From what I've seen and read, he's smallish, relies to much on improvisation, lacks arm strength and is a bit of a head case at times. As I've said, there are a ton of college QBS who have accomplished great things in college,  then fail in the NFL. There's a reason whenever the top QB prospects are named he isn't among them.

 

It’s not too late to hop on this wagon. I’ll move over and make room. The guy is a baller! Just watch him play.

All three of those guys will not be picked before Mayfield.

Yes, all three will. I could have thrown for 400 yards against that paper mache defense. He's Manziel, he's Colt McCoy, he's any number of Big 12 QBs over the past 15 years who light up that no defense conference and are never heard from again once they're in the NFL. Don't say I didn't warn you.

My man-crush for Penny lives on. I taped that game and will watch it today. I recently acquired a top 5 pick that could be 1 or 2 and he’s my target. I love his game and think it translates well at the next level.

Tex

Big fan.

South Alabama junior WR Jamarius Way caught five passes for 110 yards in a 19-14 loss to Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

Way has now gone over 100 yards two games in a row for the Jaguars. Most of his yardage came on an 81-yard hookup with Cole Garvin, and it's the second-straight week that he's had a catch of over 70 yards. With his size he should be more of a red-zone target, but despite the big yardage totals he hasn't found the end zone the last two weeks. He'll look to change that next week against Arkansas State.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield was named the Walter Camp Offensive National FBS Player Of The Week after his performance against Oklahoma State on Saturday.

No shock here. Mayfield was ridiculous, throwing for 598 yards and five touchdowns and adding a rushing touchdown as well. There's a real possibility that this performance puts the 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback at the top of the Heisman race, if he wasn't there already. Mayfield and the Sooners have another must-win game next week against TCU.

Northwestern senior WR Macan Wilson snagged five passes for 107 yards in a 31-24 overtime victory over Nebraska on Saturday.

It's easily the most productive game of Wilson's season, who had yet to accrue more than 74 yards in a game this year. It is the third of four games that he's caught five passes ore more, however, so he's certainly been a part of the Wildcats offense as a possession receiver. The big play here was a 42-yarder from Clayton Thorson that set up a Northwestern touchdown. Wilson will look to keep up the good work next week against Purdue.

NFLDraftScout's Dane Brugler believes New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott is a worthy target for GMs during April's NFL draft.

"Scott is an immediate mismatch bc of his ability to create a huge strike zone for the QB," Brugler tweeted. Our own Josh Norris recently wrote about Scott's red zone skills, as he is one of the nation's leaders in touchdowns in that area of the field. Scott boasts a ridiculous build at 6-foot-6 and 210-pounds and uses all of it to win in contested situations.

Oklahoma State senior WR James Washington sported a walking boot on Monday.

Per HC Mike Gundy, the hope is that Washington can kick the boot by Tuesday or Wednesday and test the ankle on Wednesday. The Cowboys would obviously like to see Washington on the practice field in advance of Saturday's game against Iowa State. Washington ranks No. 3 in Big 12 history with 4,056 receiving yards (he needs 530 receiving yards to move into first place). He's second in the FBS with 1,133 yards this season and the only Power 5 receiver with more than 40 catches who's averaging 20-plus yards per reception. The Cowboys would lean more heavily on Marcell Ateman, Jalen McCleskey, Tyron Johnson and Chris Lacy against the Cyclones if Washington can't go.

UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen (concussion) told reporters on Wednesday that he expects to play this weekend against Arizona State.

"Yeah, absolutely," Rosen said. "I feel great." Rosen suffered the concussion a few weeks ago against Washington and missed last week's loss against Utah. Rosen also told reporters that he'll play in a bowl game if UCLA becomes eligible. After the Sun Devils, the 4-5 Bruins finish with USC and California. They need to win two of those three games to reach the postseason. Rosen will almost assuredly declare for the 2018 NFL Draft after the season. He's likely to be a top-five pick.

Buffalo senior WR Anthony Johnson had eight receptions for 160 yard and two touchdowns in Tuesday's 38-28 win over Bowling Green.

Johnson's latest big game leaves him with 1,048 receiving yards, the sixth 1,000-yard receiving season in Buffalo history. Johnson (6'2/196) is the fourth Bull to reach the 1,000-yard receiving milestone. He's a big reason why the Bulls still have a chance to go bowling. Now 4-6, Buffalo has games remaining at Ball State and Ohio. Win both, and the Bulls will go bowling for the first time since 2013.

New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Our own Josh Norris recently wrote up Scott's game as the receiver is one of the nation's best redzone pass catchers. He has a trump card, and that is elevating and winning in contested catches with fluid body control and length. Now, questions arise in the other 80 yards of the field, but Scott already has a translatable skill.

According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, Giants co-owner John Mara directed the team's front office to closely evaluate the draft's top quarterbacks.

Apparently, the direction was handed down when it was clear the Giants would not be winning anything this year. Raanan adds Marc Ross, who is a personnel executive for the Giants, traveled to evaluate UCLA's Josh Rosen in recent weeks. Eli Manning is approaching 37-years-old and the Giants invested a third-round pick in Davis Webb, but an early quarterback selection could definitely be in their future. It is important to note all area scouts evaluate quarterbacks in their region, but getting higher-ups involved this early in the process in noteworthy.

Washington senior WR Dante Pettis was one of four finalists announced on Thursday for the Hornung Award.

It isn't a big surprise, considering that the award goes to the most versatile player in college football. Not only is Pettis (6'1/185) one of the better receivers in the country, he broke the record for most returns for touchdowns in a career last week against Oregon (Nine). The other nominees are Penn State's Saquon Barkley, North Carolina STate's Nyheim Hines, and Iowa State's Joel Lanning,
