Wyoming redshirt sophomore RB Kellen Overstreet (knee, shoulder) indicated that he has been given a complete medical clearance to participate in spring practice.

Overstreet tore his ACL at the end of the 2015 season and also underwent a further shoulder surgery. Those ailments predictably kept him on the sidelines this past season, when he took a redshirt. The 5-foot-11, 196-pounder has returned to full health and should receive a legitimate look as the Cowboys search for their Brian Hill replacement this offseason. Nico Evans and Mike Green will also be in the mix for starting honors.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline predicts that Wyoming TE Jacob Hollister will make an NFL roster next year.

"Hollister is incredibly athletic but needs to improve his blocking," Pauline wrote. Hollister posted a career-best 32-515-7 line last year.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Wyoming redshirt junior QB Josh Allen "would’ve competed to be the first signal caller off the board" had he entered this year's NFL Draft.

"The size, release, arm strength and athleticism to make plays with his legs or arm is a more complete package than any signal caller I presently grade for the 2017 draft," Pauline wrote. The analyst went back to Wyoming's film recently and came away even more impressed with Allen than he had been previously. "Some of the passes Allen made were just jaw-dropping," he wrote. "He consistently delivered the ball accurately through the tight spots with speed."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Wyoming WR Tanner Gentry met with the Patriots during Thursday's pro day and had dinner with the Ravens later that night.

Gentry posted solid measureables all the way around on pro day. Among his testing results, he hoisted the bar 19 times on the bench press, notched a 38.5-inch vertical jump and sprinted through the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds. Pauline writes that the 6-foot-1, 208-pounder "looked outstanding during pass catching drills including a one-handed grab on a go route which drew a rise from scouts." The analyst notes that "he’s the type of player the Patriots swipe in the late rounds then goes on to have a tremendous career." This past season, Gentry logged a stellar 72-1326-14 receiving line.

Wyoming RB Brian Hill met with the Chiefs, Lions, 49ers, Buccaneers and Ravens.

This per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline. Hill took part in Wyoming's pro day on Thursday, with Pauline relaying that he "looked good in drills, especially catching the ball." The 6-foot-1, 219-pounder managed to improve on a modest 4.54-second 40-yard dash from the combine on pro day, hitting 4.47 seconds on some stopwatches. He should see interest on Day 2.
Mar 10 - 1:27 PM

Per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, Wyoming RB Brian Hill has been running recent 40s in the low 4.4s at around 220 pounds.

If true, this will help Hill differentiate himself from a loaded group of second- and third-tier backs. The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder rushed for 1,860 yards and 22 touchdowns during a monster final season on campus. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has compared Hill to Jay Ajayi.

Wyoming WR Jake Maulhardt will move to TE in the hopes of making a career in the NFL.

Maulhardt stands six-foot-six and weighs 235-pounds, only a five-pound weight gain since the season ended. He hopes to get up to 250-pounds before the school's pro day in March. Maulhardt said discussions with NFL scouts is what pushed him to change positions.

Wyoming G/C Chase Roullier accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Roullier acquitted himself well in Pro Football Focus' grades as a guard in 2015, and he was named a second-team all-American offensive lineman by USA Today as a center in 2016. Roullier moved to center before the season, a transition that should only help his stock. Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said before the season that Roullier was an NFL talent and as good a linemen as he's coached.

Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen will return to school for the 2017 season.

All of the "buzz" will be put on hold, although it might turn out to be hype more than anything else. Allen is a one year starter who completed 56 percent of his passes last season, along with 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He has a big arm and can win outside of structure, which likely fed into evaluators' love despite the poor numbers. We will pick up on this conversation this summer.
Jan 12 - 8:19 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline stresses that he believes that Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen would be best served to return to school in 2017.

Pauline loves Allen's upside as a passer, but cautions against an NFL jump as things stand. "I firmly believe Allen has first round potential but needs more experience," the analyst writes. "The fact he struggled late in the season does not help his draft stock." Pauline went so far as to say that a draft declaration at this juncture would be "a mistake." The 6-foot-5, 220-pound redshirt sophomore threw for 3,193 yards with a 28/15 TD/INT ratio this past season.

Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Eric Galko of the Sporting News and Optimum Scouting has been pounding this drum over the past week or thereabouts, with Hill himself making it official on Monday. In 2016, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound NFL-hopeful rushed for 1,860 yards and 22 touchdowns in what unfolded as his best season at the collegiate level. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller notes that Hill reminds him of Jay Ajayi, while Draft Insider's Tony Pauline likes his physical running style and believes he should be able to take a pounding at the next level. Pauline believes he has a better build for the NFL than fellow Mountain West standout Donnel Pumphrey. CBS Sports tabs him as a potential third- or fourth-round selection.

The Sporting News' Eric Galko reports that Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hill will join 2017's monster-class-to-be at the position. He is fresh off a 2016 campaign in which he rushed for 1,860 yards and 22 touchdowns over the course of 14 games. In mid-October, Draft Insider's Tony Pauline noted that the 6-foot-1, 220-pounder is a "bigger back who can handle a lot of carries," one who "should do well as a rotational ball carrier on Sundays." Hill figures to be a Day 2 selection come spring 2017, assuming the glut of running back talent in this draft doesn't swamp him down to Day 3.

Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in Wednesday's 24-21 loss to BYU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

Not the shiniest of games for Hill, who entered Wednesday's bowl showdown having rushed for at least 100 yards in nine of his first 13 games. BYU limited the 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior back to just 3.6 YPC. He was only able to shake loose for a long run of 12 yards. Despite this down showing, Hill's 2016 campaign has been nothing short of awesome on the whole. The first-team Mountain West selection finishes the season having rushed for 1,860 yards and 22 touchdowns. Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko reported on Wednesday that Hill was leaning toward a draft declaration, meaning he may well have played his final game in a Wyoming uniform. Stay tuned.

Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen completed 17-of-32 passes for 207 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Wednesday's 24-21 loss to BYU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

A rather disappointing outing on the whole for Allen. The Cowboys managed just one touchdown drive through the first three quarters before they made a late run at the Cougars via a pair of Allen touchdown tosses to leading wideout Tanner Gentry. Too little, too late, though. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder has seduced the draft community at times this season, with an AFC executive recently saying that Allen is a "big ol' kid with a big arm," a big ol' kid who is "pretty athletic, too." He could potentially jump for the draft, now, though it might do him well to stay in that Wyoming oven for another season of development. After opening the 2016 campaign with a sparkling 7-2 record (including wins over bowl-bound squads Eastern Michigan, Air Force and Boise State), the Cowboys struggled down the stretch, finishing the season (including bowl action) with losses in four of their last five games.

Wyoming senior WR Tanner Gentry caught seven passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Wednesday's 24-21 loss to BYU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

With workhorse back Brian Hill held under 100 yards rushing and QB Josh Allen throwing a pair of interceptions, Gentry proved to be Wyoming's most reliable offensive performer on Wednesday. The 6-foot-2, 201-pounder's 113 yards represented more than half of Allen's passing output. In addition, Gentry's two touchdown grabs very nearly brought Wyoming back from the dead. The Cowboys trailed 24-7 early in the fourth quarter before Gentry came through with scores of nine and 23 yards to bring the Cowboys to within a touchdown. Alas, they would score no more. Gentry finishes his 2016 campaign having caught 72 passes for 1,326 yards and 14 touchdowns. All three of those marks are career bests by a healthy margin.
