247Sports' Erik Skopil reports that Oregon freshman RB Jamal Elliott will transfer.

Perhaps call it a case of buyer's remorse. Elliott (5'10/180) has barely spent a feather's breadth of time with the Ducks in Eugene this offseason, having only just signed on with the program in December. More odd than the fact that the four-star freshman is already transferring -- it happens sometimes -- is the fact that there was little indication that such a move was even remotely in the cards. After enrolling with the program in January, Elliott took part in spring practice without issue. And he seemed to understand his standing on the depth chart, saying in mid-April (a day before the team's spring game) that "redshirting wouldn't be a problem" and that he actually relished the opportunity of a year off to learn the system if that's what Oregon deemed fit. A little under a month later, it looks as though he's gone like the radio on a mountain road. Elliott will have to sit out the upcoming campaign if he keeps his transfer to the FBS.

LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow was spotted in a sling.

Burrow (6'4/216) played well in LSU's bowl win on New Year's Day, so this is likely a minor injury that won't affect his 2019 offseason at all. At least that's what The Advocate's Brooks Kubena is hearing from LSU staff. As a redshirt junior in 2018, Burrow passed for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he began to show more upside later in the season. Burrow should surpass these stats in 2019, assuming he's healthy.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that NFL general managers and scouts believe 70 of the 100 players in the 2019 NFL Draft are defensive players.

The NFL considers this offensive class one of the worst "in a long time" and it's not surprising to walk away with this impression if you spend any time looking at analysts' big boards. A ton of the first-round prospects are defensive lineman, and there's not a lot of top-end talent at running back, among other offensive positions. Most draft analysts aren't impressed with the quarterback class either, so this could be a year where some teams stockpile picks in anticipation for the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler believes Washington State T Andre Dillard is "deserving of first-round consideration."

Dillard (6'5/310) currently sits as the No. 5 offensive tackle prospect on Brugler's top-10 positional rankings behind Jonah Williams, Cody Ford, Greg Little, and Jawaan Taylor. Dillard has tons of experience -- he's a redshirt senior -- and was largely responsible for pass protection in Mike Leach's pass-first offense. Currently sitting on the first-round and second-round borderline, Dillard's combine measurements will be key in his evaluation.

The Athletic's Dane Brugler says "some teams have sky-high grades" on Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown.

This isn't too surprising given the season he just had, but it sounds like Brown (5'10/166) has some Round 1 buzz. Brugler does note that some teams will be off Brown because of his size, but the speedster has drawn comparisons to DeSean Jackson. In 2018, Brown posted a huge 75-1318-10 receiving line and was a major reason why the Sooners and Kyler Murray had successful seasons. Brugler currently ranks D.K. Metcalf and Kelvin Harmon ahead of Brown.

Slippery Rock RB Wes Hills was named the MVP of the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Hills (6'2/215) averaged 7.9 yards on his 10 carries, and he powered his way into the end zone as well. The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports that Hills was turning heads all week at practices and that translated to a big all-star game. Hills claims he went to too small of a high school to get noticed by FBS programs, but it looks like he's on the map as a potential Day 3 selection or priority free agent. As a senior, Hills finished with 1,907 all-purpose yards and 17 touchdowns.

Washington QB Jake Browning completed 7-of-13 passes for 101 yards and two interceptions in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Browning (6'1/206) was considered the top quarterback at NFLPA Collegiate Bowl practices, but it did not translate to the field. These all-star games can be tricky for quarterbacks and receivers to be on the same page, but it's a discouraging performance regardless. Browning needed to have strong showings at all of his draft events to have a better shot of being drafted, and this wasn't a great start outside of the good practices. Consider the Washington quarterback a priority free agent.

Northern Illinois DE Sutton Smith accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Smith (6'1/237) has recently been practicing as a linebacker, and Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says Smith has been "showing a lot of skill in coverage." As a redshirt junior in 2018, Smith had nation-high 15 sacks -- one more than he had in 2017 -- and 26.5 tackles for loss. A very productive player for two seasons with athleticism, Smith is a player to keep an eye on during Senior Bowl practices where he will be playing off-the-ball outside linebacker.

Florida State redshirt senior DT DeMarcus Christmas accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Christmas (6'4/308) was a late add to the South roster, but it's a great opportunity nonetheless. As a redshirt senior, Christmas made 14 tackles (3.0 for loss), but he failed to make a sack. The Draft Network's Joe Marino warns everyone to look past the lack of production and instead focus on his power. Before the season started, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline presented Christmas with a third-round grade.

Georgia WR Terry Godwin caught four passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns for the East All-Stars in Saturday's 21-17 loss to the West All-Stars in the East-West Shrine Game.

While Godwin's squad did not come away with the win on Saturday, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound wideout very much looked the part of a prospect who has an NFL future ahead of him. Both of his touchdown grabs came in the third quarter to make a game of it after the West defense pitched a shutout in the first half. Looking beyond this game, The Draft Network's Joe Marino earlier tagged Godwin as the most consistent receiver during the Shrine practice week, while The Athletic's Dane Brugler loves him as a sleeper prospect. Our real question, now, is whether Godwin might be able to push toward a Day 2 selection. Stay tuned.

Boise State QB Brett Rypien completed 10-of-14 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown for the West All-Stars in Saturday's 21-17 win over the East All-Stars in the East-West Shrine Game.

Rypien (6'2/202) was given an extended run in the contest and performed well on the whole. He got the scoring started with a nicely-lofted 22-yard touchdown pass to LSU RB Nick Brossette early in the first quarter. As far as sleeper Day 3 quarterback prospects go, Rypien has an intriguing profile. While he does not possess an out-and-out howitzer for an arm, he generally can put enough mustard on the ball to get it where it needs to go. He also has a winning pedigree and adequate (if not spectacular) mobility.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Texas redshirt freshman QB Casey Thompson will remain with the program.

Anwar Richardson of OrangeBloods.com was first on this one, reporting via Twitter on Friday evening that Thompson had told HC Tom Herman and staff that he planned on staying with the program. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound redshirt freshman stepped into the transfer portal earlier this month. His return is a welcome one for the program in Austin, as they have already lost two quarterbacks to transfers this offseason in Shane Buechele and Cameron Rising. With Buechele and Rising out the way, now, Sam Ehlinger will be backed up by Thompson and true frosh Roschon Johnson as offseason training gets underway.
