Purdue junior QB Elijah Sindelar (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's contest with Missouri.

Sindelar (6'4/225) sustained the undisclosed injury concern during Wednesday's practice, it would appear, and he was not spotted during the open media window on Thursday. Said Boilermakers HC Jeff Brohm, "We'll let it play out until gametime." The junior signal-caller has gotten off to a slow start this year -- he's been self-critical regarding his deep ball -- having passed for 283 yards with a lackluster two touchdowns (against three interceptions) in two games played. If Sindelar is unable to give it a go on Saturday, it'll be David Blough taking the start versus the Tigers.

Miami DT Gerald Willis (undisclosed) won't be able to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

It's never good when a player has to miss an event like this, but one who has been as impressive as Willis in his collegiate career is especially a bummer. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound defender says he'll prepare for testing in the combine, so the good news -- so far -- is that it doesn't sound like a long-term injury. He currently projects as a Day 2 pick, one who could easily be off the board before the end of the second round.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler believes that Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat is the top prospect playing at the Senior Bowl.

That honor would have gone to Josh Allen, but since the Kentucky edge rusher pulled out of the event, Sweat gets Brugler's top grade. He was as key of reason as any that Mississippi State had the top defense in the country last year, piling up 22 sacks and 29 tackles for loss. Brugler notes his quick first step and length (6'6/241) and that he's flexible enough to beat tackles around the edge. He's also a solid run defender, although there are more questions about that part of his game than his pass-rushing skills. "There is a logjam of different "types" of edge rushers in the first round," Brugler writes, "and Sweat will have an opportunity to separate himself from the pack in Mobile."

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Mississippi State DC Bob Shoop received a two-year contract extension.

It's not known how much the contract extension is for at this time, but you would have to assume this will make him among the highest paid defensive coordinators. The Bulldogs finished with the top defense in the country last year, and helped Mississippi State win eight games while reaching the Outback Bowl.

Penn State signed four-star 2019 DT D'Von Ellies.

Ellies actually signed on in December, but wanted to announce his commitment at the Polynesian Bowl, and announce he did. He was considered a lean for the Nittany Lions for quite some time, but he also was considering Ohio State and USC; among other high-profile schools. The 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive tackle ranks 10th in 247 Sports list at the position, and while he'll need to add strength, he could be a potential rotation player immediately for Penn State.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller mocks three quarterbacks to go in the top ten of his latest mock draft.

Miller just projects the top ten in his instagram post, but there are three quarterbacks who go: Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins to the Giants at six, Duke's Daniel Jones to the Jaguars at seven, and Missouri's Drew Lock to the Broncos with the 10th selection. On his latest podcast, Miller here's that scouts believe there should be four quarterbacks taken in the top 15, with Kyler Murray likely that fourth signal-caller. There's a ton of volatility in this class, but there are teams that need answers there, and that quantity/quality should match-up in quite a few going early in 2019.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller mentioned on his Stick To Football podcast that Alabama RB Damien Harris has fallen to a third-round grade in the eyes of scouts.

Harris lost snaps to Josh Jacobs at Alabama as the season progressed, and scouts were also not happy that the 5-foot-11, 215-pound tailback declined an invite to the Reese's Senior Bowl. Some had Harris as the top tailback in this class and the only running back who had a chance to go in the first round, but now that seems more likely to be Jacobs, who goes sixth in NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah's mock. Harris could be a steal in that area, but there are clearly more questions than answers right now.

Redshirt freshman S Jordan Moore transferred from Texas A&M to Houston.

Moore was a four-star signing for Texas A&M in 2018, and played mostly on special teams for the Aggies in his four games. He'll have to sit out the 2019 season unless he gets a waiver, but because of the new rules, he'll be able to count last year as a redshirt season, and he'll have three more years of eligibility.

ESPN's Todd McShay calls Missouri QB Drew Lock a "poor man's Patrick Mahomes."

Poor man aside, this is obviously high praise for Lock (6'4/225). McShay notes that Lock had to make some adjustments in his first year in a pro-style offense, and there were some bumps in the road. He also notes that there is no denying Lock's talent, while noting he does need to improve his footwork to help with his accuracy. " He is the most naturally gifted of the Senior Bowl quarterbacks," McShay closes, "and I think he has the most to gain during the week."

Georgia LB D'Andre Walker won't be able to play in the Senior Bowl.

Walker suffered a groin injury late in the 2018 season, and it kept him out of the Sugar Bowl loss to Texas. The hope is that he'll be ready for the combine, as the 6-foot-3, 251-pound defender is considered one of the better pass-rushing linebackers in this class.

LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow was spotted in a sling.

Burrow (6'4/216) played well in LSU's bowl win on New Year's Day, so this is likely a minor injury that won't affect his 2019 offseason at all. At least that's what The Advocate's Brooks Kubena is hearing from LSU staff. As a redshirt junior in 2018, Burrow passed for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he began to show more upside later in the season. Burrow should surpass these stats in 2019, assuming he's healthy.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that NFL general managers and scouts believe 70 of the 100 players in the 2019 NFL Draft are defensive players.

The NFL considers this offensive class one of the worst "in a long time" and it's not surprising to walk away with this impression if you spend any time looking at analysts' big boards. A ton of the first-round prospects are defensive lineman, and there's not a lot of top-end talent at running back, among other offensive positions. Most draft analysts aren't impressed with the quarterback class either, so this could be a year where some teams stockpile picks in anticipation for the 2020 NFL Draft.
