Good thing for the Florida State Seminoles that freshman quarterback Jameis Winston isn't eligible for the NFL draft. If he were, he'd probably be the first overall pick. Or at least that's what one NFL scout told me earlier this week. The scout said he is not allowed to talk publicly about players who are not eligible for the draft, but he did offer me this comment under the condition of anonymity: "Rarely, do you see a quarterback at Winston's age who has the combination of size, speed, arm strength and field awareness that he has," the scout said. "He's a bigger, stronger, faster version of (Louisville's) Teddy Bridgewater." The scout went on to say that obviously it would depend on which team has the No. 1 pick, but he said ANY team in need of a quarterback would "absolutely move up" if they had a chance to draft Winston. Translation: Enjoy Famous Jameis while while you can, Seminole fans. Players can enter the NFL t...

Heisman Forecast: For Winston another crucial game awaits

A year ago, Geno Smith was the Heisman Trophy favorite as we reached the season's midpoint -- but we all know how that turned out. Even the player who took the lead from him, Collin Klein, didn't leave Times Square in December with the 25-pound chunk of history in hand. The point here, is that while it looks like the trophy is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota's to...

Heismanic Week 9: 10 names that could just be 3

I’ve got to admit that I’m disappointed in my readers.

SEC honks say "We want the Duckies"

Al.com columnist Kevin Scarbinsky thinks Florida State would be a much tougher matchup for Alabama than the Oregon Ducks. If the choices are Oregon or Florida State, the two teams who've swapped the No. 2 BCS ranking behind Alabama the last two weeks, it's no choice. Give the Tide the Ducks. Why?
