New Mexico State WR Austin Franklin had a pre-draft visit with the Giants.

Franklin surprisingly declared early for the draft after the 2013 campaign, perhaps a foolish decision considering how incredibly deep this WR class is. The 5-foot-11, 189-pounder collected 160 receptions for 2,439 yards and 19 touchdowns over his three-year career. Franklin ran a 4.56 second forty at the combine.

New Mexico State junior WR Austin Franklin has declared for the NFL Draft.

The junior caught 52 passes for 670 yards and seven touchdowns this season. Franklin apparently did not consult his head coach, Doug Martin, on the decision. "The Dallas, Texas native has shown ability to be a possible professional prospect: strong and physical, Franklin was moved around throughout the formation in 2013 and displayed his penchant as a play maker," beat writer Teddy Feinberg writes.

Jaguars selected New Mexico State CB Jeremy Harris with the No. 208 overall pick.

Harris (6-foot-2 3/8, 181) has plus length for Jacksonville's new press-man scheme, but he's going to have to get stronger to take on NFL receivers. He did play for new Jags DBs coach DeWayne Walker in college, which will help Harris' chances of earning a roster spot. Harris ran 4.48 at his Pro Day with a 36 1/2-inch vertical. He was a 2012 first-team All-WAC pick by the conference's coaches.

New Mexico State CB Jeremy Harris visited the Colts on Wednesday.

"Harris has had several official visits following a strong campus Pro Day workout," per Ravens beat writer Aaron Wilson. The unknown corner has a long frame, standing 6'2/181 pounds, and ran a 4.48 forty. teams seem to be favoring taller and longer corners in order to match up with receivers at the catch point.

Akeelie Mustafa could give the Aggies a much-needed boost in the running game.

The Aggies were 89th nationally in rushing offense last season and Mustafa is a shifty runner that could help boost that standing. An Arizona State recruit, Mustafa's only post-high school playing experience was at the JC level in 2010. At least as far as this spring is concerned, he is making a nice adjustment to the FBS level.

Receiver Taveon Rogers had season-high 203 yards and 2 touchdowns in a loss to Nevada Saturday.

Rogers reached 203 yards on only 7 receptions for an average of 29 yards per catch. The senior has had two straight good games, grabbing 2 TDs on each of his last two Saturdays. Rogers now has 31 receptions and 8 touchdowns for New Mexico State this season.

Kenny Turner ran for a career-high 171 yards on 29 carries and 1 touchdown en route to a 31-24 victory over Idaho on Saturday.

After only getting 9 attempts in the first three games, Turner has ripped-off three straight 100 yard-games. He has fully taken on the role of number one back, leading the Aggies with 461 rushing yards and 3 TDs. Turner will attempt to keep the 100-yard and scoring streak alive this week against Hawaii.

New Mexico State running backs Seth Smith and Kenny Turner were stellar despite the Aggies losing to conference foe Fresno State.  Smith led the ground game with 91 yards on just 11 carries while Turner chipped in another 79 yards and a touchdown on 15 rushes.  Turner also led the team in receiving with three catches for 61 yards.

Due to the ineffectiveness of the offense, neither is a fantasy option, unless the situation is just right.

New Mexico State senior running back Seth Smith carried the ball 16 times for 52 yards and a score in the loss to Kansas.

The 16 carries is the important stuff; he'll not be running against defenses that have the same level of talent as Kansas for much of the season.

New Mexico State running back coach Shaun Johnson is looking to build off of an already established foundation in the Aggies' backfield.  That foundation is returning 1,000-yard rusher Seth Smith and Johnson is is looking to see Smith reach 1,500 yards in 2010.

Smith was a surprise workhorse for the Aggies and is someone to keep an eye on.  The Aggies are committed to the run so expect an increase in yards and a definite increase over the lone rushing touchdown from Smith last year.  Smith is a sleeper pick in deeper leagues and in all-WAC leagues.

UTEP wide receiver LaVorick Williams caught two passes for 45 yards in Saturday's scrimmage. 

These are not huge numbers, but Williams will be one to monitor. About this time two years ago Williams impressed as a freshman while at New Mexico State. He had a relatively nondescript first year, coach Hal Mumme was canned, and then Williams went to El Paso. He sat out last year, and now he's ready to resume his career. While he's not one to draft, he possesses the speed and size that could make him interesting.

New Mexico State running back Seth Smith rushed 19 times for 104 yards against Fresno State.

Smith was kept out of the endzone again, and only has one touchdown on the season.  He is up to 598 yards though, and you could find worse plug ins if you are hurting at running back.

New Mexico State running back Seth Smith carried 31 times for 113 yards Saturday as the Aggies upended New Mexico 20-17 on the road.

Smith broke the 100 yard rushing mark for the second time in four games and could continue to be a solid statistical play against WAC opponents.  He has yet to reach the end zone, however.

ESPN blogger Graham Watson lists New Mexico State running back Tonny Glynn as one of her top movers and shakers this spring.

The Aggies are going to run the ball and run it a lot in 2009, but Glynn is not alone in the backfield. Glynn, Marquell Colston and Seth Smith will likely split carries this fall.

New Mexico State tight end Kyle Nelson concluded a very nice spring with five catches for 35 yards in the spring game this past weekend.

We've alluded to Nelson's increased role in new coach DeWayne Walker's offense this spring, and all signs continue to point to this junior having a serious impact in the passing game this fall.
