TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin was compared by NFL Media to Russell Wilson.

"As is typical for a college quarterback with his athleticism, Boykin doesn't hesitate to tuck the ball and do his damage on the ground when given the chance," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "Wilson, of course, scrambles more to throw. But if Boykin reaches the pros, he'll take on more of a sense of self-preservation in time." The 6-foot-2 Boykin is a bit bigger than the 5-foot-11 Wilson, though TCU has perhaps tacked an inch onto Boykin's measurements. The TCU prospect threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014.

Former Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill made his transfer to TCU official.

Hill will begin classes on June 1. The former Aggie starter will sit out the 2015 season due to NCAA regulations, but could be the heir apparent to Trevone Boykin during his final season of collegiate play. Hill was off to a quick start last year, but was replaced as the starter and was suspended shortly afterward for two games.

NFL Media ranks TCU redshirt senior Trevone Boykin as their No.1 returning offensive player for 2015.

"He's the preseason favorite for the Heisman Trophy, and the reason TCU is poised to win the Big 12," NFL.com's Chase Goodbread wrote. The TCU prospect was quite productive for the Frogs, throwing for 3,901 yards with 707 yards on the ground, while accounting for 41 touchdowns in 2014. There is no reason Boykin shouldn't be able to produce another impressive season.

NFL.com's Mike Huguenin has TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin ranked as his No.1 Heisman Trophy candidate for 2015.

"Boykin was fourth in the Heisman voting last year and is the highest finisher to return to school. He also plays for a team that should be in the top five all season, which always helps when it comes to getting Heisman votes," Huguenin wrote. The TCU prospect threw for for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns, while running for 642 yards and eight more scores on the ground in 2014. If he can put together another dominant season in 2015, there's potential for a Heisman Trophy and a shot to go in the first-round of the 2016 draft.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson suffered a broken hand during spring practice.

Doctson likely already underwent surgery to speed up the healing process. "Josh had had good practices. But you can’t catch with a cast on your hand," head coach Gary Patterson said. Doctson and Trevone Boykin combine for one of the best quarterback/receiver tandems in the country. Doctson reminds us a bit of DeVante Parker, in that he elevates and floats to win in contested situations.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin underwent minor wrist surgery on his non-throwing hand last month.

Boykin played with the injury last season. Perhaps no quarterback improved more last season than Boykin. he displayed the ability to win inside and outside of structure and has an arm to his throws at every level of the field. If his accuracy and movement become more refined, watch out.

TCU coach Gary Patterson compared TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee's versatility and precision in running routes to Odell Beckham Jr.

"Patterson is obviously expecting big things from Listenbee, who was given a shot to star in the spring after an injury to vertical threat Josh Doctson," ESPN's Travis Haney wrote. "With experience at every position on offense, Patterson hinted that co-OCs Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie will be able to implement additional formations and ideas in the second year of the spread at TCU. Expect Listenbee to be a huge part of that next chapter." The analyst named Listenbee the No. 2 breakout candidate in the nation. At last year's Big 12 Championships, Listenbee ranked fifth in the 100 meters and finished fourth in the 200 meters. He's arguably the fastest player in the country.

ESPN's Todd McShay praised the Bengals for taking TCU OLB Paul Dawson No. 99 overall.

"While he isn't a great athlete, he is a big-time playmaker who represents a good value in the third round," McShay wrote. "He projects as a 4-3 weakside linebacker in the Bengals' scheme and should have an impact early." As you know, we also loved the pick. Dawson arguably has late-round-one ability and he shouldn't have slipped out of Round 2. Acquiring him with the last pick of Day 2 is value personified.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin needs to show "more consistency and accuracy" to be a first round prospect, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Boykin is going to be a hotly debated prospect. I need to see more consistency and accuracy before he makes my 1st round," Brugler tweeted. In his first full year as TCU's starting quarterback, he finished fourth in the Heisman voting after putting up 3,714 yards passing and 30 TD passes. If the TCU prospect can refine his game, he has a shot to be a first-round prospect, as well as, a potential Heisman Trophy winner.

Falcons signed TCU CB Kevin White.

White (5'9/183) made 40 starts as a Horned Frog, tallying six career INTs and three forced fumbles. A second-team All-Big 12 pick by the conference's coaches, White's shining senior-year moment was holding namesake Kevin White of West Virginia to a 3-28-0 receiving line in November. TCU's White is short on size and speed (4.63), and lacks the quickness required to excel at slot corner. He was a good college corner who will likely struggle to transition.
May 3 - 9:44 PM

Bears selected TCU OG Tayo Fabuluje with the No. 183 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Fabuluje (6'6/353) bounced from BYU to TCU, where he quit football as a junior before returning for a second-team All-Big 12 selection as a senior. Redshirts, transfers, and time away have sidelined Fabuluje for three of the last five seasons. It's fair to question Fabuluje's passion for the game, and the fact that he managed 16 bench-press reps at the Combine sent up another red flag. Still, Fabuluje is a gargantuan human with 34-inch arms and quick feet for a big man. He could grow into an NFL starting guard if he sheds some fat and hits the weights.
May 2 - 4:20 PM

Bengals selected TCU OLB Paul Dawson with the No. 99 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Dawson (6'0/235) was a tackle machine in Gary Patterson's defense, recording 38 career TFLs as a two-year starter. He was Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. Although Dawson was a dominant college defender, he earned a reputation for persistent tardiness at TCU, and is a poor athlete, running 4.93 with a 28-inch vertical and 9-foot-1 broad jump. Dawson's best NFL fit may be in an Larry Foote-type role where he's protected by a nose tackle and isn't asked to play in coverage. Otherwise, he'll have to become a big-time special teamer to last in the pros.

One scout passes along that TCU HC Gary Patterson "really likes" LB Paul Dawson despite the prospect's tardiness while in school.

"You've got to be disciplined to play for Gary Patterson, who's probably the best defensive coach in the country," the scout said. "Gary really likes this guy, and Gary doesn't say very many nice things about people." Dawson has even admitted to immaturity and tardiness during his time at TCU. Each scout polled by McGinn brought up Dawson's "instinctive" style. "It's like he reads every play before it happens," another said. Dawson will likely end up in the late second or third round.

TCU LB Paul Dawson's "instincts and production are off the charts, and are untouchable by any linebacker in this draft," notes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

Dawson's evaluation comes with reservations. He was frequently late for meetings in school and didn't always get along with his position coach. His combine performance was also amongst the worst showings of any player in this class. That said, we're smitten with him, as is Zierlein. "Dawson's production and instincts are first-round worthy, but he must prove he's fast enough for the NFL game or he'll be just another guy as a pro," the analyst wrote. Dawson had 136 tackles, 20 TFL, six sacks, three fumbles recovered, four interceptions and nine passes defensed in 29 targets last year. Those numbers are silly. Dawson has visited the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs and has had private workouts for the Bucs and Atlanta Falcons.

The Denver Broncos have been linked to Paul Dawson of TCU and Benardrick McKinney of Mississippi State to fill their LB vacancy, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"It must be mentioned the team has not shown a lot of interest in Dawson via the visit/workout route," Pauline added. Dawson has visited the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs and has had private workouts for the Bucs and Atlanta Falcons. He had 136 tackles, 20 TFL, and four interceptions last year.
