Miami offensive tackle Sunny Odogwu is leaving the program, leaving the Hurricanes without one of their more experienced linemen for 2017. Odogwu started 14 games over three seasons, but missed most of last year with a leg injury and was limited during spring practice. He told coach Mark Richt he feels he will have a better opportunity at playing time at another school. Odogwu has already graduated, so he will have a chance to play right away at his next destination.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."

Get ready for the Year of the Defense in the ACC

While strong QB play got the ACC's headlines in 2016, the defenses, which feature some of the league's top stars, may generate a national buzz in '17.

QB Brad Kaaya said he didn't know what round he would go in and that he has nothing promised. Said Lions TE coach Al Golden was the first coach to offer him a scholarship when he was at Miami. Owes him a lot.

Here's the 49ers total haul from the 2017 NFL draft: 1A. Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford; 1B. Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama; 3A. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado; 3B. C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa; 4. Joe Williams, RB, Utah; 5A. George Kittle, TE, Iowa; 5B. Trent Taylor, WR, Louisiana Tech; 6A. D.J. Jones, DT, Mississippi; 6B. Pita Taumoepenu, DE, Utah; 7. Adrian Colbert, DB, Miami. The Niners also traded for Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

With their final pick in this year's draft, No. 229 overall, the San Francisco 49ers selected DB Adrian Colbert of Miami. Colbert brings some versatility to play safety and corner as well as contribute on special teams. There could be an opportunity to make the team, given the Niners' needs in the secondary. That's especially true if he can play free safety.

QB Brad Kaaya's inconsistent tape and lack of mobility pushed him down the board to the Lions in the sixth round. Kaaya has shown that can produce in a pro style system at Miami, but he needs a clean pocket and he will struggle vs. pressure. I thought Kaaya played really good football this past season vs. Pitt when looking at his accuracy, anticipation and the ability to work through his reads. But the majority of his tape is up and down. Needs time to develop with pro coaching in Detroit.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

The Lions drafted a QB for the second straight year, taking Brad Kaaya from Miami. Kaaya was a three-year starter at Miami and will compete with Jake Rudock for the No. 2 QB spot behind Matthew Stafford. Should be a tough competition in camp.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints' final pick of this year's draft (assuming they don't trade back in) is DE Al-Quadin Muhammad – a highly-recruited high school standout who wound up being dismissed from Miami (Fla.) for off-field issues. He was suspended for the 2014 season after allegedly punching another student. Then he was dismissed two years later as the NCAA investigated him for receiving illicit benefits from a luxury-car rental company. He had seven sacks in the two years he played, and Scouts Inc. called the 6-3, 253-pounder a "boom or bust" prospect.

Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer 

Danny Isidora is the second lineman the Vikings have drafted, and while their efforts to rebuild the group have so far amounted to a third- and fifth-round pick, they've got another player they can try to develop in the middle of the line. Isidora is a strong, agile lineman who might need to work on his balance in the NFL to stand up to defensive tackles.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The full name of Panthers fifth-round pick Corn Elder, a cornerback out of Miami, is Cornelius Marquis Elder. "But everybody calls me Corn.""

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers draft pick, CB Corn Elder, can play inside over the slot and he should be an immediate contributor on special teams coverage units. Elder is very aggressive in run support and he has the footwork to break on the ball. Tough, competitive player.
