NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Texas Christian WR Josh Doctson to a slower Justin Hunter.

Hunter posted a 4.44-second 40 at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, while Doctson is expected to check in somewhere in the 4.5s. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Doctson's game isn't predicated on speed, but he separates fairly easily and is a leaper who doesn't lose often on jump balls.

TCU signed WR Ryan Parker, ESPN's No. 6 JUCO transfer in the country.

For a team looking to immediately replace Josh Doctson's usage and remain a contender, Parker's addition was an absolute coup. "Can be difficult to tackle and defend due to his size/strength combo," noted ESPN. "His value as a red zone weapon is very good. He is decisive and attacks alignment. Will stab out of the break, but may never create a huge window against top level DBs. Wide catch radius and size make for a big target even against tight coverage. Is a galloper and builds to top speed. Climbs the ladder with a long stride. Top end speed is competitive when he tops out. Initial quickness is very good." The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder originally signed with TCU back in 2014. He spent a few years at the JUCO level instead and committed to Oklahoma in April 2015 before deciding to circle back to the Frogs. 247Sports saw him as the No. 9 JUCO prospect in this class.

TCU RB Aaron Green did not receive an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Green played in both the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and the Senior Bowl, but the combine won't be in his future. CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler deemed the 5-foot-11, 205-pound TCU product "a possible later round pick." Wrote the analyst, "Green has electric feet to juke his way out of trouble. His lack of power limits his NFL role, but with his creative athleticism in space, he deserves to be in Indianapolis."

At the NFL Combine, TCU QB Trevone Boykin will work out with the quarterbacks.

"I’m told Boykin has been doing receiver work during his combine preparation but presently there are no plans for him to run routes or catch passes in Indianapolis or during pro-day at TCU," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who brought us this dispatch. "Rather Boykin will workout at receiver as teams come to campus to individually test Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee." We're hoping Boykin's stubbornness (seen another way, his conviction) won't cost him a potential NFL career. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reported last month that the Senior Bowl moved on from Boykin because he didn't agree to exclusively play wide receiver.

The NFL has banned players with convictions for domestic violence, sexual assault or weapons offenses from attending future scouting combine's in Indianapolis.

NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent sent out a league-wide memo late last month stating that prospects would be barred from "any league-related event" if they have a felony or misdemeanor conviction on their record. "It is important for us to remain strongly committed to league values as we demonstrate to our fans, future players, coaches, general managers, and others who support our game that character matters," Vincent wrote. The rule would have banned former Michigan LB Frank Clark from participating. TCU QB Trevone Boykin, who was charged with felony assault of a police officer and suspended for the Alamo Bowl, may become the rule's first target. If that happens, Boykin would still be able to attend private workouts, pro days and regional combines.

TCU signed four-star ATH Sewo Olonilua.

TCU secured a letter of intent from Kingwood, Texas, native Olonilua in the face of competition from Big 12 rival Oklahoma. The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder's done yer typical pretty-much-everything at the high school level, playing both running back and safety. Scout.com suggests that it's possible neither position actually suits him for the college level. "He could pay a hybrid type of spot between safety and linebacker once he gets to college," the outlet notes, "but with his size and speed combination he would rate highest as a projected linebacker."

TCU signed four-star DE Isaiah Chambers.

Chambers, a Houston native, received interest from Texas and Miami--visiting both schools in January--before settling on the Horned Frogs. The 6-foot-4, 258-pounder checks into the ESPN 300 at No. 167, while Scout.com ranks him No. 109. Per ESPN, he needs to improve on his consistency in anchoring. He's also a heavy hitter, though, and shows strong drive when it comes to harassing opposing quarterbacks.

The scheduled match-up between Texas and TCU for November 24 (Thanksgiving) has been moved to Friday, November 25.

The game's been moved off of Turkey Day due to the wants and needs of the NCAA's television partners. No matter. We'll all be able to work off the turkey coma together. TCU's looking to retool on the fly after losing their starting quarterback (Trevone Boykin), No. 1 wide receiver (Josh Doctson) and No. 1 running back (Aaron Green) to the draft, while Texas remains in the midst of their rebuilding project.

Three-star WR Isaiah Graham committed to TCU in October.

Arizona State, Arkansas and Cal were also in the running for Graham's services. The 6-foot-1, 179-pound wideout steps into a nice situation with the Horned Frogs. While converted RB Shaun Nixon showed his mettle in the receiving game in the absence of star receiver Josh Doctson late in the 2015 campaign, there figure to be a ton of catches to go around now that Doctson's heading to the NFL. Graham's not an elite sprinter, but offers awesome acceleration and nice top-end speed in addition to a sure set of hands. He figures to see the field early in his career.

TCU RB Aaron Green rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown on five carries in Saturday's Reese's Senior Bowl.

Green's worked double-duty in the pre-draft bowl season, as he also rushed for 38 yards on seven carries in last weekend's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. More/less identical numbers for the former Horned Frog on Saturday. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder did manage to find the end zone this time around, on a very, very nice first-quarter 25-yard effort which saw him squirming through a hole on the left side before he cut back to the right sideline on his way to glory. Green's drawbacks aren't small--he lacks the kind of breakaway speed that would help to separate him from the pack of NFL hopeful runners--but his ability to move and groove should help him in evaluations.

Four-star T Austin Myers committed to TCU in February.

We're almost a year out from Myers' initial commitment, but to this point, he hasn't budged from the Horned Frogs. Ole Miss and Houston had also been in the mix for his services. The 6-foot-5, 302-pounder played right tackle at Manvel High School, though Scout.com notes that he might be better suited for the interior of the line at the college level, as he has the size and strength to deal with bigger interior players on the defense.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reports that the Senior Bowl would have been interested in TCU QB Trevone Boykin if he had agreed to exclusively play wide receiver.

Per Davison, while Boykin's open to the idea of switching to wideout at the NFL level, he's focused on quarterbacking right now. Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage addressed the former Horned Frog dynamo's absence from the roster. "I’m not sure, I don’t want to speak for him," Savage said, "but I don’t think he’s ready to make that full-fledged switch to wide receiver." He cited that the 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete played QB in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and went on to indicate that the Senior Bowl chose to look at those committed to the position of wideout. In the aforementioned NFLPA performance, Boykin had a rough day, completing just 1-of-3 passes for six yards and an interception while rushing for 15 yards on a pair of carries.

TCU redshirt sophomore QB Kenny Hill will compete with Foster Sawyer for the 2016 starting job.

It seems like an eternity ago, but Kenny Trill was actually talked about as a Heisman contender as recently as October 2014. After his blazing start that year for Texas A&M, Mr. Trill started throwing interceptions and the Aggies yanked him for Kyle Allen, who they would go on to yank for Kyler Murray. All three, you may not be surprised to hear, have since left the program. Hill completed 67 percent of his passes with a 23/8 TD/INT ratio in 2014. Now he's front and center in the battle to replace Trevone Boykin. "Which version of Hill will we see with the Horned Frogs?" wonders ESPN's Andrea Adelson.

TCU RB Aaron Green rushed for 38 yards on seven carries in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

As tends to be the case with these kinds of games, Green didn't see a ton of carries. He did fine with his seven, though, averaging 5.4 YPC with a long run of 18 yards. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder was a consistently underrated player in the most recent incarnation of the Horned Frogs. He managed 1,272 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015. While he lacks true breakaway speed, he's demonstrated a fantastic sense of spacing and timing. In a thinner RB class, he's a potential mid-round selection.

TCU QB Trevone Boykin completed 1-of-3 passes for six yards and an interception while rushing for 15 yards on two carries in Saturday's NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Ouch. Just ouch. This was supposed to be Boykin's springboard back onto the national scene after he sat out the Alamo Bowl following an arrest, but it just didn't happen. He looked skittery in the pocket at times and just didn't flash the sort of upside that we're used to seeing from the 6-foot-2, 205-pound. Boykin's draftability--especially at quarterback--was already in question. Saturday's game didn't help much. While he's hoping to stick it out at QB, a position change is not out of the question.
