New Mexico State redshirt junior WR Royce Caldwell has moved to running back.

Caldwell (5'8/175) is looking to get back into the good graces of HC Doug Martin and staff after being ruled academically ineligible for the 2017 season. Not only has he struggled in the classroom, he sustained a broken leg which cut short his 2016 season. But hope springs eternal, and the speedy Caldwell has an opportunity to push for carries now that he's transitioned over to running back. With Larry Rose III no longer on roster, he has an opportunity to impress in competition with Jason Huntley this summer.

Scout Inc's Steve Muench lists New Mexico State RB Larry Rose III as a potential late-round sleeper.

Rose was a dual-threat at New Mexico State, and while his latter two years didn't match the production in the first two, that has more to do with the fact that the Aggies had actual other weapons other than the tailback. "Rose has the speed to bounce between gaps and make defenders miss. He's quick to and through the hole, plus he has the speed -- he ran a 4.42 40 at his pro day -- to rip off chunk yards when he gets a seam," writes Rose. "Although he's a small target with small hands, he's a productive receiver who caught 55 passes last year." Expect to see Rose either get drafted in the final two rounds, or perhaps sign as a priority free agent.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares NMSU WR Jaleel Scott to Detroit Lion WR Kenny Golladay.

Scott was one of the key pieces in helping New Mexico State reach a bowl game for the first time in a long time, and the 6-foot-4, 218-pound wideout could have a bright NFL future. Zierlein list of his strengths include his catch radius and ability to absorb contact, but notes that he'll have to improve his routes and doesn't possess ideal quickness. Still, with this size and production, you should expect Scott to go on Day 3, and he could sneak into Day 2 if a team falls in love.

New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Scott's time ranks middle of the pack, but the 6-foot-4, 218-pound wideout was able to make an impact in athletic tests with a 124-inch broad jump. Considering his size, that's a solid 40-yard dash time as well, and his struggles in the shuttles are in line with other larger receivers. Scott currently projects as an early Day 3 selection, with NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein comparing him to Detroit Lions wideout Kenny Golladay.

New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott measured 6-foot-4 6/8 inches and 218 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Scott came up just short of 6-foot-5, but he's a tall, well-built receiver regardless. His hand and wingspan measurements were remarkable. On the former front? An even 10 inches. On the latter front? 81 2/8 inches. Scott landed on the highlight reel a number of times in 2017 thanks to an array of circus catches utilizing that absurd length to its utmost. We don't expect him to light up athletic testing this weekend, though. He is a bit slow to get going and lacks more than above-average top-end speed. Scott profiles as a likely Day 3 selection for April.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott to Lions WR Kenny Golladay.

Zierlein projects Scott (6'5, 215) to go anywhere from the fourth-to-fifth round and considers him an "ascending prospect." Going more in-depth, "Scott saw both his production and confidence explode in 2017 and consistently found ways to win once the ball was in the air. Scott doesn't have the quickness to win underneath, but he does use stride length and hand fighting to create space for himself as a downfield threat." Scott is likely to be viewed as a backup with upside that will have to fight his way into a WR3 role on an NFL roster.

New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Johnathan Boone (undisclosed) will not participate in spring practice.

Boone (6'3/185) underwent surgery to repair an injury of undisclosed origin after the end of the 2017 campaign. In 12 games last season, he registered a 31-399-1 receiving line. Just when Boone will be healthy enough to take part in team activities is not clear at this juncture.

New Mexico State defending the signing of former Minnesota CB Ray Buford, who had been expelled from the Gophers allegations of sexual assault.

"It started in October when we handed all of the information we had to the administration and everyone involved in making that decision," Martin said. "Football did not make the decision. We just brought it to them and said (Buford) is a young man who we believe deserves a second chance and you guys (NMSU administrators) tell us what you want us to do." Buford was accused of sexual assault along with three other Gophers in 2016, and was recommended for expulsion before he decided to leave on his own accord. He played one year at Independence Community College in Kansas, and now joins the Aggies' defensive backfield.

New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 26-20 overtime win over Utah State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

Scott (6'6/215) was largely a non-factor in the game, at least until midway through the fourth quarter, when he brought in an 11-yard pass in the end zone on a beautiful twisting catch that looked so unreal that it was initially called incomplete. This play encapsulates what we love about Scott, one of our favorite deep cuts for the draft. He plays with impeccable body control and offers a similar game to that of Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery. He'll next be showcasing his wares at the Senior Bowl.

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers completed 29-of-54 passes for 191 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Friday's 26-20 overtime win over Utah State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

Not the crispest of games for Rogers, nor the New Mexico State offense in general. They punted 11 times in the contest. The senior wraps his career in fantastic fashion despite Friday's rocky affair, posting career bests in terms of passing yardage (3,825), completion percentage (62.3) and yards per attempt (7.5) He also posted a 27/18 TD/INT ratio. The interceptions pop off the page, particularly in comparison to the other strides he has made as a passer. Turnovers proved to be an issue throughout Rogers' time at New Mexico State. He threw 54 of them for his career.

New Mexico State senior RB Larry Rose III rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries while catching six passes for 48 yards in Friday's 26-20 overtime win over Utah State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

Rose (5'11/195) began his career at New Mexico State in explosive fashion, racking up 2,759 yards on the ground through his first two seasons. He hasn't been able to match the early heights in the two campaigns since, rushing for 865 yards a year ago in a slow-to-start season which saw him recovering him from sports hernia surgery and 924 yards this year. He finished out in thrilling enough fashion, at least, scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime on Friday via a nice little run to the left which saw him move patiently before cutting upfield for a 21-yard score to end the game. Rose has a nice amount of shiftiness to his game and could find a fit at the NFL level with a team that tends to run zone schemes, though it could be an uphill climb to hit the later rounds of Day 3. Draft Analyst currently views him as a likely undrafted free agent.

New Mexico State senior RB Larry Rose III snagged nine passes for 95 yards and ran for 52 yards on 12 carries in a 22-17 victory over South Alabama on Saturday.

Rose (5'11/195) has been a multi-purpose back his entire career for the Aggies, but the nine catches are a season high. The senior tailback has now gone over 1,100 total yards on the season, and will get a chance to go over 1,200 when they play in a bowl game this December.

New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott hauled in nine passes for 134 yards in a 22-17 victory over South Alabama on Saturday.

Scott didn't find the end zone, but he set up every score for the Jaguars with big catches, including the game-winner with just over 30 seconds left. Scott (6'6/215) is considered one of the best senior wideouts in the country by many analysts, and his strong effort in this one will serve him well in his quest to being one of the highest drafted wide receivers in 2018. He'll get one more chance to add to his tape before the Senior Bowl, as the Aggies are going bowling.

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers (shoulder) completed 40-of-61 passes for 461 yards and two touchdowns with an interception in a 22-17 victory over South Alabama on Saturday.

Rogers was questionable with a shoulder injury, but it didn't prevent him from gripping-and-ripping against the South Alabama defense. His biggest throw of the day came with just 32 seconds left, as his seven-yard touchdown pass to Conner Cramer ended up being the winning score. New Mexico State has now qualified for a bowl game with the win.

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers (shoulder) is on track to start against South Alabama on Saturday.

Rogers initially sustained his left shoulder injury in a loss to Louisiana-Lafayette on Nov. 18. The 6-foot-3, 213-pound senior warmed up for this past weekend's game against Idaho, but did not ultimately play in the contest. Nick Jeanty started in his place. Rogers has thrown for 3,374 yards with a 24/15 TD/INT ratio on the season.
