TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon could be a third or fourth receiver at the next level if he proves his health this fall.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound receiver missed a large portion of last season following a season-ending knee injury sustained in October. Pauline grades him as a fourth-round prospect. "The big, smooth possession receiver was knocked out midway through the middle part of 2013 with a knee injury," Pauline wrote. "That’s not good news as Gallon displayed average speed before the knee issue but has the size and skill to get consideration as the third/fourth man on the depth chart if he gets his game back on track."

Bowling Green sophomore RB Williams Houston has been charged with attempted rape.

From the Toledo Blade: "The victim told police she had been at the Manville address for a party and fell asleep. She awoke when a man 'tried to force himself on her,' according to a police report. The victim told police she did not know the man, and she fled after she woke up. The victim returned to the Manville address where she met and talked to police. People at the home identified the suspect as Mr. Houston, a sophomore running back on the football team." The 19-year-old remains in custody, and a school spokesperson said: "[W]e are waiting for more details. We’re anticipating more details to come out of it in the next few days. It’s pretty early in the process."

Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon has the "size/athleticism mix that will attract the eyes of evaluators if he can stay healthy and productive," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler

Gallon has been dynamite on the field since his freshman campaign, but he'll have to prove his health this fall following a season-ending knee injury sustained last October. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound receiver was recently graded by draft insider Tony Pauline as a preseason fourth-round prospect.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler pegs Bowling Green redshirt senior ILB D.J. Lynch as "a possible late round prospect."

Lynch led the Falcons, a top-10 defensive unit, in total tackles (85) and tackles for loss (6.0) in 2013. "He is known as a fierce, competitive player between the hashes, seeking the highlight reel hit, but he also needs to keep his emotions under control, playing with both smarts and aggressiveness," Brugler wrote. "Lynch reads the quarterback well, but needs to show better overall awareness in all directions to feel the chess pieces around him. At a hair under 5-foot-11, Lynch doesn't have ideal height and length for the NFL, but players like London Fletcher and Chris Borland have shown that it isn't a requirement for the next level."

Draft Insider Tony Pauline views Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon as a fourth-round prospect prior to the 2014 season.

That is one round worse than Pauline's projection for Gallon prior to last season, pegging him with a third-round grade. The tall (6'4/220 lbs) receiver missed a large portion of last season following a knee injury that was sustained in October.

Bowling Green S Jerry "BooBoo" Gates ran forties of 4.55 and 4.56 seconds at the Falcons' pro day.

The first-team All-MAC safety in both 2012 and 2013 had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-3 broad jump, a 4.16 second short shuttle, a 7.05 second three-cone, and he collected 27 reps on the bench press. Gates (5-foot-11, 203 pounds) is a good kick returner, in addition to his secondary work. NFL.com's Gil Brandt thinks he's a potential late-round selection.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight ends coach Jon Embree was on hand to scout Bowling Green TE Alex Bayer at the school's pro day.

Bayer ran 4.77 and 4.78 second forties, posted a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-3 broad jump, ran a 4.42 second 20-yard short shuttle, did the three-cone drill in 7.26 seconds, and hefted 20 reps on the bench press. Bayer, who caught 37 passes for 593 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, has a personal visit with the Bucs lined up for Thursday.

Bowling Green senior TE Alex Bayer accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Bayer has hauled in 34 receptions for 536 yards and three touchdowns this season. The Falcon standout was named an all-MAC third team selection for the second consecutive year earlier this month. Bayer (6-foot-4, 253 pounds) provided matchup problems in the MAC, but in the coming months he'll be forced to answer if he's athletic enough to compete at the next level.

Eastern Illinois' Dino Babers has been hired as Bowling Green's next head coach.

Babers moves on at the same time as his quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The head coach has a long history on the offensive side of the ball and incorporated spread and pro style concepts, even allowing his quarterback to run the offense at the line of scrimmage this season. Babers only spent two seasons at Eastern Illinois, but was previously the special teams and wide receiver coach at Baylor.

Bowling Green redshirt sophomore WR Chris Gallon will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

Gallon sustained the injury on October 12 against Mississippi State, catching 24 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns. The redshirt sophomore created some buzz this offseason since he was draft-eligible, but those plans will be delayed until next season.

Bowling Green announced freshman RB Williams Houston is eligible to play this season.

Houston transferred from Ohio State and sports massive size for the position, standing at 6'0/262 pounds. "There is certainly a role he can play in our offense," head coach Dave Clawson said. "He’s still got to get work and he’s still got to get himself in shape. But in small spurts, he has been pretty effective." Houston was a preferred walk-on at Ohio State and is under the same label at Bowling Green.

Draft insider Tony Pauline has given Bowling Green redshirt sophomore WR Chris Gallon a third-round preseason tag.

"Large, dependable receiver with a solid game," Pauline writes of Gallon. "Lacks the speed to stretch the field but does the little things well and the "go-to" receiver opponents cannot stop. Will be the wide-out that breaks the mold of ultra-productive BGSU wide outs who fail in the NFL." Khalil Mack will draw MAC headlines, but be on the lookout for Gallon.

Draft insider Tony Pauline believes Bowling Green redshirt sophomore WR Chris Gallon is a "big time talent."

Pauline notes that "speed may be the issue," but Gallon is big and fluid. Listed at 6'4/221 pounds, Gallon could remind some of Michael Jenkins. He would be wise to work on his downfield blocking and could be forced to consistently win at the catch point if separation is an issue.

Texans selected Bowling Green DT Chris Jones with the No. 198 overall pick.

Jones (6-foot-1 5/8, 302) was the 2012 MAC Defensive Player of the Year, finishing his senior season third in the nation in sacks (12.5) and seventh in tackles for loss (19.0). He forced six career fumbles. Built like a bowling ball with a stocky frame and short arms (32 3/4"), Jones wins with leverage and a relentless play style. He's a bit of a misfit for Houston's 3-4 on paper, but could help in sub-packages. The Texans love to play dime under Wade Phillips, and shoot gaps with multiple interior pass rushers.

Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench considers Bowling Green senior DT Chris Jones an "interesting sleeper."

Muench concedes that Jones "doesn't have great size but tough quick and aggressive" and the senior "has a great motor." The Falcon was highly productive in his final season and projects as a nickel interior pass rusher, like Karl Klug.
