UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline earlier this season. We think it's likely that Geathers will have to make a roster on his special teams ability, and perhaps he can showcase that aspect of his game to scouts at the Senior Bowl. The Golden Knight has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman will enter the draft.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last week that Perriman "is a[n] NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if he declares early." Well, start up the presses. Pauline graded Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect, though he's probably inched up boards a little. Perriman drops balls that he shouldn't, and his technique doesn't inspire, but he's a legit deep threat who forces safeties back. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder has caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10. You probably recall his Hail Mary reception to beat East Carolina last week. Perriman collected 41 receptions on the season for 906 yards (a 22.1 YPR average) and nine scores. "Perriman has flashed big time ability the past two seasons as well as an equal amount of inconsistency in his game," Pauline wrote.
Dec 13 - 9:34 PM

UCF senior ILB Terrance Plummer intercepted his first pass of the season in Thursday's win over East Carolina.

Plummer is a tackling machine and a leader of UCF's stout defense. The 6-foot-1, 232-pounder is a bit undersized and can get pushed around, but he's very mobile and shows good diagnostic skills. Plummer is a Day 3 possibility.
Dec 7 - 4:14 PM

UCF senior WR Rannell Hall had six catches for 65 yards in Thursday's win over East Carolina.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall missed a few games earlier this season and struggled with consistency when he was on the field. It was a case of missing good friend Blake Bortles, perhaps. Hall isn't a great athlete, but he may hear his name called in the spring because his quickness projects nicely to the NFL slot.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman "is a NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if he declares early," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"UCF WR Breshad Perriman is a NFL prospect who will get more and more ink if declares early. Good-sized athlete with big mitts," Brugler tweeted. The UCF prospect finished with four receptions for 139 yards and hauled in a miracle 51-yard Hail Mary as time expired to beat East Carolina 32-30 on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Perriman finished the regular season having caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10.

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman hauled in a miracle 51-yard Hail Mary as time expired to beat East Carolina 32-30 on Thursday.

East Carolina's defensive backs bizarrely didn't defend the goal line, and all mistimed their jumps, allowing the moonshot of a pass from Justin Holman to find Perriman's hands as if a routine play had been called. Perriman finished with four receptions for 139 yards and the miracle score. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder finished the regular season having caught a touchdown in seven straight contests, and nine of 10. The Golden Knights head into bowl season 9-3, including 7-1 in the American, winning a share of the conference for the second straight year.
Dec 4 - 11:44 PM

UCF coach George O'Leary reported that senior receiver J.J. Worton suffered a career-ending torn ACL during UCF's win over SMU last week.

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Worton ends his career with 168 catches for 2,360 yards and 21 touchdowns. UCF's leading receiver averaged 14 yards per catch during his career and 14.3 this season. Worton played a part on special teams for the Knights, returning 72 punts for 740 yards, while averaging 10.3 yards per return.
Dec 1 - 2:35 PM

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman caught six balls for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win against South Florida.

The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder was Blake Bortles' favorite deep-ball receiver and ranked near the NCAA leaders with a 20.8 yards per catch average last year. So what has he lost with Justin Holman behind center? Eerily, nothing. Perriman finished with 38 catches and 811 receiving yards in 2013, and has 37 catches for 767 yards and eight touchdowns this season (20.7 YPC). TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect.
Nov 30 - 4:37 PM

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman caught seven balls for 146 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win against Temple.

Perriman's big day helped pushed the Golden Knights to 5-2. UCF was forced to take a big downgrade in QB play when Blake Bortles bolted for the NFL, but Justin Holman has one of the nation's most underrated receiving corps to work with. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded the 6-foot-2, 209-pound Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect.
Oct 26 - 8:32 PM

The Orlando Sentinel reports that UCF senior LB Terrance Plummer was named the national defensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Plummer, had a career-high 17 tackles - 4.5 for loss - versus BYU last Thursday helping the Knights to 31-24 overtime victory. In the fourth quarter, the senior stepped up big when it mattered the most and put together a string of impressive fourth quarter plays. The UCF Prospect came up with a forced fumble, fumble recovery and a sack for a loss. Plummer currently leads the Knights with 53 tackles and has 7.5 tackles for loss.

UCF sophomore QB Justin Holman "has the size, arm strength and mobility to certainly qualify as a prospect to keep an eye on for the future," CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote.

"The sophomore needs to learn to sprinkle in some touch on his passes rather than relying just on velocity and threw two interceptions [against BYU on Thursday], including one late in which he forced a pass late over the middle," Rang wrote. Holman (6-foot-4, 213 pounds) completed 28-of-48 attempts for 314 yards and carried nine times for 20 yards and a touchdown versus the Cougars.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that UCF senior LB Terrance Plummer "currently checks in as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 12 inside linebacker."

Rang notes that the 6-foot-1, 232-pound Plummer,"was all over the field" versus BYU as he recorded at least 15 tackles, including several tackles for loss. The senior linebacker also forced and recovered a fumble. Last season, Plummer led the Knights with 110 total tackles.

UCF senior WR Rannell Hall "provided evidence in the 31-24 overtime win over BYU to suggest that he, too, may have a future in the NFL," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While Bortles is now starting for the Jacksonville Jaguars, his favorite receiver from a year ago -- Rannell Hall -- provided evidence in the 31-24 overtime win over BYU to suggest that he, too, may have a future in the NFL," Rang writes. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall hauled a game-high eight passes for 71 yards on the night against BYU. The UCF prospect also added in a 58-yard kick return in the third quarter which helped the Knights get back into the game after surrendering three consecutive touchdowns. Rang adds that, Hall's "grit and reliability will earn high marks from scouts, he isn't an elite athlete. He's quicker than fast, which likely means that his best chance at success in the NFL will come out of the slot."

UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman caught six balls for 83 yards in Thursday's 31-24 overtime victory over BYU.

Perriman's previous season-high in catches was only three, which speaks more to his acclimation from Blake Bortles to Justin Holman than anything. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder was Bortles' favorite deep-ball receiver and ranked near the NCAA leaders with a 20.8 yards per catch average last year. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Perriman as a preseason Round 5 prospect.
Oct 9 - 11:31 PM

UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers "plays with a special teams mentality," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

It's a useful observation, as Geathers will likely have to make the NFL as a special-teamer at first. "Geathers entered the season stamped as a free agent prospect by scouts but has since elevated his game," Pauline wrote. "In four games this year the senior posted 35 tackles and during UCF’s conference victory over Houston last week he intercepted 1 pass while breaking up 2 more. He’s a forceful safety best in the box and plays with a special teams mentality." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in July that Geathers "has the athleticism to play in reverse." The Golden Knight has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr.
