San Diego State senior CB Damontae Kazee projects as a mid-round pick, according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

Kazee nearly declared for the NFL Draft last year. "He's a ball hawk playing in a zone-heavy scheme," McShay wrote. Kazee has seven picks this year and 17 over his career. In 2015, he finished No. 11 nationally among cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' grades.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 27-24 win over Wyoming in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Pumphrey and backfield buddy Rashaad Penny both surpassed 100 yards rushing in this one, with Penny actually leading the Aztecs with his 117 yards. As a team, San Diego State rushed for 242 yards and three touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Pumphrey looked absolutely unstoppable for much of the season, but had been held under 100 yards rushing in each of his last two games prior to breaking out of his mini-slump on Saturday. San Diego State has now won back-to-back Mountain West titles. A year ago, they defeated Air Force to earn conference bragging rights.
Dec 3 - 11:37 PM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for just 53 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in the school's 63-31 loss to Colorado State.

Pumphrey added a catch for eight yards. This was absolutely a season low for a running back who was pushing the NCAA record books in terms of rushing yards. The Aztecs are bowl eligible, and Pumphrey will definitely surface at an all star event, likely the Senior Bowl.
Nov 27 - 8:41 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 76 yards on 17 carries in Saturday's 34-33 loss to Wyoming.

Rare is the day that Mr. Pumphrey is held under the century mark. It has happened just one other time during the 2016 campaign, when he went for 98 yards against New Hampshire in the season-opener (he also scored four touchdowns in that one, so there you go). Having now rushed for 1,855 yards, Pumphrey will need 145 against Colorado State next weekend to reach 2,000 on the season.

San Diego State RB Donnel Pumphrey has earned a Senior Bowl invitation.

On the season, Pumphrey has rushed for 1,581 yards and 13 touchdowns with three regular season games remaining. Pumphrey will certainly produce his third straight 1,600-plus rushing yard season and possible third straight 2,000-plus total yard season in a row. The west coaster has already passed notable names on the all time rushing list, including Herschel Walker back in October. The running back class looks to be an awesome one this spring.
Nov 9 - 11:46 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 112 yards on 21 carries in Saturday's 55-0 win over Hawaii.

At least part of Pumphrey's librarian-approved evening was due to the fact that this was never really a contest at all. The Aztecs led 14-0 after one quarter and 27-0 at the half, eliminating the need for a true Pumhrey supernova. As is, this was the 5-foot-9, 180-pounder's second-lowest yardage output of the season and his lowest mark since he went for 98 yards against New Hampshire in the season-opener. For the season as a whole, the stalwart senior has rushed for 1,581 yards and 13 touchdowns. He will finish November with regular-season contests against Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado State to try to close out what is tracking toward a 2,000-yard campaign.
Nov 6 - 10:04 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 223 yards on 32 carries in Friday's 40-13 win over Utah State.

Alas, Pumphrey failed to score a touchdown in the game. He had found the end zone in each of the Aztecs' first seven games prior to Friday's affair. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound senior impressed even without a score, averaging 7.0 YPC with a long run of 44 yards. His 2016 season has been nothing short of bonkers (that is the official analytic designation), as Pumphrey has surpassed 200 yards rushing in four of eight games and has been held under 100 just once. It all adds up to 1,469 yards and 13 touchdowns. The stretch run for his 2,000-yard quest consists of dates with (sequentially) Hawaii, Nevada, Wyoming and Colorado State. Both Hawaii and Nevada currently house bottom-seven run defenses.
Oct 28 - 11:27 PM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries in Friday's 42-3 win over San Jose State.

With his two scores, Pumphrey topped Marshall Faulk's school record for touchdowns in an Aztec career. That his 135 yards rushing represented his second lowest total of the season tells you just how brilliant Pumphrey has been in 2016. The 5-foot-9 has surpassed 100 yards rushing in every game but one and has recorded three contests of 220-plus yards. It all adds up to 1,246 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. San Diego State still has another five games left on the regular season schedule.
Oct 22 - 1:54 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey passed Herschel Walker on the all-time FBS rushing list.

Some might point to Pumphrey being in his fourth year while Walker only played three seasons of college ball, but Walker was allowed 994 carries to reach 5,259 yards, while Pumphrey needed 877 carries to get to 5,383 yards... and he is still going. Some might wonder what Pumphrey's NFL position will be, as he and Walker could not be more different from a frame standpoint. At the very least, Pumphrey can act as an air back in the NFL.
Oct 15 - 9:43 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey buried Fresno State in Friday's 17-3 win, rushing for 220 yards and two touchdowns on 38 carries.

Pumphrey's 220 yards rushing outpaced the yardage total of Fresno State's entire offense. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound senior was as consistent as a finely tuned metronome in this one, averaging 5.8 YPC with a long run of 22 yards. He might not have the eyes on him of a Dalvin Cook or Leonard Fournette, but Pumphrey is as good as they come at the collegiate level. Friday's contest was his third of at least 200 yards rushing through six games. For the season as a whole, he has racked up 1,113 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns. At this point, it is a legitimate possibility that Pumphrey might be able to surpass 2,000 yards rushing when all is said and done.
Oct 15 - 1:09 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper rates San Diego State senior G Nico Siragusa "as a late Day 2, early Day 3 guy," but notes that the prospect "could rise."

The 6-foot-3, 325-pound Siragusa has opened holes for the FBS' leading rusher, Donnel Pumphrey (891 yards), this fall. "Siragusa ... is powerful at the point of attack, but his feet and ease of movement were even more impressive [against UNLV on Saturday]," Kiper wrote. "He pulled and got out in space several times, and he was rarely on the ground. San Diego State passed only 15 times, but Siragusa showed a nice anchor in pass protection." Siragusa has started 33 games in his career.

San Diego State senior LB Calvin Munson is "the type of prospect that will go have a ten year career in the NFL," believes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Scouts stamped Munson as a UDFA but off the 2015 film I gave him a 6th round grade and thus far he’s not disappointed me," Pauline wrote. "He’s an attack linebacker that shows great run stopping prowess besides selling out on the blitz." The analyst sees Munson as "a terrific late round pick as a reserve linebacker/special teams player." Munson leads the Aztecs in tackles -- with just under 10.0 per game -- as well as quarterback hurries.
Oct 12 - 12:34 PM

An NFC scout says San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey is "legit" and a "much better prospect that Ronnie Hillman" when Hillman was coming out.

Hillman was a third-round pick coming out of San Diego State in 2012. The scout did express concerns about the 5-foot-9, 170-pound Pumphrey's "ultra-confident demeanor because it can come across as arrogant," passed along Bucky Brooks, "but he believes the SDSU star has the tools to be an electric change-of-pace back at the next level." Brooks himself thinks Pumphrey has "enough wiggle to develop into a dangerous third-down back in a pass-happy system (think New England)" and could see a team targeting Humphrey "as a borderline Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) selection on draft day." Pumphrey could set the FBS all-time rushing record this year with a huge season.

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey is on pace to set the FBS all-time rushing record.

Pumphrey is averaging close to 200 rushing yards per game this season and currently has 4,871 yards to his name. Obviously that is a difficult pace to sustain, but Pumphrey did rush for 281 yards against the Pac-12's Cal. Ron Dayne currently holds the record at 6,397 yards.

Sep 21 - 8:54 AM

San Diego State senior RB Donnel Pumphrey ran for a career-high 281 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-40 win over Cal.

It was a career night that included a ridiculous 9.7 yards per carry and the breaking of Marshall Faulk's career rushing record at San Diego State. "This is definitely a major memory for me, just to be able to do this with my teammates, my family here, coaching staff and athletic department here, it's just unreal," Pumphrey said. Pumphrey is the FBS' active leader in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and 100-yard games. As for the Aztecs, they extended their winning streak to 12 games.
