NFL.com's Bucky Brooks writes that Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage is "nowhere near ready to compete for a starting job in the NFL."

As the hype around Savage grows, and his draft stock soars as a result, it's easy to lose track of the fact that he's a long, long way away from a pro field, and much has to break right in his development to become a long-term NFL starter. "He is erratic with his accuracy and ball placement," wrote Brooks. "He needs to work on controlling the velocity on his ball to make it easier for receivers to catch his passes. Additionally, Savage must develop better footwork and mechanics in the pocket to make up for his lack of athleticism and mobility." Some believe the Panthers' product is headed for the second round, but Brooks cautions against that level of investment. "Given the work Savage needs to do to become a potential starter, he will earn developmental grades (Rounds 4-7) on most boards and enter the league viewed as a probable No. 3 quarterback as a rookie," he wrote.

Georgia DC Mel Tucker has been awarded a $900,000 raise.

Tucker made $600,000 for the 2017 season. He'll be buying a few extra Christmas presents next winter, as he's now set to make $1.5 million in 2018. For reference's sake, only four assistants made at least $1.5 million for the past year -- LSU DC Dave Aranda, LSU then-OC Matt Canada (who moved on to Maryland earlier this winter), Texas A&M then-DC John Chavis (now with Arkansas) and Clemson DC Brent Venables.

Kansas State DC Tom Hayes has retired.

Hayes' impending retirement was reported as in the works by many an outlet near the end of January, with K-State now officially confirming that the longtime coach would be stepping off into the sunset. It's been a long ride for Hayes, who's been working sidelines -- both collegiate and NFL -- since 1977. He's served as Kansas State's defensive coordinator since 2012. With Hayes stepping down, LB coach Blake Seiler will receive a bump up to DC.

Fresno State signed uncommitted four-star 2018 C Tyrone Sampson.

Better late than never? Believe it or not, Sampson actually planned on signing with Syracuse in December and enrolling early with the Orange. He had been committed to the program for eight months before having a last-minute change of heart. Ole Miss and Nebraska then emerged as fresh options for the 6-foot-3, 304-pounder, but scheduled official visits to those programs in the lead-up to National Signing Day were ultimately canceled, leaving Sampson up in the air when the remainder of the 2018 class signed with their respective programs on Feb. 7. Fresno State entered the fray late and hey, what do you know, they gain a four-star center, now. Not too shabby for HC Jeff Tedford and company. He's got a nasty temperament on the field to pair with rock-solid fundamentals and technique.

Transferring Rice redshirt senior DT Preston Gordon said that he has been in contact with Alabama.

Gordon (6'1/280) was a three-year starter for the Owls. He opted to transfer out earlier this winter. He indicated that if the Tide want him, he would have "high, high interest" in potentially joining the champs. Alabama signed just two defensive linemen in their 2018 recruiting class and Gordon could have a real shot at breaking into rotation should he join the boys down in Tuscaloosa. As for other possible landing spots, he's visited Texas Tech and Kansas, with Syracuse, TCU, Tulane and UConn also on his radar. During the 2017 campaign, Gordon registered 34 tackles (4.5 for loss), a sack and two passes defensed. He'll be eligible to play immediately as a graduate transfer once he finds a new home.

Utah redshirt sophomore WR Britain Covey has returned from his LDS mission and will join the Utes this fall.

Covey hasn't played for Utah since 2015, as he left in spring of 2016 to fulfill his two-year LDS mission. He was one of the Utes best receivers in 2015 as a freshman; catching 43 passes for 519 yards and scoring four touchdowns. The shifty 5-foot-8, 166 pound receiver also excelled as a punt returner, and he could be a massive return for a team that had significant losses this offseason in the receiving corps.

New Mexico HC Bob Davie will begin his 30-day suspension on Saturday.

Davie has been suspended for 30 days without pay following an investigation into possible interference in several investigations into possible sexual assaults by New Mexico football players. A report from an outside firm did not ultimately find wrongdoing on Davie's end, but the university is using this as an opportunity to send a message in terms of their culture. With the head coach sidelined for the next month, DC Kevin Cosgrove will assume acting duties. Davie's suspension will end on March 18.

Cal assigned a redshirt to WR Demetris Robertson for the 2017 season, meaning he will be classified as a redshirt sophomore for the 2018 campaign.

Robertson (6'1/180) underwent surgery to repair a lower-body injury at the beginning of October and did not play another down for the Golden Bears in the 2017 season from that point on, hence why he was eligible for the redshirt. The former five-star recruit posted a 50-767-7 receiving line as a true freshman in 2016 and has the talent to level up on those respectable numbers so long as he can maintain his health. Robertson could potentially jump to the NFL after the upcoming season.

Michigan State extended the contract of HC Mark Dantonio through the 2024 season.

Dantonio signed what's termed a "rolling contract" back in 2016, which means that one year is added annually. Per reporters who were present when the one-year extension was approved by MSU's board of trustees this month, there was no real discussion of withholding an additional year on the deal. For all of his on-field success with the Spartans -- Dantonio has compiled a 100-45 record during his decade in East Lansing -- the coach was recently cited in an Outside the Lines report regarding a culture of sexual abuse and violence at the university. At this juncture, it appears that his job remains safe.

Local television station KWTX is reporting that two Baylor players have been interviewed in relation to an open sexual assault case.

Names have not been released in this matter due to privacy laws and Baylor has yet to issue a statement on the case. The alleged incident occurred on Nov. 11 and four students -- at least two football players -- have been interviewed by authorities, according to KWTX's report. Citing the criminal case report, the outlet notes that there are believed to be images and video of the suspected assault. No arrests have been made as of this time, but the case investigation remains an open one.

Multiple outlets are reporting that the five finalists to host the 2019 and 2020 NFL drafts are Nashville, Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City and Cleveland.

The NFL Draft was once a mainstay for New York City, but the Big Apple has not hosted the event since 2015. Chicago hosted festivities the next two years, followed by Philadelphia last spring and Dallas this year. Of the five potential cities to host in 2019 or 2020, Las Vegas would be the most intriguing, as the Raiders will be moving there (potentially as early as 2019) and the city's hosting of the draft would serve as a sort of grand opening for Vegas as an NFL stage.

Western Michigan promoted OL coach/co-OC Jake Moreland to offensive coordinator.

Moreland already had co-offensive coordinator status, but now receives the bump up to the full-time gig. He'll continue to work with the offensive line in addition. The Broncos needed a new offensive coordinator after Texas Tech poached OC Kevin Johns from the program. This past season was Moreland's first at Western Michigan. Previously, he's worked at Air Force (2016), Syracuse (2015) and Air Force again (2012-14).
