Former Georgia S Tray Matthews is expected to start for Auburn this season.

"He could be the key in helping rebuild a defense that struggled mightily down the stretch last season," ESPN's Greg Ostendorf writes. Matthews transferred to Auburn after his dismissal from Georgia after starting six games for the Bulldogs. Auburn had issues in their secondary in 2014.

Duke redshirt senior LB Kelby Brown will miss his final collegiate season after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

It is the same injury that kept Brown out of the 2014 season. That comes after undergoing two surgeries on his right knee, in 2010 and 2012. Brown has used every season of eligibility and finishes his 32 game career with 242 tackles and 23.5 tackles for loss.

UAB LB transfer Jake Ganus could start for Georgia this season.

UAB players were free to transfer after the program was shutdown (the school has since stated football will return). Ganus was the team's top tackler and was the only Blazer to land in the SEC. "All he did this spring was make plays," according to ESPN's Greg Ostendorf, adding the linebacker was initially brought in for depth, but his role could be much larger.

FSU officials, namely head coach Jimbo Fisher, did not see the video of freshman QB De'Andre Johnson hitting a woman until the Tallahassee Democrat released it Monday.

Fisher was traveling in West Virginia prior to the release. Johnson has now been dismissed, but some were asking why it took FSU officials two weeks to come to this conclusion. The accusation was made on June 26. Now we have an answer, like it or not.

Part of Notre Dame's pitch for senior DL Sheldon Day to return was to help improve his explosiveness.

"They also likely included stats and big plays that come with that ability, something Day’s still working to achieve," writes Keith Arnold. Many have been connecting potential with Day since his freshman season, but we think he is who he is. That isn't a negative, but don't expect Day to transform into a force along the defensive line.

Auburn junior DT Montravius Adams created 35 pressures last season, according to PFF's Jack Farrell.

This was tied for seventh best in the country according to Pro Football Focus. The Tigers will have a number of defensive prospects worth watching, with Adams and edge rusher Carl Lawson up front and linebackers Cassanova McKenzy and Kris Frost at the second level.

Three-star 2016 WR recruit Michael Irvin Jr. committed to Miami.

Irvin Jr. is obviously following in his father's footsteps with this choice. The elder Irvin wore number 47 as a receiver, something we hope young Michael does not continue. Irvin Jr.'s first season will be Brad Kaaya's junior season.

Former OSU three-star OL signee Mirko Jurkovic has not committed to Georgia.

Jurkovic signed his letter of intent with Ohio State back in December but never joined the Buckeyes for summer school. He later said he wasn't admitted to the school, likely for an academic issue. Jurkovic will join Georgia on August 2.

FSU has dismissed suspended freshman QB De'Andre Johnson from the football team.

The video of Johnson punching a woman in a bar went viral today, so this dismissal was only a matter of time. FSU suspended Johnson immediately following the incident. "Johnson's attorney, Jose Baez, said his client is "extremely embarrassed" and is participating in community service and faith-based programs focused on battered women," according to beat writer Sean Rossman. Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery after the State Attorney watched the surveillance video. If Johnson continues his playing career, it will likely have to start at the JUCO level.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes it's hard to match Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller's "confidence level on the field."

"It's hard to match Fuller's confidence level on the field. He loves to make plays, which is why he's more than willing to feast on unsuspecting quarterbacks. Fuller has terrific start/stop quickness, which is what makes him such a ballhawk on short and intermediate throws, and coaches love that he almost never leaves the field," Zierlein wrote. The Virginia Tech prospect posted 54 tackles, with 4.5 for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, with 15 pass breakups and a forced fumble in 2014. Fuller's NFL blood lines run deep and the 6-foot, 197-pounder could be the best of the Fuller clan.

Michigan senior OLB James Ross "does some positive things on film that will appeal to NFL evaluators," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes.

"He has a strong upper body with the aggressive hands to keep himself clean from blocks with excellent take-on strength. Ross has adequate first step quickness to close in a hurry, but he tends to get anxious and will abandon his gap responsibilities too quickly, biting on play fakes and misdirection. He is unsure of himself at times and doesn't always trust what he sees, but with improved discipline to his diet as a senior, Ross will earn himself a spot on draft boards," Brugler wrote. The Michigan prospect played in 12 games, with seven starts for the Wolverines, only posting 32 tackles, and three tackles for loss. In 2013, the 6-foot-1, 232-pound Ross III was much more productive, recording 85 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks LSU junior CB TreDavious White as the No. 2 defensive back to watch in College Football.

"When watching LSU's 2014 game against Alabama, White looked substantially better against Amari Cooper than his teammate, second-round draft pick Jalen Collins. With elite foot quickness, long arms and NFL-caliber speed, White is adept at crowding targets both short and long," Zierlein wrote. The 5-foot-11, 191-pound White has a streak of 24 consecutive starts at cornerback for the Tigers, and is going on his third-year as a starter. The LSU prospect finished the 2014 season with 33 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions.

CBS Sports Dane Brugler believes that Michigan senior LB Joe Bolden has "the grit, instincts and toughness to fill" Jake Ryan's shoes as a senior.

"He recognizes play designs quickly with the foot quickness and lower body fluidity to naturally change directions on a dime to stick with running backs and tight ends out of the backfield. Despite losing Ryan, Bolden has the grit, instincts and toughness to fill his shoes as a senior and parlay that into a draft pick next spring," Brugler wrote. In his first year as a full-time starter, Bolden posted 102 tackles, with 4.0 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. The 6-foot-3, 232-pound Bolden has appeared in 38 games at linebacker, with 16 starts in his career.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves III as the No. 1 defensive back to watch in College Football.

"He plays with advanced ball skills and will look to bait and rob throws in the deep middle (three interceptions last season). Hargreaves can keep up with speed receivers and has the explosiveness to leap and disrupt 50/50 balls," Zierlein wrote. The Florida prospect posted 50 total tackles, leading the Gators and the SEC, with 13 pass breakups last season. Hargreaves III could solidify his potential first-round draft stock with another impressive season.

Michigan redshirt senior CB Wayne Lyons "has the size and length to match-up with receivers on the line of scrimmage and make them uneasy off the snap," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"He does a great job leveraging the field and is physical downhill vs. the run, but he does need to improve his break down skills to complete open field stops. Although he isn't as effective when asked to play off coverage, Lyons has the size and length to match-up with receivers on the line of scrimmage and make them uneasy off the snap," Brugler wrote. The former Stanford Cardinal, brings a veteran presence to Harbaugh's secondary, as the graduate transfer posted 128 tackles, with 66 solo stops and 4.5 tackles for loss in his career.
