ESPN's Travis Haney believes Cal junior QB Jared Goff is a superb Heisman value at 50-1 odds.

We agree. "There’s a sense from Pac-12 folks that Goff -- a QB prototype at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds -- could really break out in his third season and elevate his name on NFL draft boards," Haney wrote. "The Heisman radar could very well work in concert with Goff’s professional prospects." Goff threw for 3,973 yards on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio last year. The Bears will be much improved in 2015.

Yahoo's Eric Edholm ranks Cal junior QB Jared Goff as the No. 2 draft prospect.

Joey Bosa, of course, was No. 1. "Yes, over quarterbacks such as Christian Hackenberg, Cardale Jones and Connor Cook," Edholm wrote of Goff. "Goff has a chance to go supersonic this season playing in Sonny Dykes' 'Air Raid' offense and is often compared to, style-wise, former Bears QB Aaron Rodgers." The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Goff threw for 3,973 yards last year in 12 games. Throwing for 5,000 isn't out of the question in 2015.

Cal junior QB Jared Goff "has a lot of good tools, particularly his release, and he's bulked up to 210 pounds heading into this season," reports SB Nation's Dan Kadar.

"He's a player to watch who could really rise throughout the season," wrote Kadar. You know we agree. Rotoworld is driving the Goff bandwagon along with ESPN's Mel Kiper, who ranks him No. 9 on his 2016 Big Board. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound star threw for 3,973 yards last year and we're predicting well more than 4,000 this time around. Rotoworld's Josh Norris compares Goff to Jimmy Garoppolo.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Cal junior QB Jared Goff No. 9 on his 2016 Big Board.

"The big sell here is a big-time arm," he wrote. "Goff can drill the ball down the field and into tight windows with ease, and he has strong movement skills and anticipation for a player with good length who seems to see the whole field. Goff's totals are going to be significant, so the question of whether the skills translate quickly will be the key question." The 6-foot-4, 210-pound star threw for 3,973 yards last year on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio. In that offense, he should comfortably exceed 4,000 yards in 2015. Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted Goff No. 15 in a recent mock draft and compared him to Jimmy Garoppolo.

ESPN's Todd McShay mocked Cal junior QB Jared Goff to the Cardinals at No. 9.

"The Cardinals eventually need to find a long-term replacement at quarterback for Carson Palmer, who will turn 36 this year," he wrote. "Goff has good size (6-4, 210 pounds), a big arm and is a naturally accurate passer. He was really productive as a true sophomore in 2014: 3,973 yards, 35 TDs, 7 INTs." Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted Goff No. 15 and compared him to Jimmy Garoppolo. "He is willing to look at multiple receivers and has a quick motion," Norris wrote. "However, some will question his velocity since defensive backs are frequently close to making plays on his passes."

The FBS is adding three more bowl games in 2015, bringing the total to 42.

If you think bowl season boasts too many games, then tune out these three new contests. Per Brett McMurphy, the three games are in Tucson (Mountain West vs. Conference USA), Austin (AAC vs. Sun Belt) and Orlando (AAC vs. Sun Belt).

Cal WR Chris Harper "is at his best as a slot or underneath target" at the next level.

The Cal prospect decided to leave early for the NFL, unfortunately, Harper did not receive an invite to the combine to showcase his talents. The 6-foot, 180-pounder had a down year in 2014, hauling in 52 receptions, six receiving touchdowns, and 634 receiving yards. Harper posted 70 receptions for a team-leading 852 yards and five touchdowns the previous season. The Seahawks have shown interest in Harper, and brought him in for an official visit with the team.

Cal WR Chris Harper will visit the Seahawks.

Harper was an early draft entrant but did not receive a Combine invitation. His numbers dipped during his final season at call, but Harper is a lean receiver who wins with agility.

Cal DL Brennan Scarlett intends to transfer.

Rivals' Andy Drukarev, who covers Stanford, says the Cardinal are a "very possible destination" due to depth. Scarlett's brother is also a member of Stanford's 2015 class. Scarlett is eligible to play immediately after graduation. He has a large injury history which ended multiple seasons.

Cal WR Chris Harper, who declared early for the draft, did not receive a Combine invite.

Harper posted 52 receptions, six receiving touchdowns, and 634 receiving yards this year, which was actually a drop down from the previous season. Worse receiver prospects were invited to the event, but Harper will definitely qualify for a regional combine.

Cal junior WR Chris Harper will forego his last season of eligibility and declare for the NFL draft.

It's a surprising decision, as Harper could have helped himself by spending one more season in Cal's pass-happy offense. He posted 52 receptions, six receiving touchdowns, and 634 receiving yards this year. "After having many talks with my family, mentors and coaches I have decided that declaring for the NFL Draft was best for me at this time," Harper stated. "Millions of different thoughts and prayers have been put into this educated decision which is why I have decided to enter the draft." A scout "familiar with the program" called Harper a "poor man's DeSean Jackson" over the summer. Harper has a wiry (5-foot-11, 170 pounds) frame and great agility, though he is not as fast (4.53 forty) nor skilled as Jackson.

Cal senior LS John Sheperdson accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Sheperdson, Cal's three-year snapper, has gone 37 consecutive games without an errant snap. That streak spans his entire career, so Sheperdson should be snapping in an NFL camp near you over the summer.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff boasts sound mechanics and natural accuracy as a thrower, according to Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio. "The 6-4, 210-pound sophomore throws with excellent balance and has above-average accuracy and touch at all three levels," the duo wrote. "Goff also shows strong poise handling the pocket, and flashes the ability to scan the entire field and work through his progression. He will hold on to the ball for too long at times, and can speed up his internal clock, but overall, he has a very high ceiling and a bright future if he can continue to hone his craft." We love Goff's arm and long-term potential, but want to see him work on his accuracy when pressure forces him off his spot.

Former USC DL DeVante Wilson has transferred to Cal with two years of eligibility remaining.

Wilson has played at the JUCO level for the last two seasons after leaving USC following his first season. He tore his ACL prior to that first season after being signed as a three-star recruit.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl said Cal "is in great hands the next few years" with sophomore QB Jared Goff.

"Polish stands out at an early age," Weidl wrote. "Naturally accurate thrower." Goff couldn't quite lead the 5-7 Golden Bears to a bowl game, but expect that to change next season. The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio.
