CBS Sports' Dane Brugler spoke with one NFL scout who liked Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins more than his projected mid-to-late first-round slot.

The scout "raved" about the Clemson product. Hopkins' best trait is his willingness to go up and get targets at the catch point, with strong hands and good body positioning. He creates separation by setting up his routes, and Hopkins has deceptive long speed.

Boise State redshirt sophomore S Dylan Sumner-Gardner has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season.

Per Boise State's release, Sumner-Gardner is being hit with the hefty suspension "as a result of failing to meet NCAA football academic eligibility requirements." His first few seasons with the Broncos have been a bit rocky. After taking a redshirt in 2014, the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4 a year ago. One month later, he was arrested and hit with a misdemeanor drug charge. And now, the books are catching up with him. Said HC Bryan Harsin, "You've got to take care of business." Cameron Hartsfield will start in Sumner-Gardner's place while he is out on suspension.

Wisconsin redshirt sophomore LB T.J. Edwards (foot) will not play in Saturday's tilt against LSU.

Edwards fractured his foot over the summer. Near the end of July, HC Paul Chryst said that he had been ruled out indefinitely. Alas, the 6-foot-1, 238-pounder has been unable to recover sufficiently over the past month. He has not practiced during August camp. Tough beat for the Badgers, as Edwards led their strong defensive unit with 84 tackles posted for the past campaign. Chris Orr and Jack Cichy will fill in at middle linebacker and will surely appreciate these opportunities when Leonard Fournette is trucking toward them in the open field come Saturday.

LSU junior RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) said that he has regained full health after suffering a minor ankle sprain in mid-August.

"I'm good. It was nothing too serious. It happens in football," Fournette said. HC Les Miles indicated that his 6-foot-1, 230-pound bellcow back has "practiced extremely well" after being shut down for a short time earlier this month in order to allow him to rest his balky ankle. Miles doesn't want to wear out Fournette during the season and said, "We're not going to keep him on the field when he's tired, no matter what." Fournette received 300 carries a season ago. He will begin his 2016 Heisman campaign with a Lambeau Field showdown against Wisconsin on Saturday.

USC head coach Clay Helton named sophomore Chuma Edoga the starting LT for Saturday's game against Alabama.

The Crimson Tide's arsenal of pass rushers will be a very difficult test for the sophomore tackle, who started on the right side against Utah and Wisconsin. Longtime starter Chad Wheeler is dealing with plantar fasciitis and is not expected to see the field for many snaps. The Trojans offense has a new look at many positions, especially at quarterback with Max Browne.

Washington HC Chris Petersen said that there is "a chance" that junior S Budda Baker could be utilized on offense in the season-opener.

To just what extent Petersen is considering using Baker on offense is unknown, but the Huskies have a digestible early schedule which could be used as something of a sandbox as Petersen tinkers around. Their first three games come against Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State. After that they open conference play with a considerably more difficult Arizona-Stanford-Oregon combo. The 5-foot-10, 176-pound Baker played exclusively on the defensive side last season, recording 49 tackles (1.5 for loss) and two interceptions in 11 games. Those numbers have room to rise if he can stay healthy. As a freshman in 2014, he registered 80 tackles.

Florida suspended freshmen WR's Tyrie Cleveland and Rick Wells for the season-opener against UMass.

Cleveland and Wells were charged with criminal mischief for property damage and shooting a missile inside an occupied dwelling after the pair were arrested for their use of a BB gun in a dormitory in July. These should be considered relatively minor losses against a bad UMass team. On the more positive side of the ledger, leading wideout Antonio Callaway will suit up for that opener. His indefinite suspension was finally laid to rest by HC Jim McElwain on Monday.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that either redshirt junior QB Cooper Bateman or redshirt freshman QB Blake Barnett will start the season-opener against USC.

"When we make this choice, when we make this decision," Saban said, "it's with what's going to give us the best chance to win this game, but it's also about future development of our players." True freshman Jalen Hurts made an admirable push for consideration this month, but Saban indicated that his handle of the offense isn't up-to-par just yet. Saban said that the team has "a lot of confidence" in the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Bateman. Phil Savage believes he is the probable starter for the coming season.

Florida sophomore WR Antonio Callaway (suspension) has been cleared to play for the season-opener against UMass.

As of last week, HC Jim McElwain wasn't making any promises on Callaway's playing status for Week 1. The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder has been serving out an indefinite suspension stemming from an allegation of sexual assault in December. Callaway was cleared of those charges earlier this summer and has been practicing with the team this month. Now officially back on board, he makes for the most palatable fantasy target on Florida. As a freshman last season, Callaway caught 35 passes for 678 yards (19.4 yards per reception) and four touchdowns.

There will be no carry-restriction on Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb (knee) in the season-opener against North Carolina.

"We feel good about Nick. He won’t be on a pitch count by any means," said HC Kirby Smart, who added that "he’s scrimmaged, and done live things, and been hit." The 5-foot-10, 228-pounder initially suffered a severe knee injury against Tennessee last October. In just five-plus games in 2015, he rushed for 747 yards (8.1 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He actually has never had a full season all his own as starter. He backed Todd Gurley until Gurley went down with a knee injury of in 2014. Chubb finished that season having rushed for 1,547 yards (7.1 YPC) and 14 touchdowns. 2016 should give us prime Chubb. He is an upper-tier fantasy back, particularly now that he has been cleared medically.

Juan Caballero, the owner for South Beach Exotic Rentals, said that the company never offered improper use of vehicles to dismissed Miami redshirt junior DE Al-Quadin Muhammad and senior LB Jermaine Grace.

In a statement provided to the Miami Herald, Caballero not only denied improperly offering the pair of Hurricanes vehicles, he actually provides details as to each player in this situation. He told the Herald that Muhammad's cousin rented the vehicle that Muhammad was spotted in after a game last season, "as [the cousin has] for many years." As for Grace, Caballero said that his uncle rented him a vehicle. Both players were dismissed over the weekend due to perceived violations of NCAA regulations regarding improper benefits. Caballero said that "there has never been a single incident where a player has received preferential treatment or anything of value for free."

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Jesse Ertz was named the starter for the 2016 season.

Ertz opened as starter last year, too, but was waylaid by a knee injury during the first series of the season-opener. He has regained full health on that front and beat out redshirt freshman Alex Delton and senior QB Joe Hubener during August camp. From Bill Snyder's comments, this wasn't a particularly close competition. "In all reality, he's been more consistent than the other two," Snyder said. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder will have a tall task on his hands in the opener against Stanford. There isn't enough offensive firepower around him to recommend Ertz as a true fantasy prospect.
