NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Colorado State senior WR Michael Gallup as the No. 10 receiving prospect to watch in 2017.

"Gallup's a bounding athlete with light feet," Zierlein wrote. "He finds ways to get open and has a good feel for creating late space to make the catch." The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder was named first-team All-Mountain West last season after he posted 76 catches for 1,272 yards and 14 touchdowns. "Has an exceptional spin move that he unleashes on would-be tacklers and his ability to stack yardage after the catch is appealing," Zierlein wrote. "He appears to be a step counter in his routes, though, and needs to sharpen his breaks."

Colorado State senior WR Michael Gallup said that his timing with senior QB Nick Stevens is sharper now than it was last season.

"I think we have our timing. It’s not perfect, but it’s way better than it was last season, even in bowl game (against Idaho)," Gallup said. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder is coming off a 2016 season in which he was named first-team All-Mountain West after he notched 76 catches for 1,272 yards (16.7 yards per reception) and 14 touchdowns. Full steam ahead toward the coming season for the budding star.

Over the spring, Colorado State coach Mike Bobo talked about the need to identify a third running back.

The Rams are set at the top two slots on the depth chart with Dalyn Dawkins (919 yards and four touchdowns on 161 carries last year) and Izzy Matthews (734 yards and 13 touchdowns on 153 carries last year), but the hierarchy fogs up after that. Sophomore Marvin Kinsey Jr. missed the spring while recovering from ACL surgery, allowing redshirt freshman Darius May and Rashaad Boddie to compete for touches. Kinsey underwent surgery in late December and may not be ready for the start of the season. "We've got to find us a No. 3 running back," Bobo said over the weekend. "We hope Marvin's back at the beginning of the season, but you never know."

Colorado State junior WR Olabisi Johnson scored the game-winning touchdown in the spring game.

Johnson finished with seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown, producing a bit more than star receiver Michael Gallup, who had four catches for 61 yards and a touchdown. The 6-foot, 190-pound Johnson was plagued by a broken hand last year, but he still finished with a decent 28 receptions for 613 yards. What really opened our eyes was when he went off for a 7-265-2 line in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Idaho.

Utah senior DB Jordan Fogal transferred to Colorado State as a graduate.

Fogal spent the first two years of his collegiate career in the JUCO ranks before walking on at Utah. He made two starts this past season, finishing out with 20 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble. The 5-foot-10, 186-pounder's place on his new team's depth chart should clarify when August camp gets underway. He will be eligible to play immediately in 2017.

Colorado State sophomore WR Anthony Hawkins transitioned to corner this spring.

"Just his body language and our conversations with him and (CB coach Terry) Fair in passing about schematically and fundamentals with him, I think he's having fun," said HC Mike Bobo. "I think he sees himself having a chance to be a starter over there." When Bobo released the post-spring two-deep, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Hawkins was listed as the team's second left corner behind Kevin Nutt Jr. Putting a bow on Hawkins' short-lived career as receiver with the Rams, he logged 11 catches for 81 yards as a true freshman in 2016.

According to the arrest affidavit for Colorado State junior S Braylin Scott, he is being accused of stealing jewelry from redshirt freshman LB Hunter Donnelly.

In the arrest warrant, officer Torrey Cleveland wrote that he was responding to a report from Donnelly that a Rolex and four diamond bracelets had been stolen on April 14. Scott was arrested on Wednesday and faces three counts of felony burglary. He was suspended indefinitely following his arrest. Last season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder led Colorado with three interceptions.

Colorado State junior S Braylin Scott was arrested and charged with three counts of felony burglary on Wednesday.

An arrest warrant was issued for Scott on May 2 in relation to a robbery on April 11. He faces the following felony charges: Burglary of a dwelling, theft of property valued at $5,000-$20,000 and felony burglary. No further information is available as to the specific incident at this juncture. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder has been suspended indefinitely in the wake of his arrest. Last season, he recorded 39 tackles while picking off a team-high three passes. He did not participate in spring practice due to his continued recovery from a broken wrist and was not listed on the two-deep depth chart released after the team's spring game on April 22.

Rams signed Colorado State LB Kevin Davis.

Davis (6’2/235) made 27 starts for the CSU Rams, compiling 27 career tackles for loss with seven sacks and four forced fumbles. He earned second-team All-Mountain West as a senior. Undersized for an NFL inside linebacker and not athletic enough to run and chase from the outside, Davis managed a 4.91 forty in Indy. His big-league ticket is special teams, where Davis did shine early in his college career. On defense, Davis would do well to emerge as a reliable fourth linebacker or spot-starter type.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline predicts that, at the very least, Colorado State T Nick Callender will make an NFL team's practice squad in the fall.

"He possesses nice size and solid footwork in pass protection," Pauline wrote. "Callender needs to improve his strength and learn to finish blocks, but at the very least I see him making a practice squad this fall." Callender was an honorable mention All-Mountain West pick in 2016 after starting 10 games at left tackle. The Rams' offensive line allowed merely 1.0 sacks per game, good for No. 8 in the country.
Mar 20 - 3:11 PM

Colorado St. LB Kevin Davis has "solid athleticism to finish as a tackler," according to NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, but lacks "functional strength and interior grit."

"Davis needs to get better at creating his own opportunities with aggression and urgency if he is to make an NFL roster," Zierlein wrote. "He will likely have to move outside as he lacks the anchor and physicality for the interior." Davis led the Rams with 110 tackles, 10.5 TFL, three sacks and four forced fumbles en route to 2016 second-team All-Mountain West honors.

Colorado State football coach Mike Bobo expects junior QB Nick Stevens to remain starter next year.

"Nick Stevens is our starter right now," Bobo said. "Nick Stevens is obviously our starter going into spring ball; Nick Stevens will be our starter going into fall camp." The 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior-to-be will have to fend off sophomore-to-be Collin Hill to keep the starting gig. Hill briefly overtook Stevens this past season but tore his ACL in October. Stevens finished with 1,936 passing yards and a 19/5 TD/INT rate while ranking No. 5 nationally in passing efficiency (171.3). Stevens capped off the campaign by throwing for 445 yards and five touchdowns in the wild 61-50 bowl loss to Idaho.

Colorado State booted junior WR Xavier Williams off the team for a rules violation.

Williams' abbreviated campaign ended with four cathces for 91 yards. In two years with the Rams, he had 49 catches for 661 yards and five touchdowns.

Colorado State dismissed redshirt freshman defensive lineman O’Shea Jackson for a "failure to comply with team rules."

Jackson was a six-game starter this fall. He made 16 tackles, including 2.5 TFLs.
Jan 7 - 12:53 PM

Colorado State sophomore WR Olabisi Johnson caught seven passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 61-50 loss to Idaho in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Johnson has been a deep threat all season long, averaging 21.9 yards per reception for the 2016 campaign. He topped that by a healthy margin on Thursday in averaging a sweet 37.9 yards per catch. The 6-foot, 190-pounder scored both of his touchdowns from distance against the Vandals, hauling in a wide-open 52-yard bomb from QB Nick Stevens at the start of the second quarter and coming back around to snatch a 73-yarder early in the fourth quarter. Prior to this statistically noteworthy showing, Johnson had not posted a 100-yard receiving effort for the 2016 campaign.
