The Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman reports that Texas A&M OC Noel Mazzone will not be taking the offensive coordinating job at Auburn.

We might have to let the dust settle here, as 247Sports had been reporting that Mazzone was a potential leading candidate to replace the UConn-bound Rhett Lashlee as offensive coordinator at Auburn. Mazzone, 59, initially joined up with HC Kevin Sumlin's crew last winter.

NFL Media draft analyst Bucky Brooks tagged Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett's decision to declare for the draft as a strong one.

In other news, water is wet. Garrett is a strong candidate to be drafted first overall by the Cleveland Browns come this spring's draft and had little incentive to stay in school for another season. "Despite dealing with nagging injuries during his final season at Texas A&M, Garrett consistently dominated the game at the line of scrimmage against the run and pass," Brooks wrote. "Most importantly, he looked like the best player on the field whenever he squared off against an elite competitor on the edge." The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder is an out-and-out defensive terror, having recorded a stellar 47 tackles for loss and 31 sacks during his collegiate career.

Texas A&M OL Avery Gennesy accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound tackle was a consensus four-star recruit coming out of junior college, where he attended East Mississippi Community College (of "Last Chance U" fame). Gennesy took over the Texas A&M left tackle job from Germain Ifedi, but we think there's a chance he could kick inside at the next level.

CBS Sports' draft analyst kept Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett atop his Big Board despite a sub-par bowl performance.

No surprise there. While Garrett made just one tackle in a Texas Bowl loss to Kansas State, that has no effect whatsoever on his immense talent. Wrote Rang, "Garrett remains the top NFL-eligible prospect in the country -- he has a prototypical blend of explosiveness, flexibility and length off the corner and the look of a future Pro Bowl regular." The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder declared for the draft at the end of December and could well find himself encased in a Cleveland Browns jersey as the No. 1 overall pick when the draft proper commences this spring.

Texas A&M junior WR Speedy Noil announced that he'll declare for the NFL Draft.

This is a dissatisfying end to a disappointing career. A consensus five-star recruit who flew into Texas A&M as one of the nation's 10 best prospects in 2014, the quick-as-a-blur Noil was expected to dominate in the Aggies' wide-open offense. Instead, he regressed on the field while being dogged with personal issues off it. Noil's best season turned out to be his 44-559-5 campaign as a true frosh. Last year, as a sophomore, he posted a 21-226-2 line. This year, the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder had a 21-325-2 line. Between the mediocre production and the legal issues, Noil is going to get picked far lower than experts once thought. Someone will take a chance on the electrifying speed, though, which is a tier below Tyreek Hill's. With Ricky Seals-Jones declaring and Josh Reynolds graduating, Noil would have been wise to return to take advantage of the myriad single coverages that come from playing across from Christian Kirk.

The Cleveland Browns will have the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Browns will also have the No. 12 pick thanks to their trade with the Eagles prior to the 2016 NFL Draft. The rest of the top five includes the 49ers, Bears, Jaguars and Titans via the Rams.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

As expected. Garrett struggled with injury at times this season and wasn't quite able to make good on lofty statistical expectations, but the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder is a true defensive terror and could potentially land as high as the first overall pick in the spring draft. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has referred to him as "one of the most explosive, physical specimens in the college game," while ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that the Browns have given Garrett an "astronomical grade."

Texas A&M redshirt junior WR Ricky Seals-Jones will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Seals-Jones finished out his Aggies career with a 6-34-1 line in Wednesday's bowl loss to Kansas State. For the 2016 season as a whole, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound redshirt junior caught 26 passes for 333 yards and a touchdown. He did not surpass 600 yards receiving in any one season at Texas A&M. While the statistical output has been lacking, Seals-Jones has prototypical NFL size and NFL Media's Bucky Broks wrote at the end of September that the wideout possesses "the kind of size and athleticism to terrorize opponents in the red zone." This is an opinion that has been echoed by multiple analysts over the course of Seals-Jones' career.

Texas A&M senior WR Josh Reynolds caught 12 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Wednesday's 33-28 loss to Kansas State in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl.

The Aggies might have lost the game, but Reynolds was incredible nonetheless. He showed off impeccable body control time and time again. During one stretch in the second half, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound senior went on a hot streak, hauling in seemingly every pass which came remotely close to him. He would catch tightly covered touchdowns of four and 15 yards in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. He is heading to the Senior Bowl next month as he embarks on his journey toward the professional ranks and can now look back on a 2016 season in which he logged a 61-1039-12 receiving line across 13 games played.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote that he "couldn't help but think of Julius Peppers' body type when he was coming out of North Carolina" as he watched Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett in the Texas Bowl.

There is no denying that Garrett has the build of a potentially dominant next-level pass-rusher, but Zierlein has been somewhat underwhelmed by Garrett's tape this season. He floated the belief that the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder might be playing to avoid complicating a nagging ankle injury. "If he had been playing cautiously, it would account for a downturn in the quality of his tape," Zierlein wrote. "After all, we are talking about one of the most explosive, physical specimens in the college game." Even with questions about his tape this season, Garrett remains a legitimate contender to be drafted with the first overall pick come the spring draft.

Twelve of Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett's 32.5 sacks were tallied against SEC opponents.

The percentage of in conference sacks is noteworthy compared to other pass rushers in this class, as Garrett recorded 16 sacks against Lamar, Rice, Louisiana-Monroe, Nevada and UTSA. However, this does not really concern us. To compare to a draft storyline from a few years ago, many worried about Odell Beckham's lack of touchdowns versus SEC competition.

The Browns will earn the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft with a loss to the Steelers in week 17.

If the Browns beat the Steelers, which is possible since Pittsburgh could rest a number of starters, the 49ers could lock in the No. 1 pick with a loss of their own. Both teams are bad, but with a number of teams on the bench, the Steelers could be led by Landry Jones. The 49ers are facing the Seattle Seahawks, with no reason to rest players. In a sick twist of fate, the Browns could end the season on a winning streak.

Texas A&M received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 ATH Jordan Moore.

Moore has played both sides of the ball for Yoakum High (Texas), but indicated that he sees wide receiver as his clearest path to early playing time. Said the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder, "It’s going to be interesting, but if I had to choose what I was going to play when I get out there, it’s probably going to be slot receiver." He ranks as Rivals' No. 180 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Keep an eye on his brother, Joshua Moore, himself a four-star recruit in the same class.

Texas A&M redshirt senior QB Trevor Knight (shoulder) said that he will "absolutely" be playing in the Advocare V100 Texas Bowl.

Knight sustained a shoulder injury against Mississippi State on November 5, missed a pair of contests, then returned to throw for 211 yards and three touchdowns in a loss to LSU to close out the regular season. Barring a setback, it looks like he should be good to go for the Aggies' bowl showdown with the Wildcats on December 28.
