Pro Football Focus analyst Gordon McGuinness noted that Missouri LB Kentrell Brothers "would make a lot of sense [for the Broncos], particularly as a second- or third-round pick if he fell that far."

Wrote McGuinness, "[Brothers] might not be the perfect prospect, but he was incredible against the run, finishing the year with the second-highest grade in that regard. Additionally, he totaled 78 defensive stops — the most of any linebacker in college last year." The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Mizzou product was absolutely fantastic on a statistical level this past season, logging 152 total tackles (12 for loss), 2.5 sacks, a pair of interceptions and a forced fumble. He might not supply the most eye-popping measurables, but he makes up for that with his football intelligence (he scored a 28 on the Wonderlic). NFL Media analyst Chad Reuter sees him falling somewhere in the middle of the second round.

Missouri redshirt junior RB Morgan Steward (hip) has retired.

Steward initially suffered the hip injury during August camp in 2014. He underwent surgery in November of that same year. Said the 6-foot, 209-pound redshirt junior last summer, "Really, my hip joint popped out of place, I tore things around it and some of the bone." While he was able to play in three games during the 2015 campaign, Mizzou shut him down at the end of September. The former three-star recruit finishes his collegiate career having rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries.

Three-star Alabama TE commitment Brendan Scales flipped his commitment to Missouri on Tuesday.

Scales had been in the Crimson Tide pocket since last April, but after logging official visits to both Bama and Mizzou in January, he's opted to back off the Alabama pledge. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder out of Wildwood, Missouri, was reportedly offered a grayshirt by the defending champs, which would have delayed his enrollment until January of 2017. He won't be waiting. We don't blame him either. With O.J. Howard in the picture, we're doubtful Scales would have seen much action his first year--hence why the team wanted him to accept the grayshirt to begin with.

Sports Illustrated's Thayer Evans reports that Arizona State DL coach Jackie Shipp will take the same position at Missouri.

Another one bites the dust. Since August, the Sun Devils have lost five of their assistants, including RB coach Bo Graham, OC Mike Norvell, DB coach Chris Ball and TE coach Chip Long. And now Shipp, who had been coaching up the defensive line for the last three seasons. He'll be replacing Mizzou DL coach Craig Kuligowski, who himself left the school to join Mark Richt at Miami. Expect ASU to name a Shipp replacement in the coming days, though that might not come before National Signing Day on Wednesday.

Alabama graduate WR Chris Black transferred to Missouri.

Having already graduated, Black is eligible to play immediately in 2016. Expected to have an expanded role in 2015 following the departures of Amari Cooper, DeAndrew White and Christion Jones, Black instead caught only two passes for 23 yards while battling a nagging ankle issue and getting surpassed by transfer Richard Mullaney (54-600-4) and true freshman Calvin Ridley (75-893-5). Black was ranked as the No. 8 receiver in the country No. 58 player overall by Rivals back in 2012.

Missouri dismissed redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk.

Mauk's eventual downfall with the Tigers came via a video that broke on Twitter on Monday night which appeared to show the quarterback snorting a line of white powder. The school immediately moved to slap an indefinite suspension on the 6-foot-1, 200-pound gunslinger. In a statement, HC Barry Odom said, "After gathering information and speaking with a number of individuals this week, it is clear Maty has failed to live up to those expectations by violating team rules in recent weeks." Odom indicated that they believe the video to be of the old variety--which backs up what an anonymous teammate said on Tuesday--but that alone was not enough to save Mauk from the axe and he's now been officially dismissed.

Missouri OL Connor McGovern suffered a hamstring injury during one-on-one drills at the Senior Bowl Tuesday and won't play in Saturday's game.

McGovern is bound for Michael Johnson Performance in McKinney, Texas, to rehab and continue his training for the combine. ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks the three-year starter for Mizzou (two at right guard and one at left tackle) as the ninth-best offensive guard in the 2016 NFL draft. CBS projects him as a late Day 3 pick. The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder also hang cleans 400-plus, vertical-jumps 34 inches, has been timed in the 40 at 4.9 and can do 18 pull-ups.

Missouri graduate QB Eddie Printz will transfer.

Printz is that rare grad transfer who retains two years of eligibility, which may make him attractive on the grad transfer free agent circuit. Printz was the No. 32 pro-style quarterback in the country coming out of high school in 2013. He chose the Tigers over offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State and UCLA, among others. Right now, with Maty Mauk suspended, Mizzou has only Marvin Zanders behind starting quarterback Drew Lock on the depth chart among scholarship players.

Missouri redshirt freshman T Michael Fairchild has left the football program to focus on academics.

A member of the 2014 recruiting class, Fairchild took a redshirt his freshman season and subsequently appeared in one game during the 2015 campaign. The 6-foot-5, 295-pound lineman's the son of Fred Fairchild, who played his college ball at Kansas before moving onto the NFL in 1984. The elder Fairchild suited up with the Patriots for seven seasons.

A Missouri teammate of suspended redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk said the video of the quarterback appearing to snort a white line of powder was taken two years ago and Mauk has since cleaned up.

To give some credence to the quote, Mauk’s hair in the video was much longer than it is now. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Mauk’s initial suspension (of three) last September was related to a failed drug test. His teammate, who asked for anonymity, said Mauk has "been really turning things around" since the end of this past season and "has been clean for a while." After the video was released on Twitter on Monday, Mizzou AD Mack Rhoades and HC Barry Odom announced that Mauk was suspended indefinitely.

Missouri suspended redshirt junior QB Maty Mauk indefinitely after the school became aware of an alleged video purporting to show him snorting a substance.

In a joint statement, AD Mack Rhoades and HC Barry Odom said, "We are currently gathering information about the video in question," adding that they take the issue "very seriously" and that until the university's gathered all the facts, Mauk's been suspended indefinitely. This is the third time the 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt junior's been suspended in the last five months. This is a developing story and more information should come to light in the coming days.

Missouri K Andrew Baggett kicked six field goals in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Baggett's 22-yarder in the fourth quarter boosted his National team to the 18-17 win. For those disinclined to do math, he accounted for all 18 points with his six field goals. Said the 6-foot-1, 216-pounder after the game, "This isn't an audition. This isn't [an All-Star game with players] saying, 'Hey look at me. Don't push me. I don't want to get hurt. You're out here getting ready for an NFL camp." In the regular season, he made 16-of-20 kicks.

Three-star QB Micah Wilson de-committed from Boise State and committed to Missouri.

Wilson tweeted out his decision, writing, "I just committed to MIZZOU! All glory to God! I've always wanted to be a Tiger!" followed by several Tiger emojis. While he's not a consensus four or five-star recruit, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound gunslinger posted video game stats during his senior season at Lincoln Christian High School, throwing for 3,730 yards with a...wait for it...56/2 TD/INT ratio. Holy cow. Scout.com describes him as a gunslinger with "easy arm strength" and enough escapability in the legs to keep defenses honest. He also uses a bit of a funky delivery, so it's possible that HC Barry Odom and company tinker with his mechanics when he enrolls.

Former Missouri HC Gary Pinkel will serve as funding ambassador at the university.

Pinkel resigned at the end of the season, but that doesn't mean he's exiting the college landscape completely. He's signed on for the next three years as funding ambassador for the Tigers and will make $950,000 over the course of that contract. He'll be involved with fundraisers and make public appearances. "I’ve said all along that when my coaching days were done, I would still need to be involved in a meaningful way," Pinkel said, "and this does that for me. I’m excited to be in this role where I can still provide an impact for a place that means so much to me and my family."

Missouri suspended freshman DT Terry Beckner indefinitely following Wednesday's arrest for marijuana possession.

Beckner was cited for possession after being pulled over on Wednesday night. In a released statement, HC Barry Odom said, "I’m disappointed to learn of Terry’s actions. We take this very seriously." The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder's in the midst of rehabbing from a torn MCL and ACL suffered in November. Despite the injuries, the former five-star recruit still managed to make the All-Southeastern Conference freshman team.
