Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.
Cannon closed out his Bears career in high style on Tuesday, slicing through Boise State for 14-226-2 in a breezy Cactus Bowl win. The speed merchant caught 87 passes for 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games this season. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder should record a stellar 40-yard dash time in testing come the spring and we don't see him falling out of the first four rounds. Wed, Dec 28, 2016 03:23:00 PM

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon caught 14 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 31-12 bowl in over Boise State.

Cannon is one of the best vertical receiving threats in the country, and that ability was on full display against Boise State. Cannon's first touchdown saw him elevate over a defender for a 30 yard contested catch and followed it up with a 69 yard grab, which allowed him to trot into the endzone. At the very latest, expect Cannon to be a fourth round pick.

Baylor HC Matt Rhule said that junior WR K.D. Cannon guaranteed a victory over Boise State in the Cactus Bowl.

If Boise State actually wanted to open a war of words with the Bears in advance of the Cactus Bowl, they would have a shed's worth of ammunition, but for now, only Cannon is talking the big talk. Baylor finished their regular-season campaign with a 6-6 record, reeling out on a six-game losing streak. For their part, the Broncos wrapped at 10-2. This will be settled on the field come December 27. The Cactus Bowl figures to be a fun one, as Baylor and Boise State both averaged about 35 points this past season.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon caught five passes for 84 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss at West Virginia.

Cannon rolls into bowl season on something of a roll, snagging 33 balls for over 400 yards and five scores across the past four games. Overall, Cannon has 73 catches for 989 yards and 11 touchdowns. The floundering 6-6 Baylor Bears now await their bowl assignment.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon caught 12 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's loss to Texas Tech.

Cannon opened up the contest's scoring via a 53-yard touchdown grab with several minutes gone by in the first quarter. Touchdown No. 2 wouldn't come until 14:42 remained in the game. That nine-yard score would draw Baylor to within 51-35 and made a comeback look reasonably possible for the Bears, but they wouldn't score again in the contest. Cannon is up to 68 catches for 905 yards and 10 touchdowns through 10 games played. Baylor will wrap up their regular-season against West Virginia next weekend.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon caught three passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 49-7 win over Kansas.

Kansas punter Cole Moos had an 82-yard punt in the first quarter. Outside of that, the game, and all of its highlights, belonged to the Bears. It was nice to see Cannon back out there doing his thing. He injured his groin in a late September practice and missed Baylor's last game, the October 1 win over Iowa State. The Bears had a bye last week, allowing their star receiver a chance to fully heal.

Baylor interim HC Jim Grobe expects junior WR K.D. Cannon (groin) to be able to play against Kansas on Saturday.

Baylor was off on bye this past weekend, allowing Cannon a chance to rest up. He initially injured his groin in a late September practice and subsequently sat out the Bears' October 1 win over Iowa State. Prior to suffering the injury, the stalwart wideout had logged a 27-370-4 receiving line. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status during the practice week, but unless he suffers a setback, Cannon should be considered a strong starting option for Week 7's slate of games.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon did not travel with the team for Saturday's game against Iowa State.

Cannon is dealing with a groin injury and was held out of practice this week after aggravating it last weekend against Oklahoma State. On the season, Cannon has 27 catches for 370 yards and four touchdowns. He is the team's leading receiver, almost doubling the next pass catcher on the team.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon (groin) wasn't able to practice Tuesday.

Cannon suffered the injury in practice last week and aggravated it against Oklahoma State over the weekend. Luckily for Baylor, surgery has been ruled out. Of further luck, Iowa State is on deck. Cannon is considered day-to-day.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon exited Saturday's victory over Oklahoma State in the third quarter with a groin injury.

Per Baylor coach Jim Grobe, Cannon suffered the injury in practice during the week and then aggravated it against the Cowboys. He was in street clothes and seen limping at the end of the game. We'll update you on his status when more is known.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon was a destroyer of worlds in Friday's 38-10 win over Rice, catching nine passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns.

As was the case last week against SMU, Baylor's offense was slow to rev up on Friday. Once it got going, though, K.D. Cannon put on a show. He hauled in a seven-yard touchdown in the right corner of the end zone with 7:27 remaining in the first half and would later polish off his immaculate evening with a 28-yard touchdown catch with a little over five minutes gone in the fourth quarter. The stud wideout has been a fantasy gem with his 24 catches for 352 yards and four touchdowns through three games played.
Fri, Sep 16, 2016 11:30:00 PM

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon had 10 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown in a 40-13 victory over SMU on Saturday.

While Baylor's offense sputtered to a surprising degree today, they still gained over 500 yards, so we won't nitpick too much. The 10 catches were a single-game career-high for Cannon. Next up, the 2-0 Bears play their second Friday night game of the young year. It's their first road trip, another cushy matchup against Rice.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon returned to practice on Monday for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Cannon is the team's top receiver and should convert a lot of big play with Seth Russell returning. We would use Cannon's 2015 stat line of 50 catches for 868 yards (17.4 yards per catch) and six touchdowns as a baseline for what to expect this year. Obviously there is plenty of uncertainty around Baylor, but the three players who viewers can count on are Russell, Cannon and running back Shock Linwood.

Baylor interim HC Jim Grobe said that junior WR K.D. Cannon was "fine" after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Grobe indicated that the Bears would work Cannon back into the flow of practice when he feels comfortable and ready. He underwent the initial surgery in mid-July. While there is no timetable for his return, the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder should be in game-shape (or close) come Baylor's September 2 opening kickoff against Northwestern State (welcome back, cupcake Baylor non-conference schedule -- we missed you) barring a setback in camp. Last season, Cannon caught 50 passes for 868 yards (17.4 yards per catch) and six touchdowns. Those numbers could take a quantum leap this season.

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon underwent successful arthroscopic right knee surgery on Tuesday and will be ready for the start of August practices.

This from Heath Nielsen, Baylor associate athletic director for communications. "Surgery went well," Cannon tweeted Tuesday afternoon. Across his first two seasons on campus, Cannon has accrued 108 catches for 1,898 yards and earned all-Big 12 recognition both years. With Corey Coleman in the NFL and a series of would-be Bears scattered across the nation following a scandal-precipitated exodus, Cannon should be among the nation's leaders in targets so long as he stays healthy.
