Bowling Green LB Gabe Martin "has the play speed and motor for the NFL," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Martin can be eaten up by blockers and his size will make it tough for him to match power-with-power, but there is no doubt he has the play speed and motor for the NFL," Brugler wrote. The Bowling Green prospect had a perfect opportunity to impress evaluators at his pro day, as he posted a 4.61 forty with a 1.59 10 yard split to go along with a 35.5" vertical and 10'1" broad jump. The 6-foot-2, 236-pound Martin earned himself an official visit with the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month.

He recorded a 4.61 forty with a 1.59 10 yard split to go along with a 35.5" vertical and 10'1" broad jump. He could be a third day selection or undrafted free agent.

Bowling Green redshirt junior QB Matt Johnson will miss the remainder of the 2014 season due to a hip injury.

In the first game of the season, Johnson completed 25 of 36 attempts for 313 yards and a touchdown in the school's 59-31 loss to Western Kentucky. Johnson was set to run Dino Babers' high octane offense this season, but now redshirt sophomore James Knapke will start against VMI.

Bowling Green suspended sophomore RB Williams Houston for two seasons.

Houston was charged with attempted rape in July and indicted in August in Wood County Common Pleas Court. A university investigation found Houston responsible for "sexual contact without permission." The female victim called police in July when a man "tried to force himself on her." The 19-year-old was arrested in an on-campus residence hall. Houston led the team with 11 rushing touchdowns and rushed for 211 yards as a true freshman last season. It's likely his football career is over.

Former Baylor WR Robbie Rhodes has officially transferred to Bowling Green.

Rhodes was dismissed from Baylor after his true freshman season for undisclosed reasons. He will almost certainly have to redshirt the season, but look out for Rhodes to be a major part of Dino Babers' offensive arsenal in 2015.

Bowling Green redshirt junior WR Chris Gallon re-tore the ACL in his left knee during summer activities.

Gallon missed a large portion of last season after first tearing the ligament in his knee. He created a good amount of buzz last offseason, but Gallon will have to prove himself again on the field if he stands a chance of being drafted. "...I’m not going anywhere. And next year I’ll be ready — and 100 percent," Gallon said.

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.
