Draft insider Tony Pauline believes West Virginia's Geno Smith is the top rated QB in this class, "bar none."

"He offers a terrific combination of athletic ability and experience at the quarterback position," Pauline writes. "Smith has the arm strength to make all the NFL passes, the foot speed to elude defenders and make the throw on the move and, for the most part, accurately delivers the ball." He adds that Smith's field vision and decision making are his biggest flaws.

Michigan State approved a one-year contract extension for HC Mark Dantonio.

This was something of a formality, as the six-year contract Dantonio signed last January had a provision for annual renewal. His new deal will run through January, 2023. After the extension was approved, school president Lou Anna K. Simon addressed the off-field turmoil surrounding the Spartans -- three players and a staffer have been indefinitely suspended pending an investigation into an alleged sexual assault -- saying, "My sense is that, if we had anything to be concerned about, we wouldn’t have moved forward with the action today. We’re still looking at everything, because it’s in his interest, as well."

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 WR Micah Jones.

"They talked about me being that ‘W’ position, or outside receiver, where Equanimeous [St. Brown] plays right now. They want to use my length over the middle, in the red zone and (catching) fades," said Jones in explaining his football fit with the Irish. At 6-foot-5, 196 pounds, he could, indeed, prove to be a lethal target in the red zone. Rivals ranks him as the No. 158 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle and the No. 1 prospect in the state of Illinois.

Washington redshirt senior LB Psalm Wooching has decided that he will play rugby rather than try for the NFL.

"This has been a dream of mine for quite some time and I will do anything to accomplish it," Wooching wrote on Twitter. His hope is that he will be able to eventually compete in rugby during the Olympics. The 6-foot-4, 231-pounder was part of the U.S. rugby junior national team in high school. Last season, Wooching led Washington with six sacks. He also registered 42 tackles (7.0 for loss) and two forced fumbles. That strong work earned him All-Pac-12 honorable mention.

Oregon hired former San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator Michael Johnson Sr. as wide receivers coach.

The post opened earlier this month when Jimmie Dougherty left Oregon for UCLA. That Johnson Sr. would take it is something of a surprise, as he'd been rumored to be heading to Michigan in an analyst role. Johnson Sr.'s employment status has been a topic of fierce debate over the past week, coming to a head when Paul Finebaum accused Jim Harbaugh of cheating for hiring him. Harbaugh shot back by calling Finebaum "Pete Finebaum" and an "SEC water carrier." All the drama stems from the fact that Johnson Sr.’s son, Michael Johnson Jr., is the top-rated dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2019.

Arizona State redshirt junior QB Manny Wilkins says he doesn't mind having to compete with Alabama transfer Blake Barnett for the starting quarterback job.

"It's all part of the game," Wilkins said. "College football is a business. I'm not scared. I'm not flustered. That's not who I am. It really doesn't matter to me. I'm very hungry." The competition is expected to exclusively be between Wilkins and Barnett because backups Brady White and Bryce Perkins are injured and the coaching staff wants to redshirt sophomore Dillon Sterling-Cole and incoming freshman Ryan Kelley. Barnett was ranked by ESPN as the nation's No. 1 pocket passer coming out of high school. New ASU OC Billy Napier was most recently Alabama's WR coach, giving him a good deal of familiarity with Barnett. "We're going to create competition," Napier said. "We're going to evaluate them as if we don't know anything about them."

An AFC national scout says UNC QB Mitch Trubisky "has the same talent as Carson Wentz."

"I think (Mitch) Trubisky has the same talent as Carson Wentz, but Wentz is way bigger and he was just special from a football intelligence and interviewing standpoint," he said. "Trubisky is barely going to (measure) 6-foot-2, so he better kill it in combine meetings." Indeed. Wentz measured into the NFL Combine at 6-foot-5, 237 pounds with 10-inch hands. Some believe that Trubisky, meanwhile, will check in around 6-foot-1.

Clemson junior DT Scott Pagano will transfer as a graduate.

Pagano asked for his release from the program and intends to play elsewhere next season. As a graduate, he'll be eligible if he transfers to another FBS program. "I met with Scott Pagano yesterday," Swinney said. "We had a good talk and he told me about his intentions to be a graduate transfer for his final year of eligibility. I told him to think about it overnight." Pagano was the No. 104 player in the nation by Rivals coming out of the prep ranks. In 12 games (and four starts) in 2016, he converted 299 snaps into 31 tackles, 4.5 TFL and two sacks.

Louisville edge rusher Devonte Fields will work with the LB position at the NFL Combine.

Fields' path throughout his collegiate career is a windy one. He typically played defensive end, but was asked to drop in some situations. We would not call it a strength, so any four front or five front scheme he plays in should feature him as a pass rusher.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah spoke with an NFL executive who believes Cal's Davis Webb will end up being the top QB in the 2017 class.

We've made it here and it is only mid-February. Webb played one season at Cal after transferring from Texas Tech, playing in a similar Bear Raid offense as Jared Goff, last year's No. 1 pick. Webb has a strong arm. We've concluded the positive portion of his evaluation.

One NFL offensive line coach suggested weight will be a major question for Troy T Antonio Garcia in the NFL.

"He's a thin-waist guy and he doesn't look like he can hold weight," the position coach said. "It's pretty hard to be 295 to 305 (pounds) and make it anymore in the league as a starter." Garcia weighed 293 pounds at the Senior Bowl, so it will be interesting to see where he weighs in at Indianapolis. Just speaking on offensive line coaches. They are the epitome of old school footballers. So even if this position coach loves Garcia's punch, footwork and even strength, weight will be a question for their traditional minds.

Appearing on ESPN Radio, Bill Polian said Ole Miss' Chad Kelly is likely "the most talented QB in the draft."

"But he has a ton of baggage, so that is another issue," Polian said. The former Colts GM was the person to report Kelly's initial invitation to the NFL Combine being pulled due to a new rule implemented by the event. We aren't sure how Chad Kelly is the most talented passer. Sure, he displays great moments, even against Alabama, but he is the definition of a high variance player. Kelly will be a third day pick, at best.
