Non-BCS links: Wrapping up the draft and spring

Posted by ESPN.com's Graham Watson
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.
