Scouts looking for a Black Friday special on pass rushers would have been wise to check out Missouri's 21-14 victory over Arkansas, where Tigers Shane Ray and Markus Golden and Razorback Trey Flowers each demonstrated the skill-set to warrant top 64 consideration.
The redshirt junior told Jim Rome in an interview Monday that "there's a really good chance" that Saturday's victory over rival Southern California will be his last game against the Trojans.

The Jaguars (and Oakland Raiders) are big fans of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Not that the clubs want to select either quarterback after investing in the position last spring.
