Texans selected Notre Dame NT Louis Nix with the No. 83 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Nix (6-foot-2 3/8, 331) made 30 starts at nose tackle in Notre Dame's 3-4, tallying 14 career TFLs and 2.5 sacks. He missed five games during the 2013 campaign with a knee injury that was repaired surgically by Dr. James Andrews in November. A true two-gap "zero technique" in the Vince Wilfork mold, Nix possesses big hands (10"), relatively long arms (33") for his size, and the playing mentality of a run-stuffing space eater. He may have to sub out on passing downs early in his career, but is quick enough to collapse the pocket with brute power. Nix slipped in the draft after a disappointing final year in South Bend, but at surface level is a perfect fit for Romeo Crennel's scheme. The Texans have an awfully impressive front seven on paper.

Baylor's Bryce Petty and Oregon State's Sean Mannion share the top senior QB grade from one NFL scouting service, according to NFL.com's Andy Fenelon.

The senior quarterback class is not strong this season, but we would place Utah State's Chuckie Keeton in the top spot. Petty's biggest issue is pressure. He frequently looks great against defenses that are overwhelmed by Baylor's offensive prowess and many times is fortunate to see receivers running open. Mannion might be even worse against pressure and is less mobile. We doubt either one are first-round picks.

Incoming Rutgers offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen said he worked this spring to clean up a mechanical issue in senior QB Gary Nova' throwing motion.

"I’ve made one correction with his mechanics," Friedgen said. "He threw the ball on his toes, which puts a lot of pressure on your arm and can lead to arm problems. I was always taught, especially when I was in the NFL, to put your heel in the ground and push off like you’re a pitcher and then get your waist and hips right. It seems to have helped him." This is an important fix, as the former Maryland boss figures to throw more than his predecessors. "My philosophy is to have a balance between run and pass," Friedgen said. "If you’re only one dimensional then they’re going to make you play left-handed and I don’t like to play left-handed. I like to take what the defense gives us."

Washington suspended sophomore QB Cyler Miles for the season opener at Hawaii.

Washington coach Chris Petersen's tenure isn't off to the start he'd hoped. Miles missed spring practices while serving a three-month suspension. He was reinstated in May, but Petersen didn't believe full penance had been served. Miles was allegedly involved in an assault along with WR Damore’ea Stringfellow, who was eventually booted from the team. Miles appeared in eight games last year as Keith Price's backup and is the heavy favorite to replace him as starter. Sophomore QB Jeff Lindquist and redshirt freshman QB Troy Williams are now expected to duke it out to take the first snap of the fall.

Former Washington State redshirt freshman QB Tyler Bruggman will transfer to Louisville.

Bruggman announced the news on Twitter. The redshirt freshman was competing for the No. 2 quarterback job before transferring. Louisville was one of the four schools Washington State released Bruggman to.

USC junior DL Leonard Williams said he played at 65 percent strength/health last season due to a torn labrum.

Williams claims he is currently at 95 percent strength and has gained 15 pounds, as he now weighs 305 pounds. Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman notes Williams just turned 20 years old. If that was Williams at 65 percent, we are pretty excited to see the defensive lineman close to 100. He has a great chance of being this year's top prospect on the defensive side of the ball.

Georgia has dismissed redshirt sophomore DL Jon Taylor following his arrest on Tuesday for aggravated assault.

The recent arrest violated Taylor's probation that stemmed from a "theft by deception" charge, which occurred earlier in the offseason. Taylor was a highly thought of defensive line recruit coming out of high school. Other dismissed Bulldogs have found homes this offseason, but it might be difficult for Taylor.

Baylor WR Antwan Goodley pegged redshirt sophomore WR Corey Coleman as the player to watch this season.

Coleman was the team's leading kick returner and started 10 of 13 games after redshirting his first year on campus. According to his Baylor bio page, Coleman runs a 4.38 forty and posted a vertical jump of 45+", best on the team. He could emerge as a go-to target across from Goodley, if the latter continues to struggle with his catching consistency.

Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops said the school is seeking an immediate eligibility waiver for transfer QB Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield transferred from Texas Tech after just one season. Back in January, Mayfield appealed to Texas Tech since he was never under scholarship with the Red Raiders. He lost that appeal. Trevor Knight will almost certainly start no matter the outcome of Mayfield's appeal. Oklahoma is seeking immediate eligibility for Dorial Green-Beckham as well.

Duke HC David Cutcliffe still plans on using two QBs this season, according to Fox Sports' Lauren Brownlow.

Brandon Connette, who started a number of games for Duke last season while Anthony Boone was recovering from a broken collarbone, transferred this offseason. Many thought the multiple quarterback system disappeared with him. However, Brownlow points to redshirt sophomore Thomas Sirk and redshirt freshman Parker Boehme as possible running/mobile replacements for Connette's role.

Texas A&M beat writer Sean Lester believes freshman WR Speedy Noil was the Aggies' most impressive player during spring activities.

After enrolling early at Texas A&M, Noil "proved he was much more of a college football threat in-waiting than a soon-to-be high school graduate," Lester writes. "The Aggies will be looking for a go-to slot receiver and Noil might be the answer." Texas A&M might need a spark on offense this season, and Noil appears to be an early option.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks believes Joe Flacco is a better comparison for FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston rather than Cam Newton, who Winston compared himself to.

Winston's "game closely resembles the former Super Bowl MVP's play in the pocket," Brooks begins. "From the A-plus arm talent and long delivery to his footwork and sneaky athleticism, it's easy to see Winston developing like Flacco as a pro." We believe Winston's arm is a bit overrated when discussing velocity (i.e. A-plus), but his best traits by far are eye level and pocket awareness. Winston is working to shorten his delivery this season.
