Oregon junior DB Avery Patterson suffered an apparent left knee injury in Saturday's game against Cal.

No details have been given since, but Patterson was in obvious pain while being helped to the locker room. It appeared to be a non-contact injury when Patterson was attempting to tackle Cal senior running back Isi Sofele, but a cut took him down instead. The junior had been playing some really good football in the last few weeks.

The "perception around the league" is the Falcons are interested in Clemson supplemental draft T Isaiah Battle, according to Giants' beat writer Jordan Raanan.

As Raanan put it, Atlanta is "hot on Isaiah Battle's trail." Josh Norris took an extended look at Battle's play and was not impressed, citing a lack of strength/anchor in pass protection along with balance and waist bending issues. Some have mentioned a third- or fourth-round selection, which seems a bit rich. We expect Battle to be selected, but the question is how early. Any team that uses a supplemental draft selection loses that same pick in the following draft.

Baylor junior DT Andrew Billings "has a chance to be big time," according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

"Quick, strong with explosive upper body power. Impressive tape," Weidl tweeted. The talent evaluator notes Billings does not have a lot of pass rushing production (which is common for interior defensive linemen), "but there is plenty of upside" which is evident in Baylor's game against West Virginia. With defensive tackles, it is always worth pointing out disruption equals production.

Michigan graduate DL Ondre Pipkins is considering Missouri, Texas Tech and Kansas as transfer destinations, according to Joe Schad.

Pipkins recently vocalized his frustrations with the new Michigan staff, saying he was pressured to sign a waiver that would end his playing career and allow his scholarship to be freed. The one time coveted recruit has a long injury history, including a torn ACL. He will be eligible to play immediately.

Navy football officially joins The American Athletic Conference on July 1.

Navy is now the 12th member of the conference's list of football teams. The Midshipmen will be in the West division, with Houston, Memphis, SMU, Tulane and Tulsa. The East includes Cincinnati, ECU, Temple, UCF, UConn and USF. Navy was previously among the Independents and should field a quality team with QB Keenan Reynolds leading the way.

The NFL Supplemental Draft is scheduled for July 9.

This year's summer draft will be focused on one prospect: Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle. The Tiger started 11 of 12 games last season at left tackle and could be the first supplemental selection since 2012. Some have mentioned a third or fourth-round pick being used, but we don't see a player worthy of that draft capital and that team would then lose the same round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

ESPN's Alex Scarbrough pegged junior LB Reuben Foster as Alabama's breakout candidate.

Foster has shined on special teams through two seasons, making highlight reel tackles with an old school mentality. Now Foster is expected to transition to weakside linebacker next to Reggie Ragland. Scarbrough does point out that Foster needs to stay healthy, as "lowering his head too often... has ended in quite a few visits with the training staff."

Suspended FSU freshman QB De'Andre Johnson has been charged with misdemeanor battery after hitting a woman in a bar, according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach.

Johnson was immediately suspended once the original accusation was made on June 25. More information and analysis should be available soon on what this charge means for Johnson's standing with the school and for his future with the team.

Marshall redshirt sophomore Angelo Jean-Louis is moving from the outside into a slot WR role.

"His talent as a receiver is undeniable. His physical gifts are plentiful," beat writer Derek Redd writes. As a redshirt freshman, Jean-Louis started eight games on the outside and caught 21 passes for 490 yards (23.3 ypc) and six touchdowns. That yards per catch average should drop drastically in the slot, but Jean-Louis could be option No. 2 in this offense behind running back Devon Johnson.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline calls Michigan State redshirt senior DT Joel Heath "very underrated."

"Ability to occupy blockers creates opportunities," Pauline wrote. "Good mid-to-late round value." Heath, a fifth-year senior, moved inside from defensive end during bowl practices in 2013. Last year, the rangy 6-foot-6, 296-pounder had career highs in tackles (29), TFL (five for 22 yards) and sacks (2.5 for 19 yards).

LSU coach Les Miles dismissed redshirt freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao due to his recent arrest.

Lealaimatafao allegedly hit a woman outside a bar when she attempted to stop him from robbing her unconscious boyfriend. After getting arrested, Miles suspended Lealaimatafao. Since then, his staff has "gathered more information and feel it's best for us to part ways." Lealaimatafao, a San Antonio native and former four-star recruit, should draw some interest on the transfer circuit.

Pittsburgh DC Josh Conklin believes his CBs need to play with "a lot of swag."

Conklin is entering his first season with Pitt after coaching with FIU and helping turn that defense into a top 35 unit by some measurements. Whereas many collegiate defenses utilize off corners, Conklin takes a different approach. "We’re going to play on the line of scrimmage 95 percent of the time with the corners, so you better be able to bring it and bring it every single day," he told ESPN's David Hale. The position should be emphasized under Conklin's coaching.
