USC QB Matt Barkley will visit the Bills and Browns this week.

We doubt either pulls the trigger on Barkley in the first-round, but both teams are doing their due diligence with the quarterback position. When in a nice rhythm, Barkley has good timing and placement, but a lack of mobility and velocity to buy himself time or make throws against pressure could result in major issues.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield's playing style to Colt McCoy coming out of Texas.

"Both guys were big-time winners in college and I think Mayfield, like McCoy, will have a long NFL career as a solid No. 2 QB," he wrote. Jeremiah also sees some of Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M in Mayfield, but doesn't think that comparison quite encapsulates it because Manziel was a "little more dynamic than Mayfield as both a passer and runner." The analyst loves Mayfield's improvisation and ability to escape the pocket when his first two reads are covered. "He has excellent touch on underneath throws (swings, bubble screens, shallow crossers, etc.) and his deep-ball touch is above average," Jeremiah wrote. "He doesn't have a huge arm, but he flashes the ability to drive the ball." However, Jeremiah says Mayfield "has a long way to go" before becoming an NFL starter because his "accuracy on drive throws is concerning," "his feet get very busy" inside the pocket and he sometimes bypasses easy completions for a big pl

Four-star 2018 WR Brennan Eagles committed to Texas.

Eagles, the No. 94 overall prospect in the ESPN 300, chose the Horns over a host of suitors that included Clemson and Oklahoma. ESPN sees Eagles (6'3/214) as a strong slot/possession receiver who could be highly dangerous in the red zone. "He has a long, rangy frame and shows good burst off the line," wrote Tom Luginbill. "He uses his hands well to catch the ball away from his body and does a good job of finding the open window in zone coverages. He has adequate speed, but is not a burner ... He is much better as a jump-ball guy." For those reasons, Luginbill comps Eagles to Texas Tech WR Derrick Willies, another big, rangy receiver with ball skills and body control.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Boston College senior edge rusher Harold Landry is the "top-rated senior prospect" on the lists of "most" NFL scouts and is reminiscent on tape of Syracuse great Dwight Freeney.

"Landry is a tremendous pass rusher off the edge and a defender opponents gameplan around," Pauline wrote. "He beats blockers off the snap with a great first step and beats them around the edge with tremendous speed or exploits them with agility and devastating inside moves." Landry had 16.5 sacks last year despite constant double teams. Listed at 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, Pauline thinks he's more like 6'2/250 (and maybe even a little shorter). Because of that, the analyst thinks he could "line up as a one-gap end" and "also see time as a 3-4 OLB as he has the athleticism necessary to play in space." Earlier this month, NFL.com analyst and former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah compared Landry to Vic Beasley.

According to the Gainesville Sun, Florida freshman LB Nick Smith underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Monday.

He'll be out for at least six weeks. That leaves Smith out for summer camp and the 2017 opener Sept. 2 against Michigan (at least). A redshirt year could be coming. This is a tough blow for Florida, which returns just four LBs who have started a game for the Gators. Smith was the No. 79 OLB in the country in this past cycle.

Michelle Bodkin of UteZone.com reports that former Oregon redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington will transfer to Utah as a graduate.

This is an enormous coup for the Utes, who add a receiver who immediately becomes their most talented. Transitioning into the pass-first, up-tempo, quick-hitting system run by new OC Troy Taylor (formerly of Eastern Washington), Carrington is precisely the type of WR1 this attack makes great use of. Think Cooper Kupp. Carrington (6'2/200) is similar in size to Kupp (6'2/205). He's also faster and more explosive, though Taylor will have to teach him the finer points of route running and ball-snatching that made Kupp so special at EWU. Carrington (career 112-1,919-15 line at UO) was booted off the Ducks by new head coach Willie Taggart following a DUI charge on July 1 (the receiver pleaded not guilty on Monday). Since Carrington has graduated, he's immediately eligible to play. The Utes were unproven and thin at WR before today. If Carrington stays out of trouble, he could be in line for a big year. His addition also alleviates pressure on Raelon Singleton, the Utes' leading returning WR

Rutgers redshirt senior WR Janarion Grant is 100 percent healthy heading into the 2017 season.

Grant suffered a season ending right ankle back in September of 2016 and applied for a medical redshirt in the hopes playing in 2017. After a limited spring, Grant will be out on the field and might be the Knights' top player.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said DC Greg Schiano was offered two "significant" head coaching jobs this offseason.

Schiano turned both jobs down and will coach at Ohio State for at least another season. Eleven Warriors astutely notes Schiano's twin sons graduate from high school after this year, so he might be willing to move once they go off to college. This will be his second season with the Buckeyes.

Tennessee has requested media members who are in attendance to not report on injured players they observe during open portions of practice.

Basically Tennessee officials are asking for only positive P.R.. Butch Jones and company are certainly on the hot seat, and this screams "scared." It could be a very difficult season for the Vols.

Dismissed former Oregon redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington pleaded not guilty to his DUI charge.

Carrington was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he ran into a McDonald's drive-through in the early morning hours on July 1. He has since been dismissed from Oregon. As for potential transfer destinations, Carrington has been kicking around other Pac-12 programs, including Utah -- who he visited after his dismissal. SB Nation floated Arizona as another potential suitor.

The Big Ten has reached agreement with ESPN and FOX on a six-year contract.

This television package with the conference will last through the 2023 season. FOX has the rights to regular season games as well as the conference title tilt. In related news as media days kick off this week, the Big Ten Network will be moving into the 21st century and will be accessible to the cord-cutters on Hulu and YouTube.

Florida received a verbal commitment from five-star 2018 QB Matt Corral.

Should Florida be able to hang onto Corral through National Signing Day this winter, he would be the biggest shark that HC Jim McElwain has hooked in recruiting since taking over at the helm two seasons ago. Corral (6'2/185) backed off a pledge to USC in mid-June, after which he began to sniff around the SEC. A visit to the Gators this weekend sealed the deal. On the field, he's as good as they get, with Scout.com comparing him to Brett Favre for his maverick playing style. There could be one more big reverberation from his Florida pledge, as Corral and fellow five-star QB Justin Fields were both eyeing some of the same programs. Don't be surprised if Fields ends up committing to Georgia now that Corral has moved his chess piece.
