At least forty one of the top collegiate QBs are currently attending the Manning Passing Academy, which ends on July 14.

That list includes: Texas’ David Ash, Clemson’s Tajh Boyd, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, Alabama’s A.J. McCarron, Georgia’s Aaron Murray, Wyoming's Brett Smith, Ole Miss' Bo Wallace, LSU's Zach Mettenberger, Tulane's Nick Montana, Florida's Jeff Driskel, South Carolina's Connor Shaw, UNC's Bryn Renner, Nevada’s Cody Fajardo, and Mississippi State's Brett Russell. We expect more names to emerge, but this is the reported list thus far.

Troy T Antonio Garcia checked in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-6, 302-pounds with 33 3/8-inch arms and 9 7/8-inch hands.

It was an important day for Garcia, who weighed 293 pounds and had 32 1/2-inch arms at the Senior Bowl. First, expect a large number of Senior Bowl measurements to change, as many suspected the lengths were off in Mobile, AL. Second, this places Garcia over a few thresholds teams use for tackles, weight and arm length. Lance Zierlein quoted an OL coach who called Garcia "a thin-waist guy and he doesn't look like he can hold weight." Maybe that is incorrect. We love Garcia as one fo the top tackles in the draft.

When speaking with The MMQB's Emily Kaplan, Texas Tech QB Pat Mahomes stated he is "ready to play Day 1" and "not a project."

"I’m smarter than people think. I know these NFL concepts," Mahomes said. In a recent podcast with Josh Norris, Matt Waldman suggested he would rather start Mahomes early in his career over Deshaun Watson for a variety of reasons. This claim can be made for practically any quarterback, but Mahomes' future coach will have to shift an offense to fit the passer's strength. The conversion from Air Raid to NFL playbook has led to failure for many quarterbacks.

Matt Waldman of the Rookie Scouting Portfolio considers Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly a top three prospect at his position based on talent.

Waldman did not reveal the other two passers that make up the top three, but it certainly breaks groupthink. As of now there are a standard four atop boards: Deshaun Watson, DeShone Kizer, Mitch Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes. Waldman compares Kelly's on-field style to Brett Favre, even looking "bored" at times on the field with what he was asked to do. Waldman cites a coaching clinic where Hugh Freeze discussed Kelly's A.D.D., and Ole Miss' process in shifting their verbage to fit his style.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris suggests Utah T Garett Bolles might push OL agility records at the NFL Combine.

The agility tests include the 3-cone and 20-yard short shuttle. Both Combine records are held by Jason Kelce (7.22 3-cone, 4.14 short shuttle). Bolles, who will be 25 years old prior to his first NFL game, is extremely talented and one NFC scout called him the most athletic player he's evaluated in that area at that position. Bolles has a strong chance of being the first player at his position drafted, despite his older age.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes FSU RB Dalvin Cook has three previous shoulder surgeries to his name dating back to high school.

We all know Cook is extremely talented, but the medicals at the NFL Combine are crucial for his evaluation. Shoulder injuries have caused other ball carriers to drop in the draft, namely Chris Polk and Lamar Miller. Cook has played through upper and lower body ailments over the last few seasons, arguably carrying the Seminoles offense in that time. He has balance to win after contact and obvious big play skills.

In a statement, Michigan State HC Mark Dantonio said that "[w]hen the time is appropriate, I will be able to answer questions regarding our program and discuss our team."

This was the first time that Dantonio publicly addressed the indefinite suspensions of three players and a staffer who are being investigated for an alleged sexual assault. His released statement spoke mostly in generalities, as one might expect given that the assault in question is still being investigated. Said Dantonio, "I expect all members of the football program to live up to those standards [set by AD Mark Hollis], and I’m doing everything necessary to help throughout this difficult process." He also said that "the allegations are something we’re extremely concerned about and taking very seriously."

Michigan State four-star 2018 verbal WR commit Joseph Scates has reopened his recruitment.

Just about a week ago, Scates was saying that he was "still solid" with the Spartans. Not so much anymore. Stay tuned to see if Alabama had something to do with this. The 6-foot-4, 180-pounder received an offer from the Tide after visiting them over the weekend. On the 247Sports composite, Scates ranks as the No. 129 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Oklahoma redshirt senior QB Baker Mayfield apologized for his weekend arrest on charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing.

"I made the biggest mistake of my life by putting myself in this situation," Mayfield wrote on social media. "I know that I represent the University of Oklahoma on a very large scale, therefore I know better than to bring bad attention and scrutiny to the school and people that I love." The Heisman finalist was arrested early on Saturday morning. Per the police report, he had been trying to break up an altercation, but became profane after officers asked him to stay put. He was eventually tackled after he attempted to exit stage left when approached for questioning. He reportedly showed signs of slurred speech and had difficulty walking. The university has not punished Mayfield publicly as of yet and it is possible that discipline could be handled internally. The quarterback is set to appear in court on April 7.

The Citadel graduate CB Dee Delaney transferred to Miami.

Here is a little fun one for your Tuesday, as Delaney flipped the familiar "FBS-to-FCS" transfer move on its head. This isn't a minor get for the Hurricanes, either. The 6-foot-1, 191-pound Delaney has been named All-FCS each of the past two seasons. During the 2016 campaign, he picked off six passes. His 13 career interceptions are second most in school history.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Tennessee will hire Kansas State AD John Currie to serve in the same capacity.

Chattanooga AD David Blackburn had gone on the record as saying that he was interested in the job earlier this month, but looks like the Volunteers have opted to move in a different direction. Currie is an alumna of Tennessee, having earned his master's degree in sports management at the university. He has been with Kansas State since 2009. Outgoing AD Dave Hart is expected to stay on the job into the summer before handing over the reins to Currie.

Miami graduate RB Gus Edwards transferred to Rutgers.

Edwards announced his intention to move on from Miami back in January, in the hopes that he could move closer to his newborn son on the East Coast. After sorting through his options, he has opted to finish out his collegiate career with the Scarlet Knights. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder will be eligible to play immediately as a graduate transfer come the start of the 2017 campaign. This past season, Edwards finished as Miami's third-leading rusher with 290 yards (4.9 YPC).
