Colorado sophomore LB N.J. Falo and redshirt freshman RB Dino Gordon were charged with three felonies in connection to an alleged dorm-room theft.

The pair was arrested last month after being accused of stealing prescription drugs, laptops, video games and other electronics from a dorm room. They've been charged with second-degree burglary, theft between $2,000 and $5,000, possession of a controlled substance and second-degree trespassing, the first three of which are felonies. Falo and Gordon are suspended indefinitely from the football team.

Saints signed Colorado CB Ken Crawley.

Crawley (6'0/187) started all four years for the Buffaloes, logging three career interceptions and 36 pass breakups. He offers impressive athletic tools, running 4.43 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical at the Combine. Crawley's tape is more concerning after allowing 19 TD passes in his career and committing 12 pass-interference penalties as a junior and senior. Crawley's plus size-speed combination got him here. Now it'll be up to NFL coaches to mold him into a big-league player.

Ravens signed Colorado OT Stephane Nembot.

Nembot (6'7/322) converted from defensive end to offensive line at Colorado, going on to start for 3 1/2 seasons at right tackle before protecting the blind side for the final month of his senior year. A native of Cameroon, Nembot has vine-like arms (34 5/8") and huge hands (10 5'8"), and didn't begin playing football until his junior year in high school. Nembot has a long way to go, but he is a capable enough athlete with an intriguing enough build to be worth a look as a developmental project.

Rams signed Colorado WR Nelson Spruce.

Spruce (6'1/206) set a Pac 12 record for career receptions (294) as a four-year starter for the Buffs, also setting CU school records in receiving yards (3,347) and receiving TDs (23). He was exposed badly at the Combine, running 4.69 with a 9-foot-6 broad jump and just 12 bench-press reps. Sure handed and functional only in the short to intermediate areas, Spruce will need to show special teams and slot receiver value in order to become an NFL factor.

Colorado suspended redshirt senior DT Samson Kafovalu indefinitely following his arrest on suspicion of obstructing an officer on Friday morning.

Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly addressed Kafovalu's arrest. According to her, bouncers at the Sundown Saloon called the police after the 6-foot-4, 275-pound redshirt senior was denied entrance to the bar and refused to cooperate. He exhibited signs of extreme intoxication at the time. When officers arrived on the scene, they attempted to shuttle Kafovalu into a taxi. He was taken into custody after he acted aggressively toward one of the officers. Colorado immediately suspended the defensive tackle. This was his third negative encounter with law enforcement.

The Denver Post's Mitchell Byars reports that Colorado senior DE Nathaniel Robbins was arrested on suspicion of 18 counts, including six counts of assault.

Where to even begin. According to an arrest affidavit, officers responded to a call at 3:42 a.m. regarding a dispute between Robbins and his girlfriend. The incident began when she looked through his phone while he was sleeping on her couch and discovered evidence that he was likely cheating on her. At which point she threw a glass of water at him and asked him to leave. He instead began to "throw her around the room," according to the affidavit. Once officers arrived, one pulled a firearm and demanded Robbins surrender. The 6-foot-5, 252-pounder instead tackled the officer and one other. Eventual backup would subdue him. Probably needless to say, Robbins has been suspended indefinitely.

Colorado WR Nelson Spruce ran his forties in the low 4.5s at his pro day.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound's speed is often questioned, but his production never has been. Spruce caught 89 passes for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns last season and had 106 catches for 1,198 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014. "I'm told besides catching the ball well, he ran very good routes," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote of Spruce's pro day.
Mar 13 - 4:46 PM

Colorado T Stephane Nembot had private interviews with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals after his pro day.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot clocked a 5.19 second forty. That's two-tenths of a second better than his Combine time (he checked into that event at an elephantine 6-foot-6, 322 pounds). In Boulder this week, Nembot added a 4.82 second short shuttle and a 7.88 second 3-cone. "I'm told he was impressive during drills," Pauline wrote.

Colorado sophomore LB Derek McCartney will miss Friday's practice after donating bone marrow.

In your "Restored Faith in Humanity" story of the day, McCartney took part in HC Mike MacIntyre's "Be the Match" program and donated bone marrow to a cancer patient. MacIntyre was rightfully moved by the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder's gesture, saying, "He’s an exceptional young man. He’s going to get his master’s before he’s gone in two years and he’s an excellent leader on our team." MacIntyre also said one other thing about the sophomore: "He's going to save a life."

Colorado promoted director of player development Darian Hagan to RB coach.

Hagan's a Buffalo through-and-through, having quarterbacked the team in the early 90's. After hanging up his cleats, he served as an offensive assistant for Colorado from 2005 to 2011. He's served as director of player development in the four years since. In a statement, HC Mike MacIntyre said, "Darian brings a lot of pride and passion to our football program with his history here, and also brings expertise to our running backs. In shifting our offensive staff assignments a little bit, he will give us another dimension in our running game and working with our running backs."

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock called Colorado T Stephane Nembot "a raw, developmental prospect."

Nembot's playing in Saturday's Shrine Game. He's already been hit with a holding call, so that's not great. Though to be fair, he's still learning the position. The 6-foot-7, 300-pounder initially joined the Buffaloes as a defensive tackle. "He has no clue what he's doing," Mayock wrote. Ouch. The analyst is still intrigued, though, as Nembot's got the kind of huge frame that scouts will feel they can massage into greatness.

Per CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, Colorado T Stephane Nembot "looks the part and has light feet, but his balance issues could keep him from sticking at the next level."

"He was called out by the coaches several times for playing too high and had struggle adjusting to multiple rushers," Brugler wrote of his observations from Shrine Game practices. The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot was a four-year starter in the Pac-12, which is pretty remarkable if you know his story. Nembot, a native of Cameroon, speaks English, French, Spanish and 11 dialects from African tribes. Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level."

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce will miss the Shrine Game due to a foot injury.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris reports that while the foot injury is of the minor variety, Spruce won't be testing it out (or risking further injury) by playing in the East-West Shrine Game on January 23. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound redshirt senior caught 89 passes for 1,053 yards and four touchdowns this past season. He's considered a potential Day 3 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, as he's not exactly a burner.

Colorado redshirt senior T Stephane Nembot will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Nembot is a four-year starter with experience at both tackle positions. Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Nembot "is a middle round choice with starting potential at the next level." Pauline believes that Nembot was "mistakenly graded as a late rounder by scouts" heading into the year.

Colorado senior CB Ken Crawley will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Crawley uses his "height and long arms to distract and disrupt receivers downfield," according to NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter. Scouts will most want to see if he can press and tackle, as the thin frame and lack of strength have been questioned.
