Central Michigan senior RB Thomas Rawls has been suspended indefinitely after being charged with three felonies.

The charges include stealing a purse at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort and stealing two credit cards from said purse, according to beat writer Nate Schneider. On Saturday, a CMU release stated "an issue that came to our attention," and Rawls was subsequently withheld from the game against Syracuse. The Michigan transfer rushed for 276 yards and three touchdowns on 56 attempts prior to missing this contest. The Chippewas lost 40-3 to Syracuse.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline grades Central Michigan redshirt junior WR Titus Davis as a potential fourth-round prospect, and notes scouts "think highly" of the prospect.

"Inside sources tell me some of his official measurables will fall short of NFL standards and could push him into the late part of the draft," Pauline wrote. Davis was voted the team MVP after leading the Chippewas with 61 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight receiving scores last year. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Davis reportedly has a forty in the 4.4s, but we'll have to wait for an appearance at the combine to confirm.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler says Central Michigan redshirt senior WR Titus Davis is a draftable prospect because of his production.

Davis was voted the team MVP after leading the Chippewas with 61 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight receiving scores last year. "He isn't the biggest or fastest, but is more than adequate in both areas, shifting gears well in his routes to create separation and accelerate downfield," Brugler wrote. "Davis can be overmatched too easily by defensive backs and needs to show more of a physical nature in tight coverage, but the production speaks for itself and a big reason he is viewed as a draftable player." Draft Insider Tony Pauline recently tagged Davis as a preseason Rds. 4-5 prospect.

Draft Insider Tony Pauline views Central Michigan redshirt junior WR Titus Davis as a Rds. 4-5 prospect prior to the 2014 season.

That's a slight improvement over last year, when Pauline gave Davis a 6-7 round grade. For the second straight summer, Davis ranks as the MAC's second-best draft-eligible receiver, behind Bowling Green's Chris Gallon. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Davis can fly, with a forty in the 4.4s. Davis earned All-Mac First-Team honors last year when he led CMU with 61 receptions, ranking second in the conference with 1,109 receiving yards.

Colts signed Central Michigan RB Zurlon Tipton.

Tipton ranked as NFL.com writer Gil Brandt's 11th-best undrafted RB. At 5-foot-11 3/4 and 223 pounds, Tipton has prototypical NFL size. He also runs hard and adamant, blasting into the hole with confidence and power. He was productive in college and possesses reliable hands. Tipton runs high, however, and is not elusive nor a burner. Although he has some tools, he may be done in by his limited special teams experience.
May 13 - 10:03 PM

Central Michigan RB Zurlon Tipton ran forty times of 4.70 and 4.71 seconds at the school's pro day.

After missing seven games this season due to a broken ankle, Tipton measured in at 5-foot-11 3/4 and 223-pounds. He posted a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-11 broad jump as well as a short shuttle time of 4.48 seconds and a 6.89 second 3-cone time. Tipton also recorded 17 bench press reps. The Chippewa has talent, but has a history of injuries.

Central Michigan senior RB Zurlon Tipton returned to the field last night and rushed for eight yards on five carries.

Tipton suffered a broken ankle in early September and was expected to miss the entire season. The speedy recovery is a good sign, but Tipton, and the entire Chippewa offense, could not get much going last night. We like Tipton as a possible sixth- or seventh-round selection, but he has an extensive injury history.

Central Michigan senior RB Zurlon Tipton will miss the remainder of the season due to a broken ankle.

"We’ve got to pick it up and move on," CMU coach Dan Enos said. "Obviously, it’s not the way any of us wanted to play." Tipton might have been primed for a big season and a possible draft selection this May, but this won't help clear his long injury history. The Chips also lost quarterback Cody Kater for an extended period of time due to an injury suffered in last week's loss. Saylor Lavallii will likely start at running back.

Central Michigan senior T Jake Olson ranks as draft insider Tony Pauline's ninth-best MAC draft prospect.

Olson received a sixth season of eligibility from the NCAA in December after he injured his right knee in late September. He's expected to make the switch to the left side this season, a spot formerly occupied by No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher. Olson is ranked by Pauline as an undrafted free agent at the moment, a sad commentary for the formerly elite prospect. "One time highly rated tackle prospect whose career has been ravaged by knee injuries," he writes. "Looked like a potential first round pick after his freshman season but has struggled with several knee issues since. Medical risk at this point."

Central Michigan junior WR Titus Davis earned a 6-7 round grade from draft insider Tony Pauline.

Davis ranks as the MAC's second-best draft-eligible receiver, behind Bowling Green's Chris Gallon. The ideal-framed wideout is also CMU's best prospect, according to Pauline. "Tall, rangy pass catcher with an upside," writes Pauline. "Quick, has a burst and shows skill running after the catch. Struggles in battles and may have difficulty with the jam at the next level."

Michigan State redshirt senior DE Jeremy Gainer is expected to transfer.

Gainer has not participated in any of the spring practice sessions. The Detroit native has been somewhat limited to special teams during his career. He will graduate this spring, therefore Gainer will not have to sit out a season once transferring.

Chiefs selected Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick.

Fisher (6-7, 306) made 34 career starts at Central Michigan, including 28 at left tackle. With superior size, length (34 1/2" arms), and athleticism to Luke Joeckel, the Chiefs determined Fisher -- despite his smaller-school background -- was this year's premier left tackle prospect. At the Combine, Fisher ran 5.05 with a 1.70 ten-yard split and scored 23 on the Wonderlic. He'll protect Alex Smith's blindside as a rookie.

Central Michigan T Eric Fisher tells Pro Football Talk he has visited the Jaguars, Eagles, Lions, Browns and Panthers.

There's been rumors that the Chiefs could select him No. 1 overall but haven't visited with him, interestingly enough. As one can see, he's also visited with the Carolina Panthers but we don't expect him to fall that far. He'll go top 5 at worst, we think.
