    With only one game left in the regular season, we look at two underclassmen from TCU who could possibly forgo their remaining eligibility and jump into the NFL draft.

    QB- Trevon Boykin - 6'2 211 pounds RS JR.
    182-260 2763 yards 15 TD 12 INT
    146 rushes 622 yards 17 TD


    Boykin hasn't made the best decisions, no doubt about that, and a lot of NFL teams are questioning him from that aspect. But his speed and versatilely have the scouts drooling. He's very fast and can throw the ball well on the run. He doesn't have the best arm strength, but could possibly flourish in a 49ers read option type offense. A lot of people have compared him to a Russell Wilson type player. Personally, I don't think he's ready for the NFL, but the Heisman finalist may have enough people in his ear telling him he'll be a 1st round pick and he may jump ship because of that. Looking at him from a numbers standpoint, he's not really a 1st round talent. He's thrown way too many interceptions and not enough touchdowns. However, he has good yardage and a great completion percentage. Boykin has been quiet when asked, and the coaching staff has made it clear that they will not try to sway him one way or the other, they will just give him the facts. Ultimately, the best thing for him to do is to come back for his final year, and with no other legit QB as a back up, the Horned Frogs have to hope he comes back as well, but if he walks out of New York with the Heisman, there is little to no chance that he'll return to Ft Worth.

    RB- BJ Catalon - 5'9 188 pounds JR.
    177 rushes 1018 yards 14 TD 0 Fumbles
    9 rec. 87 yards 1 TD


    BJ wasn't even slated to be the starter in the spring, but with the unexpected transfer of Aaron Green, Catalon was thrown in there and has really produced. Averaging almost 6 yards per carry, and already has a 1000 yards on the ground, Catalon has been a huge surprise for the Horned Frogs running attack. Catalon could go in the 2nd or 3rd round if he leaves now, but most everyone thinks he will stay at TCU and finish his degree. He won't be sharing carries next season (much like this season) so barring an injury, he can't do anything but help his stock.


    The remaining 3 games will determine what these two do, but the Horned Frogs can't afford to lose both players. Kyle Hicks isn't ready to take over the starting role at RB just yet, and who will take over for Boykin? No one really knows. If Boykin leaves, I would be willing to bet we saw 3 different QBs next season for the Horned Frogs.
