ESPN's Sam Kahn Jr. writes that Texas A&M freshman WR Jhamon Ausbon "looks like he has a good chance to start and contribute right away."

"During spring football he was a quality performer, showing off his athleticism and ability to go get the football, aided by his good size (6-2, 220 pounds)," Kahn notes. With Speedy Noil, Josh Reynolds and Ricky Seals-Jones all no longer on the team, there will be ample opportunities for a player like Ausbon if he can capitalize. He ranked as a four-star recruit out of high school for the 2017 cycle.

SEC Country's Oliver Connolly writes that Texas A&M redshirt sophomore S Larry Pryor "isn’t a like-for-like [Justin] Evans replacement, but he will be equally productive."

The Bucs selected Evans in the second round of this spring's draft, leaving the Aggies the tall task of working in a replacement. The 6-foot, 200-pound Pryor could fit that bill, with Connolly writing that he "has good instincts as a middle-of-the-field safety and the smarts to re-route tight ends or running backs when he is asked to play closer to the line of scrimmage." This past season, Pryor registered 34 tackles (1.0 for loss) while intercepting a solitary pass over the course of nine games played.

Texas A&M redshirt freshman RB Rakeem Boyd plans on transferring.

This appears to be academics related. Boyd is apparently headed to the JUCO level. He was Rivals' No. 8 running back recruit out of high school.

Texas A&M redshirt freshman Justin Madubuike has shifted from DE to DT.

Madubuike redshirted last year after coming to campus as the Aggies' crown jewel of the 2016 class. He used that off year to bulk up to handle interior duties. "It seems that he'll be a prominent figure in the Aggies' rotation up front this fall after having a solid spring," ESPN's Edward Aschoff wrote. "With the losses along that defensive line, Madubuike will have to step up."

Texas A&M junior WR Kirk Merritt is transferring to East Mississippi Community College, according to Taylor Hamm.

EMCC is otherwise known as "Last Chance U." Merritt was dismissed a few weeks ago on two charges of indecent exposure after he allegedly exposed himself to tutors in October. Merritt's lawyers said their client was suffering from jock itch. Merritt will be eligible to play immediately at the JUCO level.

Seahawks signed Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil.

Noil (5’11/199) turned pro as a junior after amassing a career 88-1,134-9 (12.9 YPR) receiving line at TAMU, failing to reach 25 catches in each of his final two seasons. While theoretically explosive with 4.45 speed and a 43 ½-inch vertical, Noil’s athleticism didn’t translate to much production in the SEC. He never scored a TD on 60 career return opportunities and averaged only 23.0 yards on kickoff returns. CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler has suggested Noil switch to cornerback due to his poor hands and routes. Noil is also known to have baggage off the field.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin expects all Aggies recruits committed in December to sign during the early signing period.

The NCAA passed legislation last week for a new early signing period starting on Dec. 20 and lasting for 72 hours. "If a guy doesn't sign in December, he's not committed," Sumlin said. "He has a reservation." The early signing period will change college recruiting as we know it. Just how that will be remains to be seen.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff writes that "if one were to guess on who would take the first snap if the season started today [at Texas A&M]," it would be sophomore QB Nick Starkel.

Starkel is competing with senior QB Jake Hubenak and freshman QB Kellen Mond for the right to replace the outgoing Trevor Knight. During the Aggies' spring game, the 6-foot-4, 182-pounder threw for 174 yards and a touchdown. Aschoff writes that "the coaches have been impressed with his arm strength" and adds that Starkel "can make NFL throws and he can stretch the field better just about as well as anyone would want."

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Texas A&M junior WR Christian Kirk No. 5 overall on his first 2018 big board.

"Kirk's size (5-11, 200) might ding him in the eyes of scouts, but he's a tremendous receiver and return man with excellent speed," Kiper wrote. "From everything I've heard, Kirk is a studious guy who is always looking to learn." Over his two years on campus, Kirk has already piled up 163 catches and 16 receiving touchdowns, along with three punt return scores in 2016. Kirk ranked No. 8 nationally last year with 576 yards after the catch. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom slotted him No. 13 to the Lions in a recent 2018 mock draft. "Kirk has been shredding the SEC since he stepped foot on campus and would give Detroit a lightning-quick weapon on the perimeter," Nystrom wrote.

Rotoworld's Evan Silva assigned the Browns an "A-" grade for their draft.

The Browns went for upside throughout, following No. 1 overall pick Texas A&M Myles Garrett with fellow first-round picks Michigan S/KR Jabrill Peppers and Miami TE David Njoku. Cleveland took Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer in the middle of the second round. "When considering this draft also yielded [Jamie] Collins and Houston’s [2018] first-rounder, I’d have a very hard time quibbling with it in any respect," Silva wrote. CBS Sports' Pete Prisco gave Cleveland's class a perfect "A" grade, while ESPN's Mel Kiper graded it as a "B." Kiper's main quibble was that Cleveland bypassed the first-round QB prospects and took Kizer, a prospect he isn't high on.

Jaguars signed Texas A&M G Avery Gennesy.

Gennesy (6’3/318) spent three years at TAMU after transferring from community college, starting the final two at left tackle and earning first-team All-SEC recognition from the conference’s coaches as a senior. A quality college starter with severe athletic deficiencies, Gennesy posted the lowest SPARQ score among all offensive linemen at the Combine. Also short for a tackle, Gennesy’s best shot at an NFL career is almost certainly inside at guard. His test results suggest he has a low floor.

Texas A&M dismissed junior WR Kirk Merritt.

Merritt is facing two charges of indecent exposure after he allegedly revealed and touched his genitals in front of tutors on consecutive days in October. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges, with his lawyer citing a case of jock itch -- an explanation that one of his accusers called "absurd." The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder sat out the past season after transferring over from Oregon.

Cardinals signed Texas A&M WR Ricky Seals-Jones.

Seals-Jones (6’5/243) disappointed as a near-consensus five-star recruit to TAMU, managing a career 123-1,442-10 (11.7 YPR) receiving line with only 26 catches in 11 games as a redshirt junior last year. Seals-Jones’ game tape reveals a player who does not separate and drops far too many passes, in addition to struggling in contested-catch situations despite his tight end-like size. Seals-Jones all but sealed his fate with a 4.69 forty and a putrid 28-inch vertical at the Combine. Seals-Jones will likely have to convert to tight end full time and learn to run down kickoffs to become any sort of NFL factor.

NFL Media's Chad Reuter graded the Los Angeles Rams as having a "B-" draft.

While the Rams did not land at the head of Reuter's class when all was said and done, the analyst saw them as improving in their selecting process on each of the three days of the draft. He assigned them a C for Day 1 (pretty charitable given that they had no pick), a B+ for Day 2 and a strong A for Day 3. Two Day 3 picks which Reuter was particularly pleased with -- those of Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds and Eastern Washington LB Samson Ebukam.

Ravens selected Texas A&M OG Jermaine Eluemunor with the No. 159 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Eluemunor (6’4/332) started only one season, shuttling between right guard and right tackle as a fifth-year senior. He is originally from London and starred as a wrestler in high school. Eluemunor is extremely raw with limited football experience, but he possesses incredible upper-body strength and surprising athleticism for his meaty build. He ran 5.22 and did 34 bench-press reps at the Combine. Eluemunor likely needs a developmental year before pushing for NFL snaps.
