Illinois DC Hardy Nickerson has been promoted to assistant head coach.

Nickerson retains his defensive coordinator position, but also gets the beefed-up title. The former Pro Bowl linebacker has been the defensive coordinator at Illinois since 2016, coming over from Tampa Bay when Lovie Smith was named head coach of the Illini. He also coaches linebackers, a position he played for the Steelers, Buccaneers, Jaguars and Packers.

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler lists West Georgia T Desmond Harrison as one of the players that will need to interview well at the combine.

Harrison became one of the non-FBS stars of the class this year, but does not come without controversy. He weighed 279 at the Senior Bowl on top of his 6-foot-7 frame, but he posted a clip of him weighing in at 299. It's not his weight that causes the most concern for Harrison, however. "Prior to West Georgia, Harrison was a top junior college recruit at Texas, but he couldn’t find the field due to multiple failed drug tests and a "pattern of lazy behavior" according to someone close to the situation," writes Brugler. "There is plenty of baggage with this player." While an interview won't completely alleviate said concerns, a strong showing in Indianapolis along with quality interviews will certainly help him remain a potential draft selection.

NFL draft analyst Chad Reuter listed Louisville QB Lamar Jackson as one of his 10 "boom or bust" prospects.

"n my mind, Jackson is worthy of a first-round selection," Reuter writes. "He has a strong arm, is a tenacious leader, and obviously has elite running ability to make defenses pay for playing straight-up man coverage." Other analysts aren't so high on the 2016 Heisman winner, and some have gone so far as to say he profiles best as a wide receiver because of concerns about his accuracy. Still, many have compared Jackson to Michael Vick, and if just one team sees that kind of talent in the former Louisville star, he's going to go in the first round. You have to at least acknowledge some of the volatility, however.

Football Scoop reports that Oregon plans to hire former Louisville director of high school relations Stephen Field to be the new recruiting coordinator.

Before coaching at Louisville, Field was the tight ends coach at Florida A&M from 2014-2016, as well as the recruiting coordinator. He's also served as a defensive assistant for Miami from 2006-2008.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang lists Washington DT Vita Vea as one of the "must watch" players at the combine.

Not only is Vea a gigantic human (6'4/345), he's also an impressive athlete that played running back in high school. We'll give you a second to imagine what that looked like. Rang hears that behind-the-scenes bets are being played that he'll run the 40-yard dash under five seconds, and that he could "turn heads" with his vertical and bench press. "Often compared to former Oregon star (and five-time Pro Bowler) Haloti Ngata over the past two years, Vea may unleash the kind of workout the NFL has not seen from a defensive lineman of his size since Dontari Poe’s legendary performance six years ago," Rang writes. If that happens, it's hard to see Vea still being on the board after the first dozen picks.

Georgia Tech received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 S Jeremiah Smith.

Smith is ranked as the 101st best wide receiver in the 2019 class by 247 Sports composite rankings. He picks the Yellow Jackets over offers from schools like Cincinnati, Iowa State, Indiana and West Virginia, just to name a few. Reports indicate that the three-star safety has quality size (6'2/180) and does a nice job breaking on the football.
