Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart "will have a tough time holding up physically at the next level with his limited frame," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Hart will have a tough time holding up physically at the next level with his limited frame, but he could add some spice to a NFL backfield as a change of pace option," Brugler wrote. The former Alabama transfer and second-team all-Mountain West selection, ran for 1,275 rushing yards (eighth best single-season total in school history) and 16 touchdowns. Brugler adds that Hart "doesn't look like much, but he was a jitterbug with the ball in his hands, showing explosive quickness to make defenders miss" at The College Gridiron Showcase.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Seahawks like Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo.

"With James Carpenter slated to hit the open market in two months and Russell Okung up for free agency in 2016, there’s been a long held belief the Seattle Seahawks will make offensive line a priority in April’s draft," Pauline wrote. "Its been passed around the internet the team likes Colorado State’s Tyler Sambrailo, something I’ve known since October and was confirmed earlier this week." Pauline reported in October that Sambrailo is receiving grades from a top 45 choice all the way down to a fifth-round prospect. An AFC Scout speaking to NFL.com last month said Sambrailo is "athletic" and "probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard."

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein notes that Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson "was up and down" at Senior Bowl practices.

"But he had scouts buzzing in the stands with some of his throws Thursday afternoon," Zierlein wrote. "Grayson threw a couple of poor interceptions -- to TCU's Kevin White and Norfolk State's Lynden Trail -- but made up for it with impressive touch on deep throws and with fade routes in the end zone. Grayson is a polarizing prospect in scouting circles but had a solid day." ESPN's Todd McShay believes Grayson "could wind up as the fifth or sixth QB selected -- likely on Day 3" because the QB class is so shallow. The Mountain West Conference offensive player of the year posted 7,975 yards and a 55/18 TD/INT ratio across 27 starts for the Rams over the past two years.

Scout's Inc. calls Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson "the most polished [at the Senior Bowl] in terms of his mechanics, but he has physical limitations."

"He has average arm strength, with his downfield passes hanging in the air a little bit," wrote Todd McShay, Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl. "He also struggled with his decision-making at times, particularly during the team periods." Grayson, who posted 7,975 yards and a 55/18 TD/INT ratio across 27 starts for the Rams over the past two years, is fighting to become a late Day 3 pick.

ESPN's Todd McShay believes Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson "could wind up as the fifth or sixth QB selected -- likely on Day 3" because the QB class is so shallow.

"He struggled in CSU's bowl loss to Utah, and needs to regain some positive momentum for his draft stock this week," McShay wrote. "He has adequate size and arm strength with the mobility to extend plays, but I want to see more accuracy from him on throws that require anticipation." Grayson posted 7,975 yards and a 55/18 TD/INT ratio across 27 starts for the Rams over the past two years.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo must improve his strength.

"Colorado State had an offensive lineman (Weston Richburg) shine at the Senior Bowl last year and Sambrailo is attempting to follow in his footsteps," Brugler wrote. "The athleticism and toughness are there, but his functional strength is a question mark for the next level, something Sambrailo won't be able to hide in Mobile." An AFC Scout speaking to NFL.com last month said Sambrailo is "athletic" and "probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported in October that Sambrailo is receiving grades from a top 45 choice all the way down to a fifth-round prospect.

Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart said Friday he is leaving school early to declare for the NFL Draft.

Hart transferred to Colorado State as a graduate over the summer, but he had two years of eligibility remaining. Instead of exhausting them, he's going to roll the dice and enter the draft. "I'm going to declare for the draft," Hart said. "It was just a dream I always had growing up, and it's an opportunity I have this season, so I want to take advantage of it." Hart, a second-team all-Mountain West selection, ran for 1,275 rushing yards (eighth best single-season total in school history) and 16 touchdowns. He isn't assured of being drafted. You might recall that CSU RB Kapri Bibbs declared early at the end of last season after rushing for 1,741 yards and 31 touchdowns. He went undrafted, eventually landing on the Broncos' practice squad.
Jan 3 - 7:43 PM

Colorado State made it official, announcing Georgia OC Mike Bobo as the school's new head coach.

Bobo spent practically his entire career at Georgia working his way up from GA to offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach outside of one season with Jacksonville State. Colorado State's former head coach, Jim McElwain, recently jumped to Florida. Recently Bobo has focused on running the football with Todd Gurley and nick Chubb, but when running back injuries hit he certainly was not afraid of airing it out with Aaron Murray.

The Denver Post reported Monday that Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will become the next head coach at Colorado State.

Bobo, who has overseen the Bulldogs' offense since 2006, is one of the nation's most respected assistants. Despite inconsistent QB play, Georgia led the SEC in scoring offense (41.7 points per game) this season. At CSU, Bobo would replace Jim McElwain as head coach.

Colorado State sophomore WR Rashard Higgins had seven receptions for 110 yards before leaving Saturday's Las Vegas Bowl in the fourth quarter with a lower leg injury.

The Biletnikoff Award finalist was essentially the Rams' only source of offense during the game, so of course he hurt himself before the final gun sounded. Higgins, who was named to the Associated Press All-American first team, leads the nation with 1,750 receiving yards. He finished the season with 96 receptions and 17 touchdowns.

Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo struggled to contain star Utah defensive end Nate Orchard in Saturday's lopsided loss to the Utes.

NFL.com's Bryan Fischer wrote that Orchard "got the better of the matchup and won on all cards in a unanimous decision." A formerly high-powered Rams offense mustered only 10 points, though obviously the unhinging of the entire offense can't be blamed on one player, especially a lineman. Still, this was one of the bowl season's biggest matchups, and Sambrailo did not acquit himself well. Coming in, he was a consensually higher rated prospect than the player who ate his lunch. "Sambrailo, who was not matched up against Orchard on every play, did what he could to hold off the Utah defensive line by showing off his power on run blocks and strength in pass protection, but he has had better games against top competition," Fischer wrote.

Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart ran for only 21 yards on seven carries in Saturday's loss to Utah.

Once the 45-10 Utah victory got out of hand, the Rams' coaching staff pulled Hart from the game, ending his collegiate career. It was a disappointing finish for the former Alabama Crimson Tide runner, but Hart still enjoyed an ultra productive season with 1,275 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns.

Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson threw for 227 yards and an interception in Saturday's 45-10 loss to Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Grayson probably knows that he's going to be in a dog fight to prove he deserves to get drafted on Day 3, and Saturday afternoon will not help him in that respect. Utah has a decent defense, but it has struggled to defend the pass this season, leading to the belief that Grayson could be in for a big game. Instead, the senior struggled to get in a rhythm and move the offense. The Mountain West Conference offensive player of the year will next get a chance to impress scouts in the Senior Bowl.

NFL Media reporter Alber Breer notes that one AFC Scout believes Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo is "athletic" and "probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard."

"He's athletic," The AFC scout told NFL Media's Albert Breer."He's probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard. He's been a great run blocker for them, he can really get to the second level. ... He's not gonna overwhelm you with his size, he won't overwhelm you with his athleticism. But he does everything well." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported in October that Sambrailo is receiving grades from a top 45 choice all the way down to a fifth-round prospect. Brugler adds that "there is a lot to like about Sambrailo's NFL potential."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo's "movement skills and instincts translate very well" to the next level.

"Sambrailo's functional strength is a question mark, but his movement skills and instincts translate very well," Brugler writes.
