CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Appalachian State WR Tacoi Sumler has "marginal size and durability, but his speed and ability to create after the catch are qualities that could earn him a roster spot."

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound wideout was a former four-star recruit under Chip Kelly at Oregon. Sumler transferred to Appalachian State to be closer to home back in 2012. The Appalachian State prospect once ran a 4.24 40-yard dash at Nike SPARQ camp, when he was in high school. While Sumler has dealt with knee issues over his time as a Moutaineer, he still has that deep speed and straight-line quickness that evaluators may take a chance on.

App State starting sophomore RB Marcus Cox will miss two games due to a torn meniscus.

We are surprised it is only two games. Cox posted a whopping 1250 rushing yards and 21 total touchdowns (15 rushing) as a true freshman in 2013. App State opens the season against Michigan, so their attempt to replicate one of the biggest upsets in college football history will now be even more difficult. The Mountaineers moved up to the FBS-level this season.

Jaguars selected Appalachian State CB Demetrius McCray with the No. 210 overall pick.

McCray (6-foot-1, 187) paced the Southern Conference in interceptions as both a junior (5) and senior (4), earning second-team All-American honors in the FCS last season. He possesses long arms (33 7/8") and ran 4.54 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical. With ballhawking ability and plus length and athleticism, McCray offers starting potential down the road. The Jags have now taken two safeties and two corners in this draft.

Appalachian State senior CB Demetrius McCray will attend the NFL Combine.

McCray was a two year starter at right cornerback and broke up 16 passes in his career, including 10 interceptions. Athleticism plays a part in FCS level players being selected, since teams believe athletic upside is one trait they can work with. McCray can show his off in Indianapolis.

Former Oregon redshirt freshman WR Tacoi Sumler has decided to transfer to Appalachian State.

Sumler notified Oregon of his decision to transfer in early August, but his new home was just announced today. The speedy wideout will reportedly start practicing with the Mountaineers on Wednesday and will not have to sit out the 2012 season because he is transferring down a level.
