Iowa senior CB Micah Hyde was arrested early on Saturday morning on counts of public intoxication and interference with official acts.

Details have not been disclosed, but Hyde remained in jail as of 8:30 Saturday morning. The senior is a legitimate third-day selection in the 2013 Draft, especially since evaluators seem to favor Hawkeye prospects for their readiness and work ethic. Iowa is off this week and no announcement has been made regarding a possible suspension for Hyde.

FSU redshirt sophomore Jameis Winston's suspension was increased after FSU officials found out the QB was not fully truthful in his initial telling of the most recent off-field incident, according to CNN's Rachel Nichols.

"Source tells me Jameis Winston originally downplayed his public use of a vulgar phrase to FSU officials, denying he jumped on a table," Nichols tweeted Saturday morning. "Source tells me Winston admitted full story after school came back w/witness accounts." The athletic director Stan Wilcox then increased Winston's suspension to a full game.

Arkansas' offensive line is heavier than any unit on an NFL team this season.

The note was pointed out by Brett McMurphy on ESPN this morning. 10 offensive linemen are listed at 320-plus pounds on the school's site. Head coach Bret Bielema has always relied on the running game, and his belief is a heavier offensive line gets the job done. Many NFL teams are actually getting lighter along the offensive line.

Florida State announced late Friday night that redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston will not play in Saturday's game against Clemson.

The school's statement reads, "based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night." The release was signed by interim president Garnett Stokes and AD Stan Wilcox. Telling. This is obviously a very late change, as Winston was initially suspended for just a half. Sean Maguire will likely play the entire game.

Auburn senior QB Nick Marshall "isn't a legitimate NFL quarterback prospect," writes NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

That said, Brooks believes Marshall is a good enough collegiate QB to potentially help Auburn win the National Championship this year. "From an NFL perspective, Marshall's performance [in Thursday's win against Kansas State] did little to convince scouts that he's a quarterback prospect at the next level," Brooks wrote. "He frequently missed open receivers on a variety of vertical routes that would've put the Tigers comfortably ahead early in the game. In addition, Marshall struggled finding passing lanes against the Wildcats' pass rush, resulting in a number of tipped or batted passes at the line." Because Marshall's accuracy, ball placement and pocket presence aren't NFL-caliber, Brooks sees a shift to safety coming. "He possesses the size to match up with wide receivers and tight ends in space, but also has a solid understanding of offensive concepts, which would help him play faster in the back end," Brooks wrote.

NFL Media's Albert Breer spoke to one area scout assigned to FSU who said redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston "is a fraud."

The scout opened by saying Winston's latest actions will hurt him significantly, especially with the recent events occurring in the league. "You can't believe anything he says, because he keeps doing the same things over and over," the area scout added. "In my mind, there are night-and-day differences between (Johnny) Manziel's and his character concerns. Winston has some serious issues." Breer notes he gets the feeling from NFL people that the image Winston has put forward is "manufactured." We think this situation and the draft process needs to play out. It is September.

Pro Football Focus tabbed redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota with Oregon's top offensive grade in their week two matchup against Michigan State.

In fact, Mariota was the only Oregon player who received a very positive grade, in this case of a 2.6. We should note, These grades are an opinion and an evaluation, but PFF does a great job of watching every play. Of the 2.6 grade, 1.2 was in the passing passing game and 1.3 as a runner. What is noteworthy is PFF only tabbed Mariota with two runs in the whole game. As our own Josh Norris has said, Mariota does not receive enough credit for how comfortable he is in the pocket and he uses athleticism as a passer, not just a runner.

Auburn junior WR D'haquille Williams hauled in eight receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in a 20-14 win versus Kansas State on Thursday.

The JUCO transfer already has 21 catches for 324 yards and two touchdowns through three games. Williams, who goes 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, has impressed us with two traits key to next level projection: Speed and ability to win in contested situations thanks to outstanding hops. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote last week that Williams "could be the big juco breakout newcomer of the season," adding that the newcomer "jumped on my radar last season when he simply destroyed junior college competition for a second straight year at Mississippi Gulf Coast." Back in December, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters he expected to throw more in 2014 thanks to the signing of Williams. He'll continue to do just that.

Texas State redshirt senior LB Mike Orakpo will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL and MCL.

Former Longhorn Brian Orakpo's little brother suffered the injury in last weekend’s loss to Navy. TSU head coach Dennis Franchione described it as "not a pretty sight to see." Michael Orakpo's collegiate career is now over, as he won't be eligible to apply for a sixth season of eligibility. It'll be interesting to see if he garners interest in the draft, as Orakpo is an underperforming freak of an athlete. At 230-plus pounds, he benches 565 pounds, has a vertical of 41.5 inches, and runs a low 4.5 in the 40-yard dash.

Ohio State junior DE Noah Spence is still practicing with the team despite his indefinite suspension.

"Yeah, he actually practiced today," Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. "He's doing things to get healthy, but he's also -- you know, we're supporting him." Spence was suspended for the school's bowl game as well as the first two games of 2014 after testing positive for ecstasy back in January. He was set to return last weekend but failed another drug test, leading to a suspension of indeterminate length. ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg recently reported that it's a "long shot" Spence will be cleared to return. "You know, the only comment I'll make on the whole situation is that it's a tough deal for Noah and his family and we're going to support him the best we can throughout the situation," co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash said Saturday. "If he gets an opportunity to play football again one day, great. But we're here to help him receive the help that he needs."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler spoke with multiple scouts who are more concerned with Jameis Winston's "issues" than Johnny Manziel's.

Brugler agrees with this statement, but adds "I don't like comparing off-field issues among prospects because each is so uniquely diff. They're lumped into similar categories and they shouldn't" be. There is SO much time remaining in the draft process, so it is far too early to determine where Winston might be selected.

Texas Tech DC Matt Wallerstedt has been fired, with OLBS coach Mike Smith taking his position.

Smith had always been listed as the co-defensive coordinator, but the role is now fully his. Fox Sports' David Ubben notes Smith will become the sixth different defensive coordinator in the last seven years. The Red Raiders allowed 35 points to Central Arkansas, 26 to UTEP and 49 to Arkansas.
