In an interview discussing potential Eagles' prospects, SI's Tony Pauline stated that Syracuse senior QB Ryan Nassib "is going to go in that second-round range."

"He's a guy that has shown the ability to play in several different systems," Pauline said. He added that Nassib has the arm strength for the next level and made good decisions throughout his Syracuse career. The senior's draft weekend may end similarly to that of Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick from a few years ago, as an early second-round pick.

Oregon starting senior LT Jake Fisher's knee injury "isn't considered season-ending," reports CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

He suffered a sprained left knee on the opening drive in Saturday's win over Wyoming. "According to a source, he will be sidelined less than a month, which is good news for Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost, who said that he hoped to get Fisher back 'pretty soon,'" Brugler wrote. "Fisher is expected to miss this weekend's game at Washington State, but the coaching staff is hopeful he will be back in the starting lineup for Arizona (October 2) or at UCLA (October 11). He is currently ranked as the No. 8 senior offensive tackle prospect for the 2015 NFL Draft and a possible top-100 pick."

Massachusetts coach Mark Whipple said Penn State sophomore QB Christian Hackenberg will be the No. 1 overall pick when he enters the draft.

"He's going to be the first player picked. If he could come out this year, he'd be the first player picked," Whipple said, adding that Hackenberg "just can make every throw. ... He's just got it all." Whipple was the Steelers' QB coach during Ben Roethlisberger's first three seasons in the league, and he has also been an offensive assistant with the Eagles and Browns (2011-12). Whipple's UMass squad travels to Penn State on Saturday. We'd accuse him of buttering Hackenberg up, but he's not the only one saying these things. A veteran AFC scout said last week that Hackenberg is "the top QB in college football," and NFL.com wrote that he is "generating the most buzz with NFL scouts" amongst quarterbacks.

Ohio State is "preparing to move forward" as if they won't get Ohio State junior DE Noah Spence back for the remainder of the season, reports CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Spence, who was set to return over the weekend from suspension, failed a second drug test. He first failed a drug test for ecstasy back in January. "We are hopeful that Noah can get healthy and, at some point, resume his career with the Buckeyes," Spence's parents said in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch. "We are uncertain how long he will be ineligible, but we will work with Ohio State and the Big Ten until we have a final resolution." The Big Ten handbook states that a student athlete who fails a second drug test "shall be declared permanently ineligible for all further intercollegiate competition in all sports."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports that Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota and junior DE Arik Armstead will both enter the draft after the season.

Both prospects purchased large disability insurance policies prior to the season, which the school ultimately covered. Mariota was always ticketed for the 2015 draft, so we'll instead focus on Armstead. The 6-foot-8, 280-pounder has basketball athleticism and light feet, meaning the mansion of his athletic potential doesn't have an easily perceivable ceiling. We're concerned, however, that he played so poorly as a true sophomore, once called basketball his "first love," and has been eying the 2015 draft for some time now. There are questions about Armstead that only his production can answer. "Armstead isn't as well-known nationally, but he leads the Ducks with 4.0 tackles for loss so far in 2014 and has the gifted skill-set that makes him a projected first round pick," Brugler wrote.

Miami redshirt senior QB Ryan Williams has been cleared by doctors following a right ACL tear this spring.

Brad Kaaya is still entrenched as the starter, but the Canes really lack backup passers after Kevin Olsen's suspension and Jake Heaps' struggles. Williams has played sporadically throughout his career and should not receive a large number of snaps if things go according to plan.

Washington redshirt junior CB Marcus Peters will play against Georgia State after being suspended for the Illinois game.

"We got him back," head coach Chris Petersen said. "He’s back with us. We’ll just take it one day at a time." Peters was suspended as a result of a sideline tirade after he was benched for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Peters is extremely talented, and the Huskies finally put things together defensively against the Illini.

Utah State senior QB Chuckie Keeton will miss Saturday's game against Arkansas State.

Keeton re-injured his left knee against Wake Forest and was forced out of the second half. Head coach Matt Wells did say Keeton did not re-tear his ACL, but the goal is not to rush him along. "Chuckie is fine from a health standpoint," Wells declared. "The ACL is all intact; everything's good. But it's banged up, guys, and that's the bottom line." Utah State has a bye following this matchup, so Keeton will be evaluated at that time. He does not look like the same player this season.

Sports Illustrated reports LSU true freshman DT Travonte Valentine might not play this season even if his eligibility is green-lighted by the SEC.

Valentine has been awaiting his eligibility status after stepping foot on campus in poor high school academic standing. "Valentine, who at one time was purportedly 6-3 and 325 pounds, showed up in Baton Rouge extremely overweight, according to a source," Sports Illustrated reported. "The combination of needing to lose weight and the SEC’s ongoing review of his academic credentials makes him a likely candidate to redshirt this season." Valentine was cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse late last month, a decision that shocked many. "If Travonte Valentine qualifies there’s something wrong," a source said, saying Valentine had very few high school credits entering his junior year. "It’s not humanly possible." The athletic 6-foot-3, 325-pounder was rated as the No. 34 overall player in his class by 247Sports.com.

Clemson senior edge rusher Vic Beasley believes he is better than Jadeveon Clowney.

"I feel like I’m the better player," Beasley said. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Beasley acknowledged Clowney's size advantage at 6-foot-5, 266 pounds. The senior has collected 23 sacks the last three years, which means he'll likely top Clowney’s career total of 24 career sacks over the next few months, though he'll obviously have needed more games to do it. "I feel like I’ve got the best first step in college football," Beasley said.

Georgia freshman RB Nick Chubb underwent thumb surgery on Monday, and he has not yet been given a timeline to return.

He suffered the injury during practice last week. The Bulldogs haven't yet announced Chubb's availability for Saturday’s game with Troy, though it'd be a shock if he played. "They said they would see how he’s doing (Tuesday) before they make that decision," his mother, Lavelle Chub, said. "Possibly this week but they’re not really sure (how long he’ll be out)." Chubb ranks second nationally with a 13 yards per carry average, rushing eight times for 104 yards and a touchdown.

Baylor announced that WRs Antwan Goodley (quad), Corey Coleman (hamstring), and Clay Fuller (clavicle) will all return against Iowa State after an upcoming bye week.

Bears head coach Art Briles confirmed the news in a teleconference on Monday. After combining for 138 receptions last season, the trio has not yet caught a pass between them in 2014. Wonder, then, that Baylor is still scoring points at will. Part of the reason for that -- aside from the terrible schedule, of course -- is the emergence of true freshman KD Cannon, who has 14 receptions for 471 yards (leads the FBS) and five touchdowns through three games.
