Date:

Former Louisville redshirt senior WR Ja'Quay Savage transferred to Cincinnati as a graduate.

A four-star recruit for the 2013 cycle, Savage has now transferred out twice. He initially signed with Texas A&M, only to jump over to Louisville before the start of the 2014 season. After sitting out the campaign, he posted a 12-135-1 receiving line in 2015. He did not record any statistical production during the past campaign. As a graduate, he will be eligible to play immediately this year. He will try to carve out a rotation role now that he is with the Bearcats, though the late date of his transfer will force him to make some ground in his new camp digs.

Cincinnati senior DE Lyndon Johnson has 14% body fat.

We were unable to find the body-fat percentage for former President Lyndon Johnson, but we're guessing his namesake has him beat on the athletic front by a fair margin. Johnson (the football player) has a silly 86-inch wingspan, can bench 415 pounds, has notched a 32-inch vertical jump and has recorded 10 reps of 1,000 pounds in the leg press.

Cincinnati junior CB Alex Thomas was arrested on aggravated robbery charges and has been suspended indefinitely.

Depending on how this plays out, Thomas might not see the field for the Bearcats for some time. The expected started played in 21 games over the last two seasons, including four interceptions last year.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline notes that Cincinnati senior CB Linden Stephens "offers nice size and effective ball skills facing the action."

Unfortunately, per Pauline, Stephens struggles to locate with his back to the ball. Stephens (6'0/187) led the team in passes broken up and ranked second in passes defended last year. He had 36 total tackles and two interceptions.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Cincinnati sophomore QB Hayden Moore "has next-level potential."

"He’s a nifty signal caller with an accurate arm but is a prospect who must take his game to the next level," Pauline wrote. "I presently grade Moore as a free-agent prospect." The 6-foot-3, 203-pound Moore was wildly inconsistent last season, throwing for 1,744 yards (57.3% completions) with an 11/7 TD/INT ratio. To be fair, the entire Bearcats program took the 2016 campaign off.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline grades Cincinnati senior WR Devin Gray as a sixth-round value and notes that Gray is "well thought of in the scouting community."

"Gray is a solid athlete who plays fast and catches the ball well," Pauline wrote. "Though he does not stand out in any aspect of the position, Gray is reliable and could catch on as a fourth receiver in the NFL." Gray posted a 58-860-5 line last year after transferring over from a JUCO.

Former Louisville redshirt senior WR Ja'Quay Savage will transfer as a graduate.

Savage began his career at Texas A&M before transferring to Louisville prior to the 2014 season. The 6-foot-3, 213-pounder was a four-star 2013 recruit. Savage caught only 12 passes for the Cardinals. As a grad, he's eligible to play immediately wherever he winds up.

Cincinnati senior RB Mike Boone (foot) was fully healthy this spring.

One of our top RB fantasy breakout candidates last summer -- he exited 2015 as the Bearcats’ career leader with 6.8 yards per carry -- a toe injury conspired to end Boone's disappointing 2016 campaign after nine games (388 yards and 3.7 yards per carry). The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder, an explosive athlete and gifted receiver, is a breakout candidate once again in 2017.

Seahawks selected Cincinnati S Michael Tyson with the No. 187 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Tyson (6'1/204) was a one-year starter at Cincinnati, leading the team with five interceptions while making 46 tackles, 4.5 TFLs and breaking up five passes this past season. A strong tackler with good instincts, he posted a 4.56 forty, 17 bench press reps, and a 33-inch vertical at the Combine. Tyson will push for a role on special teams before getting snaps on defense. The Ravens may move him to cornerback.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson passes along that Cincinnati LB Eric Wilson has private workouts scheduled with eight teams.

The eight teams in question here are the Texans, Patriots, Packers, Colts, Lions, Buccaneers, Jets and Vikings. Phew. Wilson performed well on pro day after failing to receive a Combine invitation, notching such athletic marks as a 4.48s 40-yard dash and a 39.5-inch vertical jump. It was reported in late March that he had official visits on the docket set with the Packers and Colts. Expect either a Day 3 selection or undrafted free agency to be the end draft result for the Bearcats 'backer.
Apr 7 - 5:11 PM

The Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts have scheduled official visits for Cincinnati LB Eric Wilson.

This per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline. The Colts had already previously met with Wilson following his pro day workout. During that pro day showing, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder made up for a lack of a Combine invitation via a 4.48-second 40-yard dash, a 39.5-inch vertical jump and 25 reps on the bench press. In addition to his official visits to the Packers and Colts, Wilson also is scheduled to be put through a private workout by the Patriots. These are all teams to monitor as potential late Day 3 landing spots for the Cincinnati linebacker.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Cincinnati QB Gunner Kiel "looked physically fit but was erratic with his passing" on pro day.

"He had several nice throws but also missed on a number of passes, and some people felt he was throwing the ball too hard for no reason," Pauline writes. All of this sounds about right for Gunner Kiel, who had moments in the sun with Cincinnati but fell out of favor with the coaching staff this past season. During East-West Shrine Game practices, Pauline argued that Kiel did not look like a real NFL prospect, noting that the Cincinnati gunslinger "was inconsistent-to-poor all three days [of practice]." While NFL teams occasionally reach for arm talent, we would agree with Pauline's assertion that undrafted free agency is the most likely outcome for the star-crossed quarterback.
Mar 23 - 5:54 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline called Cincinnati TE D.J. Dowdy "a bit of an enigma."

"Entering the season graded as a potential middle-round choice, Dowdy caught four passes this season which brought his career total at UC up to 19," Pauline writes. "He offers terrific physical skills but has never translated them into football production." The 6-foot-3, 248-pounder took part in the Cincy pro day this week and clocked a 40-yard dash in the 4.7's, per Pauline. The analyst passes along that Dowdy "looked good in position drills and made several nice deep catches."
Mar 23 - 5:29 PM

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein writes that Cincinnati S Michael Tyson's "inconsistencies in deep coverage could cause teams to shy away from using him anywhere but near the line of scrimmage."

On the more positive side of the ledger, Zierlein notes that Tyson "[p]lays with pretty good football instincts and is competitive challenging the run." This past season, the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder registered 46 tackles (4.5 for loss), five interceptions and five passes defended. At the NFL Scouting Combine -- he was the only Cincinnati player to receive an invite -- Tyson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds, hoisted the bar 17 times on the bench press and logged leaps of 33 inches (vertical) and 118 inches (broad).

Cincinnati LB Eric Wilson met with the Jaguars, Jets and Colts after his pro day workout.

Wilson did not receive an invitation to the Combine, but put up respectable enough numbers on pro day, including a 40-yard dash that was clocked at as fast as 4.48 seconds (per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline), a 39.5-inch vertical and 25 reps on the bench. The 6-foot-1, 230-pounder is scheduled to have a private workout with the Patriots in the near future as he tries to gain traction toward Day 3. Pauline currently stamps him as a likely undrafted free agent.
