TE David Njoku can be used as a matchup player in Hue Jackson's offense. He has the size to create leverage versus safeties plus the open field ability (and speed) to produce after the catch. Middle of the field throws and red zone targets.

I thought the Browns should've taken TE David Njoku instead of Michigan S Jabrill Peppers earlier in the first round, but they get both players by trading back into the first round to select Njoku. He is loaded with potential and has a chance to be a big-play threat up the seam. Now Cleveland needs to find QB to throw Njoku the ball.

If I was Cleveland, I would've taken TE David Njoku instead of S Jabrill Peppers. They need to accumulate more weapons for when the finally do draft a quarterback, and Njoku has a ton of upside. I'm not as high on Peppers as others. I think it will take time to get first-round value out of him as a defender.

Which is the best Miami Hurricanes team of all time?

Miami's football program hopes to return to the Hurricanes' glory days, when they won five national titles. Which are Miami's best teams? One might be the best college football team ever.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Mark Richt insists he's not overhauling his offense, but he'd love to have a more mobile QB. "We want a guy that can move well. It helps if the guy has a little bit of an ability to move. We're not going to a QB run game. That's not the case at all. But we want the ability o make sure whoever is back there can move well. That's part of the criteria of what we're looking for." Richt also said he will not explore grad transfers, despite the news Tuesday that Jack Allison was leaving the program.

Miami QB race won't have any clarity until summer

The Hurricanes enter coach Mark Richt's second season with high expectations despite uncertainty about who will replace departed QB Brad Kaaya.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami won't have its quarterbacks go live in the final scrimmage Saturday, deciding one live scrimmage this spring was enough. Coach Mark Richt explained why he had his QBs get hit last week: "Say a guy has been in the system two or three years, never been hit in the scrimmage, hasn't played college football game ever. Now he may be Joe Stud when he knows no one is going to hit him, you go in a game and he gets hit in the mouth and he spits the bit, he turns to crud on you. You don't want to wait until the first game of the year to find that out about a kid. The other thing is when you go live, guess what? The quarterback might break a tackle and make a play. He might zone read, pull the ball and run."

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami goes into its final practice Saturday with its quarterback competition still open. Malik Rosier and Evan Shirreffs are co-No. 1s, with Jack Allison, Vincent Testaverde and Cade Weldon in the next tier. But there won't be any decisions made based on this weekend. Coach Mark Richt wants to wait to see how quickly true freshman N'Kosi Perry picks up the offense once he arrives in late May. "Can he learn enough to function and play winning football for us? I don't know. We'll find out," Richt said

First 2018 class rankings: Miami

The Hurricanes are off and running in the 2018 cycle and looking for their first top-five class since ranking No. 1 in 2008.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Mark Richt has parlayed the growing momentum and excitement around the Miami program into the No. 1 class in the first ESPN recruiting rankings for 2018 ... at least for now. Richt points out several years ago, Miami also had a top-rated class in the spring, only to lose commitments and finish toward the bottom of the Top 25. Still, there is no denying how much he has changed the recruiting dynamic in South Florida, with a nation-high 11 ESPN 300 commitments. "If we hang onto the kids we've got right now, it's a hell of a class so far. It's exciting," Richt said.
