Cliff Avril OLB 32 3Jr 3/4 Solid linebacker with good size.  Effective against the run and pass.

Kyle Ingraham WR 89 4Jr 7th Nice sized wide out declared academically ineligible this year.

Josh Allen RB 33 5Sr 7th Hard working back with solid size/speed numbers.  Suffered a major knee injury in '04 and has not been the same.
Conrad Bolston DT 95 4Sr FA
Explosive nose tackle prospect with decent upside.  Must improve the details of his position and take his game to another level.
Jared Gaither T 78 2So 2/3 Massive blocker who eliminates opponents from the action.  Graduated from high school three years ago but best served returning for one more year of college ball.
Stephon Heyer T 70 5Sr 6/7 Nice sized tackle who had his moments after returning from a knee injury which shelved him in '05.
Sam Hollenbach QB 14 5Sr FA Accurate college passer who makes a lot of poor decisions.
David Holloway OLB 54 5Sr 5/6 Son of All Pro tackle Brian Holloway.  Tough, nasty defender with the ability to be used at several linebacker spots.
Dre Moore DT 92 4Jr 4/5 Tremendous athlete with good size.  Shows flashes but needs better consistency.  Likely headed into the draft.
Adam Podlesh P 36 5Sr 7th Strong legged punter who gets terrific hang-time.
Andrew Weatherly WR 11 4Sr FA
Nice sized receiver whose production falls short of his size/speed numbers.  Played three games this season and likely to apply for another season of eligibility.
Josh Wilson CB 4 4Sr 2/3 Developing cover corner with great speed.  Rising up draft boards and could move further north after pre-draft workouts.
