NFL Network's Mike Mayock said his "jaw dropped" after studying Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson on tape.

"The one kid I'm really interested in seeing run (at the Combine) is the Patterson kid from Tennessee," said Mayock. "You heard me say earlier I haven't seen any really explosive difference makers (in this draft); This kid's only played one year of Division-I football. And I put the tape on, my jaw dropped. And he's big. ... He's 6-foot-3, 200-plus pounds, and he flies. And he makes people miss all over the field. All I know is his ceiling could be really exciting because he's so darn raw. And I can't wait to see him run."

Virginia Tech redshirt senior RB Travon McMillian transferred to Colorado as a graduate.

McMillian (6'0/194) announced his transfer intent at the end of the 2017 season. The former four-star recruit began his career with the Hokies in high style, rushing for 1,043 yards (5.2 YPC) and seven touchdowns as a true freshman during the 2015 season. The good times would not last off that strong showing, though, as McMillian's rushing totals dropped each of the following two years. He bottomed out with just 439 yards on the ground for the most recent campaign. While McMillian was a diminishing factor as his career progressed in Blacksburg, Colorado makes for a nice landing spot for playing time with the prolific Phillip Lindsay no longer on roster.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Oregon has hired Washington State RB Jim Mastro to serve in the same capacity.

According to the Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh, Mastro decided to take the job earlier in the week, but was holding off on announcing out of respect for QB Tyler Hilinski, who was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday following an apparent suicide attempt. Mastro has been on staff with Washington State since 2012, when the program initially hired HC Mike Leach. He showed a creativity at getting his backs involved in Leach's pass-happy Air Raid, most notably during the 2016 season, when Wazzu running backs combined to total 1,660 yards on the ground and 1,034 yards receiving. With the Ducks, he'll be helping to usher in the post-Royce Freeman era. Tony Brooks-James remains in the fold in Eugene and is set to step up as starter for the 2018 season.

Cal senior RB Tre Watson will transfer as a graduate.

Watson (5'10/190) had one year eligibility left after the 2017 season. He'll be using that with a different program. During his time with Cal, the former four-star recruit appeared in 37 contests, making eight starts in that space. His high-water mark with the Golden Bears came in 2016, when he rushed for 709 yards (5.0 YPC) and four touchdowns. Alas, he was largely unable to build on that encouraging campaign, as a lower body injury sustained this past September knocked him out for the bulk of the 2017 season. Cal's now working with an exceedingly threadbare cupboard at running back, having already lost Vic Enwere to graduation and Zion Echols and Billy McCrary III to transfers prior to Watson also opting to exit stage left. Patrick Laird -- who came on to rush for 1,127 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 -- is in line to start from the word "go" come the fall barring injury.

The NCAA's Board of Governors will allow new transfer rule proposals to be made in April.

Such proposals can be made in April, with a vote on them potentially coming in June. ESPN's Matt Schick relayed on Wednesday that he had spoken with one NCAA official who believes there's a 95-percent chance that a rule is implemented -- at some point -- which will allow non-graduates to transfer without having to sit out a year. Should such a rule pass, it figures to have parameters attached to it to prevent a free-for-all, with Schick noting that it could include a potential "transfer window" or perhaps academic benchmarks. We'll have a much more clear idea of what's being cooked up come April. It's still possible that a sea change on the transfer rule might not be made until next year.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects Washington to select Georgia LB Roquan Smith with the 13th pick in his latest mock draft.

The headline if Smith does go to Washington writes itself. Most mocks we've seen have a quarterback going in this spot, but as Rang points out, Washington has an obvious need at linebacker as well with five of them set for free agency. "Smith, the 2017 Butkus Award winner as the nation’s top linebacker, lacks ideal bulk but his speed to the flanks and in coverage makes him perfectly suited to today’s modern pass-happy NFL," Rang writes. If Smith does "fall" here and Kirk Cousins is brought back, this is an obvious fit.

Ohio State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 DT Tyler Friday.

Friday made his decision on Friday (we know, we know), and chooses the Buckeyes over finalists Michigan, UCLA, Penn State and Miami. He's rated the fourth-best defensive tackle in the class by 247 Sports, and the 126th best player overall in ESPN's rankings. Reports indicate that he'll need to work on shedding blocks, but that he has a relentless motor and is an effective tackler. It sounds like the already loaded Ohio State class gets even better.

Wisconsin has extended HC Paul Chryst through the year 2023 with a five-year extension.

Chryst gets the deal after a 13-1 season and a win over Miami in the Orange Bowl. He'll make $3.3 million starting in 2018, with raise of $100,000 after each season. In his time with Wisconsin, he's gone 34-7, and the Badgers have gone 3-0 in bowl games under his leadership.

ESPN's Bill Polian believes that Louisville QB Lamar Jackson will be a "dynamic wide reciever" at the NFL level.

Polian believes that NFL teams will want to get the ball in Jackson's hands, which is the positive way of saying that Bill Polian doesn't believe Lamar Jackson can play quarterback. He cites his doubts about his ability to play the position by mentioning his frame, throwing accuracy and "penchant for taking off on the run." He's certainly not the first person to believe Jackson won't play quarterback in the NFL, but this is certainly one of the most high-profile.

NFL Media Analyst Daniel Jeremiah has the Browns taking USC QB Sam Darnold with the first pick in his latest mock draft.

Jeremiah keeps it short and sweet, simply stating that "The Browns finally find their franchise signal-caller." Because of how much talent there is at the position -- and because none of them separated themselves over the 2017 season -- we're going to see a few different quarterbacks projected with the first pick. That being said, Darnold still appears to be the favorite, if there is such a thing as a favorite three-plus months before the event.

FAU HC Lane Kiffin compares redshirt freshman QB Chris Robison to former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

Per the Palm Beach Post, Robison is "the likely frontrunner" for the 2018 starting job following Daniel Parr's transfer to Duquesne and Jason Driskel's retirement. Robison's biggest competition for the job is ex-Florida State Seminole and "Last Chance U" star De’Andre Johnson, who missed most of last year following surgery to remove blood clots in his arm. Robison, a four-star recruit in the 2017 cycle who competed at the Elite 11 event, was kicked off the Oklahoma roster last April following a DUI arrest. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder could be in line for huge numbers in FAU's explosive offense if he wins the job.

Purdue announced the resignation of co-offensive coordinator Tony Levine.

Levine also served as HC Jeff Brohm's special teams coordinator and TE coach. The 45-year-old Levine previously served as Houston's head coach from 2011-2014 before hooking up with Brohm at Western Kentucky. No reason was given for his departure outside of this super-abrupt, strangely brief press release: "Purdue head football coach Jeff Brohm announced today that assistant coach Tony Levine has resigned to pursue opportunities outside of coaching."
