CBS Sports' Dane Brugler allocated a "draftable grade" to Mississippi State OT Charles Siddoway.

"He has skills worth molding and is worth a late round flier," Brugler tweeted. Siddoway visited the Bills last week. The 6-foot-5, 301-pound OT, who began his career at Cal, didn't attend the combine. It's possible he'll be moved inside at the next level.

Mississippi State G Gabe Jackson posted an official 5.51-second forty at the NFL Combine.

He posted two unofficial forty times of 5.43 and 5.57 seconds. Jackson wasn't expected to post a blazing time, and he didn't disappoint. He logged unofficial 10 yard splits of 1.78 and 1.81 seconds. The MSU offensive lineman is Mel Kiper's top-rated guard prospect.

ESPN.com's Mel Kiper lists Mississippi State senior G Gabe Jackson first amongst draft-eligible guards.

Kiper's OG rankings vary greatly from NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock's recent list. Kiper lists Mayock's top guard, Stanford's David Yankey, second, while Mayock's No. 2 OG, UCLA's Xavier Su'a-Filo, is slotted fourth by Kiper. Both analysts see Baylor's Cyril Richardson fifth amongst guards. Kiper ranks Clemson's Brandon Thomas as the No. 3 guard, while Mayock doesn't perceive him as a Top-5 talent at the position. Mayock, meanwhile, ranks Kiper's No. 9 guard -- Notre Dame's Chris Watt -- fourth. Mayock is very familiar with the Fighting Irish, and it's impossible to know if that access makes him biased or more insightful towards Notre Dame players.

Mississippi State senior G Gabe Jackson "emerged as the best guard" at the Senior Bowl, according to the game's Executive Director Phil Savage.

"He's really an anchor on the interior, can set the bottom of the pocket," said Savage. The 6-foot-4, 340-pound Jackson is blessed with premier size, strength and awareness. We also appreciate the big fella's flexibility and knee bend, but Jackson sometimes appears to be less than the sum of his parts. He might be ticketed for the middle rounds despite top-notch talent because he doesn't play as explosive as his gifts suggest he should. Jackson's motor and aggressiveness have both been questioned by evaluators.

Minnesota Vikings writer Mike Wobschall would not be surprised if the team added a G this offseason.

The 2014 guard class might not be at the caliber of last year's group, but talent is there. Gabe Jackson could be among the top prospects at the position and he has plenty of experience on the inside. The same cannot be said for many tackle to guard conversions that will surely take place this offseason.

Four-star CB recruit, and former Notre Dame signee, Tee Shepard will continue his playing career at Mississippi State.

Shepard played at the JUCO level in 2013. "I told them I’m a Dawg," Shepard said. "They’re all excited. The players, the coaches and everybody are just excited." He chose Mississippi State over Ole Miss, USC and Washington.

Mississippi State redshirt freshman QB Dak Prescott passed for 283 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns in Tuesday's 44-7 Liberty Bowl victory over Rice.

The sophomore quarterback set a Liberty Bowl record with five touchdowns. He finished 17 of 28 in pass attempts and came out after the third quarter with the Bulldogs nursing a huge lead. Prescott's favorite target was Jameon Lewis, who finished with nine receptions for 220 yards.

Mississippi State senior G Gabe Jackson accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl.

The 6-foot-4, 340-pounder is blessed with premier size, strength and awareness. "He has a very firm anchor in pass protection, and he can create movement at the point of attack in the run game," NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah noted last month. We like his athleticism, flexibility and knee bend, but Jackson sometimes appears to be less than the sum of his parts. Jackson is likely ticketed for the middle rounds despite top-notch talent because he doesn't play as explosive as his gifts suggest he should, and his motor and aggressiveness have both been questioned.

Mississippi State senior QB Tyler Russell underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

This is Russell's throwing shoulder, and he will obviously miss a good portion of the pre-draft process. It has been an up and down career for Russell, but he might get a camp invite this summer.

Mississippi State senior RB LaDarius Perkins accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

The senior rolled up 1,509 all-purpose yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012, but he's only accumulated 495 rushing yards and 238 receiving yards in 2013. Perkins is a muscular specimen with no elite attributes. His decreased role in State's offense this season won't do his draft stock any favors.

Mississippi State senior S Nickoe Whitley underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL on Monday.

Whitley underwent the surgery on Monday. The senior apparently played hurt since the third week of the season, and doctors knew at that time he would need surgery at some point. "He said, 'I'm not giving up on the team, I'm going to play it out, and I'll (have surgery) after the last regular-season game," Dan Mullen said. Whitley projects as a third day selection.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah notes Mississippi State senior G Gabe Jackson is generating buzz in the scouting community.

"He has outstanding size, strength and awareness," Jeremiah notes. "He has a very firm anchor in pass protection, and he can create movement at the point of attack in the run game." The Bulldogs face Alabama on Saturday, and evaluators will surely be re-watching this matchup during the process.

Mississippi State redshirt freshman QB Dak Prescott (elbow) is questionable for Saturday's game against No. 1 Alabama.

Prescott suffered the elbow injury in the fourth quarter of the Bulldogs' loss at Texas A&M over the weekend. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said an update on Prescott's availability would be released Wednesday. Senior Tyler Russell will get the call if Prescott can't play.

Mississippi State senior LB Deontae Skinner will miss Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Skinner was not listed on the injury report, and CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler did not include any details on why Skinner will miss the game. Miss State coaches love Skinner, and at the very least he will likely get a chance to contribute on special teams in the NFL.

Mississippi State senior RB LaDarius Perkins rushed 12 times for 65 yards in Thursday's win over Kentucky.

He added four catches for 34 yards. Perkins rolled up 1,509 all-purpose yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012, his first season as starter upon the departure of Vick Ballard. Perkins shares a lot in common with Ballard as a prospect. He's a muscular specimen with a well-rounded game and no elite attributes.
