NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly believes Clemson WR Mike Williams will a better pro than the Houston Texans' DeAndre Hopkins.

"Watching the two of them coming out of college, off tape, to me, Williams has better separation, the ability to beat a defender one-on-one when he has to, inside and outside on cuts," Casserly said. Obviously this is quite a statement, as Hopkins has averaged more than 1,100 yards per year over four NFL seasons. Williams (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) clocked 40-yard dashes of 4.58 and 4.56 seconds at the Tigers' pro day on Thursday. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock called Williams "a first-round pick all day long," at the workout. There was one issue, though. "A little disappointing to me was his 10 (yard split) time, only 1.65. Laquon Treadwell of the Minnesota Vikings had the same time, that's scary," Casserly said. "He hasn't done shuttle drills. Why not? Maybe he doesn't think he does them well, and his change of direction may not be quite what we think it is. (I) love him on tape, though."

Mississippi State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 QB Jalen Mayden.

Mayden sided with the Bulldogs over Baylor, Louisville, Nebraska and Tennessee. He is intrigued by the prospect of working with Mississippi State HC Dan Mullen, saying, "I liked to see the progression that [his quarterbacks] had from their freshman year to their senior year, and I feel like he really knows how to make a good quarterback." And in a note of synchronicity, the 6-foot-2, 196-pounder actually compared his game to that of Dak Prescott last summer. Scout.com ranks Mayden as the No. 100 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle, with outlet analyst Greg Powers noting that he "can pull the ball down and run as his stats suggest, but he is more of pass first quarterback who will make his reads and progressions in the pocket."

Nebraska received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 ATH Mario Goodrich.

While Goodrich does a little bit of everything at Lee's Summit West (Missouri) -- he has worked as a receiver, cornerback and kick returner -- Nebraska views the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder as a corner. Rivals' Nate Clouse notes that Goodrich "has terrific ball reactions which combined with his size and length make him a pass break-up and interception machine." That assessment rings true based on his work as a high school junior in 2016, when he notched seven interceptions while breaking up 12 passes. Goodrich ranks as Rivals' No. 202 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle and gives Nebraska 12 commitments in the class. Sleep on the Cornhuskers' recruiting work at your own peril -- they currently sit at No. 6 in Rivals' team rankings. Only Ohio State (No. 4) and Penn State (No. 2) rank higher in the Big Ten.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah compares UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

"In terms of how he's played the position, and maybe even athletically a little bit, I wrote down Eli Manning," Jeremiah said. Rosen threw for 3,670 passing yards and 23 touchdowns as a freshman in 2015 but regressed in 2016, largely due to a shoulder injury that cut his season in half. "He's got a firm base. You see him climb up in the pocket, and he is smooth and easy. You talk about a natural throwing motion, he's outstanding, and he's aware," Jeremiah said. "I thought he got a little bit greedy at times when he could have taken some (completions) underneath, but he does a nice job of keeping his eyes up under pressure. He needs to do a better job of giving up on a play. He takes some unnecessary sacks because of that."

Texas freshman TE Reese Leitao's felony drug charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.

In February, Leitao was arrested on felony drug possession charges after getting caught on school grounds selling Xanax. Texas HC Tom Herman hasn't yet made a decision on the tight end's status. "We're aware of the recent proceedings regarding Reese Leitao and are gathering facts," Herman said. "After the latest information is thoroughly reviewed by me and our staff and the Athletics Department, we will make a decision regarding Reese's status with our program." Leitao was the nation's No. 19 tight end this past cycle, per the 247Sports Composite.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen is a better NFL prospect than Patrick Mahomes.

"Just based off what I saw last year, I think Allen is more talented than Mahomes. ... I think he's got better feet, quicker feet, he's more natural," Jeremiah said. "He's under center, so ... he's ahead of Mahomes, but they have the same strengths and the same weaknesses." Fellow analyst Bucky Brooks agrees that Allen won't need as much developmental time as Mahomes. Jeremiah likened Allen to a "more athletic" Joe Flacco. "The ball just jumps out of his hand. He does see some ghosts in the pocket; he'll bail out of clean pockets, but he'll make some incredible 'wow' throws on the move much like we saw last year from Mahomes. He's a rare arm talent," Jeremiah said. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom likened Allen's game to Mahomes' in his 2018 mock draft, writing that Allen "isn’t quite the gun-slinging risk-taker that Pat Mahomes is, but Allen wouldn’t be out of place playing craps at Mahomes’ table in Las Vegas."

Florida State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 RB Jashaun Corbin.

While five-star freshman RB Cam Akers is already looking like a bellcow-in-the-making, ESPN's Billy Tucker believes that Corbin will be used in more of a complementary fashion once he joins the Seminoles in 2018. Wrote the analyst, "Blend of size, speed and athleticism will provide FSU with flexibility on how they utilize Corbin throughout the backfield and slot." He refers to the 6-foot, 190-pounder as possessing a "third-down, change of pace skill set" and compares him to former Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara. Corbin is FSU's second commitment at running back in this cycle. The first carries a very, very familiar last name -- that would be five-star RB James Cook, younger brother of Dalvin Cook.

Graduate transfer CB Shaq Wiggins is reportedly visiting Mississippi State after declaring to Tennessee, according to Mike Griffith.

Wiggins declared his commitment to Tennessee in late April, but his connection to Mississippi State defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is evident. Wiggins played for the coach at Georgia and again at Louisville. Wiggins has a good chance to compete for a starting job at Tennessee, but we will see how this plays out.

Former Oregon redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

Tyner announced his medical retirement from the sport in February 2016 following debilitating injuries to both of his shoulders. The former five-star prospect now wants to return to the field, and he hopes to do so for Oregon's archrival. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound Tyner, a speedster who once ran a 4.28-second forty, rushed for 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns across two seasons with the Ducks. He hasn't played since 2014 and must be cleared by the NCAA. But if healthy and eligible, Tyner will make for a strong No. 2 change-of-pace back behind the thundering Ryan "Wrecking" Nall.

Former South Carolina sophomore QB Brandon McIlwain transferred to Cal.

The 6-foot, 190-pound McIlwain threw for 600 yards and a 2/1 TD/INT ratio and ran for another 127 yards last year as a true freshman. When fellow frosh Jake Bentley hopped him on the depth chart, McIlwain's fate was sealed. McIlwain, Scout's No. 12 QB in the 2016 class, plans to play both football and baseball for the Golden Bears. He must sit out next season but should contend for the starting QB job for new coach Justin Wilcox once he's eligible in 2018. McIlwain, a dual-threat, is a better fit for the system Wilcox and OC Beau Baldwin are installing than the Air Raid ("Bear Raid") employed by former HC Sonny Dykes. In short, Baldwin tailors his spread system to the personnel on hand and the matchups they can exploit against the given opponent. The Bear Raid stressed defenses by putting defenders on islands in space, but its rigidity caused it to get stalled by superior talent when the defense was able to lock down skill players one-on-one.

Southern Miss hired former Florida State C Bryan Stork as a grad assistant coaching offensive line.

In 2015, Stork became only the fifth player to win a college football national championship one year (with the Seminoles) and a Super Bowl (with the New England Patriots) the next. Stork ended up winning two ACC championships at Florida State before being snagged by the Pats in Round 4 of the 2014 draft. He retired from the NFL in March citing multiple concussions.

Appalachian State signed head coach Scott Satterfield to a contract extension through the 2021 season.

The 44-year old coach has built a powerhouse in the Sun Belt, going 27-5 over his last 32 games. In 2016, Appalachian State shared the conference championship with Arkansas State. "Scott Satterfield continues to take App State football to new heights," Director of Athletics Doug Gillin said. "In four seasons at App State, he has orchestrated one of the most successful transitions to FBS football and continues to build App State football for long-term sustainable success on a national level." Before being hired by the Mountaineers, Satterfield worked with wide receiver T.Y. Hilton as offensive coordinator at FIU under former HC Mario Cristobal.
