ESPN's FPI gives just four teams better than a 50 percent chance to win every game on their schedule next season. Ohio State is the most likely team to pull off the feat, but the Buckeyes will face a stiff test against Oklahoma during that quest.

I'm told that USF offensive lineman Kofi Amichia had a private workout this morning with the 49ers. He put up 32 reps on the bench press at his pro day two weeks ago. He started 25 straight games at left tackle for the Bulls, but I'm told they're more interested in him at guard and center.

South Florida's Quinton Flowers might be college football's most underrated quarterback in 2017, and the best thing about him according to coach Charlie Strong is, "The kids don't think they can lose when he's on the field."

Source tells me USF wide receiver Rodney Adams had a private workout with the Panthers today. He also has a visit scheduled with the Vikings in two weeks and has meetings/workouts scheduled with the Jaguars, Patriots and 49ers.

One player who really turned heads today at USF pro day was offensive lineman Kofi Amichia. Weighed in at 304, benched for 32 reps, recorded a 9'6" broad jump, 33.5 vertical and a 4.96 40. Tweaked his hamstring midway through that sprint but should be okay. He's drawn interest from the Packers, Colts, Chiefs, Titans and Seahawks.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley and Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell were at USF pro day today to watch Marlon Mack (pictured) up close and both were putting him through drill work on the field.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Blast from the past! Two former Bucs receivers at USF pro day today -- Keenan McCardell and Reidel Anthony. McCardell is now the receivers coach for the Jaguars and and Anthony coaches at the Performance Compound in Tampa.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

USF wide receiver Rodney Adams has been training with Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston in Orlando. Lot of experience working with a quarterback who improvises and makes plays outside the pocket. Very productive on special teams too.
