Charges resulting from the arrest of Antavian Edison were dropped.

Edison was arrested on May 6 and faced a felony weapons charge. The school issued a release quoting coach Danny Hope as saying that what he believed all along is that Edison was "…..in the wrong place at the wrong time." Edison’s 584 receiving yard led the Boilermakers last season.

Northwestern senior RB Justin Jackson didn't submit paperwork to the NFL's college advisory committee.

Jackson wasn't at all interested in bolting for the NFL after capping off his third straight 1,000-yard campaign. "I felt like it was in my best interests to come back and fine-tune my skills," he said. "Plus, I've put so much work into this whole school thing, I figured I might as well finish it out." Only eight players in FBS history have ever recorded four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Jackson sits at 4,485 career rushing yards heading into his last season. He hopes he won't get dinged for his heavy workload when he enters the NFL next season. "I have no idea how NFL scouts think," he said. "But hopefully they'll look at my production and the fact that I haven’t missed any games, and I hope that can be a plus."

Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly will not travel to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine, according to his agent Vance McAllister.

Kelly's agents McAllister and Duray Oubre previously considered sending Kelly to the Combine, but have decided against it. McAllister says his appeal letter to the NFL has gone unanswered. The NFL initially included Kelly on its list of Combine invitees, only to reverse course in a second draft. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told Kelly's agents that their client fell within the letter of the NFL's rule that bars players from attending "if a background check reveals a conviction of a felony or misdemeanor involving violence or use of a weapon, domestic violence, sexual offense and/or sexual assault." Kelly was charged with multiple misdemeanors following an altercation with officers in 2015. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Kelly hopes to work out for scouts at Ole Miss' Pro Day in Oxford on April 3.

Duke redshirt senior QB Thomas Sirk (Achilles) will transfer as a graduate.

Sirk suffered three torn Achilles tendons while at Duke. The most recent, suffered to his left one last summer, earned Sirk a sixth season of eligibility. The issue with that is that it also allowed Daniel Jones to steal his starting quarterback job last season. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Sirk passed for 2,625 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2015.

NFL Media's Mike Mayock compares Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer to Philip Rivers.

"I think he has the most upside (in the QB draft class), the highest ceiling. But he is 12-11 as a starter at Notre Dame. He played a lot of bad football with the game on the line in the fourth quarter this year. That is not acceptable," Mayock said. "But he is 6-foot-5, 235. He has that kind of prototypical franchise quarterback look, a Philip Rivers type ... if he gets everything right." Like Rivers, Kizer could also use some time to marinate on the bench while developing. Rivers threw only 30 passes in his first two NFL seasons. Kizer will be at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this week.

Rutgers redshirt senior QB Chris Laviano transferred to San Diego State as a graduate transfer.

As a graduate, Laviano is immediately eligible to play at SDSU as a fifth-year senior. Laviano began last year as starter before losing the job to Gio Rescigno in October. The 6-foot-2 Laviano passed for 3,102 yards and a 21/15 TD/INT rate at Rutgers over 24 games.

Arizona freshman DE My-King Johnson will become the first active openly gay scholarship player in the FBS.

Johnson told his story on Saturday to the Arizona Daily Star. The 6-foot-4-inch, 225-pound 17-year-old came out to friends and family when he was 12. Now, he becomes the FBS' first active scholarship player to have come out publicly. "I do feel like when I say that, it can put a target on my back," Johnson said. "But whatever." A few years ago, Missouri’s Michael Sam came out after he entered the NFL Draft. Arizona State walk-on Chip Sarafin came out in 2014.

Fox Sports' Peter Schrager believes the 49ers go the QB "route" with the No. 2 pick.

Schrager projects DeShone Kizer for the pick, but the position rather than the player is what matters here. Schrager says Brian Hoyer or Matt Schaub could be brought in "to keep the seat warm." Our own Josh Norris has ranked Kizer as the No. 1 quarterback in the draft for some time, but we are surprised by how many share that sentiment: Schrager, Daniel Jeremiah and Mike Mayock, to name a few.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said the team is open to any position in the first round except for quarterback.

"We’ll go for the best player," Lewis said. "And we’ll get a really good player and hopefully the guy will have a strong, healthy career." Overall, it is not a surprise that the Bengals will bypass quarterback in the first round, but the mindset of being complacent at the position is interesting. Andy Dalton is not among the top players at his spot, and his contract is very team friendly. If the Bengals wanted to pursue a better option, although that is easier said then done, Dalton's contract is easy to move on from. But the Bengals remain certain Dalton is their guy.

The MMQB's Peter King suggests UConn DB Obi Melifonwu could run in the low 4.4s at the NFL Combine.

This would open up a transition to corner. Tall safeties who have length and can run will always be viewed by some teams as corners, since the latter is considered a premium position and the contracts back it up. Plus, those types are difficult to find. Look at Damarious Randall, plus many teams viewed T.J. Green as a corner last year. "I know NFL guys who think, ‘I’d love to try him [at corner]. Let’s see if he fails,’" Mike Mayock told Peter King. Melifonwu stands at 6-foot-4 and 219-pounds.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock believes Wisconsin edge rusher T.J. Watt has a similar game to Clay Matthews.

Mayock calls the comparison "easy" since Watt is an "edge who can drop in coverage and has a motor that just won’t stop." We would point to Clay Matthews' outstanding athleticism as a major tool in why he is successful in the NFL, including a 10 yard split of 1.49 seconds and above-average scores in every other test, especially 3-cone and the short shuttle. Will Watt match those testing numbers? We know his brother put on a show in Indianapolis.
