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.

Bowling Green senior DT Chris Jones added another 2.5 sacks Saturday against Eastern Michigan, making his total for the season raise to 11.5.

From a statistical perspective, Jones may be the most consistent interior pass rusher in the nation. The senior's motor never stops, and although many of his sacks aren't highlight worthy, Jones continues to chase and fight until the quarterback is on the ground.

Bowling Green running back Willie Geter left the game against Temple with an apparent ankle injury.

There is no word on the severity of  the injury, but losing Geter would be a huge loss as he is a dynamic playmaker as both a runner and receiver.

Bowling Green running back Willie Geter did it all for the Falcons in their loss to Buffalo by leading the team in receiving and rushing.  Geter carried the ball 12 times for 32 yards while adding five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown.

Even when the offense sputters, Geter gets his numbers because of his versatility.

Bowling Green tailback Willie Geter lead the ground game and the receiving game for the Falcons as they faced off against Marshall this weekend.  Geter ran the ball 31 times for 100 yards while also catching five balls for 86 yards.

Geter is a speedy scatback who will continue to flourish in Dave Clawson's offensive system.

Bowling Green tailback Willie Geter is expected to shoulder more of the workload now that Tyler Sheehan and Freddie Barnes have departed. "I would be disappointed if Willie didn't rush for 1,000 yards next season" says head coach Dave Clawson.  

Now that the top quarterback and receiver are gone for the Falcons, it is expected that Geter will indeed get more touches.  Not only is he expected to reach 1,000 yards rushing, but you can expect quite a few catches considering he nabbed 37 balls last year.
