Louisville junior QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 16 of 28 attempts for 250 yards and a touchdown in the 27-13 win over Kentucky.

Bridgewater added 35 rushing yards on six carries. The entire offense was slow out of the gates, but Bridgewater showed great poise and pocket presence once again. His touchdown occurred in the left corner of the endzone and was a lofted pass highpointed by Davante Parker. Kentucky dropped at least one interception, but Bridgewater continues to show his skills.

SI's Peter King reports that the Ravens had "reliable information" that the Patriots would try to draft Navy RB/WR Keenan Reynolds in Rd. 6 before Baltimore beat them to it.

Baltimore plucked Reynolds with the No. 182 overall pick. New England had a pair of sixth-rounders later in the stanza. King reports that the Ravens will likely as Reynolds to be an "all-purpose weapon ... returning, rushing, receiving, sort of a latter-day Antwaan Randle-El ... receiver/returner, and maybe a direct-snap back." GM Ozzie Newsome and assistant GM Eric DeCosta found out that Reynolds was learning how to return from Brian Mitchell, one of the all-time greats at it. HC John Harbaugh called Mitchell, a former player, and was told that Reynolds "could be a gifted returner." The rest was history.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that the team unsuccessfully tried to trade back into Rd. 1 for Memphis QB Paxton Lynch and further admitted that he regretted not having met Seattle's asking price.

In MMQB's look into Dallas' War Room, we learned that Dallas was prepared to move from No. 4 to No. 6 if Baltimore gave them a third-rounder. The Ravens would only offer a fourth, so that deal was scuttled and Dallas took Ezekiel Elliott. Jones' next goal was to find a way to get Lynch, who Dallas ranked No. 12 overall. Dallas offered Nos. (Rd. 2) 34 and (Rd. 3) 67 to teams in the late-teens and early-20s before amending the offer to a second and fourth in the mid-20s. In the end, the Broncos beat the Cowboys to the No. 26 pick and Lynch by offering Seattle 31 and 94, whereas Dallas' best offer was 34 and 101. "If I had to do it all over again?" Jones said. "I’d give the three." Dallas took Jaylon Smith at 34. The story also includes the tidbit that the Cowboys slightly preferred Connor Cook to Dak Prescott and tried to trade up one spot to get him, ultimately losing out to Oakland's offer to Cleveland.

Bucs signed Auburn RB Peyton Barber.

Barber (5'10/228) spent one season as the Tigers' starting tailback, managing 1,017 yards and 13 TDs on 238 carries (4.27 YPC). He only caught 11 passes in his college career. A grinding plodder with scant passing-game experience, Barber ran 4.64 with a sluggish 9-foot-3 broad jump in Indianapolis. Barber has drawn glass-half-full comparisons to Alfred Morris, but ultimately is likely to struggle to carve out a substantial NFL career.

Marshall senior S Tiquan Lang faces multiple charges following a Saturday morning arrest.

Lang is charged with driving under the influence, possession of a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a controlled substance, all misdemeanors. Police found him passed out in a running car. Once they woke him, they discovered a Glock 27 under the seat. Xanax and the odor of marijuana were also found, though the pot itself couldn't be located and Lang said the Xanax had a prescription (the police will drop that charge if he presents it). Lang returned two interceptions for scores and was second on the team with 91 tackles last year.

Utah State dismissed redshirt junior G Tyshon Mosley.

The Aggies wouldn't say why, outside of a violation of unspecified team rules. This isn't the first time that Mosley has gotten in trouble. He lost the first two games of last season to suspension, for instance. His latest indiscretion leaves Utah State minus a starting, All-Mountain West Conference-caliber guard.

49ers signed Oregon DT Alex Balducci.

Balducci, 2014 first-rounder Arik Armstead and 2015 first-rounder DeForest Buckner all played on the same defensive line at Oregon. Balducci (6'4/309) made 29 starts at defensive tackle for the Ducks, finishing his career with 10.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. He was selected honorable mention All-Pac 12 as a senior. Balducci showed passable athleticism for his size at Oregon's Pro Day, running 5.01 with a 9-foot-5 broad jump and 33-inch vertical. In the NFL, Balducci best projects as a rotational early-down run stopper.

Thirty players who declared for the 2016 NFL Draft early went undrafted.

In the end, 107 players left college with remaining eligibility, with 28-percent of them ultimately going undrafted. That list is headlined by names like DL Darius Latham, S Tyvis Powell, RB Peyton Barber and WRs Roger Lewis, Marquez North, Jalin Marshall and De’Runnya Wilson. Some players were running from disciplinary or academic issues, while some just badly misjudged their value.

AL.com's Matt Zenitz reports that former Alabama DL coach Bo Davis is being investigated by the NCAA for impermissible contact with recruits.

Davis tendered his resignation on Friday. There were rumors of possible recruiting violations in the air and those rumors took on extra heft with AL.com's report. Per Zenitz, "Davis is accused of visiting multiple out-of-state recruits during a period when coaches aren't allowed any contact with recruits." He went on to write that none of the recruits in question ultimately signed with Alabama. The NCAA got in touch with Bama's compliance office and spoke with Davis regarding these allegations -- Zenitz hears that they caught him being dishonest -- after which he resigned.

Four-star QB Lowell Narcisse committed to LSU for 2017.

Whether HC Les Miles is even around to see Narcisse join the Tigers is a story for another day, but at least for now, he can rest contented with the knowledge that he landed a stud quarterback commitment. The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder announced his decision via Twitter and thanked the other programs that had danced with him. Among those, heavy hitters in Alabama and Auburn. ESPN 300 ranks him as their No. 38 overall prospect and No. 1 dual-threat QB for the 2017 cycle.

Pro Football Focus believes that the Bears' selection of Florida DE Jonathan Bullard was the best pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The context here is key. As analyst Gordon McGuinness noted, "To find a defensive lineman with Bullard’s upside in the third round [at pick No. 72] is ridiculous value." He went on to write that "Bullard isn’t even a high-risk, high-reward type player. His run-stopping ability will most certainly translate to the NFL after he led all of college with a +51.5 run defense grade a year ago." McGuinness and the fine folks at PFF are less certain as to Bullard's potential NFL success against the pass.

ECU graduate QB Kurt Benkert will transfer to Virginia.

Because he will be transferring as a graduate, Benkert will be eligible to play immediately. He announced his decision via Twitter, writing, "I'm ready for the next chapter, it's going to be a great [two] years!" The 6-foot-3, 225-pound gunslinger did not play in 2015 due to a knee injury. One possible reason for the transfer to Virginia, specifically -- former ECU HC Ruffin McNeill (who was fired at the end of the 2015 campaign) was hired as an assistant with the Cavaliers earlier this offseason.
