Central Michigan senior DT Leterrius Walton combines ideal bulk with athleticism, says an AFC Director of Scouting.

"He's got really good size, and he's quick," the executive said. "It's not always complicated on the defensive line. He looked good this week." Walton has profited from his week in Florida. The 6-foot-5, 323-pounder, a jumbo-sized gap clogger, is hoping he's done so enough to enter the middle-round discussion. "Walton was one of the most buzzed about players from this week and is seen as an ascending prospect," wrote NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein. "He solidified his standing in practice with quality one-on-one pass-rushing reps and with steady play in the scrimmage portion. Walton is an intriguing athlete. He was a three-sport letterman in high school and came into college as an offensive lineman before being moved to the other side of the ball."

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock notes that Central Michigan senior DT Leterrius Walton had a "really good week" at East-West Shrine practices.

The 6-foot-5, 323-pound Walton was a three-year starter at Central Michigan, recording three sacks and 13 tackles for a loss in his last two years. The Chippewas prospect has the ability to clog up the middle against the run, though scouts will undoubtedly be curious to see if he can do this at the next level.

Central Michigan redshirt senior WR Titus Davis recorded six receptions for 139 yards and four touchdowns in Wednesday's 49-48 loss to Western Kentucky in the Bahamas Bowl.

If the Chippewas had converted a two-point conversion to win the game with no time remaining, Davis' last touchdown, a 75-yard score, completing a Hail Mary followed by three laterals, would have gone down as one of the most iconic plays in school history. It might anyway. The Chippewas scored 34 straight points in 12 minutes to storm back from a 49-14 deficit before coming up short. Injuries held Davis to one catch for 11 yards in the school's first four games. At full strength in the last nine, he posted 59 catches for 971 yards and 13 scores. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Davis reportedly has a forty in the 4.4s. Over the summer, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Davis as a Round 4 prospect, and noted NFL scouts "think highly" of the prospect.

Central Michigan senior RB Thomas Rawls will be held out of the school's bowl game due to academics.

Rawls joined the Chips after graduating from Michigan but missed two games this season due to injury and an off-field issue. He is clearly Central Michigan's top back, so they will be at a disadvantage against WKU without him.

Central Michigan senior DT Leterrius Walton accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Walton, standing 6-foot-5, 323 pounds, is enormous. For a player his size, Walton displays decent quickness, though scouts want to see a bit more consistency out of him. If nothing else, Walton has shown an ability to clog up the middle against the run, though scouts will undoubtedly be curious to see if he can do so against better competition.

Central Michigan redshirt junior WR Titus Davis accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Davis was voted the team MVP after leading the Chippewas with 61 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight receiving scores last year. He missed three games earlier this season, but would otherwise perhaps already have topped those numbers; as is, the receiver has 54 catches for 843 yards and nine scores in 2014. 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.

Central Michigan senior RB Thomas Rawls is considered doubtful to play against Eastern Michigan.

Rawls took a helmet to his knee in the first quarter against Buffalo and was subsequently held out of practice this week. The Michigan transfer has produced 1,011 yards and 10 TDs on 188 carries. Junior Saylor Lavallii and sophomore Martez Walker will likely share to carries on Saturday.

Central Michigan redshirt junior WR Titus Davis (knee) "reminded everybody what he's capable of Saturday" by dominating Toledo for six catches and 128 yards, writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The Chippewas' star has missed significant time this season due to a lingering knee injury. "He has been a big-play constant for the Chips, having averaged 18 and 20 yards per catch over the past two seasons, respectively, and it looks as if we'll see more of that now that he's healthy," Kiper wrote. "He has good size at almost 6-2 and about 190 pounds, and has strong hands and the ability to use his size to beat defenders for the ball, and speed to run away. I'd put an early third-day grade on him at this stage." Over the summer, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Davis as a Round 4 prospect, and noted NFL scouts "think highly" of the prospect. Davis was voted the team MVP after leading the Chippewas with 61 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight receiving scores last year. Davis reportedly has a forty in the 4.4s.

Central Michigan senior RB Thomas Rawls has been reinstated after accepting a plea deal to a charge of attempted larceny.

Rawls was indefinitely suspended after being charged with three felonies just over a week ago. The deal dropped the charges to a single high-court misdemeanor. Rawls has been cleared for all football activities heading into the September 27 game against Toledo. The Michigan transfer was the team's bets rusher prior to the suspension.

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.

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.
