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.

Tulane announced the hiring of RB coach Jamaal Fobbs and three others.

In addition to Fobbs, Slade Nagle's being brought on as TE coach, Jeff Conway as WR coach and Chris Hampton as DB coach. While Conway's been working as co-OC (among other duties) at Texas State for the past four years, Fobbs, Nagle and Hampton all come to the Green Wave from the FCS.

Tulane redshirt junior WR Devon Breaux has left the football team to focus on track and field.

Breaux finished the 2015 campaign having caught 25 passes for 431 yards and three touchdowns. He was Tulane's No. 2 wideout, but they'll have to look elsewhere for production in 2016. Said the 6-foot, 181-pound redshirt junior, "I want to announce that I'll be graduating this semester & I will not be returning to play football next year. I will be pursuing my Track & Field career for the next two years." Breaux won the AAC long jump in 2015.

Tulane hired Georgia Southern's Willie Fritz as head coach.

Very astute hire by the Tulane brass here. We were a little surprised that lower-tier Power 5 schools with openings -- Iowa State, for instance -- didn't give the 55-year-old Fritz a look. He's gone 9-3 in consecutive seasons and won the Sun Belt Conference title and was the league's coach of the year in 2014. Fritz also directed a powerhouse at Sam Houston State, accruing a 40-15 record. He brings to the Green Wave a triple-option attack that is very difficult to slow down. He'll need a few years to get system fits into New Orleans. Once he does, the sleeping giant that is Tulane may wake up and contend for a title in the American Athletic Conference.

Tulane has fired HC Curtis Johnson.

Tulane finished the 2015 campaign 3-9 under Johnson's watch. It was his third losing season in four years. He finishes his Green Wave career holding a tough 15-34 record. Before finding a new head coach, the school indicated in a statement that they'll first have to secure a shiny new athletic director. Current AD Rick Dickson has already announced that he will be stepping aside in 2016.

Tulane sophomore RB Dontrell Hilliard rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries in Saturday's 41-13 loss to Memphis.

Hilliard scored touchdowns in each of the first two quarters before quieting. While he was efficient and productive against Memphis, he's rushed for just 389 yards and six touchdowns through eight games. There's not much to love for daily fantasy leagues here.

Tulane sophomore RB Dontrell Hilliard carried the ball 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 42-7 loss to Houston.

In Friday's loss to Houston, Tulane had just 150 yards passing and 112 yards rushing as a team. Hilliard scored the squad's lone touchdown when he punched it in from three yards out in the second quarter. Through six contests, the 6-foot, 185-pound sophomore's compiled 241 rushing yards while scoring three touchdowns. He's logged just one game north of 100 yards rushing and can be safely avoided in DFS play.

Tulane senior T Arturo Uzdavinis will "impress scouts and draft followers alike with his size, agility and willingness to finish blocks," believes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"If he tests as well as I expect after the season, there's no reason he can't be a top-100 pick," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot-7, 304-pounder is entering his third year as starter at left tackle for the Green Wave.

Tulane sophomore WR Leondre James will not be on the football team this fall.

James was suspended after the fall for a violation of team rules and seemingly did not do enough to earn his active status back. Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson said James is on track to re-join the team the following season, but that is disappointing for a player who started four games during his freshman year.

Tulane senior DE Royce LaFrance has returned from suspension.

"I expect to see Royce ready to go" for the start of summer camp, said Tulane HC Curtis Johnson. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound LaFrance led the team with six sacks last season and was third in tackles for loss with 11. He had been suspended for academics.

Broncos selected Tulane CB Taurean Nixon with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Nixon (5'11/187) was a two-year letterman at Memphis before spending two years at Tulane. He blazed a 4.36 at his Pro Day and sports a 38 1/2" vertical jump with an 11-2 broad. The Broncos have an athlete to mold.

Broncos selected Tulane CB Lorenzo Doss with the No. 164 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Doss (5'10/182) was a field-flipping ballhawk in Conference USA, securing 15 interceptions in just three college seasons. His 271 return yards set a Tulane record. Due to size and athletic limitations, Doss is best suited to play slot corner in the NFL. Doss ran 4.50 at the Combine with a 33 1/2-inch vertical, and has short arms (29 3/4"). He will need to clean up his tackling to become a consistent defensive force.

While Tulane junior CB Lorenzo Doss' "gaudy interception totals are impressive, workouts could prove critical to his final grade," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While Doss' gaudy interception totals are impressive, workouts could prove critical to his final grade. Doss looks the part of an NFL cornerback with solid overall musculature but he's more efficient than explosive in coverage," Rang wrote. The Green Wave prospect earned Second Team All-American Athletic Conference honors this season, recording 48 tackles and five tackles for loss, with a team-leading nine passes breakups, including three interceptions. Rang notes that Doss "looks the part of an NFL cornerback with solid overall musculature but he's more efficient than explosive in coverage."

Tulane junior CB Lorenzo Doss announced he will enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

Doss turned 20 years old in April and has earned praise from CBS Sports' Dane Brugler in the past. There is no clear top corner in this class, at least at this moment, but we are not sure if Doss factors into that equation. Production-wise he has recorded 15 interceptions in three seasons.

New Orleans Times-Picayune report's that Tulane senior WR Xavier Rush's Wave career has come to an end, after tearing his ACL.

Unfortunately for Rush, he injured his knee during Wednesday's practice. The 6-foot-3, 202-pound senior is Tulane's second-leading wide receiver with 295 yards and three touchdowns. Rush is averaging 19.2 yards a catch. For his career, he's amassed 1,349 yards and 12 touchdowns. Freshman wideout Teddy Veal with take the place of Rush in his absence.
