I'm having trouble finding out how the ball is placed on catches like this.
Lets say that a WR is running towards the sideline on an out route. The ball is thrown, and the WR makes a diving catch on the ball. He has possession of the ball out of bounds, but he drags his feet in bounds. If he dragged his feet in the endzone, it would be a touchdown, but lets say that the ball lands out of bounds at the 30, and his feet are at the 32 when he falls down. The ball is placed at the 32, right? But lets say he is on a hitch route, and he dives towards the QB to make the catch, in bounds. In this case, the ball would be placed at the 30, where it lands (as if it were a run play), correct?
Bonus: on a run, it is only a TD if the ball crosses the goal line, right? So if a RB runs towards the pylon, and gets a foot in the endzone while the ball is out of bounds, is it a touchdown?
I've been watching football for a long time, but these rules still confuse me sometimes. Any help would be appreciated.

The money shot:
After the smoke clears, the only game that is still on the books is the only defeat, a 31-18 loss at Wisconsin in October, dropping the official record from 12-1 to 0-1. With that, the Buckeyes' cumulative record over Jim Tressel's decade-long tenure as head coach falls from 106-22, the best winning percentage of any Division I-A/FBS program in that span except Boise State, to 94-22, which ranks a mere fourth. (In the bigger picture, the sudden absence of a dozen wins also drops OSU from third to fifth in all-time winning percentage, to the benefit of Texas and Oklahoma.) Tressel falls from the ranks of the exclusive 200-win club among D-I head coaches, too, including his days at Youngstown State.
As linked by TomVH's twitter, there are lots of good 1 on 1 drill videos that you can check out featuring many Michigan commits and prospects.
There's a run blocking 1 on 1, pass rush 1 on 1, RB vs LB, and WR vs DB.
The Michigan interest is mainly in the linemen drills, as we had no commits in the WR or RB video, and no targets with the exception of Dwayne Stanford.
In the linemen drills, however, Mario is small but impressive. He blows by Zach Banner at one point, who is about double his size. Aziz Shittu, Danny O'Brien, and Sheldon Day are other DL that were impressive in the drills. Joshua Garnett, Banner, and Erik Magnuson are the main targets on OL.
Just some fun videos to check out of some of the best high school players in the country
