3-4 Lucas Reed TE 4Jr 97 Brother of UA star Brooks Reed. Sized well, can get down the field and make plays in the secondary. Gives effort blocking. Possesses a lot of upside yet needs to round off his game. Good prospect for the future.

3rd Ryan Lindley QB 5Sr N Underrated signal caller with a lot of skill for the next level. Possesses a solid intermediate arm, an adequate deep arm and accurate with all his throws. Makes good decisions in the pocket. Should only get better as he physically matures.
3rd Nik Embernate G 4Jr 68 Terrific guard prospect that consistently dominates the opposition at the point of attack. Effective run blocker that also stands out in pass protection. Nice upside.
6th Markques Simas WR 5Sr 6 former CU Buff we had highly rated at one time. Had a host of off the field issues in Boulder and will play for SDSU this season. A lot of talent.
FA Miles Burris ILB 5Sr 9 Hard charging linebacker that makes plays up the field or in space. Limited size yet could be a top special teams prospect.
FA Alston Umuolo TE 5Sr 7 Athletic prospect returning from a knee injury which sidelined him in ’10.  Playmaker at the position that flashed brilliance.
FA Kurtis Gunther T 5Sr 79 Well sized college tackle that must be monitored.
FA Tommie Draheim G 5Sr 60 College left tackle that projects to guard. Strong at the point and plays smart football yet lacks agility and only effective in a small area.
FA Richard Ketchum OLB 5Sr 31 Limited two down defender that shows a good head for the ball in run defense.

FA Greg McCoy CB 5Sr 7 Fluid and smooth defensive back that flashes ball skills.
FA Logan Brock TE 5Sr 80 Adequate college tight end that does a solid job as a blocker and pass catcher. Potential third man on the depth chart at the next level.
