Colorado hopes that redshirt junior RB Kyle Evans (hip) will be able to take part in camp in about two weeks.

Evans (5'6/175) dislocated his hip during an early March scrimmage. He won't be physically ready for action at the start of August camp, but could potentially work his way back into the fold in the middle of the month. Evans rushed for 346 yards and three touchdowns while backing up Phillip Lindsay during the 2016 campaign.

Colorado dismissed junior LB N.J. Falo.

The Buffs cited a violation of team rules but did not provide a more specific reason for Falo's dismissal. He was in the news for the wrong reasons last April, when he was hit with three felony charges stemming from an alleged dorm-room robbery. Colorado subsequently suspended him for the first three games of the 2016 season as punishment. He recorded 12 tackles (1.5 TFL) after being reinstated.

Colorado redshirt junior LB Drew Lewis has broad jumped 10’10", better than any linebacker at this year’s NFL combine.

Lewis (6'2/200) can also power clean 345, second-most on the team, and squat 435 for six reps. His father, Will, played corner the NFL and is now the director of scouting for the Kansas City Chiefs, and his uncle, Tim, is a former first-round pick as a DB by the Green Bay Packers. Lewis' older brother, Ryan, is a CB at Pitt, and three other cousins also played football at Pitt, including former NFL DB and now ESPN analyst Louis Riddick.

BSN Buffs' Chase Howell writes that last season, it was "exceptionally hard for nickel corners and safeties to try and cover [Colorado redshirt junior WR Devin Ross] at the slot receiver (or H) position."

"Ross is going to be able to do much of the same this year," Howell writes, "with defensive backs having to also focus their attention on CU’s outside receivers it should leave the speedster plenty of room down the middle to do what he does best." During the past campaign, the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder hauled in 69 passes for 787 yards and five touchdowns. Shay Fields is the team's big-dog wideout, but Ross should not be overlooked -- Thor Nystrom loves him as an option in deeper fantasy formats, slotting him into his 2017 wideout rankings at No. 121.

Colorado redshirt senior RB Michael Adkins is back to full health after missing the majority of the 2015 and 2016 seasons with hamstring and knee injuries.

Senior Phillip Lindsay is slated to start and produced over 1,700 total yards last year. Adkins will likely have a role if he can stay healthy, possibly in place of an injured Kyle Evans.

Texas Tech junior WR Tony Brown transferred to Colorado.

Brown's transfer is not exactly the most traditional of moves -- he will not be enrolling at Colorado until after the 2017 season. His departure is one of several noticeable ones from the Red Raiders this offseason, as both DT Breiden Fehoko and WR Jonathan Giles had previously transferred over to LSU. Brown (6'1, 187 pounds) caught 13 passes for 128 yards this past season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining once he joins Colorado this coming winter.

Colorado's Board of Regents approved a contract extension for HC Mike MacIntyre that will keep him with the school through the 2021 season.

MacIntyre will be paid $16.25 million over the length of the contract. This is not a boilerplate extension, as it had been in the air for some time -- just last week, the Board of Regents ordered MacIntyre and AD Rich George to each pay $100,000 to domestic violence causes after assistant Joe Tumpkin was kept on staff despite allegations of violence against an ex-girlfriend which surfaced this past winter. Tumpkin has since been fired.

Colorado redshirt sophomore CB Dante Wigley is in the running to replace either Ahkello Witherspoon and Chidobe Awuzie at corner.

A three-star junior college transfer, Wigley redshirted at Georgia Tech in 2015 before spending a year in the JUCO ranks. Now with three years of eligibility remaining, Wigley practiced at both cornerback and nickel back this spring for the Buffaloes. "We're excited about having Dante here," head coach Mike MacIntyre said. "He is a very physical, athletic corner. He is catching on to everything, working hard and doing great in school, so I am excited about what Dante has done so far and I expect him to help us a lot this fall."

ESPN's Kyle Bonagura believes Colorado senior WR Bryce Bobo is the best NFL prospect on the Buffaloes.

What's interesting about this opinion is that Bobo is -- or, more accurately, has been -- the No. 3 receiver behind Shay Fields and Devin Ross in Colorado's aerial pecking order. All three return in 2017. "At 6-2, he's a little bigger than the other two," wrote Bonagura of Bobo, "and was a Pac-12 honorable mention selection in 2016 after catching 41 passes for 523 yards."

Colorado redshirt sophomore QB Steven Montez completed 7-of-11 passes for 55 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the team's spring game.

"Sometimes he's going to turn it over. That's what guys that are aggressive do," said OC Darrin Chiaverini. "Even today, you saw he turned the ball over early, but he came back and he kept throwing it, and he hit some really nice throws." The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Montez exits the spring with a firm grip on the starting job vacated by Sefo Liufau. In three starts last season, Montez threw for 823 yards while posting a 7/3 TD/INT ratio.

Texas Tech junior WR Tony Brown will transfer.

Texas Tech has been leaking players to transfer this the offseason, with DT Breiden Fehoko heading to LSU and leading receiver Jonathan Giles also announcing his transfer intention. Brown now joins the club. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder, a three-star recruit for the 2015 cycle, caught 13 passes for 128 yards this past season. Should he transfer to another FBS program, he would need to sit out the 2017 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. He would have two seasons of eligibility remaining starting in 2018.

Browns signed Colorado LB Kenneth Olugbode.

Olugbode (6’1/222) made 36 starts at inside linebacker for the Buffaloes, tallying nine career tackles for loss, ten pass breakups, and three interceptions. He only earned honorable mention All-Pac 12 from the conference’s coaches as a senior. Olugbode revealed himself as a below-average athlete at CU’s Pro Day, managing a 4.79 forty and sluggish 7.27 three-cone time. Olugbode is headed for special teams.
May 4 - 12:41 PM

49ers signed Colorado OLB Jimmie Gilbert.

Gilbert (6’4/231) made 24 starts at 3-4 outside linebacker for the Buffaloes, tallying 31 career tackles for loss, 20 sacks, and nine forced fumbles. He earned third-team All-America honors in 2016. Still snubbed for a Combine invite, Gilbert showed plus athleticism with a 4.68 forty, 37-inch vertical, and 10-foot broad jump at Colorado’s Pro Day. While undersized by NFL edge-player standards, Gilbert offers long arms (34 1/8") and impressive pursuit speed on tape. He could earn an early role on special teams and could develop into a sub-package rusher down the line.
May 1 - 1:52 PM

Cowboys selected Colorado DT Jordan Carrell with the No. 246 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Carrell (6'2/290) was an honorable mention All-Pac 12 pick as a senior, tallying 5.5 sacks and 12 additional quarterback pressures. A low-profile prospect, Carrell helped himself at his Pro Day by running sub-5.00 (4.98, to be exact) with a solid 31 1/2-inch vertical. Carroll offers low-ceiling potential as a three-technique tackle who could eventually log rotational snaps.
Apr 29 - 6:34 PM

Seahawks selected Colorado S Tedric Thompson with the No. 111 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Thompson (6’0/204) made 37 starts in Colorado's secondary, tallying 13 career interceptions and earning second-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches as a senior. PFF College charted Thompson with an anemic 21.3 passer rating and 40.3% completion rate allowed in 2016. While an effective college player, Thompson’s drawbacks are his eighth-percentile athleticism, inconsistent tackling in the box, and lack of experience in man coverage. The younger brother of former Dolphins fifth-round pick Cedric Thompson, Tedric’s probable NFL ceiling is a third safety with special teams value.
