An NFL offensive line consultant told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that he was "disappointed" in TCU T Joseph Noteboom's tape.

"I was disappointed when I finally sat down and studied him," the consultant said. "I couldn't find that one thing that I really loved about him and he looked a lot smaller than his listed weight when I watched the tape. I think he has a lot of work to do." Noteboom was one of the offensive line stars at the NFL Scouting Combine after his 4.72 second 40 and 27 bench reps, and Zierlein projects the former TCU tackle to go on Day 2. There's clear divisiveness in what type of prospect he is, however, so his draft stock could fluctuate all the way up to draft day.

The Dallas Morning News' Reece Kelley Graham tagged TCU DE Mat Boesen as one of five Horned Frogs prospects with the best chances of being drafted next week.

Graham refers to the 6-foot-4, 238-pound Boesen as a potential "great late-round steal" for the draft. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom does not view him as a draftable prospect, though, assigning him a UDFA grade while slotting him in as the No. 364 prospect in the 2019 class.

An NFC regional scout told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that TCU T Matt Pryor has the reputation for being "a little lazy."

"Talented but he's got the reputation for being a little bit lazy," the scout told Zierlein. If you knew he would keep his weight down and take the preparation seriously, I think you would have a pretty good player. You just don't know if he has that kind of football character." Zierlein compares Pryor to Ravens G Jermaine Eluemunor, and projects him to go in the middle of Day 3.

TCU received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 QB Max Duggan.

Duggan was also considering Notre Dame, Ohio State and Minnesota, among others. He ranks 291st on ESPN's list of the 300 best prospects in the class, and the third best dual-style quarterback on 247 Sports composite rankings. Reports indicate that Duggan is quick to make reads and accurate with the football, and he's an above-average runner who can make plays with his feet. This could be the future at the QB position for the Horned Frogs.

NFL Draft Scout's Dane Brugler lists TCU T Matt Pryor as one of the players who will get drafted despite not being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Brugler lists 35 players, and Pryor is the only tackle who is included. The 6-foot-6, 343-pound lineman has also played on the interior, and Brugler notes that versatility should help him come draft day(s). "His weight needs to be monitored and he tends to play tall," writes Brugler, "but he is coordinated in his shuffle with the ability to sustain blocks."

Northern Illinois redshirt senior LB Jawuan Johnson transferred to TCU as a graduate.

A clutch, clutch transfer get by Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson, here. Johnson (5'11/217) was a statistical standout for the Huskies this past season, posting 98 tackles (18.0 for loss) while serving as cause for an impressive 10 total turnovers (five interceptions, five fumbles forced). He opted for the transfer this offseason in order to be closer to his home in Dallas, Texas. Just where he'll settle on the depth chart will shake out in August camp, but he could end up being one of the more impactful transfers in the Big 12 for the coming season.

Northern Illinois redshirt senior LB Jawuan Johnson will transfer as a graduate.

Johnson (5'11/217) represents a major loss for the Huskies. He broke out in a huge way in 2017, racking up 98 tackles (18.0 for loss) while intercepting five passes -- two of which he returned for touchdowns -- and forcing five fumbles. As a graduate transfer, Johnson will be eligible to play immediately with his program-to-be in 2018. As for which schools to keep an eye on for this move, he indicated that he's looking at the likes of Baylor, TCU and SMU. Johnson would like to move closer to his home in Dallas.

Uncommitted four-star 2019 QB Max Duggan will visit Notre Dame and Ohio State this week.

Duggan (6'2/192) is additionally kicking around potential spring trips to Minnesota and TCU. He could potentially make a commitment as early as April. Slipping into the ESPN300 at No. 291, Duggan is an accurate quarterback who has shown a sharp awareness of pressure in the pocket. He does not, however, possess an elite-level arm.

TCU T Joseph Noteboom ran the 40-yard dash in 4.72 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Noteboom (6'5/319) put up the fourth-fastest 40 time among all offensive lineman. He performed well in other tests, racking up 27 reps in the bench press. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein is interested by Noteboom and projects him to be selected in Round 3 of the NFL draft. An NFL offensive line consultant didn't share the same excitement and said, "I was disappointed when I finally sat down and studied him. I couldn't find that one thing that I really loved about him and he looked a lot smaller than his listed weight when I watched the tape. I think he has a lot of work to do." After performing well at the combine Noteboom has helped his draft stock.

TCU RB Kyle Hicks ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Hicks (5'10/210) did show out decently in his jumps, notching 36.5 inches vertically and 122 inches broad, but he showed almost no juice in his 40-yard dash attempts. He underwhelmed during the 2017 season and it's looking like the same ol' story in Indianapolis. We don't view him as a draftable prospect.

TCU four-star 2018 QB signee Justin Rogers is listed as the best fit among Big-12 signings by Rivals.com National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell

Rogers suffered a torn ACL near the beginning of September, so he may not be able to participate in camp is still very much up in the air. The long-term prognosis is the appeal here, as the 6-foot-4, 180-pound signal caller's strong arm and ability to keep the play alive with his legs will fit well in the TCU offense. If he has a clean bill of health, he could challenge for the starting job with the Horned Frogs at some point in 2018.

TCU signed four-star 2018 WR Tevailance Hunt.

Hunt (6'1/185) was committed to Kansas for a stretch last summer before backing off that pledge in July. He's not the fastest of wideouts, but offers up plenty of quickness and is particularly sharp in terms of his routes. That route-running prowess is key to his creating separation given that he lacks the wheels to simply run past the field. On the ESPN 300, Hunt checks in at No. 277 overall.

TCU signed three-star 2018 JUCO sophomore TE Pro Wells.

Wells (6'5/230) signed on with Marshall as part of their 2016 class, but never played a down with the Thundering Herd. He spent the 2016 season with preparatory school Milford Academy before linking up with JUCO outfit Northwest Mississippi for the 2017 season. On the ESPN JC50, Wells lands at No. 44 overall for the 2018 cycle.
Feb 8 - 3:24 PM

Football Scoop reports that TCU has hired Mountain Pointe (AZ) DC Brian Hernandez to serve as a defensive analyst.

Hernandez has experience coaching on both sides of the ball, having earlier spent two years as offensive coordinator for JUCO outfit Pima Community College. This gig in Fort Worth will be his first with an FBS team, albeit in an off-field capacity.

TCU received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 LB Jacoby Simpson.

Simpson (6'1/220) had been an Arizona State pledge up until the program cut ties with HC Todd Graham at the end of the most recent campaign. He then proceeded to reopen his recruitment. Texas Tech was also vying for his commitment after he backed off the Sun Devils, but it's fellow Big 12 combatant TCU which emerges victorious. The Horned Frogs are up to 21 commitments for their 2018 class and on the Rivals team rankings board, they sit at No. 24. Their class is the second highest-rated in the conference, but still trails No. 6 Oklahoma by a significant margin heading into National Signing Day.
