exciting traits: good anticipation, impressive accuracy on short and intermediate passes, functional mobility and toughness."

An NFC personnel director advises Cal junior QB Jared Goff to return to school next year.

"He's been the hot ticket and talk in college football this year, and there is no denying his talent, but I see him as best served by going back to school," the personnel director said. "He needs more heft to give him a bit more padding and body armor, and the more starts and situations that he sees in college, the better. Plus, his team keeps improving, and success can never be underestimated for a QB." Regardless of the merit of this argument, we'd be stunned if Goff returned to school because of his first-round grade and possible ranking as the class' best QB. Goff has little left to prove in college, though NFL teams do want him to bulk up.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler has Cal junior QB Jared Goff landing with the San Francisco 49ers at No. 5 in his latest mock draft.

"Would the 49ers move on from Colin Kaepernick? The way he has played (six touchdowns and five interceptions over eight games), San Francisco might not have a choice. Goff, who grew up right outside San Francisco, is still growing as a passer, but his ceiling has scouts intrigued," Brugler worte. On the season, the Cal prospect has completed 66.3% of his passes for 2,537 yards, with a 22/11 TD/INT ratio. However, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Goff has hit a slight rough patch during the Bears three game losing streak, but it should not affect his draft stock.

Cal junior QB Jared Goff was named a semifinalist for the 2015 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award.

Goff is one of 17 semifinalists for the award. His competition includes TCU's Trevone Boykin, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Houston's Greg Ward Jr. For his part, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Goff is completing 66.3% of his passes for 2,537 yards and a 22/11 TD/INT ratio through eight games played. While his numbers are very good, the Golden Bears have lost three consecutive games in conference play against Utah, UCLA and USC. They finish out the year playing Oregon (road), Oregon State (home), Stanford (road) and Arizona State (home). If they can't come through down the home stretch, it's going to hurt Goff's chances at end-of-the-season hardware regardless of how good his numbers end up looking.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Cal junior QB Jared Goff has shown "greater instincts and accuracy from the pocket than Kaepernick," and mocks Goff to the San Francisco 49ers at the No. 5 spot in his latest mock draft.

"Unless Colin Kaepernick makes significant progress over the second half of the 2015 season, general manager Trent Baalke may have little choice but to consider other options, especially if Goff were available to him," Rang writes. The California signal caller has shown NFL traits that evaluators have fallen in love with. However, Goff has shown he's human in the last 4 games, as he's thrown 8 interceptions. Either way, a QB-needy team will have a hard time passing on Goff's upside, if he's on the board in the top half of the first round.

Former Chicago Bears director of college scouting Greg Gabriel Cal junior QB Jared Goff is not the best quarterback prospect in the draft.

Gabriel made the comment in a tweet about how Goff had just thrown his eighth interception in four games. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks replied and asked Gabriel to identify a better QB prospect than Goff. It's a fair point: It's easy to criticize the opinion that Goff is a top-five draft prospect, but if Goff ends up being the highest-ranked QB in a bad class, that may happen even if everyone agrees he's not going to be the second coming of Aaron Rodgers.

An NFL scout says Cal junior QB Jared Goff will be one of the first two signal-callers drafted this spring if he declares for the NFL.

"I think he's going to be a pretty solid first-round pick," the NFL scout told The Los Angeles Times. "He'd be one of the first two QBs taken in this year's draft if he were to come out." Said a second scout asked by the Times about Goff: Scout 2: "He's an elite-arm talent guy and he's got a much higher ceiling than Cody [Kessler] does. [Goff] needs to protect the ball a little better and needs to play a little bit more and kind of know what he can do and can't do." NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein wrote last week that Goff "will have checks in most of the boxes NFL teams are looking for in a quarterback."

Cal junior QB Jared Goff completed 23-of-31 passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-21 loss to USC.

Goff opened the scoring in Saturday's showdown with USC, tossing a six-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Treggs midway through the first quarter. Unfortunately for the Golden Bear faithful, USC would proceed to rattle off 24 points unanswered. For his part, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Goff's thrown at least two touchdown passes in every game this season. Through eight contests completed, he's passed for 2,542 yards with a 22/11 TD/INT ratio.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes "it may take a bit longer than many expect" for Cal junior QB Jared Goff to be "truly NFL ready."

"He’s a cerebral quarterback with the ability to accurately place passes into the hands of intended targets. Goff needs to physically mature as he possesses a thin build and struggles standing up against the rush but he offers a tremendous amount of upside," Pauline wrote. The Cal prospect's stock has taken some hits as of late, but Goff should have a good opportunity to rebound against a Trojans' pass defense, that sits in the bottom half of the PAC 12.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that NFL general managers have begun to vet Cal junior QB Jared Goff beyond the information provided to them by west coast scouts.

Typically, area scouts provide the bulk of information clubs know about prospects in the preliminary stages of the process. In situations such as Goff's -- a high-ranking prospect leaning towards early entry -- the homework timeline accelerates. "During several conversations late last week with those on the west coast close to the situation I’m told Goff’s family is giving every indication he will make the jump to the NFL once he closes out the season," Pauline wrote. "And though far from a guarantee, it seems more than the usual evaluation process is taking place." Goff, who has thrown five interceptions and been sacked eight times during the Bears' two-game losing streak, has a marquee matchup against USC this weekend.

After watching three games of Cal junior QB Jared Goff, the MMQB's Andy Benoit believes the passer "irrefutably projects to stardom."

Benoit opens by comparison Goff to Andrew Luck, which might be considered a sin in evaluation circles because Luck was an extremely clean prospect. What stood out to Benoit? Pocket movement, composure, eye level, touch and learning from previous mistakes. Benoit suggests fits in Chicago and Washington as solid. Our biggest complaint with the statement is the term "irrefutable" off three games and this early in the draft process. The process has so many pieces, and to an evaluation is "not able to be proved wrong" is rare. Very rare. Still, we like the confidence with which Benoit speaks about Goff. Many evaluators love his game.

Cal junior QB Jared Goff is a "player who will have checks in most of the boxes NFL teams are looking for in a quarterback," according to NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The Cal prospect had a rough outing against the Utes' defense last week, but bounced back nicely in Cal's 40-24 loss to UCLA. The Golden Bears QB completed 32 of 53 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns on Thursday night. Zierlein added that Goff's "poise in the pocket and ability to extend a play with his feet" caught his eyes.

Cal junior QB Jared Goff completed 32 of 53 attempts for 295 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 40-24 loss to UCLA.

As usual, Goff made some insane throws down the field, with pinpoint placement and touch. This is such an interesting scheme to project quarterbacks to the NFL. In many instances, the offensive line is run blocking but Goff has the choice of a run/pass option, which could result in near-immediate pressure. Goff compensates for his fade away style with tight window throws that appear to be closed. This was a very solid bounce back from a five interception performance.
