One anonymous scout tells Pro Football Weekly that Mississippi State CB Johnthan Banks is "a lot like Richard Sherman."

"He reminds me of the type of corners they have playing in Seattle," the scout said of Banks. "He can play off or on and is not bad off, but that’s not his deal. He is a press cover guy. Everyone wants a big man corner... For a long guy, he can come out of breaks." Banks did play some man coverage in college, but a large portion of his time was spent in a cover 3 zone, where he could break on targets underneath him.

Oklahoma senior TE Blake Bell was one of 40 tight ends named on the Mackey Award preseason watch list.

This speaks to Bell's athletic ability as much as anything, since he's in the process of transitioning to tight end. The 6-foot-6, 265-pounder started eight games at QB last year. He's joined on the list by big names such as Iowa State's E.J. Bibbs, Ohio State's Jeff Heuerman, Alabama's O.J. Howard, Notre Dame's Ben Koyack and Florida State's Nick O'Leary.

CBS Sports' Derek Stephens sees in Florida State senior RB Karlos Williams a "versatile and extremely athletic running back" with the potential to be "elite" in the NFL.

The 6-foot-1, 223-pounder had 731 rushing yards on 91 carries and 11 touchdowns during his junior year while sharing the backfield with James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman. Now, it's Williams' time to break out. "Williams possesses speed, cutback ability and power, and demonstrated improved vision over the course of his lone season at tailback," Stephens wrote. "Has the talent to be an elite running back at the next level if he can continue to improve."

40 college QBs and one WR are scheduled to attend the Manning Passing Academy as counselors.

The event runs from Thursday until Sunday, and many eyes will be on the events and drills the counselors participate in. Thanks to Johnny Manziel's exit last year, many will also be interested to see if all 41 stay the duration of the program. FSU's Jameis Winston and Oregon's Marcus Mariota headline the group. The full list can be found in the link below.

No players were selected in the 2014 Supplemental Draft.

As expected. The draft ended as soon as it started since no team entered a bid on any of the four eligible prospects. Teams could give SMU running back Traylon Shead, Virginia-Lynchburg DT Lakendrick Ross, New Mexico WR Chase Clayton and UNC linebacker Darius Lipford a look during training camp, as each is now a free agent.

FSU sophomore WR Jesus "Bobo" Wilson was arrested and charged on Wednesday with vehicular grand theft in the third degree.

Tomahawk Nation believes this is Wilson's first run in with police, adding grand theft auto in the third degree carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. He played sparingly in 2013, catching three passes for 23 yards and total 89 return yards on eight punts.

Four names have been confirmed as possible picks for Thursday's Supplemental Draft, including SMU RB Traylon Shead.

The other three names include: New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton, UNC linebacker Darius Lipford and Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross. Shead is a larger than average running back, while Ross is a massive (6'4/336 lbs) defensive tackle. Multiple teams attended each prospect's pro day, but there is a legitimate chance none are selected. If a club does select one of these players, they lose a corresponding draft pick in the 2015 draft.

Texas A&M true freshman Kyler Murray said he feels no pressure from being compared to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel.

"If anything, it's all cool. Johnny is Johnny and he does his thing. We do play similar and I can't deny that," Murray said. "But pressure? No, there's none of that going to A&M. Johnny left some big shoes to fill and they're going to miss him for sure and what he brought to the table." The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is a five-star recruit currently attending Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters. Murray has lightning fast feet and a whip for an arm, which is why he's been drawing "The Next Johnny Football" label since he was winning two state championships in high school.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline allotted UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley a second-round grade.

"Let the outrage commence!" he joked on Twitter. Hundley is perhaps the most polarizing preseason "elite" draft prospect. Some see a future franchise quarterback -- CBS Sports' Rob Rang tossed out a Randall Cunningham comparison last month -- worthy of a top 10 selection. Others, such as Pauline and Rotoworld's Josh Norris, see an intriguing developmental prospect unworthy of such an investment at this time. Hundley could drag the latter group to enlightenment by becoming a Heisman candidate this season, or he could force Rang and others off the bandwagon if he continues to make unforgivable mistakes under duress.

USC redshirt freshman DL Kenny Bigelow will miss the 2014 season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

The injury occurred during voluntary player workouts. Bigelow enrolled early last spring and promptly redshirted his first season. Without seeing him on the field it is tough to say if Bigelow can challenge for a starting spot in the future, but the Trojans will likely lose their top defensive prospect to the 2015 draft in Leonard Williams.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Oregon redshirt junior QB Marcus Mariota and USC junior DL Leonard Williams "are in a tier of their own" among Pac-12 prospects.

After these two, Weidl lists Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat, Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and UCLA redshirt junior quarterback Brett Hundley at No. 3, 4 and 5 respectively. We would agree, as Mariota enters the season as the top quarterback prospect with Williams as a possible top ten selection.
