The former Missouri DE, cited Monday for marijuana possession, has been automatically enrolled in the first phase of the NFL's treatment program, sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Mark Dominik. Ray won't face discipline but is subject to random drug testing.

Ending Alabama's recruiting reign

Alabama has signed the top class for four years running, but there's quite a few teams that have the potential to dethrone the Crimson Tide in 2016, including Florida State, who boasts five-stars Malik Henry and Levonta Taylor. See classes (Insider)

Winston's high rate of interceptions

If there's any on-field concerns with taking Jameis Winston, the number that jumps out is his 18 interceptions in 2014, which led all Power-5 conference quarterbacks.

There's actually some head coaching longevity in the SEC. Richt/Pinkel starting 15th season, Miles/Spurrier 11th, Saban 9th, Mullen 7th.
