Buffalo redshirt sophomore TE Tyler Mabry caught two passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the team's spring game.

Mabry (6'3/255) hauled in a modest nine passes for 95 yards this past season. That was while backing up TE Mason Schreck, who the Bulls lost to graduation after the campaign. He should have plenty of opportunities for targets, not only due to Schreck's exiting stage left, but also the mere fact that the Bulls can use all the help they can get offensively. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Mabry as the No. 29 tight end for college fantasy leagues.

The state of New York has approved an $18 million plan for Buffalo to build an indoor athletic training facility.

Per Buffalo Business First's Dan Miner, construction bids will be issued next week. The Bulls had been the only team in the MAC without an indoor practice facility, something that was problematic for a team which plays in Buffalo, New York, given the weather from late autumn into winter. It is not yet known when construction on the estimated 90,000-foot facility might be completed, but that should become clear as this endeavor gets underway in earnest.

Buffalo junior LB Khalil Hodge "shows next-level ability as a run defender yet is more of a two-down player," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Hodge (6'1/240) logged 123 total tackles and seven TFL last year. After recording a ridiculous 262 tackles his senior season of high school in Stockton, CA, Hodge played for a year at the City College of San Francisco before transferring to Buffalo.

Buffalo junior CB Cameron Lewis "possesses average size but makes a lot of solid plays on the football," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"He could develop into a dime back on Sundays if he continues to improve," Pauline wrote. Lewis (5'9/185) had 60 total tackles, 2.5 TFL and seven breakups last year.

Bengals selected Buffalo TE Mason Schreck with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Schreck (6'4/253) broke out as a senior for a 59/651/4 (11.0 YPR) receiving line to earn second-team All-MAC recognition from the conference's coaches. Schreck tested as a moderate athlete at his Pro Day, running 4.76 with a 9-foot-10 broad jump and 7.36 three-cone time. Schreck is a big underdog to beat out C.J. Uzomah or Tyler Kroft for a roster spot behind Tyler Eifert.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Buffalo's pro day was "a real good day for unheralded tight end Mason Schreck."

Schreck's 40-yard dash time of 4.70 seconds on pro day wasn't exactly a light-the-world-on-fire time like the one that Ole Miss TE Evan Engram registered at the Combine, but it came in faster than scouts expected. A tenth of a second faster than expected, according to Pauline. In addition, he also turned in 18 reps on the bench press, notched a vertical jump of 34.5 inches and registered a mark of 9-foot-8 in the broad jump. This past season, Schreck logged a 59-651-4 receiving line in 12 games played. All three numbers on that line represented career bests for the sleeper prospect.

Buffalo TE Mason Schreck has a visit scheduled with the Lions, according to Tony Pauline.

We still contend that the Lions will be adding another tight end at some point in the draft, and maybe earlier than many think. Schreck was not at the NFL Combine and played 87 percent of Buffalo's snaps last year, his best contest being against Army.

Football Scoop reports that Buffalo will hire Hamline OC Jim Zebrowski to serve as quarterbacks coach.

Zebrowski has extensive experience as a QB coach, having worked that position on staff with Minnesota for five seasons. He also served as QB coach with Northern Illinois in 2011. Hamline hired him as offensive coordinator in April of 2016. Onward to Buffalo.

Buffalo junior RB Jordan Johnson rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries against Miami of Ohio on Saturday.

Buffalo senior CB Boise Ross was named to the Jim Thorpe Award preseason watch list.

Considering that Ross transitioned from wide receiver to corner during his sophomore year, this is an incredible honor. In his first full season at CB last year, Ross set a school record with 20 pass breaks (fifth in the country). He chipped in two interceptions.

Rutgers redshirt sophomore OL Jacquis Webb will transfer to Buffalo.

Hat tip to NJ.com's Dan Duggan for the report. After redshirting in 2014, the former three-star recruit did not see game action in 2015. This spring, the 6-foot-5, 325-pounder practiced with the second-team offensive line. Webb stands as the sixth member of Rutgers' 2014 recruiting class to transfer. He will have to sit out the 2016 campaign due to transfer regulations and will have two years of eligibility remaining come 2017.

The Jaguars have kicked the tires on Buffalo T John Kling as a potential late-round selection.

Doff of the cap to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson for the tip. The first thing that jumps out in regards to Kling is his size. He is an absolute monster at 6-foot-7, 313 pounds. He was named to the All-MAC second team for the 2015 campaign and during Buffalo's Pro Day, notched a 30-inch vertical jump, 8-foot-8 broad jump and 21 reps on the bench press. If the Jaguars or another squad opt to take a chance on him, it likely wouldn't come until the later rounds.

Pro Football Focus says Buffalo TE Matt Weiser's "abilities at the catch point make him valuable towards the end of the draft."

The boys at PFF like Weiser as a TE sleeper because the prospect posted the fourth-highest receiving grade of any TE in the draft class last year. Weiser routinely makes contested catches and you'll need multiple defenders to wrestle him down (16 broken tackles on 78 catches the past two years). There are concerns that limit his upside, however. "Slow, slow, slow. No speed to separate past linebackers. Underneath guy," PFF noted. "Little burst in and out of breaks. Needs to learn to use his leverage."

Buffalo sophomore RB Jonathan Hawkins is not participating in spring practice due to a shoulder injury.

We don't have information as to the severity of Hawkins' shoulder injury, but regardless of its circumstance, the bum wing is enough to keep the 5-foot-10, 210-pounder off the field for the time being. He was a three-star recruit for the 2015 cycle and is expected to be integrated into the offense thoroughly during the coming season.

Pro Football Focus analyst Michael Renner noted that Buffalo TE Matt Weiser "has the body control to make contested catches."

Renner refers to Weiser as a "limited athlete," but found himself impressed by the 6-foot-5, 241-pounder's consistency when it came to actually playing football. In 12 games last season, the Bull standout caught 63 passes for 625 yards (9.9 yards per reception) and a trio of touchdowns. Those numbers sit right up there with most of the tight ends in this draft pool and actually read better than those on the ledgers of some of the more well-heralded names in our lives. In addition to the strong receiving numbers, Weiser also busted free from 10 tackles (tied for the most of any tight end in this draft pool). He could crack the back half of Day 3, but undrafted free agency is probably the most likely outcome here.
