NFL scouts have pegged Buffalo senior OLB Khalil Mack as a top 60 pick, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline himself gave Mack a second-round grade, so praise is being distributed form every angle. The Bull has shown versatility as an edge rusher and strong side linebacker behind a four man front, but the biggest questions may be off the field. Mack was suspended for the school's first game in 2012 after getting into a fight. He will face a solid test in Ohio State on August 31.

Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty (back) believes he'll start against Northwestern State on Saturday.

Petty was diagnosed with two cracks in the transverse processes of his back after Sunday's win against SMU. "That’s my goal towards the rest of the week," Petty said. "You can’t do anything worse to it, so if it’s bearable, I’ll do it." Petty completed 13-of-23 throws for 161 yards (he also rushed for 21 yards and a touchdown) versus the Mustangs before leaving the game at halftime. The injury isn't yet healed, but Petty says he won't aggravate it by playing. "It’s like a pinkie," Petty said. "You can’t do much except just brace it up and wait for it to heal. Football is football, you have pain. Might as well get rewarded for it. I’ve watched for too long, put on the headset too many times for me to sit if I can be out there." Baylor coach Art Briles said backup Seth Russell is ready to start if Petty can't go.

USC junior DL Leonard Williams is nursing a high-ankle sprain that "will probably make him less than 100 percent against Stanford," reports Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Williams rolled an ankle during Tuesday's practice. He was checked out by the team's trainers and given an ankle brace for his left foot. Williams did not return to the practice field. While the injury isn't expected to force him out of game action, it's a little disconcerting nonetheless. Williams, after all, played with a torn labrum last season and comes with durability concerns. He's so monstrously talented, however, that he made 74 tackles last season as a 290-pounder playing at, in his own estimation, 65 percent strength/health. We'll be curious to see how much mobility he retains in Saturday afternoon's monster matchup against the Cardinal.

Rutgers redshirt junior RB Paul James reminds CBS Sports' Dane Brugler of "a not-as-cut version of Chargers back Ryan Mathews."

James showed "why he has a future at the next level," wrote Brugler, by running for 173 yards and three touchdowns in last week's 41-38 win over Washington State. "James did an outstanding job lowering and squaring his pads, running with purpose and finishing each run," Brugler wrote. "He stayed balanced through contact and although he's not overly shifty or explosive, Ryan showed the start/stop quickness to cut back, using vision to find secondary lanes. He clearly loves running north-south with forward lean and keeps his legs churning through contact, making him a chore to tackle. James led Rutgers with 881 yards a year ago and is well on his way to breaking the 1,000-plus barrier this season. And NFL scouts have taken notice." The 6-foot, 210-pounder runs a 4.62 forty.

Utah State redshirt junior OLB Kyler Fackrell tore his right ACL in Sunday's game against Tennessee and is out for the season.

The Aggies' had a devastating weekend, getting punted by Tennessee as a small underdog, seeing Chuckie Keeton's Heisman hopes go up in smoke, and then losing their havoc-wreaking star outside linebacker for the season. "The versatile linebacker entered the season as a possible early round pick next spring, but this setback puts those projections on hold," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote. ESPN's Mel Kiper listed Fackrell at No. 18 overall on his initial big board. Perhaps Fackrell will return for his fifth-year senior campaign, after all.

USC redshirt junior QB Cody Kessler did not practice on Tuesday after undergoing toe surgery to fix a case of staph infection, according to Inside USC's Scott Wolf.

Kessler told reporters the injury was minor and he will return on Wednesday. Some pointed out the quarterback was walking gingerly through the tunnel after the school beat Fresno State 52-13. Kessler looked pretty impressive and continued his improvements that began during the second half of last season.

Tennessee redshirt senior LT Jacob Gilliam will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

The Vols are starting an entirely new offensive line, and Gilliam will now need to be replaced on the left side. The former walk-on had never started a game until the season opener against Utah State.

South Carolina HC Steve Spurrier now believes junior RB Mike Davis will play against ECU.

Spurrier previously stated Davis was "sort of doubtful" for the game, but that has obviously changed. The running back was held in check for the school's season opening loss against Texas A&M and did not start the contest. Davis has been dealing with a rib injury.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman hears from a source that UCLA redshirt junior C Jake Brendel will miss at least one more game due to a knee injury.

Note that Feldman adds it will be "at least" the next game, so more is still an option. "No matter how big and strong (Brett Hundley) is, he might not last this season if UCLA doesn't get its issues up front sorted out," Feldman writes. The longtime college football writer does point out UCLA started 275 lbs freshman guard Najee Toran. We would note Hundley has his own issues when pressured, so the combination could be a bad one.

Baylor redshirt junior DL Shawn Oakman totaled two sacks and another assisted tackle for loss in the school's 45-0 win over SMU.

Oakman has been a longtime favorite of Rotoworld's Josh Norris, and his performance on Sunday showed why. The massive defensive lineman mainly came off the bench last year, but he is a full time starter in 2014. From the first play, Oakman lined up in a three-point stance on the outside of SMU's offensive tackle and went on to play inside as a defensive tackle and stand up on the edge. Oakman's combination of strong hands, length and closing speed is what makes him so disruptive.

Texas redshirt senior C Dominic Espinosa suffered a broken right ankle against North Texas and will almost certainly miss the remainder of the 2014 season.

Texas lost quarterback David Ash to another head injury in the same game. Including the school's latest win over North Texas, Espinosa had started 40 straight games for the Horns, every contest after redshirt his first year in Austin.

One NFC personnel member texted NFL media report Albert Breer that Texas A&M OC Jake Spavital "will be a head coach sooner rather than later."

"He has 'it' in spades," the NFL staffer added. Another NFL personnel man concurred after Breer tweeted the quote. Spavital is only 29-years-old, but obviously many NFL and college decision makers were impressed by the quick offensive turnaround he managed to produce with the Aggies losing Johnny Manziel, Mike Evans and Jake Matthews.
