TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin hopes to improve on completing more "passes over the middle" this season.

"One of the main things I focused on was just passes over the middle, and Coach Cumbie and Meacham felt like a lot of the plays over the middle, we really didn’t complete," Boykin told ESPN. "We had a lot of throws outside. Thing like that, we’re just trying to get better. That’s where you make your money at the next level, and a dream of mine is to play at the next level." The TCU prospect made strides in the pocket in 2014, but still has room to improve in that department. Scouts will be watching for more consistent play from Boykin, as a passer this season. In 2014, Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores.

TCU redshirt sophomore DB George Baltimore will retire from football due to a shoulder injury.

Baltimore underwent "extensive shoulder surgeries" before coming to this decision. He played in all 13 games last season and could have started in 2015 since TCU lost both safeties to the NFL.

The Big 12 media named TCU the favorite to win the conference.

The vote wasn't close, with the Horned Frogs receiving 32 first-place votes (408 points total) and Baylor garnering 10 (384 points). No other school claimed a first-place vote. In order, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas rounded out the top five.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter argues that TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin is the early favorite to get named to the 2015 All-American first-team.

He's not exactly going out on a limb, as 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. "Boykin isn't the biggest of quarterbacks (6-foot-2, 205 pounds), but if he uses his arm and feet to improve on his dual-threat numbers as a senior, he'll get a trip to New York City as a Heisman finalist -- and TCU might earn the CFB Playoff berth it narrowly missed in 2014," Reuter wrote. Boykin was the 2014 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and was additionally a finalist for the Walter Camp and Maxwell Awards.

TCU senior DT Davion Pierson provides a "steady presence for the Horned Frogs, anchoring what is almost always a strong defensive front," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

Pierson started all 13 contests and was a honorable-mention All-Big 12 nominee last year, posting 30 tackles, eight TFL and 3.5 sacks. "For all the justified hype around TCU and its loaded offense, there is plenty of work to be done with the turnover on defense," Brown wrote. "The line brings back the most experience, and it all starts with Pierson, a 6-foot-2, 305-pound senior who has started 35 games in his TCU career." The scribe ranks Pierson as the No. 25 defensive tackle in the country.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson reminds NFL draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah of Jordan Matthews.

"Studying TCU WR Josh Doctson-- reminds me of Jordan Matthews. Tall, rangy athlete with high point skills. Similar play speed," Jeremiah tweeted. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler also made the same comparison between Doctson and Jordan Matthews recently. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Doctson has the ideal size for the next level and utilizes his frame to body-up smaller defenders. Docston posted 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson "is one of the best-kept secrets in college football," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The analyst ranks Doctson as the No. 2 senior wide receiver in the upcoming draft class. "He had more than 1,000 yards last year and knows how to use his length on high, contested balls, where he relies on his basketball skills to consistently win the rebound, so to speak," Kiper wrote. "He's not an elite runner, but perhaps strength will help. He needs to add some bulk anyway." The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Doctson recorded 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns last year.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown grades TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin as the nation's No. 4 quarterback.

"Boykin was hardly flawless as a passer [last year], as he plenty of room for improvement in the pocket, but he's a dynamic quarterback surrounded by talent, including one of the nation's top receiving corps and offensive lines," Brown wrote. "No one will be taken by surprise by this offense in 2015, but that won't matter." 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. Boykin caught 26 passes for 204 yards two years ago; some believe he's a better fit at WR in the NFL.

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.
Jun 29 - 2:21 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 6:08 PM

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.
