Tulane DR Tanzel Smart has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Smart has dominated his final collegiate season, totaling 12.5 tackles for loss from the interior, including 4.5 sacks. Tulane is by no means a bad program, but events like this are perfect for a prospect like Smart to shine.

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries in Saturday's 50-27 loss to Tulsa.

Tulane might have lost by 23 points, but their running game was absolutely on point in this one. Not only did Hilliard impress in averaging 11.08 YPC, Josh Rounds picked up 166 yards rushing of his own. Tulane finished out with 364 yards rushing as a team. For his part, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard has now picked his way to 538 yards and seven touchdowns through seven games played. He makes for a low-grade fantasy option.

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for just 21 yards on eight carries in Friday's 24-14 loss to Memphis.

Hilliard wasn't doing much, though that just makes him one of a crowd, as this was a lackluster offensive showing on all fronts for the Green Wave. QB Glen Cuiellettt managed just 144 yards passing and the running game as a whole totaled just 169 yards. Only Lazedrick Thompson (eight carries for 69 yards) made much of a positive impression. For his part, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard has rushed for 405 yards and five touchdowns through six games this season.

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard is starting in Friday's game against Memphis.

Hilliard will once again see the bulk of carries with Sherman Badie (groin) out for a fourth consecutive contest. The 6-foot, 185-pound junior has rushed for at least 95 yards in three of five games this season.
Oct 14 - 8:07 PM

Tulane redshirt junior RB Sherman Badie (groin) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Memphis.

Badie has played in just two games this season. He initially sustained the groin injury in a Week 2 win over Southern and has been sidelined ever since. Dontrell Hilliard will again start in his place during Friday's date with the Tigers.
Oct 14 - 8:03 PM

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard ran for 97 yard and a touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's win over Massachusetts.

From a fantasy perspective, the Green Waves' backfield situation as it pertains to Hilliard is starting to clear up. When Sherman Badie (groin) is out, you want to start Hilliard. When Badie plays, neither can be counted on. Badie missed this one. Check on his status leading up to this weekend's UCF game if you're deciding on Hilliard.
Oct 3 - 5:09 PM

Tulane redshirt junior RB Sherman Badie (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Not only will Badie sit out Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette, HC Willie Taggart indicated that he will miss "at least a few weeks." The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder suffered a groin injury against Southern in Week 2. Despite a bye last weekend, he has been unable to heal up sufficiently. This season, he has rushed for 66 yards on 12 carries.
Sep 23 - 2:44 PM

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for 97 yard and a touchdown on 16 carries in Saturday's 21-14 loss to Navy.

Hilliard rocked and rolled for a 36-yard scoring run with 26 seconds remaining in the third quarter. That gave the Green Wave a 14-13 lead heading into the fourth, but Navy would top them with a touchdown in the final quarter, one which they were unable to answer. After rushing for just 36 yards in a season-opening loss to Wake Forest, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard has racked up an even 200 yards over the last two games. He will try to keep it rolling against Louisiana-Monroe next Saturday.
Sep 17 - 10:38 PM

Tulane senior DT Tanzel Smart's "quickness, change of direction and ability to get leverage on opponents is impressive," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Tulane held the Deacs to 175 yards of offense over the weekend, with Smart a big reason why, "omnipresent and tough to stop all evening," Pauline wrote. Smart totaled four tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack. He's a sleeper interior prospect to monitor.
Sep 7 - 12:26 PM

Tulane named redshirt sophomore QB Glen Cuiellette the starter for 2016.

In naming him the starter, Green Wave HC Willie Fritz cited Cuiellette's experience and "command of the offense." For his part, the 6-foot, 215-pound Cuiellette explained that "[t]here's a slight relief [to being named the starter], but overall the way I feel is that this is just the beginning." While he appeared in just one game last season and did not attempt a pass, ESPN graded him as a three-star recruit for the 2014 cycle.
Aug 28 - 1:10 PM

Tulane dismissed redshirt junior S Leonard Davis.

It is not yet known what Davis did to earn the dismissal, but he won't be suiting up for the Green Wave this season. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder redshirted last season due to academic issues. In 2014, he recorded 15 tackles and 0.5 sacks. While these are modest enough numbers, Davis was expected to start at strong safety this coming season. Sophomore Roderic Teamer and true freshman Sean Harper figure to draw increased reps in camp as HC Willie Fritz tries to cover for Davis' dismissal.
Aug 4 - 1:07 PM

Tulane junior RB Dontrell Hilliard was named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List.

As a sophomore, Hilliard rushed 115 times for 646 yards (5.6 ypc) and six touchdowns. He added 23 catches for 267 yards (11.6 ypr) and one score. With Willie Fritz and his powerful triple-option attack coming to town, the 6-foot, 185-pound Hilliard is a lock to improve on those numbers.
Jul 30 - 12:08 PM

The Baton Rouge Advocate's Guerry Smith reports that Tulane has dismissed redshirt freshman RB Nigel Anderson.

Smith's little birdies told him that Anderson was hit with a dismissal, but no specific reason for his exit is known at this time. The 5-foot-10, 187-pounder was a consensus three-star recruit coming out of East St. John High in Louisiana. Now no longer with the Green Wave program, Anderson's future plans should come to light over the proceeding days and weeks.
Jun 24 - 1:00 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Tulane T Arturo Uzdavinis "might need time to develop in the NFL."

Brandt came away impressed with the athleticism Uzdavinis showcased on his Pro Day, specifically singling out the 6-foot-4, 316-pounder's 35-inch vertical jump as evidence of the big man's more explosive traits. Over the summer, colleague Chad Reuter wrote that Uzdavinis has the "size, agility and willingness to finish blocks" that might tempt scouts. Despite this, Uzdavinis did not earn an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine.
