Former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah likens Georgia LB Alec Ogletree' game to Steelers ILB Lawrence Timmons.

Like Timmons, Ogletree is an explosive linebacker capable of playing inside and out. An inside 'backer by trade in Pittsburgh's 3-4, Timmons often starts at outside linebacker when James Harrison or LaMarr Woodley is injured. Jeremiah compares Ogletree to Timmons as a "bigger version" with explosive athleticism, but who struggles to take on blocks at the second level.

AL.com's Matt Zenitz reports that former Alabama DL coach Bo Davis is being investigated by the NCAA for impermissible contact with recruits.

Davis tendered his resignation on Friday. There were rumors of possible recruiting violations in the air and those rumors took on extra heft with AL.com's report. Per Zenitz, "Davis is accused of visiting multiple out-of-state recruits during a period when coaches aren't allowed any contact with recruits." He went on to write that none of the recruits in question ultimately signed with Alabama. The NCAA got in touch with Bama's compliance office and spoke with Davis regarding these allegations -- Zenitz hears that they caught him being dishonest -- after which he resigned.

Four-star QB Lowell Narcisse committed to LSU for 2017.

Whether HC Les Miles is even around to see Narcisse join the Tigers is a story for another day, but at least for now, he can rest contented with the knowledge that he landed a stud quarterback commitment. The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder announced his decision via Twitter and thanked the other programs that had danced with him. Among those, heavy hitters in Alabama and Auburn. ESPN 300 ranks him as their No. 38 overall prospect and No. 1 dual-threat QB for the 2017 cycle.

Pro Football Focus believes that the Bears' selection of Florida DE Jonathan Bullard was the best pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The context here is key. As analyst Gordon McGuinness noted, "To find a defensive lineman with Bullard’s upside in the third round [at pick No. 72] is ridiculous value." He went on to write that "Bullard isn’t even a high-risk, high-reward type player. His run-stopping ability will most certainly translate to the NFL after he led all of college with a +51.5 run defense grade a year ago." McGuinness and the fine folks at PFF are less certain as to Bullard's potential NFL success against the pass.

ECU graduate QB Kurt Benkert will transfer to Virginia.

Because he will be transferring as a graduate, Benkert will be eligible to play immediately. He announced his decision via Twitter, writing, "I'm ready for the next chapter, it's going to be a great [two] years!" The 6-foot-3, 225-pound gunslinger did not play in 2015 due to a knee injury. One possible reason for the transfer to Virginia, specifically -- former ECU HC Ruffin McNeill (who was fired at the end of the 2015 campaign) was hired as an assistant with the Cavaliers earlier this offseason.

Auburn sophomores CB Carlton Davis III, DE Byron Cowart, CB Jeremiah Dinson and WR Ryan Davis were arrested and charged with second-degree misdemeanor marijuana-possession on Saturday night.

Ole Miss wasn't the only SEC school taking heat over the weekend. "I'm aware of the situation and we will handle the matter appropriately," Tigers HC Gus Malzahn said in a statement. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Davis was a freshman All-American last season after posting 56 tackles and three interceptions. Cowart was the No. 1 overall prospect in last year's recruiting class, though he only posted six tackles as a reserve defensive lineman in 2015. Dinson and Davis were both early contributors -- Dinson more so before he tore knee ligaments in his right knee nine games into the season -- expected to take on more playing time in 2016.

Patriots signed Mississippi State WR/TE De’Runnya Wilson.

Wilson (6'5/224) made 24 starts for the Bulldogs before turning pro, parlaying 133 career catches into 1,949 yards (14.7 YPR) and 22 TDs. He earned second-team All-SEC as a 2015 junior. Despite doubling as a basketball player at Mississippi State, Wilson proceeded to flunk the Combine, running 4.85 with a 28-inch vertical. Wilson also made poor use of his size in college, underwhelming in contested-catch situations. Optimists have compared Wilson to Plaxico Burress, but his skill set is more along the lines of Ramses Barden. He's a long shot.

Jets signed Temple WR Robby Anderson.

Anderson (6'3/187) opened his college career as a special teamer and defensive back before converting to wideout, where he led the Owls in catches (70), yards (939), and touchdowns (7) as a senior. Snubbed for a Combine invite, Anderson showed explosive athleticism at Temple's Pro Day, blazing 4.36 with a 10-foot-8 broad jump. During the pre-draft phase, some scouts viewed cornerback as Anderson's best NFL position due to his small hands (8 3/8") and rangy frame. Ultimately, Anderson is a multi-year project with some developmental upside.

Oregon QB Vernon Adams will attend the Seahawks' rookie minicamp next week.

Adams surprisingly didn't get any UDFA offers. He'll attempt to parlay a tryout with Seattle into a contract. The Seahawks have also added TCU's Trevone Boykin to their quarterback mix behind Russell Wilson.

Miami redshirt junior DE Al-Quadin Muhammad underwent knee surgery on Friday.

While knives on knees are always cause for concern, Miami called Muhammad's procedure "small," while the Palm Beach Post's Matt Porter hears that it was of the arthroscopic variety. Porter relayed that per his source, it was, indeed, a minor procedure. The Canes are hoping their 6-foot-3, 256-pound end will be able to resume participation in football activity within two weeks. Last season, he registered 54 tackles (8.5 for loss), five sacks and a singular forced fumble. He could be set for a big 2016 campaign if he can regain his health after his knee procedure.

Five-star WR Demetris Robertson signed with Cal.

Amid the hustle and bustle of the NFL draft, let us pause to recognize the impact of Robertson's signing on the new collegiate landscape. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Golden Bear to-be announced his decision at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta on Sunday. ESPN 300 ranked him as their No. 65 overall prospect for this class due to his slick athleticism. Cal still needs to figure out who will throw him the ball, but at least he will be there to catch it. Said Robertson of his long, long, long-awaited signing, "When I went there, it felt like home. Me and the coaching staff have a great relationship. That’s where I felt were the best of all things for me." Tough times for Georgia and Notre Dame, who (along with Cal) were among his front-runners. Robertson had been hoping to join Stanford's team, but he wasn't quite able to meet their lofting academic testing requirements.

Rams signed TCU RB Aaron Green.

Green (5'11/203) spent three years with the Horned Frogs after transferring from Nebraska, parlaying 445 career carries into 2,426 yards (5.5 YPC) and 20 touchdowns. He also caught 39 passes. Green showed passable athleticism at TCU's Pro Day, running 4.57 with a 10-foot broad jump and 6.89 three-cone time. Although Green has exciting foot quickness and some playmaking ability, he "runs small" inside the tackles and struggles badly in pass protection. He's a lower-end scatback prospect.
