TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson "has big and reliable mitts," Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl observes.

"TCU WR Josh Doctson has big and reliable mitts (10"). Natural catching away from frame and attacks the ball downfield," Weidl tweeted. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Doctson recorded 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 scores last year, and has been compared to Jordan Matthews by CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. Doctson and QB Trevone Boykin should have another monster season between the two of them.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson "can be sloppy with his underneath and intermediate routes, but he plays to his length and can absolutely wear defenses out with his catch-and-sprint ability," notes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"While the evaluator in me sees holes in Doctson's game as an NFL receiving prospect, the college football fan in me knows what Doctson is getting ready to do when his breakaway speed is paired with quarterback Trevone Boykin yet again," Zierlein wrote. He ranks Doctson as the No. 7 receiver in the nation. The raw 6-foot-4, 190-pounder, compared by CBS Sports' Dane Brugler to Jordan Matthews, put up 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 scores last year.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein notes that TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green "is a creative runner with instant change-of-direction skills that allow him to cut and go without gearing down."

Zierlein ranks Green as the nation's No. 10 RB. "Green features outstanding play speed over the first 20 yards, and he's a smooth pass catcher with a chance to create matchup issues out of the backfield," Zierlein wrote. "The only real knock on Green is that he's a little undersized and could stand to be a strong run finisher." The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Green, a transfer from Nebraska, had 922 yards on 129 carries (7.1 YPC) with nine touchdowns to earn second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2014. Regarding those numbers, consider this: Green didn't have more than six carries in a game until November 1, and he didn't have as many as 20 in any game all season. With B.J. Catalon gone, Green is going to break out in a huge way this year.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin will "need to make strides to remove the 'project' label as a progression passer," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The analyst ranks Boykin as the No. 4 senior quarterback in the land. "After pulling double duty in 2013 at both QB and wide receiver, Boykin transitioned to full-time signal-caller in 2014 and became a Heisman candidate," Kiper wrote. "He's an exceptional athlete with a strong arm, but anticipation is a problem and bad decisions were common." The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein passes along word that scouts "aren't yet sold" on redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin's "ability to transition from the TCU system into an NFL offense."

Perhaps no other passer improved as much as Boykin from the 2013 to the 2014 season. We saw him succeed inside and outside of structure. Yes, he could look more comfortable on a consistent basis inside of a closing pocket, but Boykin has displayed the skills on numerous occasions. We are excited for his 2015 season. Zierlein also notes scouts believe Boykin is closer to 6-foot tall, rather than his listed height of 6-foot-2. From what we can tell, Boykin is playing in a similar offense to the one Andy Dalton played in.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter reports that scouts don't question TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin's height, but they do question his build.

"The troubles Robert Griffin III has had staying on the field during his short career will lead teams to question whether Boykin's slight frame (6-1, 208) will hold up to a next-level pounding -- especially considering he's most effective when using his feet to challenge defenses," Reuter wrote. "He is capable of making plays from the pocket, however; a strong senior season and postseason work might be enough to convince a team to take a chance on him relatively early in the draft." Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014. Before we even become nitpicky with his frame, we need to see Boykin polish off his passing skills and show an ability to work through multiple progressions.

TCU redshirt senior RB Aaron Green "is the clear centerpiece of the running back rotation as a senior, bringing big-play speed to a high-powered offense," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The transfer from Nebraska had 922 yards on 129 carries with nine touchdowns to earn second-team All-Big 12 honors in 2014. With B.J. Catalon gone, Green will be in line for even more work in 2015.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson "could be this season's Kevin White" if he proves "physical enough for scouts' liking" postulates NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

Not bad company, right? Doctson began his career at Wyoming, but his career has really taken off since he transferred to TCU. "He became Heisman Trophy candidate Trevone Boykin's favorite target (65 receptions, 1,018 yards, 11 TD) by finishing routes inside, turning short routes into long gains, as well as getting deep," Reuter wrote. "Once he gets down the field, he can separate using his length and speed, and shows an uncanny ability to track the ball over either shoulder." The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder was compared by CBS Sports' Dane Brugler to Jordan Matthews.

Sports Illustrated's Ben Glicksman believes TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "could become exceedingly difficult to cover" in 2015.

"If he can start to hone some underneath routes to complement his beat-you-deep dominance—something SB Nation’s Ian Boyd broke down in extensive detail last month—Listenbee could become exceedingly difficult to cover. That’s especially true given that TCU’s offense returns senior quarterback Trevone Boykin, the preseason Heisman Trophy favorite," Glicksman wrote. The TCU prospect recorded 38 receptions for 709 yards, with three touchdowns last season for the Frogs. The Speedster tore it up during spring football and could be a big-time wide out in the Big 12 this season.

ESPN's Max Olson believes TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin can work on his third down play this fall.

The 6-foot-2 Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns last season -- adding 642 rushing yards and eight ground scores -- but his QBR was 72.5, a none-elite showing good for No. 22 in FBS. He completed 55 percent of his passes on third downs, ranking 60th in FBS, with a 9/4 TD/TO ratio. Perhaps because of that, TCU ranked 93rd in FBS by scoring a touchdown on only 47 percent of third-down plays in the red zone. To be fair, the Frogs faced an inordinate amount of third-and-longs and we doubt that trend will continue in 2015. Yes, it appears that TCU's offense could be even better this fall.

TCU junior CB Cameron Echols-Luper had the fastest 200-meter time in the country with 20.39 seconds at the Big 12 championships in May.

Echols-Luper is the son of TCU running backs coach Curtis Luper. He was an All-Big 12 honorable mention performer last season as a returner. Echols-Luper's 10.6 yards per return average finished fourth in the Big 12.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson has "great hands, deep speed, leaping ability and ball skills that can make him difficult for smaller corners to handle," wrote Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

Doctson caught 65 passes for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns last year, leading TCU in each category. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder is a leaper with a huge catch radius. He's thin and not a burner, however. For those reasons, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler compares Doctson to Jordan Matthews.

NFL Media ranks TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee as the No.1 fastest players in college football.

The 6-foot-1, 183-pound Listenbee posted the fastest time in the country among football players in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.04 seconds and recorded the second fastest in the 200-meter dash (20.61). At the 2014 Big 12 Championships, Listenbee ranked fifth in the 100 meters and finished fourth in the 200 meters.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin is the third-most versatile player in the nation, believes NFL Media.

The 6-foot-2 Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns last season, adding 642 rushing yards and eight ground scores. "The preseason Heisman Trophy hopeful isn't just one of the most athletic quarterbacks in the country. Just dig back to 2013, when he caught 26 passes for the Horned Frogs and became the first player in school history to post a 100-yard rushing game, a 100-yard receiving game and a 200-yard passing game in the same season," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "His days of catching passes now are over, but Boykin is dangerous enough just throwing them." Boykin is a Heisman frontrunner whose draft stock is far from decided. He's ridiculously athletic, but his passing skills remain rudimentary and he must break the bad habit of staring down receivers.

NFL Media ranks TCU HC Gary Patterson as the No. 10 most attractive college head coach to the NFL.

"Patterson's defensive expertise would be well-suited to moving up to the NFL given the diversity of his schemes," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "The complexities he layers on his players might translate better at the pro level given how much more time could be devoted to football, and few have been more successful than him when it comes to slowing spread offenses." Patterson boasts a 132-45 career record. Last year, Patterson led TCU to a 12-1 record and was named the Associated Press' Coach of the Year.
