The draft is over and the stories on the various non-BCS picks are rolling in. I've linked a few of them as well as a couple stories from spring practices and games that went on this weekend.
Only one team from my area is still involved in spring practice -- San Diego State. Most of my teams have moved ahead into the offseason and some much deserved down time (some deserve it more than others). Me? I never stop. College football has no offseason here.
• San Francisco Chronicle writer Bruce Jenkins blogs about whether quarterback Nate Davis is going to be a good prospect for the 49ers.
• David Climer of the Nashville Tennessean had a nice column about the lack of BCS bias in the NFL draft.
• Chadd Cripe of the Idaho Statesman writes that no Broncos were drafted for the first time in four years, but several ended up with free-agent contracts.
• Casper Star-Tribune reporter Austin Ward, who reports on all things Wyoming, had a couple of nice stories this weekend, including one on the receivers and the strides Wyoming has made during camp this spring.
• The offense took control of the Fresno State spring game, but the defense should catch up by the fall.
• Gary Fauber of the Register-Herald writes that Marshall might end up starting a true freshman quarterback.
• The Bowling Green offense struggled in its spring game under first-year head coach Dave Clawson.
• The San Diego State defense, which is learning a new system this spring, had 20 tackles for loss during an intrasquad scrimmage this weekend.
