Bo Nix - QB - Tigers

ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared Auburn four-star 2019 QB Bo Nix to current Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham.

Despite the simplicity, Luginbill likes this comparison and says "When you look at Stidham coming out of high school and now at Auburn, you'll see that Nix has the same development trajectory. Both are deceptively good athletes with excellent release mechanics." Nix will compete with 2018 four-star recruit Joey Gatewood for the starting job once he arrives on campus. Luginbill believes Nix will win the job due to his similarities to Stidham and said, "Nix isn't the athlete Gatewood is but will be ahead of the curve in the passing game and is a good enough runner to do what Stidham does in this offense."

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compared Ohio State DL Jalyn Holmes to Indianapolis Colts DT Henry Anderson.

After turning in an inconsistent senior bowl, Holmes has drawn a lot of interest from teams leading up to the draft. Zierlein isn't as confident in Holmes, saying he "doesn't rush well enough to be a 4-3 end and needs more strength to fit into 3-4 fronts. However, if he improves his hand usage and adds lower body strength, he has the potential to become an effective 3-4 end with the ability to push the pocket as an interior rusher in sub packages." Zierlein projects him to be drafted in Round 3. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom agrees with Zierlein and has Holmes as his 8th-ranked defensive end. Nystrom believes he will likely "eventually be a lower-end starter at the next level."

ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared Oklahoma four-star 2019 QB commit Spencer Rattler to Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois.

Luginbill explains this comparison "is primarily due to both players' effortless release of the football -- a smooth, loose and compact stroke that jumps off their hand." Luginbill continues by mentioning that Rattler may be best off by redshirting but his "physical ability could find him in the No. 2 spot behind Kyler Murray." Rattler is different than former Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield in that he will likely have more designated run plays and "is a better fit for the run/pass option."

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compared Auburn LB/edge rusher Jeffery Holland to New Orleans Saint LB Hau'oli Kikaha.

Holland (6'1/249) struggled mightily in athletic testing at the combine, producing a composite score in the 12th percentile. Zierlein noted that he finds other ways to win and said "he's a hard-nosed player who found a way to consistently harass quarterbacks in 2017. Holland wins as a rusher with a smart approach, good angles and plus play strength." Zierlein projects him to be selected in rounds 4-5. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom has Holland ranked as the 9th-best outside linebacker in this class and acknowledges his extreme range of outcomes but said if he falls to Day 3 he would definitely "pounce."

Alabama junior RB Joshua Jacobs (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday and is "unlikely" to play in their spring game.

Jacobs wore a black non-contact jersey and only participated in a few drills at practice. Recovering from an offseason ankle surgery, Jacobs has been limited all spring and may not be fully recovered for another few months. It will be tough for Jacobs to carve out a role behind starters Damien Harris and Najee Harris barring injury, but getting himself healthy is likely his first priority.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compared NC State RB Nyheim Hines to Houston Texans RB Tyler Ervin.

Zierlein dives deeper, saying "Hines (5'8/198) has dual-threat talent but doesn't have the size for full-time work at running back and is in need of much more work as a receiver. Hines' value to teams could rest upon how they envision using him." Zierlein projects him to be selected in rounds 3-4 but notes he could "benefit" from the recent success of Saints RB Alvin Kamara in a similar role. Hines recently visited the Cowboys and would be a great fit in Dallas as a pass-catching role player behind Ezekiel Elliott.

Alabama ILB sophomore Dylan Moses worked with the outside linebackers in practice on Thursday.

This is of interest because Moses is projected to be one of the Crimson Tide's starting inside linebackers. However, Alabama often cross-trains their linebackers which would explain some of his time being spent with the outside linebackers. SEC Country's Marq Burnett speculates they could also potentially utilize him "in certain packages as a rusher off the edge." As a true freshman in 2017, Moses recorded 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and added an interception and a forced fumble. He will likely play a significant role in Alabama's defense as a sophomore in 2018.

An NFC Area Scout said Texas CB Holton Hill will "fall farther than he should" in the NFL draft.

The scout is referencing Hill failing multiple drug tests in college and continued by saying, "He needed a clean, productive season to rehab the perception around him and I felt like he should have gone back to school. He can play. He's a Day 2 talent, but I doubt he goes there." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares him to Steelers safety Sean Davis and projects him to be drafted in rounds 4-5. If a team believes they can change his ways, Hill could be a great value pick in the later rounds as a player with starting abilities but serious off-field concerns.
