Boise State hired Jeff Schmedding as co-special teams coordinator and outside linebackers coach.

Schmedding is coming off an impressive 15-year stint at Eastern Washington where he most recently was serving as defensive coordinator. In 2018 as DC, Schmedding led Eastern Washington to the National Championship Game before losing to North Dakota State. The ex-DC also was a special teams coordinator with the program.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

When asked why he returned for his senior season, Utah senior RB Zack Moss said he wants to "be one of the best players to ever walk through this university."

Moss (5'10/215) was considered a Day 2 candidate in the 2019 NFL Draft, so it was a little surprising to see him return to Utah. Moss is doing so to stay true to his goal of being the best of all time, and he believes he only has a chance to do so by staying at school for all four years. As a junior, Moss averaged 6.1 yards on his 179 carries (1,092 yards) and scored 11 touchdowns.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller "can see Round 2" for Memphis RB Darrell Henderson.

Miller also said that Henderson's landing spot is dependent on where Alabama RB Joshua Jacobs gets drafted. Jacobs seems to be a fringe Day 1 prospect as of now -- Daniel Jeremiah mocked Jacobs as the 5th overall pick in his Mock Draft 1.0 -- so a second-round grade for Henderson makes sense to us. Henderson is as productive as a prospect can be, so his final draft grade is dependent on how he tests at the NFL Combine.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline tweets that Alabama T Jonah Williams is getting second-round grades by scouts.

Pauline has been pumping the brakes on top-10 talk for Williams (6'5/301) after speaking with numerous NFL scouts, and he's taken it a step further after speaking with scouts at Shrine practices. The reason why his stock is falling is due to debates whether he can play tackle or if he'll need to kick inside. Playing tackle has always been more valuable, and the NFL is reportedly 50/50 on if he can remain playing outside.

The Draft Network's Joe Marino called Georgia WR Terry Godwin one of the five biggest winners at East-West Shrine practices.

Marino called Godwin "the most consistent receiver all week" and noted his lack of size (5'10/185) didn't stop him from winning battles with corners. The Draft Network has been impressed with Godwin's natural ability, which includes plus route running skills. One of Godwin's biggest issues was a lack of production at Georgia. As a senior, Godwin only caught 23 passes for 385 yards and three touchdowns. That hasn't stopped The Athletic's Dane Brugler from calling Godwin "one of the biggest sleepers in the entire draft class."

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah mocked Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson to the Detroit Lions with the No. 8 overall pick.

Hockenson (6'5/250) is a fringe first-rounder, so it was surprising to see Hockenson all the way up inside the top-10. Jeremiah did say, "This might be a little early for Hockenson" but it does show that Hockenson is generating legit first-round buzz. As a redshirt sophomore, Hockenson posted a 46-717-6 receiving line despite playing alongside fellow first-round tight end prospect Noah Fant.

Troy has hired Auburn graduate assistant Cole Weeks to an offensive assistant role.

The exact role Weeks will serve is not yet known. Weeks spent two years as a graduate assistant for the Tigers. He played quarterback at Southern Miss, and his offensive coordinator was new Trojans HC Chip Lindsey. So far, he's the only assistant from Auburn that he's taken onto the Troy staff.

Notre Dame redshirt junior LB D.J. Morgan announced his intent to transfer.

Morgan played sparingly in his three years with the Fighting Irish, redshirting as a freshman. He switched from safety to linebacker, and could be a candidate to play both positions at whatever school he ends up at. Because he's leaving with his degree, Morgan will be eligible to play at whatever school he lands at.

NFL Draft Scout's Ric Serritella lists Colorado State WR Olabisi Johnson as one of the top performers during NFLPA College Bowl practices.

In fact, Serritella ranks only one player higher than Johnson: Arkansas offensive lineman Hjalte Froholdt. Johnson wasn't as productive as fellow Colorado State WR Preston Williams, but the 6-foot, 203-pound wideout has been on the radars of NFL scouts for a while, and posted a solid 54-796-4 line for the Rams as the second option. "...Johnson flashed smooth feet and proved to be a fluid athlete who appeared to be playing at a higher level than the other wide outs in his group," Serritella writes. "He projects as a solid mid-late round draft pick based on how popular he was for team interview requests."

Central Michigan hired Charlie Frye to be the new QB coach.

Frye, 37, played in the NFL for four seasons after he was drafted in the third round by the Cleveland Browns. He has coached strictly at the high school level since retiring, making CMU his first FBS job.

Texas A&M DL Daylon Mack was listed by The Draft Network's Joe Marino as one of the winners from practices at the East-West Shrine Game.

Mack was one of the most heavily recruited players in the 2015 class, but he never quite lived up to the hype; although he did have 5.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss in his senior year. He certainly reminded analysts of that five-star talent in practices this week, and consistently was named by analysts as a player who stood out. "A gigantic tackle, Mack has an impressive amount of mobility that blends nicely with his powerful frame," Marino writes. "I was really impressed with his hand usage and how heavy and violent his strikes are." Mack earned a trip to the Senior Bowl for his strong work this week, and he appears to be a sleeper for thte 2019 draft.

Arkansas received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Jalen Catalon.

Catalon had a final four of Texas, TCU, Oklahoma and Arkansas, and it's the Razorbacks who ultimately will land the signature -- assuming he hasn't signed already. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound safety is considered one of the best playmakers in the class at the free safety position, and he should have a chance to compete for immediate playing time with Arkansas. Prior to the commitment of Catalon, the Razorbacks class ranked 22nd in 247 Sports list, and that assuredly will go up with this addition.

Virginia LB Chris Peace (hamstring) is not expected to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Peace picked up the hamstring injury during practices, and won't risk picking up a further injury in the exhibition game. He was a third-team All-ACC player who 7.5 sacks for the Cavaliers in 2018.

Football Scoop reports that Coastal Carolina associate head coach Jamey Chadwell will be promoted to head coach of the Chanticleers.

Chadwell coached the Chanticleers in an interim basis in 2017, leading CCU to a 3-9 record while Joe Moglia was on a leave of absence. Moglia is stepping down on a permanent basis, and it's no surprise that they're turning to Chadwell to take the reigns. Chadwell has also served as a head coach for North Greenville University, Delta State and Charleston Southern.

Football Scoop reports that Joe Moglia is stepping down as HC at Coastal Carolina.

Football Scoop also reports that Coastal Carolina will promote Jamey Chadwell to be the new head coach, and Moglia will stick around the program as an administrator. The 69-year-old was in charge of bringing the Chanticleers from FCS to the Sun Belt and went 56-22 record in six seasons. He lead CCU to a 5-7 record in 2018.
