NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes Pitt QB Tom Savage commits the cardinal sin of "backing up in the face pressure."

"But his arm talent and the ability to snap it off, and he also played in an NFL type offense, is very impressive," Cosell said. The NFL Films producer called Savage a "late-round guy" and said the quarterback has the look of a conventional, prototypical pocket passer. The buzz is trending towards Savage being selected in the second-round, which is a bit unbelievable, but the NFL does obsess over big bodied, big armed, quarterbacks who have dropped from center.

The father of five-star 2017 QB Tate Martell says his son decommited from Texas A&M due to the hiring of former UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.

Al Martell, Tate's dad, said the family was not kept in the loop about seismic program shifts, even during multiple campus visits to College Station. "It was different with Mazzone with the whole communication," Al Martell said. "Mazzone had been there two weeks for our visit in January, he had been there maybe all of 10 days ... I get that but when you go out a month later, for two days on that trip, didn’t talk to him once and then when we were there in March for their scrimmage, again, we were there for four days and not once did Mazzone ever talk, and I was five feet from him. Not a handshake, not anything." While Mr. Martell believes Mazzone likes his son, he stated a belief that he's never, during a 35-year coaching career, coached a QB under 6-foot-2. Tate Martell is 5-foot-11. "In Mazzone’s defense maybe that’s where it kind of stems from because everybody he’s offered, even the kids a couple weeks ago, 6-2 and 6-4," Al said.

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze claims he was surprised by former T Laremy Tunsil's revelation that he received cash from a coach while in school, but says he's not involved in the investigation into the claim.

Following the in-draft posting of an alleged conversation between Tunsil and assistant AD of football operations John Miller, Tunsil infamously told reporters after the draft "I’d have to say yeah," when asked if he'd received money from a coach. "I know nothing," Freeze said. "I’m not involved in the fact-finding process. I was shocked like everyone else (last Thursday night) living it out in real time but confident that our administration is going to find the facts and then give us a new report on it." The coach went on to say that "our administration is working, and I’m told they made a lot of progress." Already under investigation by the NCAA and the SEC, Freeze and his program are squarely in the cross-hairs.

Five-star 2017 WR Tyjon Lindsey said he is no longer considering Texas A&M.

Lindsey wrote in a tweet, since deleted, that "due to some tweets subtweeted towards my brother, I will no longer be looking at A&M." The Aggies are facing a bit of a P.R. crisis at the moment. First, five-star QB Tate Martell's decommitment incited a lengthy Twitter tantrum from WR coach Aaron Moorehead. Next, Mannie Netherly, a four-star receiver once committed to the Aggies, tweeted an inference indicating Moorehead may have been the reason he decommitted. Lastly, Lindsey eliminated the Aggies from consideration over concerns about social media decorum. Kevin Sumlin, once the hottest coaching prospect in the land, is now presiding over a veritable mess.

Bill Parcells says NC State QB Jacoby Brissett is cut from the same mold as Patriot greats.

"He's a Curtis Martin, Willie McGinest, Troy Brown type player. That's the kind of guy he is. That's what New England is getting," Parcells said. "Those kinds, those Tedy Bruschi types, those players who've been successful -- he's very similar in his personal life to those kinds of guys." Brissett played high school football near Parcells' home in Florida, so the legendary coach took him under his wing. "I have a very high regard for (Brissett)," Parcells said. "He's an awesome kid. He's very bright. He has zero personal issues. He's a very dedicated, committed guy and I think he's going to the absolute perfect place for him." Despite Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom having pegged Brissett as the class' most underrated QB prior to the Draft and despite Rotoworld's Josh Norris having been one of Brissett's earliest champions, the Rotoworld draft team as a whole was as surprised as anyone else that he ended up getting picked above Connor Cook.

In an analysis published in the Washington Post, Pro Football Focus concluded that the Jaguars came out of the 2016 Draft with the most value per pick.

The site used Chase Stuart’s Draft Value Chart to calculate the value of all 32 teams' hauls by PFF's draft board. As you might imagine, Jacksonville came out smelling like roses after landing FSU DB Jalen Ramsey, the No. 3 player on the PFF board, at No. 5, and UCLA LB Jack, PFF's No. 6 player, at No. 36. "Then they managed to come away with Day, our No. 34 overall prospect, in the fourth round," Jeff Dooley wrote. "Only No. 7-overall pick DeForest Buckner had a higher grade among interior defensive lineman than Day last season."

Five-star 2017 QB Tate Martell decommited from Texas A&M.

Martell is a gigantic chess piece in the 2017 recruiting cycle, the top dual-threat quarterback in the class. The Aggies' coaching staff was not able to hide it's dismay at the development, with A&M WR coach Aaron Moorehead going on a bizarre Twitter rant within minutes of Martell's announcement. "I feel sorry for ppl who never understand loyalty," he tweeted. "I can’t really even vibe with u. At the end of the day trust is 💯 & everything else is BS." The 5-foot-10, 192-pound Martell recently made a trip to Ohio State. His recruiting process is officially back open.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter ranked New Orleans' UDFA class the best in the NFL.

The prospect disbursement process does not end when the Draft does. This year's deep class offered us an assortment of undrafted prospects who would have been picked in past years. The Saints, who had only five picks, dominated in the post-Draft hours. "The Saints found two potential starters in guards Landon Turner and Avery Young (who could end up at tackle eventually)," Reuter wrote. "Offensive tackle Ryker Mathews and centers Jack Allen and Marcus Henry also have NFL futures." The analyst also liked the signing of DBs De'Vante Harris, Ken Crawley, Trae Elston and Michael Caputo and WRs Jordan Williams (tough possession receiver) or Jared Dangerfield (taller downfield threat).

The Ravens' 2016 Draft class earned a perfect A grade from Rotoworld's Evan Silva.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome was up to his old tricks, adding an immediate starter in Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley in Rd. 1 before fortifying his pass rush with Boise State OLB Kamalei Correa and BYU DE Bronson Kaufusi. Correa's selection came after a few trades down the board, which gave Newsome extra ammo to clean up on Day 3. "He selected two corners [Temple CB Tavon Young and Virginia CB Maurice Canady] and couldn't resist the value offered by deep threat [WR Chris] Moore, underrated DT/DE [Willie] Henry, and all-purpose back [Kenneth] Dixon in a dominant fourth round," Silva wrote. "Baltimore's roster has gotten old and stale and needed a major youth injection. This draft accomplished that and then some."

Baylor HC Art Briles says no NFL teams have called about edge rusher Shawn Oakman.

Such is the life of a radioactive prospect. Oakman's pariah status was well-earned. First, he converted top-five NFL Draft physical ability into a mediocre collegiate career through a lackadaisical compete-when-I-want-to attitude. Next, his do-me disposition got him kicked off Penn State and then arrested on a sexual assault charge weeks before the Draft. It's been a swift, cinematic fall off the map for a person who must have been repeatedly told over the years that getting his act together would net millions of dollars in the very near future. A scintillating dream of unrealized potential in his teenaged and early-20 years, Oakman is now, just out of college, a fully actualized failure.

Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby announced that an analytics firm found that adding two teams would increase the league’s odds of reaching the four-team College Football Playoff by 4-5 percent.

Bowlsby and the Big 12 hired Navigate Research, a Chicago-based analytics firm, to conduct the study, which included running 40,000 simulations. "This was the best outcome," Bowlsby said. At this point, it's a matter of time before the Big 12 adds a pair of schools to get back up to 12 teams. Who will those schools be? The American Athletic Conference's Memphis, Cincinnati, UCF and Houston have all been discussed, as has the independent BYU. Memphis and Cincinnati in particular are known to be lobbying hard for Big 12 membership. University of Memphis president M. David Rudd has sent pro-Memphis material to Big 12 higher-ups, namely Texas administrators. The Longhorns have reportedly held up expansion for financial reasons and influenced Texas Tech and TCU to do the same. Texas AD Mike Perrin publicly states that he's keeping an open mind.

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.
