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.
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 08:02:00 PM

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.
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 08:44:00 PM

New Mexico State redshirt senior WR Jaleel Scott caught eight passes for 77 yards in Saturday's 17-10 win over Idaho.

Scott (6'6/215) wraps the current campaign the owner of a 64-908-8 receiving line. He's a sleeper candidate to watch for next spring's draft, with Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline comparing Scott to Alshon Jeffery earlier this month.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 09:01:00 PM

New Mexico State senior RB Larry Rose III rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in Saturday's 17-10 win over Idaho.

Rose (5'11/195) scored both of his touchdowns in the first quarter to provide the bulk of New Mexico State's offense on the afternoon. The senior stalwart has had himself an up-and-down campaign, but mostly down -- Saturday's 100-yard performance was just his second of the season. He opened his career with the Aggies posting back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns, but failed to hit that mark in either of the last two seasons. He'll be on to the NFL Draft now that the season's in the books for New Mexico State.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 08:55:00 PM

New Mexico State redshirt junior QB Nick Jeanty started Saturday's game against Idaho.

Jeanty drew the start in place of Tyler Rogers, who is dealing with a shoulder injury sustained last weekend against UL-Lafayette. In extremely limited action, the 6-foot-2, 204-pounder had thrown for 158 yards with a 1/3 TD/INT ratio entering the weekend.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 04:41:00 PM

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers (shoulder) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Idaho.

The report also notes that every quarterback is warming up at this point, so while it's a positive sign that he could be able to play, it is far from a guarantee he'll start for the Aggies. if he doesn't get the call, the Aggies will likely go with Nick Jeanty.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 03:50:00 PM

New Mexico State senior QB Tyler Rogers (shoulder) suffered an apparent left shoulder injury in Saturday's game at Louisiana-Lafayette, and he was replaced by junior QB Nick Jeanty.

Rogers completed 17-of-24 passes for 184 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. Jeanty was 15-of-20 for 129 yards, but he also tossed three interceptions. It's uncertain if Rogers is dealing with a serious injury or if he'll be ready to face Idaho next Saturday. The Aggies need wins against the Vandals and South Alabama in the final two games to be eligible for a bowl game.
