Colorado junior LB Addison Gillam "is active and physical" and "also has good speed," notes NFL Media.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder has logged an impressive 171 tackles and 18.5 TFL across his first two years with the Buffs. He's a mobile, attacking linebacker who could stand to add bulk for the NFL. Gillam ran for the California state championships in the 4x100-meter relay in high school.

Colorado senior DL Josh Tupou will not play for the Buffaloes in 2015.

Tupou was arrested in March for suspicion of second and third degree assault, among other charges. However, that case was dismissed in April. Colorado associate AD David Plati said the school cannot divulge information as it relates to why Tupou will not be playing for Colorado this fall. The defensive lineman has been called the anchor of the defensive line and started all 24 games over the last two seasons.

Colorado HC Mike MacIntyre is confident that his rebuilding process will be successful.

"There's unbelievable history here, and we can do it again," MacIntyre said. Though MacIntyre has a 6-18 record with the Buffaloes, he didn't have much to work with when he inherited the job. He previously led San Jose State from a two-win outfit into a 10-win squad by his third year. "I think Mike has the best chance of any of us in the past 60 years," former coach Gary Barnett said. "We never had that continuity of support. He's got that now." Colorado's new facilities are, according to MacIntyre, "the best in America top to bottom."

Colorado redshirt senior WR Nelson Spruce "has become a huge asset as a reliable chain-mover," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The Buffaloes have had few bright spots the last several years, but Spruce emerged as one of the nation's most reliable playmakers at receiver," Brown wrote. Spruce, who reached out to the NFL Draft Advisory Board over the winter but decided to return for his senior year, caught 106 passes for 1,198 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014.

Colorado redshirt senior Nelson Spruce has been working to increase his explosiveness.

"I’m working to be quicker in and out of breaks," he said. Last season, Spruce was perhaps the most underrated receiver in the nation, posting 106 catches for 1,198 yards (11.3-yards-per-catch average) and 12 touchdowns. "Those are impressive numbers for a player who was the focus of opposing teams’ top defensive backs throughout the season," wrote ESPN's David Lombardi.

2015 will be junior Sefo Liufau's third season as Colorado's starting QB.

"He had an excellent spring. I was impressed," head coach Mike Macintrye said. Colorado might lack talent comparable to other Pac-12 schools, but Liufau completed 65 percent of his passes last year for 3200 yards and a 28:15 TD to INT ratio. The Buffs open the season against Hawaii.

Colorado senior DT Josh Tupou is "country strong with a lot of raw power," wrote ESPN's Kevin Weidl.

"Tupou has flashed on tape," he wrote. "Active and heavy hands." The 6-foot-3, 325-pound Tupou was charged for assault in the spring but charges were later dropped by the Boulder County District Attorney’s office because of a case of mistaken identity. As a draft prospect, he provides an intriguing blend of size, strength and athleticism.

Colorado WR Tyler McCulloch "performed well at Colorado's pro day and really helped himself," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The jumbo 6-foot-5, 218-pound McCulloch clocked a 4.5 forty, leaped to a vertical jump of 37 inches, and posted a broad jump of 10-10. He chipped in a 4.23 second short shuttle and a 7.13 second 3-cone drill. "McCulloch caught the ball very well," Pauline wrote. "Back in 2012 McCulloch, then a sophomore, looked terrific on film as he was the Buffs primary receiver as Paul Richardson was on the sidelines with a knee injury. McCulloch then was injured himself in 2013 but returned to play well this year. Part of the issue for McCulloch was terrible quarterback play at Colorado, but rest assured, he's someone who could surprise in camp this summer."

Colorado redshirt junior Nelson Spruce informed head coach Mike MacIntyre that he'll be returning to the program for his senior year.

The Colorado prospect was expected to return, but Spruce did explore his options and reached out to the NFL Draft Advisory Board. Spruce caught 106 passes for 1,198 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and became the first Colorado wideout to haul in 100 receptions in a season. His 106 catches are the fourth highest total by a Pac-12 Conference receiver in history.

Colorado senior P Darragh O'Neill accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

This four-year starter has been one of the best punters in the nation over the past few years. O'Neill averaged 44.6 yards per punt with a long of 62 yards this season. He'll either go in Round 7 or sign a UDFA contract after the draft.

Colorado senior CB Greg Henderson accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Henderson has been starting since he stepped foot in Boulder. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder is presently considered a late-Day 3 to potential UDFA prospect, though he'll obviously attempt over the winter to achieve the former. Henderson "is a fluid athlete with balance, agility and speed who has shown improving awareness and mitts for the interception," CBS Sports' Rob Rang observes.

Colorado redshirt junior Nelson Spruce told reporters he expects to return to school in 2015 rather than entering the NFL draft.

"It's something that is not even in my mind until we finish this season," Spruce said. "I'll have to sit down, but I plan on being back next year." In terms of production Spruce is one of the nation's leaders, posting 99 catches for 1,091 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce is a "good looking player," according to an AFC West scout.

Spruce currently leads the nation with 90 catches and has racked up 1002 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. It's not certain if the 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior will declare for the draft after the season. If Spruce does indeed declare, the aforementioned scout said that he was "not sure if [Spruce is] better suited to outside the numbers or in the slot." Expect to hear more reports about Spruce's draftability should he declare.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce on Saturday broke the school's record for most receptions in a season with 90.

Spruce finished with 13 catches for 138 yards in a loss to Washington, breaking the record of 83 catches, set last year by Paul Richardson, now of the Seahawks. Spruce is the eighth player in school history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and he still has three games remaining.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Nelson Spruce leads the FBS in catches per game with 10.14.

These numbers might be a bit inflated by a 19 catch double overtime game against Cal, going for 179 yards and three touchdowns. Spruce is obviously draft-eligible and is a longtime starter and a current team captain.
