Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that he has spoken with "at least a dozen" sources in the evaluating community who do not view Alabama T Jonah Williams as a top-10 pick.

Pauline, himself, has voiced consistent skepticism over Williams' worth as a potential top-10 selection and wanted to canvass about to see if he was on an island. At least from those he spoke with, that would not appear to be the case. Explained the analyst, "The earliest grade I’ve received on him is the mid-first round, while some project him as a second-round selection." Pauline also passes along that the consensus view among those he has spoken with is that Williams' best fit at the NFL level will come at guard, rather than tackle, writing that the 6-foot-5, 301-pounder is "superb fundamentally but lacks the athleticism, agility and footwork to stay at left tackle on Sundays." These notes -- especially when it comes to Williams' future position -- will be worth keeping in mind as the predraft process deepens.

Arkansas State hired Western Michigan LB coach Dave Duggan to serve as defensive coordinator.

Duggan will be taking over for Joe Cauthen, who earlier left to take the defensive-coordinating position under Dana Holgorsen at Houston. He has spent the past three seasons at Western Michigan and earlier served on the staffs of Southern Miss (2008-11, 2013-15) and North Carolina (2012), among others. This will not be his first go-round as defensive coordinator, as he likewise served in that capacity during his second stint with Southern Miss. He also has earlier experience at that position below the FBS level.

Texas redshirt sophomore RB Toneil Carter transferred to Sam Houston State.

Carter (5'11/210) rushed for 252 yards and three touchdowns across nine games played during his inaugural season on campus in 2017, after signing on with the Longhorns as a four-star recruit, but he was unable to crack the field for even a singular carry during the just-completed campaign. He'll be receiving a redshirt for the season. At Sam Houston State, Carter will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2019 season.

Clemson sophomore QB Trevor Lawrence was named the winner of the Archie Griffin Award.

Unlike the bulk of awards handed out for the 2018 campaign, the Archie Griffin (essentially the CFB season's MVP) is not bestowed until after the conclusion of the bowl slate. Thus how Trevor Lawrence -- who was never seriously in conversation with Tua Tagovailoa or Kyler Murray for the Heisman as the fall wound down -- can come away victorious for the honor. He dazzled the CFB world with his 347-yard, three-touchdown torching of Alabama in the National Championship Game earlier this month and is going to enter the 2019 season as a short-list favorite for the Heisman.

Arkansas redshirt senior WR La'Michael Pettway announced he'll leave Arkansas as a graduate transfer.

Pettway will be able to play immediately for his final season at whatever institution he lands at. In a season that was chalk full of disappointments, Pettway showed some flashes of brilliance in his redshirt junior season; catching 30 passes for 499 yards with four touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 219-pound wideout won't be a star, but should help someone's receiver rotation -- potentially as a starter -- in 2019.

Bet Online currently installs Clemson sophomore QB Trevor Lawrence as the favorite to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy.

Lawrence currently has 3/1 odds to win the award, with Alabama signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa just behind at 4/1. It's also interesting to see that Jalen Hurts -- Tagovailoa's backup who is currently likely to transfer -- is third at 9/1. Lawrence was very impressive in his first year as the starter, and considering Clemson returns essentially everything on offense, he should be even better in 2019.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller mocks Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray to the Jacksonville Jaguars with the seventh pick in his latest mock draft.

There are still questions about whether or not Murray is going to play football, but based on all of the reports/the fact that he did declare for the draft, it sure seems like that's what's going to happen. Miller points out that many scouts aren't sold that the quarterback is a first-round talent, but the shift to more wide-open offenses and the success of players like Baker Mayfield open up doors, potentially. The Jaguars clearly need a quarterback -- sorry, Blake -- and with Murray's speed and accuracy, he could be the long-term answer despite his 5-foot-9 (likely) height.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes that North Dakota State QB Easton Stick struggled on Monday during practice for the East-West Shrine Game.

Ledyard goes so far as to say that Stick was the worst of the six quarterbacks he saw on Monday. "Stick consistently misfired, through [sic] the wrong route once, waited far too long to pull the trigger in 1v1s and let a semi-high snap go through his hands," he writes. There has been a lot of hype involving Stick -- and this is just one practice -- but this was essentially the consensus of what analysts saw from the signal-caller on Monday. Here's hoping he's much better going forward.

Redshirt senior QB Brandon Wimbush announced that he'll transfer to UCF.

Wimbush leaves Notre Dame with his degree, so he's immediately eligible to play. The former starter for the Fighting Irish visited Central Florida last weekend, and that visit must have gone well. There's lots of intrigue here, but perhaps the most interesting piece is that UCF has a star quarterback in McKenzie Milton, but Milton is recovering from a significant knee injury suffered in the final regular season game. If Milton is healthy, he's the starter. If he can't, they have a very strong option in Wimbush who can run with the very best of them. Very interesting, indeed.

Matt Zenitz of AL.com reports that former Rutgers HC Kyle Flood is a candidate for the OL coaching job at Alabama.

Interesting. Flood was fired from Rutgers after a less-than-spectacular run with the school that also caused him to have a show-cause penalty through 2018. It's now 2019, and Flood is currently an assistant offensive line coach with the Falcons. It could be another reclamation project for Nick Saban, one who has had some success as a position coach at both levels.

Redshirt sophomore RB Morgan Ellison has transferred into Independence Community College from Indiana.

Ellison was dismissed from the Hoosiers and given a two and a half year suspension from the university after a panel determined that the running back sexually assaulted a student while she slept. If Independence Community College sounds familiar, it's the school that is currently featured in the hit Netflix series Last Chance U.

ESPN's Chris Low reports that former USC OC Tee Martin has agreed to join the Tennessee staff.

In what exact role has yet to be determined, as there isn't technically an opening on the coaching staff. Martin was let go by USC after their 5-7 season, but was once considered a potential rising star in the coaching industry. It's a return home for the coach, as he was the starting QB that led Tennessee to a championship in the firt year of the BCS. He's a dynamite recruiter, so this could be a great addition for the Vols.
