Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi dropped to No. 6 on Mel Kiper's OT rankings.

"The unfortunate injury to Ogbuehi has hurt him a bit," Kiper wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder suffered a torn ACL in the Aggies' victory versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Ogbuehi's stock was "crashing" following his torn ACL, though ESPN's Todd McShay only dropped Ogbuehi from No. 13 to No. 22 on his Big Board.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "hurt his knee during the season and the tear he suffered during the team[']s bowl game was actually the cherry on the whip cream."

We're guessing Ogbuehi would choose a different metaphor to describe the knee injury that may, in the end, cost him millions of dollars. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder suffered the injury in the Aggies' victory versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Ogbuehi's stock was "crashing" following his torn ACL, though ESPN's Todd McShay only dropped Ogbuehi from No. 13 to No. 22 on his Big Board.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes that there "are at least 15 running backs this year more talented than" Texas A&M junior RB Trey Williams.

The 5-foot-7 3/4, 190-pound Williams was one of the draft's most surprising early entrants. "You would think that somebody at this size would want to stay in school and maybe become a specialist," Brandt wrote. "He did average 6.9 yards per carry this year, but he was used very sparingly in the passing game. When a guy who hasn't really done anything sensational in college has eligibility remaining, why wouldn't he want to use it to the fullest?" Williams, a true junior, recently turned 22. In three seasons with the Aggies, he rushed for 1,343 yards and 18 touchdowns on 204 carries.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi (ACL) remains No. 22 on Todd McShay's Big Board.

He fell from No. 13. After Ogbuehi's knee injury, one would have expected a steeper drop. "Ogbuehi suffered a torn ACL in Texas A&M's bowl win over West Virginia, putting into question his draft stock and when he'll be able to return to the field. Prior to the injury, he played both tackle spots for the Aggies this season," McShay wrote. "He is excellent in pass protection with outstanding quickness and natural athleticism, and he shows good mobility as a zone blocker in the running game." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi hopes to follow in Dominique Easley's footsteps by going in the first round after a torn ACL in his last season on campus.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi's "stock is crashing following a torn ACL," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

He suffered the injury in the Aggies' victory versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi shifted from right to left tackle to replace departed first-round pick Jake Matthews this season and scuffled. "Though he struggled with the switch, when healthy, the 6-foot-5, 300 pound Ogbuehi possesses all of the athletic traits scouts look for in a potential NFL left tackle, including the combination of length, light feet and balance to handle speed rushers," Rang wrote. "It is a package that few others possess in a solid but somewhat unspectacular 2015 class of tackles." Prior to the injury, Ogbuehi was No. 5 offensive tackle and 23rd overall prospect. "That ranking is certain to change, however," Rang wrote. The tackle is set for surgery soon and could potentially be ready for training camp.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi will have surgery soon to repair a torn ACL suffered in the school's bowl game, according to Rand Getlin.

This is crushing news for Ogbuehi. The Aggies beat the Mountaineers in their bowl game, but it came at a price. Ogbuehi could have entered last year's draft and was already being criticized for his play this year. He was set to attend next week's Senior Bowl. Brandon Thomas suffered a major injury while working out for a team last year and was not selected until the third-round by the 49ers. Conversely, Dominique Easley tore his ACL during his final season at Florida and was selected at the end of the first-round.

Former Texas A&M sophomore Kenny Hill's father told Bruce Feldman the QB has not firmly decided on transferring to TCU just yet.

"We have not committed to any school at this time," Hill's father said. "We will begin meeting with schools on the 15th of January when the dead period is over. Any previous reports suggesting we are committed to any school is simply inaccurate." We still expect Hill to end up at TCU, and this is likely talk to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill is set to transfer to TCU, according to Travis Haney.

Hill recently asked for his release from A&M. Many jumped to conclusions on Hill during the early parts of the 2014 season, calling him a potential Heisman contender. He completed 67 percent of his passes with a 23:8 TD to INT ratio before being replaced by Kyle Allen. Hill was the subsequently suspended from the football team. Hill will likely have to sit out the 2015 season, but could take over the starting job for TCU when Trevone Boykin graduates.
Jan 9 - 9:27 AM

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "is one of the most polarizing players in the draft class," according to NFL.com.

"Some personnel men have him ranked as the top OT while others don't value him as a first-round talent," reported NFL.com's draft team of Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein. "Everyone expects him to be the star of the NFL Scouting Combine because of his rare physical tools." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi shifted from right to left tackle to replace departed first-round pick Jake Matthews this season. He was briefly shifted back to the right side before ending the year at left tackle. Ogbuehi earned First Team All-American honors and a smattering of other awards, but those rewards may have been based on reputation. "He struggled [as a left tackle], failing to consistently show the balance needed to pass protect against speed and power," NFL Media wrote. "It won't be a surprise if NFL teams view him as a better fit for the right side, at least to start his career."

Texas A&M senior WR Malcome Kennedy will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

The 6-foot, 205-pound Kennedy functioned the past two seasons as a reliable chain mover in the Aggies' high-flying attack. He caught 60 balls for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013 as Mike Evans' sidekick, and posted 53 catches for 611 receiving yards and six scores in 2014 despite missing two games with a shoulder injury. He's a fringy prospect.

Texas A&M junior RB Trey Williams declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Williams is just a true junior but recently turned 22 years old. The "air" back could intrigue teams as a back who wins out in space, but he also flashed speed between the tackles. In three seasons he rushed for 1,343 yards and 18 touchdowns on 204 carries.
Jan 1 - 12:35 PM

Texas A&M freshman QB Kyle Allen completed 22-of-35 passes for 294 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Monday's 45-37 Liberty Bowl victory over West Virginia.

He also had 33 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. The five-star recruit was sensational, completing 63-percent of his passes and posting his highest QB rating since the Aggies upset Auburn in November. Allen showed off an impressive arm, hitting receivers in stride, fitting balls into windows, and testing the Mountaineers deep when they cheated up. Top-ranked dual-threat QB recruit Kyler Murray is coming in the spring, giving A&M two of the best signal-calling prospects in the NCAA for the next few years at least.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi will attend the Senior Bowl.

After moving from right tackle to left tackle this season, the 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi was name First team All-American (Walter Camp) and first team All Big-12. The Texas A & M prospect may take the Senior Bowl as an opportunity to prove that he's indeed a left tackle worth investing in. Recently an anonymous scout called Ogbuehi "soft" and noted he "never practices." Our own Josh Norris ranks Ogbuehi behind Ronnie Stanley and La'El Collins.

Utah OC Dave Christensen is joining Texas A&M as the Aggies' new OL coach and run game coordinator.

Some could view this as a demotion for Christensen, however he only spent one year at Utah and takes over a position group which has produced multiple early draft picks. Christensen has previous head coaching experience at Wyoming.
