Brugler: Week 11 Draft Stock Report - Johnson catching eye of Heisman voters, NFL scouts

  There is a list of reasons why Auburn knocked off No. 1 ranked Georgia, but Johnson belongs at the top of the list. The junior posted 233 yards of total offense (167 yards rushing, 66 yards receiving) and became the first player this season to rush for over 100 yards against...Read More

First and 20: Auburn streaking toward CFP spot

   Alabama is unbeaten, No. 1 in the polls and gets everyone's benefit of the doubt. On Saturday, though, it was the Crimson Tide's state rival that looked the part of the national champion. Auburn, sitting with two losses while quietly drafting off the college football rankings leaders, is ready to slingshot past the traffic and make a pedal-to-the-metal run...Read More

Brugler: Week 10 Draft Stock Report - Pair of Baker's moving in opposite directions

  For the third time this season, Jackson appears in this spot as a "riser" and a NFL prospect who is only helping himself in the eyes of NFL scouts. He picked off Ohio State's J.T. Barrett three times on Saturday, including his best Odell Beckham Jr. impression with a spectacular one-handed interception to finish the game. Jackson, who now leads the FBS...Read More

Rang: Draft watch - Hyatt quiets critics, N.C. State's Chubb

   On a day in which Bedlam ruled in the Big 12, Iowa shocked Ohio State in the Big Ten and Alabama-LSU continued the fiercest and most physical rivalry in the SEC, it was a one-on-one showdown between highly regarded ACC prospects that might wind up impacting draft rankings and the college football playoff more than any other...Read More

Rob Rang's Nov 1 Mock Draft

   Bold trades by the San Francisco 49ers (QB Jimmy Garoppolo), Philadelphia Eagles (RB Jay Ajayi), Seattle Seahawks (OT Duane Brown) and Buffalo Bills (WR Kelvin Benjamin) just before the deadline are the talk of the NFL, with each club hoping that their new addition will translate into immediate wins. For most of the teams in the league, however, adding significant talent to the roster won't occur until...Read More

Brugler: Week 9 Draft Stock Report - Top OL draft prospect on the rise

  Led by a productive run game, the Irish are in a strong position to win out and capture a spot in the College Football Playoff. Junior running back Josh Adams, who ranks fifth in the FBS with 1,169 rushing yards, is in the Heisman discussion, but the best player on the Notre Dame roster is Nelson. Interior offensive linemen rarely receive...Read More

Rang: Draft watch - Rosen hurt, Vea shines

   The Washington-UCLA game was billed as a showdown between projected first-round NFL draft picks. It ended up as a lopsided 44-23 victory for the Huskies, featuring standout defensive tackle Vita Vea. The visiting Bruins, meanwhile, lost star quarterback Josh Rosen to injury. Rosen, NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated junior quarterback, was bloodied in the third quarter and watched the rest of the game in...Read More

Brugler: Week 8 Draft Stock Report

  For the first time this season, Oklahoma State was shut out through the air with zero passing scores, and the Texas secondary deserves credit for that, notably Hill. The junior has terrific size and is one of the best tackling cornerbacks in the country, coming to balance in space and striking with pop to finish physical tackles. Hill is quick to recognize the run with the drive mechanics to click and close, throwing...Read More

Rang: NFL prospects leading undefeated Miami's resurgence

  The Miami Hurricanes, undefeated and ranked eighth in the nation, are one of the best stories at the midway point of the 2017 season. Head coach Mark Richt and his staff deserve plenty of credit for Miami's return to prominence, but it is not simply the X's and O's delivering for the 'Canes. The sheer talent that for so long personified "The U" appears to have returned...Read More

Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Michigan's Hurst could be No. 1 senior

  With the Michigan offense struggling to put together a complete game, the Wolverines' defense has had to carry the team this season, led by Hurst on the defensive line. Against Indiana, he posted six tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 0.5 sack and a blocked field goal, but, as is often the case, the box score doesn't do him justice...Read More

Rang: LSU's Chark picks perfect time to Flash elite skills

  At LSU, wearing the No. 7 jersey is a big deal. It is the same jersey that previous superstars Leonard Fournette, Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson (among others) have made famous in the Bayou before taking their talents to the NFL. Behind a breakout performance...Read More

Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Damien Harris running like the SEC's top running back

  It is tough for an Alabama running back to be "underrated" but that seems to be the case with Harris, sharing the backfield duties with Bo Scarbrough. In three games this season against SEC competition, Harris is averaging 10.4 yards per carry (33 carries for 342 yards and four touchdowns...Read More

First and 20: Lone Star State rises again

  The state of the state of Texas football was bad last season. How bad was it? Texas fired third-year coach Charlie Strong amid his third consecutive losing season. Yet another Texas A&M November fade put Kevin Sumlin on one of the hottest of coaching hot seats. Even steady-as-it-goes TCU fell off to its second losing record in four seasons...Read More

Rob Rang's Big Board: Barkley No. 1?

  The NFL's stance on the national anthem may be the most controversial issue in sports today but for scouts tasked with finding the league's next superstar, the bigger debate might center on just which underclassman deserves to be ranked No. 1 overall. Quarterbacks are logical candidate with Southern Cal's Sam Darnold, UCLA's Josh Rosen...Read More

Stanford's Love looms for No. 20 Utah

  Can any defense stop Bryce Love? That's the question No. 20 Utah will try to answer when it hosts Stanford on Saturday. The Utes (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) will send out the Pac-12's top rushing defense against the nation's top running back. If Utah finds a way to contain the junior, it will be mapping uncharted territory...Read More

Rang: Falk upstages Darnold, guides WSU to upset over No. 5 USC

  In a highly anticipated showdown between two signal callers with NFL potential, it was Washington State senior Luke Falk -- and not consensus top-rated prospect Sam Darnold from USC -- who enjoyed the more impressive Friday night, guiding the Cougars to a...Read More

Brugler: Draft Stock Report - Barkley-Jewell matchup results in boost

  Already considered a top-10 pick, Barkley doesn't have much room to ascend, but he is making a strong case to be considered the best talent, regardless of position, for the 2018 NFL Draft. On Saturday night in Iowa, he touched the ball 40 times for a career-best...Read More

First and 20: Georgia's Fromm leads freshman QB invasion

  Nothing is more treasured to a college football team than experience at quarterback. Well, at least that used to be something people said. More true freshman quarterbacks than ever are arriving at the intersection of Readiness and Opportunity, and we're only a season...Read More

Rob Rang: N.C State's Chubb stars, Florida State's James stumbles

  Led by pro prospects Bradley Chubb and Jaylen Smith, North Carolina State outlasted No. 12 Florida State in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday, winning 27-21 in a contest sure to shake up the polls and potentially NFL scouts' rankings. Chubb, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 1...Read More

Dane Brugler - Stock Report: Scouts excited over progress of QB Fitzgerald

  Replacing arguably the best player in program history is an unenviable task, but Fitzgerald has embraced that challenge. Last season as a redshirt sophomore, he did an admirable job as a first-year starter in the SEC, posting 37 total touchdowns (21 passing, 16 rushing)...Read More

Rob Rang's Big Board: Clemson defenders on the rise

  Deshaun Watson and an extraordinary group of draft-eligible skill position talent earned the spotlight last season for the national champion Clemson Tigers. Quarterback Kelly Bryant is making his own waves but if the Tigers return to their third consecutive title game, it will be difference-makers along the line of line of scrimmage -- third-year stars...Read More

Gimino: Week 3, First and 20 - Clemson has another star QB in Bryant

   About the only thing most people knew in the offseason about Kelly Bryant was that he wasn't Deshaun Watson. That's where the doubts about Clemson repeating as the national champion began. Bryant wasn't Deshaun Watson. Nobody was Deshaun Watson. That was kind of the problem. No Deshaun Watson, no national title. Three games into...Read More

Rang: Rudolph shows NFL form in rout

   Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph made a strong statement to Heisman voters and NFL scouts Saturday, throwing for 423 yards and five touchdowns in the first half as the visiting Cowboys crushed Pittsburgh 59-21. Rudolph, NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated senior quarterback, was replaced by backup quarterback Taylor Cornelius after Oklahoma State's first drive of the second half. The Cowboys were leading 56-14...Read More

Game of the Week: Clemson at Louisville

   Big games don't faze Clemson coach Dabo Swinney. In fact, he relishes meetings like the one his third-ranked Tigers face Saturday when they open Atlantic Coast Conference play at No. 14 Louisville. Kickoff time is 8 p.m. ET for the a nationally televised (ABC) clash of Atlantic Division contenders at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. "Louisville is an outstanding team and that's a difficult place to play," Swinney said. "But it's...Read More

Rob Rang's Sept 13 Mock Draft

   The 2017 NFL and NCAA seasons just began, but already NFLDraftScout.com is peeking ahead to the spring and to the incoming crop of rookies. After all, on Tuesday the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced 108 preliminary, modern era nominees for the Class of 2018, so it is time to find potential future NFL stars -- as the beat goes on. A year ago it was obvious that an exciting new...Read More

Week 2: Dane Brugler - Mayfield plants his flag to be the top-rated senior QB

   After the Sooners were defeated handedly by the Buckeyes last year, Oklahoma marched into Columbus last Saturday and defeated a very talented Ohio State squad. Urban Meyer's squad was out-played and out-coached, but the most noticeable difference was one team had a playmaker at quarterback, the other team didn't....Read More

First and 20: Sooners deliver statement by slaying Buckeyes

   Filed under things we did not think we'd see: Casual Bob Stoops, shirt untucked, standing in a suite at Ohio Stadium, first-pumping the play of the Oklahoma Sooners in their victory over Ohio State. Now, a lot of that wouldn't have made sense entering the summer, but Stoops' stunning retirement cleared the way for precocious Lincoln...Read More
