Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson is "dependable but has average size for a possession wide out," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Though lacking in NFL upside, Thompson (6'2/200) is a monster in Toledo's explosive offense. He posted a 64-1,269-11 line last year and will be one of college football's most productive receivers again in 2017.

Nebraska redshirt freshman linebacker Greg Simmons will transfer.

Simmons hasn't offered an explanation as yet, but perhaps he's leaving because he's buried on the depth chart. He redshirted last year after suffering a neck injury in fall camp. The Florida native was a three-star recruit in 2016.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline calls Toledo redshirt junior WR Jon'Vea Johnson "quick, reliable and sneaky fast."

The 6-foot, 183-pounder posted an explosive 40-733-10 line (19.3 ypc) last year as a secondary option in Toledo's offense. If he sees more touches, watch out. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 37 fantasy receiver.

Toledo junior edge rusher Olasunkanmi Adeniyi "terrorizes opposing quarterbacks and consistently blows up plays behind the line of scrimmage," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"He’s explosive off the edge, plays with speed and forces the action from every direction," Pauline wrote. "Adeniyi occasionally stands over tackle and though he loses an edge rushing the passer, he can effectively and play in space off the line of scrimmage." Adeniyi (6'2/250) registered 49 tackles, eight TFL and four sacks last year. "As is the case with any underclassmen size/speed numbers are critical but the ability to consistently disrupt the action will make Adeniyi sought out once he’s available in the draft," Pauline wrote. The analyst grades Adeniyi as the best prospect in the MAC, with a Rds. 2-3 value.

Former Louisville redshirt senior WR Ja'Quay Savage will transfer as a graduate.

Savage began his career at Texas A&M before transferring to Louisville prior to the 2014 season. The 6-foot-3, 213-pounder was a four-star 2013 recruit. Savage caught only 12 passes for the Cardinals. As a grad, he's eligible to play immediately wherever he winds up.

Northern Illinois senior S Mycial Allen "is not great in any aspect but shows a degree of consistency on the field and plays with a special teams mentality," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Allen (5'11/200) ranked third on the team in tackles last year with 61. He added three TFL and two interceptions.

NC State redshirt senior WR Jumichael Ramos (knee) was limited this spring.

The bigger news is that Ramos is expected to be a full-go by fall camp. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wideout redshirted last season after suffering a major knee injury in the summer. Ramos caught 34 passes for 457 yards and three touchdowns back in 2015.

Colorado State junior WR Olabisi Johnson scored the game-winning touchdown in the spring game.

Johnson finished with seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown, producing a bit more than star receiver Michael Gallup, who had four catches for 61 yards and a touchdown. The 6-foot, 190-pound Johnson was plagued by a broken hand last year, but he still finished with a decent 28 receptions for 613 yards. What really opened our eyes was when he went off for a 7-265-2 line in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Idaho.

Buffalo junior LB Khalil Hodge "shows next-level ability as a run defender yet is more of a two-down player," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Hodge (6'1/240) logged 123 total tackles and seven TFL last year. After recording a ridiculous 262 tackles his senior season of high school in Stockton, CA, Hodge played for a year at the City College of San Francisco before transferring to Buffalo.

Charlotte redshirt junior QB Hasaan Klugh completed 12-of-14 passes for 93 yards in the spring game.

The former North Carolina A&T Aggie impressed after dispatching former starter Kevin Olsen last season. Klugh has a strong arm and is a play-maker outside of the pocket, but he's rail-thin and unrefined. Still, he may leave the young program as Charlotte's best-ever quarterback. He threw for 1,356 yards and a 10/3 TD/INT rate on 53.6-percent completions in 2016.
Jun 21 - 2:43 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline projects Eastern Michigan redshirt junior RB Ian Eriksen as an NFL third-down back.

"Eriksen is a small but quick and creative ball carrier who excels as a pass catcher out of the backfield," Pauline wrote. Eriksen (5'10/206) had 771 rushing yards and nine touchdowns and a 21-243-0 line as a receiver out of the backfield last year. Now that Shaq Vann has returned healthy, however, Eriksen may move into a No. 2 role in 2017.

Ohio redshirt senior LB Quentin Poling is "vertically challenged... yet he’s a terrific linebacker with a great head for the game," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"Poling is best defending the run and plays lights out from the snap of the ball," Pauline wrote. "His ability in zone coverage is not all that bad and I like him as a late round prospect to back-up on the inside of a 3-4 as well as line-up on coverage units." Poling (6'0/235) earned first team All-MAC honors last year. Ohio needs him to step up even more now that Tarell Basham is off to the NFL.
Jun 21 - 2:09 PM

Charlotte redshirt senior WR Trent Bostick (head) caught six passes for 65 yards in the spring game.

Bostick redshirted last season due to concussion symptoms. Heading into last year, he was the 49ers' second-leading receiver through program’s first three seasons. Over 32 starts, he's posted career numbers of 1,416 receiving yards, nine receiving touchdowns and 107 receptions. Bostick may be Charlotte's go-to receiver this fall.
Jun 21 - 1:51 PM

Eastern Michigan redshirt junior LB Kyle Rachwal "is slightly undersized but could be a nickel specialist in coverage and special team’s demon," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Rachwal (6′3/234) was named to the Athlon Sports preseason All-Mac fourth team recently. He had 109 total tackles last year.
Jun 21 - 1:36 PM

Boston College and Michigan State announced a future home-and-home series.

The Eagles will host the Spartans in Chestnut Hill on Sept. 21, 2024 at Alumni Stadium. Boston College will return the favor at East Lansing’s Spartan Stadium on Sept. 20, 2025. "Philosophically we want to play a strong schedule and adding a future opponent the caliber of Michigan State fits what we want to accomplish," said BC athletic director Martin Jarmond in a statement.
