San Diego State junior RB Donnel Pumphrey relies on "vision, lateral agility and balance that allows him to make sharp cuts and shake defenders," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound produced 1,873 yards and 20 touchdowns last season after posting 752 yards as a freshman backup. Pumphrey isn't going to move a pile, but he has reliable hands in the passing game and is a dangrous threat to take it to the house when he's given any space.

Five San Diego State players have been suspended for the first six games of the 2015 season, including redshirt senior OL Darrell Greene.

The suspensions are in response to a violation of team rules, per head coach Ricky Long. Sophomore cornerback Billy Vaughn Jr. and sophomore linebacker Fred Melifonwu, third-string sophomore cornerback Derek Babiash and sophomore fullback Parker Wells were the other four players suspended, according to Tod Leonard. Greene has started in the past for the Aztecs and could have been the replacement at tackle for Terry Poole.

Kentucky graduate Maxwell Smith will transfer to San Diego State for his final collegiate season.

Smith started 11 games during his career at Kentucky and played in 10 more. He boasts a 21 to 9 touchdown to interception ratio for his career but produced very inconsistent performances.

Colts signed San Diego State WR Ezell Ruffin.

Ruffin (6'0/218) caught 111 career passes for 1,877 yards (16.9 YPR) and five TDs as an Aztec. A good college receiver who's unlikely to translate to the pros, Ruffin has small hands (8 3/4") and is painfully short on athleticism, running 4.68 at the Combine with a lineman-like 27 1/2-inch vertical. His upside is a low-end slot receiver.

Seahawks selected San Diego State OT Terry Poole with the No. 130 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Poole (6'5/307) spent two seasons as an Aztec after transferring from community college, starting at right tackle as a junior and left tackle as a senior. He has guard arm length (33 1/4") but top-notch athleticism, running 5.09 in Indy with a 31-inch vertical and 9-foot-3 broad jump. Poole needs work, but his size-movement combination suggests he could eventually push to start in a zone scheme.

San Diego State WR Ezell Ruffin (collarbone) worked out last week for the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts.

Ruffin conducted the individual workout on the SDSU campus. Weighing in at 216 pounds, Ruffin ran a 4.60 40 (besting his 4.65 time from the combine) logged a 31.5-inch vertical jump (27.5) and 9-1 broad. He also clocked a 4.38 in the short shuttle (4.59) and a 6.86 in the 3-cone (7.35 combine). Ruffin is agile, but his overall athletic skill set may not be enough to hang in the NFL long-term.

San Diego State T Terry Poole will visit the Eagles, according to Bo Marchionte.

The report includes Poole has been worked out by the Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals. Poole accepted an invitation to the East West Shrine Game and tested like an average athlete at the NFL Combine. He played left tackle during his final season at SD State.

San Diego State WR Ezell Ruffin didn't participate in the school's pro day and will instead work out for NFL scouts on April 10, reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Pauline didn't pass along why this was the case, and we also haven't seen any news stories discussing Ruffin's reasoning, but it might have to do with a broken collarbone he suffered with throughout the 2014 season. Ruffin caught only 26 passes for 422 yards and two scores last year. He's a depth receiver at the next level, a smart player who gives maximum efforts that might struggle to separate from NFL corners.

The Seahawks are interested in San Diego State senior OT Terry Poole, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Poole started slowly at Shrine practice in St Petersburg but by Thursday he was one of the better blockers on the field," Pauline wrote. Poole shifted to the blind side this year after starting 12 games at right tackle in 2013. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Poole came into this season graded by Pauline as a UDFA, but he improved his standing during the regular season and at the East-West Shrine Game.
Jan 26 - 5:36 PM

San Diego State redshirt senior WR Ezell Ruffin accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Ruffin is athletic and has strong hands. He would be a good fit as a slot receiver at the next level. Ruffin was on the shelf for five weeks earlier this season with a collarbone injury. Since his return, he's put on a show. According to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Ruffin is a mid-round prospect with "the potential to develop into a third receiver at the next level."

San Diego State senior OT Terry Poole accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Poole shifted to the blind side this year after starting 12 games at right tackle in 2013. He was an honorable-mention all-Mountain West performer last year. Though the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Poole came into this season graded by TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline as a UDFA, he could catch evaluator's eyes during the post-season evaluation period.

San Diego State redshirt senior WR Ezell Ruffin "has really turned it on since returning from the broken collarbone which sidelined him for five weeks," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes.

According to the analyst, Ruffin entered the season stamped as a mid-round pick by scouts. "Well built with deceptive speed, the senior posted a season best 7 receptions for 126-yards during the win over Air Force," Pauline wrote. "Sneaky fast, Ruffin in averaging just under 20-yards per reception the past three games. He’s a legitimate middle round choice with the potential to develop into a third receiver at the next level." The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Ruffin is athletic and has strong hands; he would be a good fit as a slot receiver at the next level.

San Diego State senior QB Quinn Kaehler will miss the school's game against New Mexico with a shoulder sprain.

Kaehler missed the last contest with the same injury. Freshman Nick Bawden will start in his place, despite beat writer Tod Leonard calling his effort against Fresno State "fairly poor."

San Diego State senior QB Quinn Kaehler will miss Friday's game due to a shoulder sprain.

The injury is to Kaehler's throwing shoulder. The senior is the only quarterback the Aztecs have utilized this season, but he has not played well. In fact, Kaehler has thrown six interceptions to two touchdowns while completing less than 60 percent of his passes.

San Diego State redshirt junior OG Darrell Greene "really caught" Tony Pauline's eye on film.

"He’s big, strong and mobile," Pauline wrote. "Greene handles opponents at the point of attack while also displaying a lot of skill blocking in motion." Pauline grades the fourth-year junior as a Round 5 prospect heading into the season. The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder is listed as the starting right guard heading into the 2014 season.
