In a review of Fresno State senior WR Aaron Peck (foot) prior to his season-ending injury, NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter wrote that "a strong senior season displaying the speed and agility to be a factor after the catch will help him rise up draft boards."

Unfortunately, Peck will miss the season after suffering a left foot injury earlier this month. It was a devastating turn of events both for the player and his team, who hoped Peck would assume the No. 1 WR role with Josh Harper off to the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 217-pound Peck hauled in 32 passes for 419 yards (13.1 YPC) and three touchdowns last season. He should take a redshirt and try to rehab his draft stock in 2016.

Fresno State freshman RB Bryson Oglesby will likely sit out the 2015 season.

Oglesby is a partial academic qualifier, meaning he did not fully qualify academically to receive a scholarship. Oglesby, who was considered a three-star recruit, will be able to practice with the team all season.

Former Washington State junior CB Daquawn Brown will transfer to Fresno State.

Brown was dismissed last December after he started 11 of 12 games for a "violation of team rules." That offense took place after Brown was charged with felony second-degree assault. He will need to redshirt the 2015 season.

Former West Virginia QB Ford Childress will attempt to walk on at Fresno State.

Childress received interest from Texas and Texas A&M, but ultimately decided to cast his lost with FSU head coach Tim DeRuyter and the Bulldogs. Childress, who didn't play last year after being suspended for a violation of team rules chance, has a chance to win the starting QB job immediately. He'll take on redshirt sophomore Zack Greenlee, redshirt freshman Kilton Anderson and true freshman Chason Virgil this summer.

Fresno State redshirt freshman RB Kurt Scoby will transfer to Azusa Pacific.

Scoby suffered a concussion last fall and ended up redshirting his only season with the Bulldogs. Because it is a drop in level, Scoby will be allowed to play immediately. He should help fill in for the loss of Terrell Watson.

Raiders signed Fresno State WR Josh Harper.

Harper (6'1/191) was a two-year starter and four-year contributor in Fresno State's pro-ish-style offense, piling up 228 career catches for 2,938 yards (12.9 YPR) and 29 TDs. Showing concerning athleticism at the Combine, Harper managed a 4.64 forty, 32-inch vertical, and 9-foot broad jump. Harper did flash playmaking ability after the catch in college, and displays an impressive enough combination of foot quicks and body control that NFL Films' Greg Cosell has suggested Harper boasts similarities to Steelers star Antonio Brown. That is an extremely aggressive assessment, but makes Harper someone to monitor.

Rams selected Fresno State OG Cody Wichmann with the No. 215 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Wichmann (6'5/319) has good size for the interior and runs 4.98 with an above-average 8-foot-10 broad jump. He was College Football Focus' No.4-graded guard in the nation last season. Wichmann is a plus pass blocker, but doesn't have the strength to get out and drive-block in the run game.
May 2 - 5:19 PM

Bengals selected Fresno State DB Derron Smith with the No. 197 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Smith (5'10/200) was a ballhawk in the Fresno State secondary, piling up 15 career INTs and earning first-team All-Mountain West as a sophomore, junior, and senior. He missed the Combine due to sports hernia surgery, but was healthy for the Fresno State Pro Day, running 4.61 with a 34-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. Smith lacks upper-echelon athletic tools, but flashed man-cover skills in the slot and can function at either safety position. He projects as an early-career NFL starter if asked to play that role.
May 2 - 4:29 PM

Saints selected Fresno State DT Tyeler Davison with the No. 154 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Davison (6'2/316) was a dominant nose tackle in the Mountain West, starting 39 games and piling up 28.5 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He showed plus athleticism for his size at the Combine, running 5.18 with a 33-inch vertical and pumping 32 reps on the bench. Davison has long arms (34") and huge hands (10 3/4"), and is an extremely aggressive player who can push the pocket with power. Davison is talented enough to develop into a starter capable of playing multiple positions on the line.
May 2 - 2:47 PM

Fox Sports' Ross Jones reports that Fresno State DT Tyeler Davison had an official visit with the New Orleans Saints.

The 6-foot-2, 316-pound defensive tackle recorded 58 tackles with eight sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss in 2014. Davison earned first-team All-Mountain West honors in 2014 and lead the Bulldogs with eight sacks. The Fresno State prospect's performance during East West Shrine week, gave a nice boost to his draft stock.

Fresno State S Derron Smith "must learn to play under control as a tackler, but he should have a shot to come in and compete for a starting-safety or slot-corner job quickly," wrote NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein.

The analyst ranks Smith as the class' No. 2 overall safety, behind only Alabama stud Landon Collins. "Lacks ideal size for the position, but checks off just about every other box teams will be looking for," Zierlein wrote. "Smith's ability to match up in space against slot receivers and his willingness to get downhill and tackle will be coveted." Zierlein compares him to Marcus Gilchrist. At his pro day, the Bulldog safety leaped to a 34-inch vertical jump and a 10-3 broad jump and hoisted up 18 reps on the bench. He added a mid-4.5s in the 40 and a 4.22 in the short shuttle.

Fresno State S Derron Smith (sports hernia) "looked really fluid and smooth in the drills," reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Smith has been shelved for the past three months while recovering from sports hernia surgery. "For the most part, Smith's return was a success," Pauline wrote. The Bulldog safety leaped to a 34-inch vertical jump and 10-3 broad jump and hoisted up 18 reps on the bench. He clocked a mid-4.5s in the 40 and a 4.22 in the short shuttle. Pauline passed along that the Raiders, Jaguars, Buccaneers and Colts sent defensive back coaches to the event, each of whom met with Smith.

Fresno State DT Tyeler Davison has worked out for the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals.

On Wednesday, at his pro day workout, Davison was put through drills by the Miami Dolphins. The Bulldog weighed in at 316 pounds and clocked a 5.12 second forty, an improvement on his combine showing. The 6-foot-2, 309-pounder recorded 58 tackles with eight sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss in 2014.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that if Fresno State S Derron Smith can "produce cornerback numbers in the 40-yard dash and agility drills" at his pro day, he'll "significantly help his draft stock."

"Smith was recruited as a cornerback because of his athleticism, but he preferred to play safety because of his physical nature. If he is able to produce cornerback numbers in the 40-yard dash and agility drills, that will significantly help his draft stock, especially in this year's week class of safeties," Brugler wrote. Unfortunately, the Fresno prospect had hernia surgery, which forced him to sit out for the NFL Scouting Combine. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Smith plans to do a full work out for scouts at Fresno State's pro day on March 25th.
