Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes UCLA's Anthony Barr has the edge over BYU's Kyle Van Noy at the pass rushing OLB position, and added it wasn't close.

"Barr is still a bit raw (with) hands and doesn't have ideal bend," Weidl tweeted. "But he's long, explosive (and) closes in a hurry. Nightmare to handle on a twist." Barr, a former H-back, has spent one season on the defensive side of the ball and has immediately impressed. Weidl admitted to being "a bit underwhelmed by Van Noy" and added he lacked size and length and point of attack skills was exposed versus Notre Dame. "Average athletic/explosiveness. Didn't see a dynamic player"

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline says NFL scouts see Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery as a second-round pick.

Pauline disagrees, grading Montgomery as a Rds. 3-4 prospect. "His size and inconsistent hands worry me," the analyst noted. Montgomery tallied 2,208 all-purpose yards last season, the third most in school history, leading the Cardinal with 61 catches for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's a superb receiver, but perhaps a better kick returner, averaging 30.3 yards per opportunity to earn consensus All-American honors as a kick returner in 2013. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is in line for a monster season.

Oregon State junior Isaac Seumalo hasn't been given a definitive timetable for his return from a broken foot, leaving him in jeopardy of missing the season opener.

"I think it’s on pretty good schedule to be ready to play, if not at the very first game, early," Oregon State head coach Mike Riley said. "So we’re going to be very, very careful with that. So that’s why I’m being very careful when I say he’s going to play. But I anticipate him being ready. I would think he might be ready for the first game, but maybe not." The Beavers don't need to rush Seumalo back with games against the Portland State Vikings and Hawaii Warriors in the first two weeks before a Week 3 bye.

Former UCLA redshirt junior OT Torian White was graded as a Rd. 4-5 preseason prospect by TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

White was booted from school in the spring after he was found responsible for two instances of sexual misconduct. "The left tackle looked good in 2012 then dominated during a brief tenure last year before his season was halted with a broken ankle," Pauline wrote. "He offers tremendous next level potential but obviously comes with baggage." We haven't yet heard of White's plans for the future.

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier expects junior RB Mike Davis to declare for the NFL draft after this coming season.

The 5-foot-9, 215-pound Davis led the SEC in rushing last season as Marcus Lattimore's replacement with 1,183 yards and 11 touchdowns as a sophomore. So long as there isn't an injury or dropoff in production, his coach expects 2014 to mark Davis' last fall in Columbia. "Mike Davis, if he has a big year, he’s going to go pro," Spurrier said. "And we’re going to tell him to go pro, because he should. The lifespan of a running back is only a certain amount of years. If a young man after three years can go, we’re going to shake his hand and let him go. That’s why you keep recruiting more running backs." Davis reportedly runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.5-second range. "The thing as a running back is your life expectancy isn’t long in the NFL," USC RB coach Everette Sands said. "Here in the SEC, it’s probably the closest thing to the NFL." Davis is considered one of the five best draft-eligible RB prospects.

TFY Insider's Tony Pauline compares UCLA redshirt senior DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa to former New York Jet Shaun Ellis.

Pauline allotted Odighizuwa a preseason Round 3 grade. "When I watched Odighizuwa last summer I was blown away," he wrote. "Much of the talk understandably centered around Anthony Barr yet many stamped Cassius Marsh as the Bruins top defensive line prospect. Odighizuwa sat on the sidelines in 2013 with a hip injury yet scouts rightfully gave him high grades moving towards the 2014 campaign. He reminds me of former Tennessee Volunteer and New York Jet Shaun Ellis in that he plays with an explosive, strong and athletic style." Odighizuwa's draft stock is dependent on his ability to prove he's healthy again.

Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery (arm and knee) has been labeled questionable for the season opener against USC.

"It will be close for USC," coach David Shaw said. Montgomery missed spring practices after undergoing surgeries on his arm and knee. "Hopefully, by the end of training camp, he’ll be able to do more contact stuff," Shaw added. Montgomery led Stanford with 61 catches for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He's also a dynamo kickoff return man who averaged 30.3 yards per opportunity to earn consensus All-American honors in 2013. Sophomore Francis Owusu would likely step into the starting lineup if Montgomery is forced to miss time.

Oklahoma freshman RB Joe Mixon is being investigated by police for allegedly striking a female student, according to his attorney Kevin Finlay.

The incident apparently occurred early Friday morning. Norman police acknowledged the event but no arrests have been made at this time. The alleged victim has been identified, and she said she had never seen Mixon prior to that day, and the punch broke four bones in her face. The alleged victim added she plans to sue Mixon and that she hopes Mixon "goes to prison for years," according to News OK.

TCU redshirt sophomore DE Devonte Fields surrendered to Tarrant County authorities on Thursday and was released after posting bond of $3,500, the Associated Press reports.

Fields was "separated" from the university earlier this week pending an investigation into an incident in which Fields allegedly threatened a woman with a gun; her right cheek was swollen and she had a cut under an eye when the police arrived. The former Big 12 defensive player of the year allegedly pointed a gun at his ex-girlfriend and threatened to "blast" her after an argument. Fields is a big-time on-field talent who has led a troubled off-field existence. If these allegations are proven true, he's done at TCU, and his NFL future would be in serious doubt.

The Texas football team was recently given a random drug test, according to Chip Brown of Horns Digest.

Brown suggests this could be the reasoning for the numerous recent dismissals by head coach Charlie Strong. Two players were dismissed from the team this past spring, and Brown points out it was due to failed drug tests. Running back Joe Bergeron, backup safety Chevoski Collins and running back Jalen Overstreet were recently dismissed for violating team rules. Horns Digest notes two more players are under review.

Despite OSU senior Braxton Miller earning a RB grade from a scouting service, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes the Buckeye is a viable QB prospect.

During the "first half of last season, Miller was a better RB prospect than at QB," Brugler tweeted. "But he showed clear improvement down the stretch. Loads of potential." We are closer to Brugler's stance than the scouting service. Miller missed a good portion of the 2013 season, but we are excited to see if he develops during his final year under Urban Meyer.

Texas HC Charlie Strong dismissed senior RB Joe Bergeron form the team on Thursday, according to Orange Blood's Anwar Richardson.

Charlie Strong does not mess around. Two days after saying Bergeron run was back "in the mix" at the position, the talented running back is off the team. Bergeron missed a large portion of spring activities due to undisclosed issues that have been linked to academics. Johnathan Gray and Malcolm Brown will combine to make up the Horns' backfield.
