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 will not retain DC Steve Stanard.

"We appreciate Steve’s efforts these past three seasons and wish him well in his future," said HC Craig Bohl in a (very) brief statement. Stanard has been with Wyoming for the past three seasons. While the Cowboys impressed with a surprise 8-6 season (6-2 in conference play), their defense was one of the worst in the country in 2016. They surrendered almost 35 points on average.

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.

An AFC executive said that "the tools are there" for Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen.

"[Allen is] a big ol’ kid with a big arm, and he’s pretty athletic too," said the executive. He will have a chance to shine in bowl action on Wednesday, as the Cowboys will be taking on a tough BYU defense in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. In 13 games this season, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound redshirt sophomore has passed for 2,986 yards while racking up a 26/13 TD/INT ratio. Benjamin Allbright of AM1340 in Denver tweeted on Wednesday that he had heard "a rumor or two" that Allen is considering declaring for the draft. Allbright believes he would be better served returning to school for one more season. We would agree with that assessment.

Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko reports that Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill is leaning toward declaring for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hill will be tangoing with BYU in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday night and his official draft decision figures to follow in relatively short order. Through 13 games this season, the 6-foot-1, 220-pounder has rushed for 1,767 yards (5.5 YPC) and 21 touchdowns. Both the yardage and touchdown numbers stand as career bests for the Wyoming wrecking ball. Draft Insider Tony Pauline wrote near the end of October that Hill "should do well as a rotational ball carrier on Sundays."
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 05:35:00 PM

Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Josh Allen completed 14-of-31 passes for 248 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 27-24 loss to San Diego State in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Allen was a bit up-and-down in this one, but he certainly did have his moments. He tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter and had a chance for a potential game-tying or game-winning score late before turning over the ball to seal the defeat. In 13 games to date, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound redshirt sophomore has thrown for 2,986 yards with a 26/13 TD/INT ratio.

Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill rushed for 93 yards on 16 carries in Saturday's 27-24 loss to San Diego State in the Mountain West Championship Game.

Fantastic defensive effort by SDSU to lock down Hill, especially after he bruised them for 131 yards and two touchdowns just two weeks ago. Not only did they hold him under 100 yards rushing, 66 of his 93 yards came on one single carry. Entering Saturday's action, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior had broken off at least 100 yards rushing in six consecutive contests.
