ESPN's Heather Dinich examines what goes into college football scheduling and whether or not the collegiate game needs uniform scheduling.


- Bud Elliott used a few draft prospects in this year's draft class that showed how difficult it can be to project recruits' positions when they are still in high school.


- Ike Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew selected Jameis Winston as one of their three NFL players who will become stars in the league next season.

- In his first three-round mock for the upcoming NFL Draft, Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus has Jalen Ramsey going first overall to the Tennessee Titans.

Back in Mock Draft 4.0, Ramsey grabbed the top spot and he remains the pick for the Titans. He's an excellent all-around player, capable of playing underneath zone coverage while providing the best run support in the draft of any cornerback. The upside is what separates Ramsey. He has the size and athleticism to develop into a top man-coverage corner, but he's not there yet, and at worst, he's a versatile zone/man corner that's also capable of playing free safety. Ramsey gives the Titans a lot of options on defense.
