Iowa State DL Devyln Cousin will transfer after the fall semester.

"I have made the decision to continue my career else where I will not forget the people I met and the friendships I made during my career at Iowa state," said Cousin in an Instagram post. He'll leave the team immediately, though he'll remain on campus to finish the fall semester prior to deciding where he'll play next. The 6-foot-2, 291-pounder played in nine games last season (two starts) while recording 12 tackles and a sack. Rivals graded him as a three-star recruit out of high school.

Iowa State redshirt senior QB Sam Richardson gets a nod for ESPN's Big 12 "All-Underrated" team.

"He is becoming a trusted leader. Coach Paul Rhoads believes he can be a top-three QB in this conference," ESPN's Max Olson wrote. In 11 starts last season, the Iowa State prospect produced 3,090 yards of total offense, passing for 2,669 yards, while rushing for 421 yards and 21 total TDs. Richardson is one of only four QBs in Cyclones' history to rush for over 1,000 yards (1,010) in a career.

Iowa State senior WR Quenton Bundrage "is athletic, has good size, runs well and also is physical," notes NFL Media.

Bundrage was a state-finalist high jumper as a high schooler in Florida. The 6-foot-2, 192-pounder tore his ACL in the Cylcones' opener last year. In 2013, his last healthy campaign, Bundrage led the team with 48 catches and ranked amongst the NCAA leaders with nine touchdown grabs.

Iowa State sophomore RB Martinez Syria has been dismissed for a violation of team rules.

The dismissal was due to a violation of team rules, as usual. Syria only saw 20 carries in five games before suffering a concussion and was held out of spring activities with a neck injury. This leaves the Cyclones very thin at running back.

Iowa State HC Paul Rhoads might be on the hot seat, according to NFL Media.

Though Rhoads led the Cyclones to bowl games in three of his first four seasons, his only winning campaign -- 7-6 in 2009 -- came with Dan McCarney's seniors. Iowa State has won only five games in the past two seasons, and they were pummeled by Kansas in 2014. "One positive for Rhoads is that he has beaten Iowa in three of the past four meetings," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Another positive: He signed a 10-year extension in 2012, which might make it difficult to give him the axe."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that "with two years of eligibility remaining," Iowa State junior CB Nigel Tribune is "a player to watch."

"Tribune doesn't stand out with his size or speed, but his improved instincts and anticipation stood out on film, using body position to bracket receivers and make plays on the ball. With two years of eligibility remaining, he's a player to watch," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-11, 188-pound lead Iowa State in passes defended with 16, while finishing second on the team with three interceptions last season. Tribune earned Second Team All-Big 12-AP honors in 2014.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that if Iowa State senior wide receiver Quenton Bundrage "is able to stay healthy, he has a NFL future."

"He isn't overly explosive in his movements, but uses quick footwork in his routes to create separation and catch the ball in stride. Bundrage says he is quicker and more confident post ACL surgery and if he is able to stay healthy, he has a NFL future," Brugler wrote. The Iowa State prospect had a productive sophomore year recording 48 catches and nine touchdowns. However, he ended up tearing his ACL in the Cylcones opener and missed the 2014 season. The 6-foot-2, 192-pound Bundrage has the ideal size and athleticism evaluators look for at the next level, and can cause mismatches against smaller defenders.

Browns signed Iowa State TE E.J. Bibbs.

Bibbs (6'2/258) caught 84 balls for 844 yards (10.0 YPR) and ten TDs in two seasons at Iowa State after transferring from JUCO. He earned first-team All-Big 12 from the conference's coaches as a senior. After undergoing a post-season knee cleanup, Bibbs managed a 4.86 forty, 9-foot-2 broad jump, and 31 1/2-inch vertical at the Cyclones' Pro Day. A squatty, short-armed tight end who will be 24 years old as a rookie, Bibbs would do well to hang on as an NFL backup.
May 4 - 8:45 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes Iowa State TE E.J. Bibbs will be an undrafted free agent after his mediocre pro day workout.

Bibbs clocked a slow 4.86 second 40-yard dash at the event. "Big 12 observers would tell you Bibbs was one of the few bright spots for Cyclones the past few years," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "Although a little smaller than some would like, he displayed a knack for catching and running, and even could move to fullback in the NFL based on his skill set." Bengals' tight end coach John Hayes attended the event and spent about 30 minutes working the white board and interviewing the TE prospect after the event.

Dismissed Iowa State DL David Irving will visit the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks

The report comes from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, who adds that Irving has already worked out for the Chicago Bears, Chiefs, New England Patriots, New York Giants, Raiders and Seahawks. Irving has a 4.84 second forty, a 38-inch vertical leap, a 10-8 broad jump, a 4.53 short shuttle and a 7.27 three-cone drill. The 6-foot-7, 273-pounder was dismissed last year after getting charged with fifth-degree theft, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

Bengals' tight end coach John Hayes attended the pro day of Iowa State TE E.J. Bibbs and spent about 30 minutes working the white board and interviewing the prospect after the event.

Something to file away for Day 3, Bengals fans. "Bibbs ran crisp routes, and everyone in attendance agreed he caught the ball very well," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline. The 6-foot-3, 261-pounder ran the 40 in the low 4.8s on Tuesday, with a short shuttle time of 4.25 and a 3-cone of 7.22.

Iowa State dismissed senior DL David Irving worked out for the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks.

The ex-Iowa State prospect was dismissed from the program and did not play in 2014, as he was charged with fifth-degree theft, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief in connection with a student riot back in April. In 2013, Irving was also arrested on a domestic assault charge against his girlfriend. It will be interesting to see which team, if any, rolls the dice in the draft on Irving. Brandt notes that Irving "had a good workout, went through some bag drills, and is a potential sleeper prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft."

Iowa State dismissed P.J. Harris for a violation of unspecified team rules, reported the Ames Tribune.

The reasoning for the dismissal didn't become clear until Friday, when Harris was arrested on aggravated domestic assault/strangulation charges. "Harris was charged at 10:48 p.m. on Thursday, according to Ames arrest records," reported the paper. "The incident between Harris and the victim occurred on Thursday morning, according to Ames Cmdr. Jason Tuttle. The two got into an argument when the victim went to Harris’ apartment at 4503 Twain Circle, Apt. 306. Harris allegedly pushed the victim onto a wall, threw the victim down on a bed and strangled the victim with his hands, Tuttle said." The former three-star recruit would have entered 2015 as one of the top receivers on ISU's depth chart.

Iowa State senior C Tom Farniok accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound center is a four-year starter. He possesses a great motor, and is intense and aggressive on the field. Farniok has good mobility, though he can be bullied by massive interior defensive lineman due to a lack of upper-body strength.

Iowa State TE E.J. Bibbs will attend the Senior Bowl.

We will repeat ourselves by saying the 2015 tight end class is shaping up to be potentially the draft's weakest position, but there are a few intriguing options. Bibbs is one. He has recorded 45 receptions for 382 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
