TCU senior WR Deante' Gray was labeled "doubtful" for the team's season-opening game against Minnesota.

Gray underwent knee surgery after suffering a non-contact injury in the spring. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior hauled in 36 passes last season, good for 582 yards and eight touchdowns. The speedy slot receiver posted his biggest game against Texas Tech in late October, totaling 165 yards and two touchdowns on four catches. There's no timetable for his return, though he should see action some time this fall.

TCU HC Gary Patterson praised senior S Derrick Kindred's expanded voice in the locker room, noting that "he's been a leader, he's made plays."

"I played my freshman year. I feel like I had to grow up very quick," said Kindred, who added that TCU "[has] a chance to be faster, stronger. But it’s not even about that. It’s all about how you mentally prepare each week and how you study your opponent." The 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior started all 13 of the Horned Frogs' games last season while tallying 80 tackles and four interceptions. Quarterback Trevone Boykin has nicknamed him "Peanut."

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson is expected to play versus Minnesota in the season opener despite being limited in preseason camp with an undisclosed injury.

Doctson is TCU's top receiving option, and his skills match up well with Trevone Boykin's strengths. Doctson broke his hand during spring camp and has missed time with another injury, so his offseason has been spotty. He might be the top contested catch receiver in the country in terms of acrobatic plays. Doctson can threaten defenses with three routes: slant, vertical and comeback.

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson "has tons of speed and quickness," according to the National Football Post's Eric Saltzman.

"He has a great release, and when not being pressed at the line of scrimmage, can reach his top speed in just a few steps," he wrote. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wideout hauled in 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2014. "The Horned Frog receiver also has an ability to make some spectacular catches," Saltzman wrote. "He might not be as refined a route runner as some other receivers, but he has the quickness to become one with some additional coaching." TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline recently reported that "a number of scouts believe he is the top receiver from the senior class."

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter projects TCU senior edge rusher James McFarland as a 3-4 OLB in the NFL.

"Like most TCU ends, he plays standing up and with his hand on the ground, but his NFL future is as a 3-4 strong-side linebacker," Reuter wrote. "McFarland has some quickness to get around blockers, as well as the punch and long arms to get leverage against run plays." Despite not starting all of last year, McFarland led TCU with seven sacks, adding 12 tackles for loss. "Sometimes he uses that leverage to drive his man straight into the quarterback," Reuter wrote. "With another productive season of using that strength to his full advantage, scouts will believe he can play right away."

In its latest Heisman odds, sportsbook Bovada has ranked TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin as co-favorite with Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott.

Both Boykin and Elliott are listed as 5/1 favorites by the sportsbook, with J.T. Barrett (9/1), Nick Chubb (12/1) and Leonard Fournette (12/1) rounding out the current Top-5. There's no denying that the Horned Frogs' redshirt senior gunslinger is an athletic freak, having thrown for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns last season while rushing for 642 yards and eight scores. It's important to keep in mind that Boykin remains a work-in-progress, though. That might lead to a Heisman showing, but he still has work to do as a passer.
Aug 19 - 7:07 PM

ESPN's Phil Steele ranks TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin as the No. 2 preseason Heisman candidate.

Boykin checks in behind only Cody Kessler. "How do you get to be the preseason favorite to win the Heisman Trophy?" Steele wrote. "You start all 13 games, lead your team to 12 wins, have the No. 2 scoring offense and the No. 5 overall offense and -- oh, by the way -- your team returns a total of nine offensive players." Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores last year. He has a receiver's athleticism and is still improving as a thrower.

TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "flashes big play ability but needs to up his production a bit," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Pauline added that he "like[s] the potential" of the Horned Frogs' playmaker. The analyst grades Listenbee as a preseason Rd. 5 prospect. "Listenbee offers terrific measurables and the talent to line-up as a third receiver on Sunday," he wrote. The 6-foot-1, 183-pounder has the fastest time amongst college football players in the 100-meter dash (10.04 seconds). He recorded 38 receptions for 709 yards and three touchdowns last season.
Aug 16 - 10:24 PM

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson is a "reliable wide out who displays solid run after the catch skill," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline observes.

"Doctson lacks elite size/speed numbers which will push him out of the top 40 selections, though a number of scouts believe he is the top receiver from the senior class," Pauline wrote. Last season, the TCU prospect posted just the second 1,000-yard receiving season in Horned Frogs history. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wideout hauled in 65 receptions for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2014.
Aug 14 - 2:06 PM

TCU redshirt senior WR Josh Doctson has been limited in preseason practice with an undisclosed injury.

Doctson broke his hand during spring activities and missed most of those reps. At the school's media days Doctson stated he was fully healthy, but something must have transpired since. "He’s still practicing a little bit," head coach Gary Patterson said. Hopefully the injury does not last long, as Docston is one of the better receivers in the country.
Aug 12 - 10:10 AM

Per NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter, TCU senior WR Kolby Listenbee "must demonstrate sufficient physicality and consistent hands to earn high grades from NFL teams."

The 6-foot-1, 183-pound Listenbee very well could be the fastest player in all of college football. He had the fastest time amongst football players in the 100-meter dash (10.04 seconds), the second fastest in the 200-meter dash (20.61) and was an All-American last year in the 4x100 relay. "That speed jumps out on film," Reuter wrote.

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.

Jul 16 - 6:42 PM

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.
