NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes Florida junior QB Jeff Driskel could be the No. 2 senior passer behind Bryce Petty next season.

This is all under the assumption that Driskel returns from season ending knee surgery. "At 6-4, 240 pounds, he's a big guy who throws the ball well and is a very good athlete; he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 29th round this June," Brandt writes. Our own Josh Norris thinks Driskel panics under pressure far too often, and it is an area that needs considerable improvement.

LSU power forward Brian Bridgewater will transition to football as a TE this fall.

He hasn't spoken to head coach Ed Orgeron about the move yet, but intends to. If Coach O isn't okay with it, Bridgewater may transfer elsewhere. "That’s a possibility, if things go according to how they’re supposed to," Bridgewater said of joining the Tigers football team. "Hopefully that’s an option. If not I’ll have to see what door opens for me." The 6-foot-5, 282-pounder was ranked as the No. 27 tight end in the country by 247 Sports coming out of high school. As for recent examples of a similar situation working, ex-Baylor PF Rico Gathers spent the 2016 NFL season on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.

Alabama hired former Rams QB coach Chris Weinke as an offensive analyst.

The former Florida State Heisman winner spent the past two seasons as the QB coach of the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, moonlighting on "Hard Knocks" last summer as Jared Goff's mentor. Weinke, a former Carolina Panthers quarterback, got the job expected to go to Clint Trickett, who instead was hired by FAU as TE coach.

A scout for an NFC North team says Miami WR Stacy Coley "needs a lot of work" but "has enough talent to play in the league."

"I just have doubts that he loves the game," the scout said. "He is notorious over there for kind of coasting on his talent rather than putting in the work he should be. If he's not committed to the NFL process, he will be gone early." Coley received a Day 3 grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board last January. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares him to Chris Harper. "Best-suited as a vertical slot receiver who can stretch the field and uncover underneath thanks to athleticism and burst," Zierlein wrote. "Raw and might not have the football character necessary to make a dent in the league. However, he has the athletic traits that could make a viable slot option with big-play potential." Coley was named third-team All-ACC last year.

Ole Miss freshman DT Tae-Kion Reed was arrested and charged with burglary.

The police say Reed (6-foot-4, 298 pounds) attempted to burglarize a home. The 19-year-old is a three-star prospect, according to 247 Sports' composite rankings. "We are gathering facts on the matter," an Ole Miss spokesman said. Recruitniks will recognize Reed as the prospect who threw a Mississippi State hat across the room on National Signing Day and put on Ole Miss hat.

Baylor indefinitely suspended senior CB Travon Blanchard after he was accused of multiple acts of violence against against a woman.

A restraining order has been placed against Blanchard on behalf of the woman.

"Immediately upon notification on February 7, the appropriate campus student-conduct process was initiated and Blanchard was suspended indefinitely from all team related activities, pending the outcome of the investigation." The affidavit alleges that Blanchard, in addition to physical violence, "controls many aspects of the applicant's life."

Utah T Garett Bolles arrived at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-5 and 297-pounds.

Bolles also has 34-inch arms and 9 3/8-inch hands. The 24-year-old Utah tackle is expected to be one of the top athletes among offensive linemen, if not the top. Many suggest he could land as a top 20 pick, but others might be turned off due to the sub-300 pound weight.

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.
