Ty Montgomery
Stanford's Montgomery (Knee) Could Miss Season Opener
Ty Montgomery, WR, STNFRD
7/25/2014
News: Ty Montgomery (knee) could miss Stanford's season opener against UC Davis on Aug. 30, CBS Sports reports.
Analysis: Ty Montgomery, who was injured in Stanford's Rose Bowl defeat last season, missed all of spring ball in wake of surgeries to both his knee and arm. The dynamic playmaker is expected to be limited when training camp opens Aug. 4, but the hope is that he'll be able to participate in contact portions of practice by the end of camp. Until further notice, Montgomery appears questionable to play versus UC Davis, a game Stanford should be able to win without him, and will at least aim to return for Week 2 against conference rival USC. In addition to ranking second in the country in kickoff return yards per game last season, Montgomery was far and away Stanford's best receiver, totaling 61 receptions, 958 yards, and 10 touchdowns during his junior campaign.

Brandon Carter Update
Brandon Carter, WR, TCU
7/21/2014
News: Brandon Carter's career at TCU is likely over because of academic issues, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports.
Analysis: He was arrested in April for possession of marijuana, but coach Gary Patterson said Brandon Carter "will not make it" this season due to poor grades. Patterson said that it would be best for Carter to use his remaining redshirt year to get a new start somewhere else. Carter is considered a mid-round NFL draft prospect, and if he can gain eligibility at a new program, he could still have a future in the college fantasy game, but it won't be with TCU.

News: Justin Scott-Wesley (knee) may not be at full strength at the start of the season, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Justin Scott-Wesley was sidelined for most of 2013 with an ACL injury, and [coach Mark] Richt wasn't as sure about when Scott-Wesley would return to 100 percent... He believes he'll be available early in fall camp, though. "I think he might be available to play Day 1, but I don't know if he'll be playing at a tempo in where we feel like he's ready to do it at the highest level," Richt said. "And there's a lot of competition at that position, as well. I'm not 100 percent sure how long it'll be before he gets in there and can go full speed."

Mitchell has caught 85 career passes for 1,237 yards with four touchdowns and is considered one of the SEC's most talented returning receivers.

7/17/2014
News: Sammie Coates has been named to the Preseason All-SEC squad, USA Today reports.
Analysis: Sammie Coates was a breakout player in 2013, snagging 42 passes for 902 yards and seven touchdowns in Auburn's storybook season. The Tigers won't sneak up on anybody this season, though, so it remains to be seen if Coates will be able to match this production.

News: Amari Cooper has been named to the Preseason All-SEC squad, USA Today reports.
Analysis: This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Amari Cooper had a down sophomore season and loses starting quarterback AJ McCarron to the NFL.

It's unclear if he'll be eligible immediately to play QB, but with an unsettled situation at the position, Bolden could immediately fill in under center.

Demarcus Robinson
Demarcus Robinson Update
Demarcus Robinson, WR, FLA
7/8/2014
News: After performing well in the spring, Demarcus Robinson appears poised for a significant role in the 2014 Florida offense.
Analysis: The Gators have high hopes for their 2014 passing game after adding Kurt Roper (formerly of Duke) to their offensive coordinator position, and any success the team has will likely have a lot to do with Demarcus Robinson. Robinson dealt with academic and disciplinary issues in his first year and a half with the Gators, but but he seems more focused this year. He's one of college football's most talented receivers, possessing elite athleticism at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds.
