According to SI's Tony Pauline, Kansas State QB Collin Klein is "really struggling" as a passer early at East-West Shrine practices.

It's only a practice and a half in, and this isn't the first we've heard of Klein scuffling in the all-star game practices. Per Pauline, Klein "pushes the ball" and has appeared "indecisive" in 7-on-7 drills. Generally not an effective thrower of the football, Klein is a long shot for an extensive pro career unless he finds another way to make an impact. He won't be a full-time NFL quarterback.

Michigan State junior QB Connor Cook is "very capable" of breaking the Spartans' stretch of not having a top-40 drafted quarterback, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

MSU hasn't had a QB drafted in the top 40 during the Super Bowl era. "He is a good-sized athlete for the position with enough mobility to handle the high volume of rollouts and bootlegs in the Spartan's pro-style attack," Brugler wrote. "Cook has a quick set up and delivery with an easy release and top-shelf arm strength to make all the throws, displaying an arsenal of frozen ropes. He has functional downfield touch and controls his velocity well with fast eyes to see the field well on the move." Rotoworld projects the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder as a first-rounder in next spring's draft, though Cook needs to continue developing to make good on that projection. "Cook tends to ignore his footwork and lower half mechanics and with 58.7-percent completions, he has room to improve his ball placement, especially downfield," Brugler wrote. "He is too willing to throw off balance before his body and feet are set."

Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota will be eligible for the 2015 Senior Bowl.

The Senior Bowl's twitter account proclaimed as much. Mariota is two credits shy of graduating, and is taking golf and yoga to complete his General Science degree this fall. The NFL has seemingly rewarded quarterbacks that attend the Senior Bowl in recent years (EJ Manuel over Geno Smith, Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo and Logan Thomas over Zach Mettenberger and AJ McCarron), but it is possible their evals could have been better regardless. The event is the first time for position coaches to get a look at that year's draft prospects.

The NCAA has changed its ruling on Oklahoma State's APR score, and they will now avoid practice restrictions.

The NCAA had previously said Oklahoma State fell just below the APR limit of 930 to "pass" the penalty area. The school apparently found a football player from the 1990's who went back to school and recently graduated, taking them over the threshold. Oklahoma State has not disclosed the athlete's name.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer believes Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs is "one of the best players in the country."

"I'm 110 percent," Diggs said when asked about the major leg injury he suffered last year. "They say when you break your leg you get a little taller and a little faster, and I got both, I think." Diggs will be labeled as one of the nation's best playmakers. We loved his long speed, but feel Diggs was a bit straight-linish in his play style.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher reiterated his stance against college QBs seeking personal coaching from position "gurus."

"We've got good quarterback coaches," Fisher said. "My guys aren't going out there. I'll coach them. When they go to pro ball, they can do whatever they want. We'll coach our guys. I don't think it benefits you." Fisher is not alone in this opinion, as Auburn's Gus Malzahn shares the same stance. Our biggest issue with this is that college coaches have a limited number of hours they are allowed to spend with players during the offseason, so restricting their outside coaching might be limiting quarterbacks' practice reps. Fisher and Malzahn could be worried that their players will be taught something that goes against the team's mindset.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller has dropped his body fat from 10 to 7 percent, according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Despite the drop in body fat, Miller is actually up eight pounds and weighs in at 220. "I feel fast, clean." Nutrition has become a big part of some NFL teams' success, most recently with the Eagles. Many are seemingly already writing off Miller as a quarterback prospect. We are not one of them. He has plenty of areas to improve, however.

Utah junior QB Travis Wilson was cited for possession and consumption of alcohol by a minor at a concert on Friday.

Despite it seeming like Wilson has been at Utah for seven years, the junior is only 20 years old. "We are still in the process of gathering information on the incident," said head coach Kyle Whittingham in a statement. "Once we have all the facts, we will handle the situation internally and determine any disciplinary action that should be taken." Wilson is the odds on favorite to be the school's starting quarterback after he was medically cleared following a head injury.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline says NFL scouts see Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery as a second-round pick.

Pauline disagrees, grading Montgomery as a Rds. 3-4 prospect. "His size and inconsistent hands worry me," the analyst noted. Montgomery tallied 2,208 all-purpose yards last season, the third most in school history, leading the Cardinal with 61 catches for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's a superb receiver, but perhaps a better kick returner, averaging 30.3 yards per opportunity to earn consensus All-American honors as a kick returner in 2013. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is in line for a monster season.

Oregon State junior Isaac Seumalo hasn't been given a definitive timetable for his return from a broken foot, leaving him in jeopardy of missing the season opener.

"I think it’s on pretty good schedule to be ready to play, if not at the very first game, early," Oregon State head coach Mike Riley said. "So we’re going to be very, very careful with that. So that’s why I’m being very careful when I say he’s going to play. But I anticipate him being ready. I would think he might be ready for the first game, but maybe not." The Beavers don't need to rush Seumalo back with games against the Portland State Vikings and Hawaii Warriors in the first two weeks before a Week 3 bye.

Former UCLA redshirt junior OT Torian White was graded as a Rd. 4-5 preseason prospect by TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

White was booted from school in the spring after he was found responsible for two instances of sexual misconduct. "The left tackle looked good in 2012 then dominated during a brief tenure last year before his season was halted with a broken ankle," Pauline wrote. "He offers tremendous next level potential but obviously comes with baggage." We haven't yet heard of White's plans for the future.

TFY Insider's Tony Pauline compares UCLA redshirt senior DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa to former New York Jet Shaun Ellis.

Pauline allotted Odighizuwa a preseason Round 3 grade. "When I watched Odighizuwa last summer I was blown away," he wrote. "Much of the talk understandably centered around Anthony Barr yet many stamped Cassius Marsh as the Bruins top defensive line prospect. Odighizuwa sat on the sidelines in 2013 with a hip injury yet scouts rightfully gave him high grades moving towards the 2014 campaign. He reminds me of former Tennessee Volunteer and New York Jet Shaun Ellis in that he plays with an explosive, strong and athletic style." Odighizuwa's draft stock is dependent on his ability to prove he's healthy again.
