NFL Draft Scout Senior Analyst Rob Rang reports that teams were informed that Mississippi State redshirt junior S Brandon Bryant is officially eligible for the supplemental draft.

Bryant (5'11/205) joins Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander and Western Michigan corner Sam Beal as eligible players for the draft, which will take play on July 11. Bryant had academic and off-field issues at Mississippi State, and was not practicing this spring. He offers tremendous athleticism, however, with upper-echelon speed and the ability to deadlift 600 pounds. Rang calls this the most talented supplemental class in years, and it wouldn't be surprising to see all three defenders drafted.

Sports Illustrated ranked Washington senior QB Jake Browning 92nd among their top 100 players for 2018.

Browning is one of three Huskies who have made the list so far in 2018, joined by running back Myles Gaskin (58) and safety Taylor Rapp (55). It wasn't a great season for Browning in 2017 -- at least compared to his breakout 2016 season -- but as SI points out, he's primed for a rebound year. No one should be surprised if the senior signal-caller puts up much bigger numbers in his final year with the Huskies.

ESPN's Chris Low lists USC's non-conference schedule as the second toughest in college football for 2018.

Things don't start out terribly tough for USC -- with all due respect to UNLV -- but it escalates from there. They have their usual bout against Notre Dame, but they also have to face Texas in Austin, which won't be easy at all. As Low points out, that trip to Texas comes after a trip to Stanford. Even with an extension, Helton has to be feeling a little bit of pressure to win games in 2018. It doesn't appear that there's any easy path there for the Trojans.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Toledo junior WR Diontae Johnson a 6th-7th round grade.

He's one of three receivers who have a chance to be drafted, but Pauline lists the 5-foot-1, 181-pound wideout ahead of Jon'Vea Johnson and Cody Thompson. Pauline also believes that Johnson has "a lot to work on" if he's going to be a next-level player. "He’s quick with a burst and though undersized, Johnson plays big football and also produces as a punt returner," Pauline writes. "I am concerned about his consistency as he’s also is prone to dropping catchable throws." Pauline could return to schools if he does get a late Day Three grade, but he -- along with the names mentioned above -- make Toledo a very watchable MAC team.

UTSA received a verbal commitment from four-star 2020 OLB Kelin Burrle.

We don't often see four-star commits end up up at UTSA, but this is potentially a huge get for the Roadrunners. He ranks fourth among players at the position for the 2020 class, and second among players in Louisiana. He also had offers from schools like LSU, Tennessee, Texas A&M and more, so the Roadrunners will have to hold off for a long time to keep his services.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Buffalo senior LB Khalil Hodge a third-round grade for the 2019 draft class.

The "famous" prospects for the Bulls are QB Tyree Jackson and WR Anthony Johnson, but Hodge has a chance to give Buffalo their highest drafted defender since Khalil Mack. Hodge isn't quite that level of prospect -- few are -- but he's a defender who as Pauline writes "shows great quickness and instincts in run defense, firing to ball carriers and bringing them down at the point of attack." Don't be surprised if Hodge is one of the first defenders off the board from the MAC.

North Carolina State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT C.J. Clark.

Clark is a local commitment for the Wolfpack, hailing from North Stanly HS in New London, North Carolina. The 6-foot-3, 305-pound defensive tackle was also considering offers from schools like Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama and South Carolina. He ranks 20th among defensive tackles, and 10th among players from the state. With the commit of Clark, 247 Sports ranks North Carolina State's class 19th in the nation, and fourth among ACC schools.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby a sixth-round grade coming into the 2018 season.

Crosby was a pressure machine for the Eagles in 2017, registering a whopping 53 on the season. He also posted 11 sacks and 57 tackles, 16.5 of them for a loss. Pauline notes that Crosby will need to get strong (6'5/265), but "can bend off the edge and quickly gets into the backfield to disrupt the action." Assuming he has another big season in 2018, he could see his name called on day three -- maybe sooner if a team believes in his upside.
