Cincinnati TE Blake Annen worked out for Eagles assistant TE coach Justin Peelle, according to Aaron Wilson.

Annen is a ridiculous athlete, running a 4.41 at the school's pro day, also posting 25 bench press reps, a 34 inch vertical and 10 foot broad jump. those numbers alone could get the 6'5/250 lbs tight end drafted.

Cincinnati junior WR Shaq Washington received an addition year of eligibility from the NCAA in the form of a hardship waiver.

Washington is a big part of Cincy's offense and snatched 78 catches for 784 yards and a touchdown in 2013. The wide out missed most of the 2011 campaign with an injury. He'll be considered a junior in 2014 with two seasons of eligibility remaining. The diminutive Washington will have to put up huge numbers over the next few years to garner NFL attention.

Cincinnati senior QB Munchie Legaux (knee) has received an extra year of eligibility from the NCAA.

Legaux, who was forced to the sideline due to a horrific knee injury for most of last season, will have one season of eligibility remaining. The Bearcat signal-caller is still rehabbing and hopes to be ready for fall practices. He's thrown for 2,847 yards and 20 touchdowns in 31 games at Cincinnati. Legaux will have to fight off Notre Dame transfer Gunner Kiel and junior college transfer Jarred Evans for the starting gig.
Feb 13 - 4:05 PM

Cincinnati announced that senior QB Munchie Legaux will miss the remainder of the season because of a serious left knee injury.

Legaux's season ended on Saturday when he was simultaneously drilled by a pair of Illini defenders. He was carted off the field. Brendon Kay, who threw for 1,298 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions and in 2012, will return to the starting lineup. Bennie Coney will ascend to backup QB duties, and coach Tommy Tuberville said the redshirt freshman would also see the field. "If you remember last spring, Bennie Coney probably had the most improvement of anybody in spring practice," Tuberville said. "He just didn't have the experience. We'll take his talents and put them to use. He knows the offense."

Cincinnati senior QB Munchie Legaux suffered a gruesome left leg injury against Illinois.

It looked really bad and could involve knee and bone issues. The cart was immediately waved on to the field. Legaux has had an up and down career with the Bearcats and will likely have to change positions in the NFL. He completed 17 of 31 attempts for 237 yards, one touchdown, and one interception before the injury.

Former Arkansas sophomore WR Mekale McKay will transfer to Cincinnati.

McKay was recently released from his scholarship by Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and quickly chose his next destination. We expect the former Razorback to sit out the season to satisfy NCAA regulations. McKay was second on the team in receiving yards in 2012, with 312 yards on 21 receptions.

Draft insider Tony Pauline designated Cincinnati senior LB Greg Blair with a second-round preseason tag.

Blair is a "dynamite three down defender skilled in all areas of the linebacker position," Pauline writes. "Actual size/speed numbers will determine if he’s top 32 or 40-75 talent." Even mentioning that the first-round is a possibility is impressive, since Blair's emergence didn't take place until last season. He likely projects inside or as a strong side backer behind a four man front.

Arkansas sophomore WR Mekale McKay is considering transferring to another program.

"He's exploring some options," Bielema said. "He and I had a conversation a week ago where he wanted to look at different options that could be available to him." The sophomore started 10 games last year and registered 317 yards and two touchdowns on 21 catches. "I think during transition there's going to be certain guys that really kind of just jump in and go full speed ahead, and there's going to be others that maybe, it just isn't the same," Bielema added.

Draft insider Tony Pauline is hearing that Cincinnati senior LB Greg Blair is drawing late round grades from NFL scouts.

Pauline vehemently disagrees with this evaluation and considers Blair a possible top 75 or 90 selection. There has been some buzz that Blair will run a slower forty, perhaps in the 4.9s, but he plays much faster on the field. Blair made his presence felt during his first season with the Bearcats and should only build on that success.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler considers senior LB Greg Blair Cincinnati's top prospect heading into the 2013 season.

"While he exhibits strong instincts and a physical, down-hill approach against the run, he also displays impressive awareness and anticipation in space when dropping into coverage," Brugler writes. "He's not incredibly fluid in reverse and lacks an elite first step when asked to break down and redirect, but he diagnoses early and will take good angles to compensate." Blair was one of the Bearcats top tacklers last season and was granted another year of eligibility after spending time at the JUCO level.

ESPN's Joe Schad reports former Notre Dame QB Gunner Kiel will remain committed to Cincinnati.

Kiel spent one season behind Everett Golson and Tommy Rees, but transferred to the Bearcats in April. Irish fans hoping Kiel changes his mind are likely wasting their time, as a U-turn back to South Bend is very unlikely.

Cincinnati junior RB Jameel Poteat will transfer to Stony Brook.

Poteat will have two seasons of eligibility remaining, and because he is dropping down a level to the FCS, the running back should be able to play in 2013. ""Jameel is a very talented player who will have an immediate impact on our team," head coach Chuck Priore said in a statement. "He possesses a great combination of speed and toughness."

Notre Dame redshirt senior TE Jake Golic will transfer to Cincinnati.

Golic will be eligible to play immediately in 2013. He only appeared in four games throughout his Irish career, but the son of former NFL player Mike Golic will have a second chance with the Bearcats. The school recently produced talented tight end Travis Kelce, who was selected in the third-round this past April.

Former Notre Dame sophomore QB Gunner Kiel will transfer to Cincinnati.

Kiel recently visited Cincinnati, Ball State and Miami University in Ohio and considered visiting Mississippi, while also discussing Kansas State and Mississippi State as possible landing spots. "Kiel will have three years of eligibility remaining and said he wanted a chance to compete for a starting position in 2014," per ESPN.

Chiefs selected Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce with the No. 63 overall pick.

Kelce (6-5, 255) is a sure-handed receiver and flashed dominant in-line blocking ability for Cincinnati, reminiscent of Heath Miller. He lasted this long due to character concerns; Kelce was suspended for the entire 2010 season for reasons thought to be drug-related. Kelce caught 45 balls for 722 yards (16.0 YPR) and eight touchdowns as a senior. At his April 4 Pro Day, Kelce ran 4.62 with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump -- better numbers than both Tyler Eifert and Zach Ertz. A pro-ready blocker, the athletic measurables suggest Kelce could become an elite all-around tight end if his head is on straight. He has an awful lot of long-term fantasy potential.
