When LSU HC Ed Orgeron was asked what LSU redshirt senior QB Danny Etling needs to be this season, he said: "game manager."

Coach O has praised Etling this spring, but he's well aware of what Etling's ceiling is. Etling heads into the summer hoping to hold off talented youngsters Lindsey Scott, Lowell Narcisse and Myles Brennan to keep the job. LSU is built to win now, with a superb defense and stud running back Derrius Guice, so Etling's limited-but-reliable style and veteran status makes him the man to beat in OC Matt Canada's first LSU offense. "Danny has practiced with the first team. Nobody has beaten him out yet. Guys are very close," Orgeron said. "We still haven't seen Myles Brennan. Danny's a guy who can go into the game, manage the game, make the short throws, make the checks, be a leader out there, have great pocket awareness. Those are the things we want him to do. He's also very good at throwing the deep ball."

LSU coach Ed Orgeron is "optimistic" that sophomore edge rusher Sci Martin (knee) will be ready for Week 1.

Martin suffered a serious knee injury during the first week of spring practices. As a true freshman last year, he played in five games as Arden Key's backup (in the "buck" role as an OLB/DE hybrid in defensive coordinator Dave Aranda’s 3-4 scheme). Since Martin hasn't used his redshirt, LSU may elect to sit him in 2017 and save a season of eligibility if he's not healed in time.

Penn State redshirt senior WR DaeSean Hamilton will replace Tampa Bay Buccaneers third-round pick Chris Godwin as the Nittany Lions' No. 1 receiver.

Hamilton caught 34 passes for 506 yards over 13 starts for the Nittany Lions last year in a secondary role. With Godwin gone, Hamilton will become the go-to target for QB Trace McSorley. The 6-foot-1, 198-pound Hamilton led the Big Ten with 82 catches as a freshman but had only 79 receptions over the past two years combined.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Northwestern redshirt junior QB Clayton Thorson as the No. 5 underclassmen QB prospect.

Thorson was dreadful in 2015 as a second-year freshman, but he broke through last season, throwing for 3,182 yards with a 22/9 TD/INT ratio. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder has NFL size and athleticism, but he must improve his accuracy (58.6 percent completions last year; 50.8 percent in 2015).

NFL.com analyst and former NFL scout Bucky Brooks writes that Louisville junior QB Lamar Jackson is closer to Robert Griffin III than Marcus Mariota at the moment.

Brooks believes that the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Jackson will be compared by scouts to RGIII and Mariota, both of whom were No. 2 overall picks. Griffin and Mariota were both far better in the pocket in college than L-Jax has been so far, but it's imperative to keep in mind that Jackson has only started for a year-and-a-half and has two seasons of eligibility left. While Jackson remains raw, he has NFL arm strength and a QB guru for a coach in Bobby Petrino. "In the passing game, Jackson is more of a thrower than passer," Brooks wrote. "Despite having a 'big' arm (outstanding arm strength, zip and velocity), he lacks the polished footwork and fundamentals to efficiently work from the pocket. He fails to consistently step into his throws, which leads to struggles with his accuracy and ball placement." The analyst concluded: "[Jackson] has the athletic talent to be a be a game changer at the next level, but he needs to refine his overall game (pocket poise, footwork

Army junior RB Tyler Campbell transferred to Elon.

One of Army’s best offensive skill guys -- Campbell ran for 326 yards on 34 carries (a ridiculous 9.6 yards per carry) as a starting starting slotback last year -- Campbell intends to switch positions at his new school. The Phoenix listed him as a cornerback and returner. Campbell is eligible to play immediately for the FCS school and has two seasons of eligibility left.

Bleacher Report's Kerry Miller believes USF junior TE Elkanah Dillon will become a much bigger part of the offense in 2017 with Marlon Mack and Rodney Adams gone.

Dillon showed off big-play chops in limited opportunities last year, hauling in eight receptions for 177 yards and two touchdowns (22.1 yards per catch). He may be one of Quinton Flowers' favorite targets this fall.

Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen has "ridiculous arm strength" and plays with a "ultra-aggressive" style and a "gunslinger mentality," writes ESPN's Matt Bowen.

Allen also can create both inside and outside of the pocket in Wyoming's pro-style offense. "Allen can get downhill on QB counter and power schemes, plus he becomes a threat to opposing defenses when he pulls the ball down to scramble," Bowen wrote. The analyst echoes the consensus belief that Allen is "still very raw" but boasts more "upside than any QB in this class." Earlier this week, NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah stated a belief that Allen is a better NFL prospect than Patrick Mahomes.
