Toledo senior OG Greg Mancz could go in the top 110 picks with a good season, according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

Mancz, a four-year starter, has moved all over the line the past few years, logging time at right tackle and both guard spots. Pauline believes he may see action at center this fall as well. "Mancz is tough as nails, smart and effective both on the line of scrimmage as well as blocking in motion," Pauline wrote. "He comes with good height (6-feet/4.5-inches) and growth potential. I stamped him as a potential 4th/5th round pick but feel a good campaign in 2014 followed up by a solid showing in pre-draft workouts as well as All Star games could move Mancz into the initial 110 picks."

Toledo senior LB Junior Sylvestre "could make a surprising jump up draft boards this season," writes TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"The linebacker led Toledo in tackles last season and is expected to test through the roof in the lead up to the draft," the analyst wrote. Sylvestre was an unknown part-timer entering last year, but broke out with 118 tackles while finishing amongst the team leaders in TFL (9.5), sacks (5), fumble recoveries (3) and forced fumbles (3). CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote earlier this month that Sylvestre "won't be as high of a pick as Khalil Mack, [but] has shown similar versatility rushing the passer, dropping in coverage and simply being an all-around force, recognizing what the offense wants to do and putting himself in position to make a stop."

Toledo redshirt sophomore DT Treyvon Hester received a preseason Rds. 5-6 grade from TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"Hester lacks the great measurables yet the sophomore is easy to spot on film as he’s constantly behind the line of scrimmage disrupting the action," the analyst wrote. "I’ll go on record saying he’s a potential three technique tackle and one to watch moving forward." Luckily for Hester, he has three years eligibility remaining to move up into the top half of the draft. The work begins now.

Toledo redshirt junior WR Alonzo Russell is a "future top 100 prospect if he continues to progress," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Russell is someone who really stands out on film. He’s tall fluid and dependable," Pauline wrote. "Though not a vertical threat, Russell is sneaky fast and stretches it deep on occasion." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote earlier this month that Russell was "one of the top playmakers in the MAC." Russell has combined for 115 catches and 1,688 receiving yards over his two seasons of eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder runs a 4.58 forty. Pauline grades him as a preseason Round 4 prospect.

Toledo redshirt junior WR Alonzo Russell is "one of the top playmakers in the MAC," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Russell is continuing in the tradition of Lance Moore and Eric Page as a disruptive outside Rockets' threat. Russell has combined for 115 catches and 1,688 receiving yards over his two seasons of eligibility. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder runs a 4.58 forty.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler tabs Toledo senior OG Greg Mancz as a "late rounder or priority free agent."

Mancz has been a stabilizing force on the Rockets' offensive line since his freshman campaign, starting all 38 games since 2011. Thirty-five of those starts came at right guard -- where he projects at the next level -- and three came at right tackle. "He is a smart, tough, grind-it-out type of blocker who displays the heady temperament needed for the next level and projects as a late rounder or priority free agent," Brugler wrote.

Toledo senior LB Junior Sylvestre is "a relentless player with the pursuit speed and competitive drive that can't be ignored on tape," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Sylvestre was an unknown part-timer entering last year, but broke out as a junior with 118 tackles while finishing amongst the team leaders in TFL (9.5), sacks (5), fumble recoveries (3) and forced fumbles (3). "He was only 205 pounds when he arrived at Toledo and has added nearly 20 pounds, but his size won't be considered a strength for him at the next level," Brugler wrote. "He is a relentless player with the pursuit speed and competitive drive that can't be ignored on tape, displaying the range and effort to make stops all over the field. Although he won't be as high of a pick as Khalil Mack, Sylvestre has shown similar versatility rushing the passer, dropping in coverage and simply being an all-around force, recognizing what the offense wants to do and putting himself in position to make a stop."

Vikings signed Toledo C Zac Kerin.

Kerin (6-foot-4 1/2, 310) took over as a starter on the Rockets' interior line as a sophomore and went on to start 38 games, mostly at center. He earned All-MAC recognition in all three of those seasons. A passable athlete with plenty of strength (30 bench-press reps), Kerin projects as an interior reserve capable of playing either guard or center for the Vikings. There's an outside chance he'll grow into a starter.
May 11 - 3:23 PM

Falcons signed Toledo WR Bernard Reedy.

Reedy (5-foot-7 5/8, 174) was a second-team All-MAC pick as a senior, finishing his career with 196 catches for 2,735 yards (14.0 YPR) and 23 touchdowns. He scored three more TDs on kick returns as a junior, and one more on a punt. Reedy ran 4.52 at the Rockets' Pro Day, adding a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. A diminutive slot receiver/returner, Reedy was an impact lower-level college contributor but lacks NFL talent.

Eagles signed Toledo undrafted free agent RB David Fluellen.

Fluellen (5-foot-11 1/8, 224) was the Rockets' starter for two seasons, finishing his career with 3,336 yards and 28 touchdowns on 561 carries (5.95 YPC), adding 80 receptions. He was a first-team All-MAC pick as both a junior and senior. Fluellen ran 4.72 at the Combine, but showed lower-body burst with a 10-foot broad jump and 36 1/2-inch vertical. He is a no-nonsense, between-the-tackles power back who doesn't shy from contact, but lacks elusiveness and a second gear in the open field, and battled nagging injuries in college with an upright running style. The Eagles do have an opportunity in the backfield after trading Bryce Brown Saturday.

Toledo senior C Zac Kerin has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Kerin has started for the last three season at multiple spots along the offensive line. The redshirt senior has most recently lined up at center, which is always a position of high value.

Toledo senior RB David Fluellen, who injured his leg against Bowling Green, will likely play against Eastern Michigan.

After opening the season in a limited capacity, Fluellen has put forth solid performances in the last few weeks. The previous injury was to Fluellen's ankle, so we aren't sure if this recent ailment is related.

Toledo senior RB David Fluellen was seen on crutches and in a walking boot following an ankle injury, but he is expected to play versus Central Michigan.

The ankle injury suffered against Eastern Washington is only considered "slight," but Toledo seems to be taking every precaution. Fluellen is averaging 6.4 yards per carry on 300 total yards and two touchdowns. He's likely the MAC's top running back.

Toledo senior RB David Fluellen was limited to 88 total yards against Florida on Saturday.

Fluellen carried the ball nine times for 46 yards and caught three passes for 42 yards. Florida's offense struggled, but their defense is extremely talented despite a handful of suspensions that were handed down for this contest. Fluellen might be the MAC's top running back and is worth keeping on your radar.

Toledo expects junior Dwight Macon to contribute at QB and WR in 2013.

"At quarterback, Macon will back up returning Senior starter Terrance Owens," Ohio Valley Athletics wrote. "Owens threw for 2,707 last year for the Rockets. At wide receiver, Macon is projected to line up in the slot for the Toledo spread offensive attack."
