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. 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."

Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson "was a pleasant surprise" during a film review, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Grayson's combination of reasonable size (6-foot-2, 220 pounds), accuracy, mobility and instincts intrigue me as much as any senior quarterback in the country," Rang wrote. The senior signal-caller has thrown 32 touchdowns versus six interceptions to earn Player of the Year in the Mountain West Conference. "Grayson has a chance to build upon his numbers December 20 in a Las Vegas Bowl matchup with a Utah defense that boasts two other late-blooming NFL prospects in pass rusher Nate Orchard and lanky cornerback Eric Rowe," Rang wrote.

Despite missing a game due to injury, Higgins has torched the CSU single-season receiving mark with 1,640 yards. In addition, he has 89 catches and 17 touchdowns in only 11 games. An NFL scout recently said of Higgins, "[he is] just a sophomore, but he looks like the goods."

Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart ran for 115 yards on 23 carries in a loss over the weekend to Air Force.

And to think, Hart might have been Alabama's fourth-string running back this season. Instead, he's been one of the non-Power Conferences' best playmakers, posting 1,254 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. Hart transferred from Alabama during the offseason as a graduate, ensuring his right to play immediately.
Nov 30 - 10:54 PM

Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson completed 23-of-46 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 27-24 loss to Air Force.

Though this wasn't a showing he'll recount to his grandchildren, the senior is enjoying his finest season. He's thrown for 3,779 yards on 64.8-percent completions and a 32/6 TD/INT ratio. An AFC West scout told NFL.com earlier this month that Grayson has "really emerged" this season. Scouts think that the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Grayson has the physical ability to play at the next level, though TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that evaluators were concerned about his ability to "dissect a complicated playbook" in the NFL.
Nov 30 - 10:31 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Colorado State senior LB Aaron Davis is a "good football player worthy of being selected in the late rounds next April."

Pauline called the Rams "one of the nation’s most underrated teams" and believes Davis is "the unsung hero on defense." The senior, whom Pauline calls "tough, instinctive and competitive," leads CSU with 104 tackles; his next closest teammate is nearly 20 tackles behind. "Displaying versatility in his game he’s broken up 6 passes while recording 5.5 tackles for loss," Pauline wrote. "Davis won’t impress many with pre-draft workouts as he’s just a good football player worthy of being selected in the late rounds next April."

Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart matched a school record with six touchdowns in Saturday's win over New Mexico.

Five came on the ground, and one came through the air. Hart finished with a career-high 230 rushing yards on 20 carries, adding 42 yards as a receiver. Hart, a former Alabama player and a one-time former No. 1 all-purpose back by Rivals.com, has 1,139 rushing yards and 16 rushing scores (18 total) on the season.
Nov 23 - 9:56 PM

Colorado State sophomore WR Rashard Higgins abused New Mexico to the tune of 10 receptions for 167 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday.

Higgins missed the Rams' last game against Hawaii with a shoulder injury he suffered in the fourth quarter against San Jose State on the first day of this month. During the game, he set the CSU single-season receiving mark with 1,447 yards, passing David Anderson's mark in 2003. Higgins has done so on 77 receptions, scoring a ridiculous 15 touchdowns in 10 games.
Nov 23 - 9:42 PM

Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson completed 13-of-24 passes for 278 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 49-22 win over Hawaii.

Grayson was without top receiver Rashard Higgins, but it didn't matter. Colorado State was in control of the game thoughtout and by the fourth quarter Grayson was sitting on the bench with the team comfortably ahead. The senior broke the school record for touchdown passes in a season when he hit a wide-open Charles Lovett with a 52-yard bomb in the first quarter. On the season, Grayson's now thrown for 3,024 yards, 26 touchdowns and five interceptions.
Nov 9 - 5:28 PM

An AFC West scout told NFL.com that Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson has "really emerged" this season.

With quarterbacks Derek Carr and David Fales out of the conference, the scout noted, Grayson's really begun to soar. Grayson's shown a toughness too, playing through shoulder and groin injuries. This season, he's thrown for 2,746 yards and has a 22/5 TD/INT ratio. Scouts think that the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Grayson has the physical ability to play at the next level. It should be noted, though, that several weeks ago, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that evaluators were concerned about his ability to "dissect a complicated playbook" in the NFL.
