CBS Sports' Dane Brugler considers San Jose State's David Quessenberry the best mid-round LT prospect.

Quessenberry started the draft process as a late rounder, but his excellent week of Senior Bowl practices will likely land him in the fourth-round. Brugler is projecting Quessenberry to left tackle, but we wouldn't be surprised to see him show versatility as a guard.

Ohio State announced senior QB Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 season.

The Buckeyes are confirming Miller re-injured his right (throwing) shoulder during practice Monday, but they have thus far refused to disclose the specific nature of the injury. Previous media reports indicate that Miller dislocated the shoulder on a throw in which he wasn't hit. "My thoughts and prayers are with Braxton and his family," Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said in a statement. "This is an unfortunate injury to a young man who means so much to this program and to Buckeye nation." Miller is saying he intends to return to Ohio State in 2015. "I am on course to graduate in December and I want to attend graduate school, and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season," he said. All eyes are now on redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who assumes the starting job.

LSU true freshman DT Travonte Valentine is in "the final phases of the admission process," reports the Baton Rouge Advocate.

Valentine‘s high school coach Mike Tunsil confirmed the news to the newspaper. Yesterday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported that Valentine had been green-lighted by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Assuming there are no hiccups to the process, Valentine was expected to arrive on campus Tuesday and begin practicing as soon as Wednesday. Valentine won’t be in full pads until his fifth practice day due to the NCAA’s mandated four-day acclimation period. The athletic 6-foot-3, 325-pounder was rated as the No. 34 overall player in his class by 247Sports.com.

Florida true freshman DT Thomas Holley will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip and miss the 2014 season.

The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Holley, the country's No. 3-rated defensive tackle prospect, needs four months to recover. The Gators will redshirt him this season. "I'm disappointed for Thomas," Florida coach Will Muschamp said. "Certainly a guy that athletically we were very excited about. Originally when he came in for the pre-physical, he'd had the sports hernia repaired and that's where he thought his pain was coming from. And then on the pre-physical we saw this. We wanted to see how far we could take it, but we knew eventually there was probably going to be a surgery involved. He just had a lot of discomfort involved, so we just decided to go ahead and do it."

Ohio State sophomore RB Ezekiel Elliott has been cleared to play following wrist surgery.

Elliott underwent surgery on his left wrist just over a week ago. Elliott had 262 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 8.7 yards per carry as a true freshman last year. Expect the 6-foot, 225-pound four-star recruit in the 2013 class to help pick up a bulk of the rushing attempts left by Carlos Hyde's departure.

Former Northwestern redshirt senior RB Venric Mark is considering walking on at Texas Tech or attending Division-II West Texas A&M and Midwestern State, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Mark was suspended by Northwestern coaches for the first two games of the season before deciding to transfer. Mark's mother lives in Lubbock, Texas, so Fowler suggest Mark could earn a waiver to play immediately if he chooses the Red Raiders. "Texas also said no because Charlie Strong is cleaning house and isn't taking on new players at the moment," Fowler writes, adding dropping down to Division-II is the most likely outcome.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 season, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

It was the news we all expect. Miller underwent an MRI on Tuesday after re-injuring his right throwing shoulder during practice on Monday. J.T. Barrett will almost certainly be named Ohio State's starting quarterback shortly. We are not sure if Miller will take a redshirt season, as he was very close to entering last spring's NFL draft.

Texas A&M freshman edge rusher Myles Garrett has been "as advertised" during preseason practice, according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel.

Garrett was the school's top defensive recruit and was ranked as a five-star prospect by a number of scouting services. Garrett "owed coaches early in camp when he got the best of All-American OT Cedric Ogbuehi on consecutive one-on-one reps using two different moves," according to the Fox Sports duo. A&M's offense will almost certainly be worse this season, but their defensive success can only go up.

USF HC Willie Taggart said the team's offense will transition into taking a more pro-style approach.

USF five starting linemen will average 310 pounds this season, which is 13 more than the same unit checked in at last year. "We’re going pro-style, like you see with the 49ers and Stanford," Taggart told SI's Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel. As the duo points out, Taggart played under Jack Harbaugh at Western Kentucky and coached under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford. USF went 2-10 last year with a "spread" approach.

Ole Miss HC Marquis Haynes is "giddy" about freshman edge rusher Marquis Haynes, according to SI's Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel.

Haynes enrolled in January after spending a season at Fork Union Military Academy and produced two sacks in the spring game. Ole Miss is down their top edge rusher for the season in C.J. Johnson. Haynes originally signed with UNC out of high school but could not qualify academically. "Haynes will likely start against opponents with spread offenses and probably rotate against those with attached tight ends, but will certainly be in against both on third downs," Thamel and Evans write.

LSU RB coach Frank Wilson believes freshman S Jamal Adams is "every bit of what Eric Berry, Tyrann Mathieu, Patrick Peterson and Eric Reid were."

"He’s a freaking animal. He’s in the league with those guys at this time of his career. He may be the steal of the class," Wilson said. Plenty has been made about freshman running back Leonard Fournette, but LSU coaches are making sure to spread around their praise. Wilson added Adams has "first-round written all over him." If you believe the school's staff, this might be the best recruiting class in the last decade. Adams might start at strong safety, but he will at least be in for nickel or dime situations.

There is "significant friction" between Louisville HC Bobby Petrino and DC Todd Grantham, according to sources close to SI's Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel.

"The two have feuded often since Grantham’s hiring in January," the duo reports. "So much that one source insists Petrino would have already gotten rid of Grantham if not for his guaranteed five-year contract that pays him nearly $1 million annually." Grantham left Georgia for the Louisville job. The defensive coordinator always had great talent with the Bulldogs, but we do not believe he always used it correctly and effectively. Petrino has a history of being difficult, however.
