Wyoming suspended junior LB Cassh Maluia for the season-opener against New Mexico State on Aug. 25.

Maluia (6'0/230) was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence, underage consumption of alcohol and driving without a license upon his being arrested early last Saturday. Wyoming held off on announcing his punishment until Friday, as HC Craig Bohl had been out on the recruiting trail. Maluia is in the mix to start at weakside linebacker this year -- at least once he's served that opening suspension -- after posting 74 tackles (3.5 for loss), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble during the most recent campaign. In addition to the suspension, he'll also be required to perform 50 hours of community service, complete a university training course and go to mandatory counseling.

Early on Saturday morning, Wyoming junior LB Cassh Maluia was arrested and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence, underage consumption of alcohol and driving without a license.

No further information is currently available as to the exact circumstance of Maluia's arrest. Wyoming is aware of the alleged indiscretion, but has not as of yet issued public discipline in regards to the matter. Cowboys HC Craig Bohl is out on the recruiting trail for the week, so it could be a few days before we hear from the team more extensively on this one. A potential starter at weakside linebacker for the coming campaign, Maluia registered 74 tackles (3.5 for loss), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble last season.

Wyoming redshirt junior WR Milo Hall will transfer.

Hall (5'8/190) rushed for an even 100 yards last season while catching five passes for 21 yards. He was working in the running backs room at the time, but shifted over to wide receiver this offseason. Cowboys HC Craig Bohl offered a generous parting statement for the redshirt junior, noting that Hall was "a true team player" with the program. While his versatility will appeal to other outfits, he'll have to sit out the upcoming season to satisfy NCAA regulations should he confine his transfer to within the FBS.

Wyoming HC Craig Bohl indicated that sophomore RB Trey Woods (shoulder) might be able to return at some point this year.

"Initially, we thought that he for sure would be out for the year," Bohl said, adding that the team is taking a wait-and-see approach with the sophomore back, who earlier underwent surgery to repair a shoulder issue which had kept him sidelined for the majority of spring practice. The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder rushed for 493 yards (3.5 YPC) and two touchdowns last season. Bohl specifically made reference to the NCAA's new regulations regarding redshirts -- players will be allowed to take the field in four games, now, before the redshirt is burned -- and wondered aloud whether this might come into play for Woods. All of this said, Woods is still expected to miss the start of the upcoming season, which will allow opportunity for Kellen Overstreet and Nico Evans to see heavier workloads until he's healthy enough to make his return.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling lists Wyoming senior DB Andrew Wingard among the best "small school" prospects in the 2019 draft class.

Wingard considered entering the NFL Draft after making 114 tackles and five interceptions in 2017, but he'll be back in 2018 for the Cowboys, and the 6-foot, 207-pound safety has a big fan in Easterling. "A versatile defender who can line up at multiple spots, Wingard’s frame, toughness and instincts will likely limit him to being a box defender at the next level, but that won’t keep him from being a sought-after prospect," he writes. If Wingard produces like he has over the past three years, he has a real chance to be among the first safeties to come off the board in 2019.

Wyoming senior DE Carl Granderson has made a concerted effort to add weight this offseason.

Granderson was listed at 6-foot-5, 255 pounds last season. He's up to 261 pounds, now, as he readies for his final season of collegiate ball. In 2017, he was named an All-Mountain West first-team performer after logging a career-best 78 tackles (16.0 for loss), 8.5 sacks, two interceptions and two fumbles forced on the year. He'll be a prospect to keep an eye for draft purposes once the season gets underway.

Wyoming sophomore DT Javaree Jackson (back) has been ruled out for the coming season.

Jackson (6'5/250) played in 11 contests last season, registering 25 tackles in that space. Back surgery will prevent him from taking the field this year. Wyoming will be applying for a medical redshirt in order to preserve his eligibility. Consider it a minor loss for the Cowboys, but not a critical blow. Jackson was listed as the third-team nose tackle on the team's depth chart post-spring.

Wyoming sophomore RB Trey Woods (shoulder) has been ruled out for the upcoming season.

Woods (6'4/185) led the Cowboys in rushing last year, putting up 493 yards (3.5 YPC) and a pair of touchdowns on the ground over the course of 12 games played. Modest enough numbers, but Wyoming's got work to do to replace him now that he's been ruled out for the fall campaign. The likely first man up to receive a crack at starting carries will be Kellen Overstreet, with Milo Hall and Nico Evans two other backs to keep an eye on in August camp.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar assigned the Buffalo Bills a "B-" for their work in the draft.

With the Bills, we may not be able to truly ascertain the impact of their draft until Josh Allen has matured into an NFL starter -- for better or for worse. Kadar believes that beyond Allen (the most polarizing player in the class this side of Lamar Jackson), "Much of the rest of Buffalo’s draft was a delight." He points to the team's fifth-round selection of Virginia Tech G Wyatt Teller as a stellar one and believes that the former Hokies lineman could push for a starting job sooner rather than later.

Bills traded up with the Bucs to select Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Allen's tweet controversy did not lead to a prolonged slide. The Bills traded the Nos. 12, 53 and 56 (both second-rounders) picks for the right to move up five spots and select whom they hope is their quarterback of the future. They are also receiving pick No. 255 in return. Allen (6’5/237) spent three years at Wyoming after transferring from JUCO, completing just 56.2% of his passes with a 44:21 TD-to-INT ratio and 7.8 yards per attempt with a 16-9 record. In 2017, Allen was beaten out for first- and second-team All-Mountain West honors by Nick Stevens (Colorado State) and Brett Rypien (Boise State). Per PFF College, Allen’s 2017 passer rating (127.8) crashed to 58.5 when pressured, one of the nation’s worst marks. Nevertheless, Allen combines cannon arm strength with dynamic mobility and drew comparisons to Carson Wentz during the pre-draft phase, testing out as an elite 82nd-percentile SPARQ athlete. A boom-bust project, Allen also offers a Bollerian/Lockerian floor.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports that the Jets coaching staff is making a late push for Wyoming QB Josh Allen.

This is interesting, as there are reports that the Jets' front-office currently prefer Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield as the future signal-caller. Now it appears there may be a divide, which isn't uncommon, but isn't ideal, either. There's a chance that both Darnold and Mayfield will both be off the board, and there's been some late rumors that the Jets could move up to the second pick to secure the services of either QB. This will be fascinating to watch when the Jets are on the clock -- whenever that is.

NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the inappropriate tweets from Wyoming QB Josh Allen won't hurt his draft stock.

Earlier on Thursday, reports of insensitive and inappropriate tweets from Allen when he was in high school surfaced, and there have been some reports that those tweets surfaced because a team wanted Allen to slide down draft boards. Rapoport reports that teams don't seem concerned about those tweets, and the signal-caller has apologized. Allen could slide for football reasons, but it doesn't appear that his stock will slide due to anything that occurred in his past on his Twitter account.

On the Pick Six Podcast, CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora lists the Broncos as a team that wants to trade down.

"Denver? He doesn't want to make that pick. They don't want to take a quarterback, they certainly don't want to pay a quarterback $6 million to sit behind Case Keenum," La Canfora said. "A lot of the players they like will be there outside the top 10 and will be a little cheaper and the pressure's off a little bit and Elway hasn't drafted well so give me more opportunities." The Broncos have often been mentioned as a QB landing spot, but if La Canfora is right, that's not going to happen. At least not with pick five.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was approached by two people suggesting rival teams surfaced insinsitive tweets made by Wyoming Josh Allen in high school "in order to increase the chances he would fall in the draft to that team."

That's a bit deep for us, as anyone with a Twitter account could search through Allen's history to find these tweets. Allen is no longer being connected with the No. 1 pick (not because of the tweets), and the near consensus opinion is that he lands with the Buffalo Bills.

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot states the team's choice at No. 1 could be down to Wyoming QB Josh Allen or Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield.

There are a lot of "coulds" and "seems to" in this report, but this statement is clear. "Sources say the Browns have cooled on the USC passer in recent days and that Allen and Mayfield have surpassed him," Cabot writes. We expect Dorsey to reveal to his staff who will be the selection at no. 1 overall, and we think it is Sam Darnold. But any of the three names make sense.
