Previous 25 Utah Notes Next 25 Utah Notes

03/26/17 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
Utah Pro day: Offensive tackle Garett Bolles will almost surely be the first Ute selected this year, with guard Isaac Asiata and safety Marcus Williams likely following close behind. All three currently rank among my top 64 prospects, but after turning heads in Indianapolis, all three focused on positional workouts, leaving the spotlight to fall on arguably this yearís biggest combine snub: edge rusher Hunter Dimick. The 6-3, 274-pound Dimick led the Pac-12 with 14.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss in 2016 but was nevertheless not invited to the combine in large part because he lacks the desired length (including 31-inch arms) for NFL edge rushers. While his arms might be shorter than ideal, they certainly are powerful, as Dimick recorded 38 reps on the bench press Thursday, three more than Asiataís combine-best 35 a few weeks ago. Dimick also proved quicker than expected in the 40-yard dash, registering a time in the low 4.7s, according to a source on the scene. Despite the fact that he was not invited to the combine, Dimick currently ranks 19th among defensive ends and a solid Day 3 value. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com


03/07/17 - (OT) - *Garett Bolles, Jr, 6-5, 297
NFL Combine Cliffhangers: Will there be a consensus top tackle? Probably not. The most gifted tackle in the draft is Utahís Garett Bolles but he will turn 25 years old in May and has only one season at the FBS level, as does Wisconsinís Ryan Ramczyk. Alabamaís Cam Robinson is a classic mauler in the running game but is not the dancing bear teams want at left tackle and comes with significant off-field concerns. The only consensus about this yearís tackle class is that it might be better to wait. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com


03/04/17 - (OT) - *Garett Bolles, Jr, 6-5, 297
2017 NFL Combine, Day 3 Takeaways: 8. Utahís Garett Bolles rolls ... perhaps into the first round?...The big winner among offensive linemen in the bench press drills Thursday was Utahís Isaac Asiata, but Friday it was his former teammate Garett Bolles who wowed with his sheer athleticism, clocking in at 4.95 seconds in the 40-yard dash (including a 1.76-second 10-yard split), a 7.29-second three-cone and a 4.55-second time in the short shuttle, each among the top three among the approximately 45 offensive linemen tested. The 6-foot-5, 297-pound Bolles currently ranks third on NFLDraftScout.comís board and is viewed as a potential first-round pick, something that Fridayís efforts will no doubt help. - Dane Brugler & Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com


03/04/17 - (OT) - *Garett Bolles, Jr, 6-5, 297
2017 NFL Combine, Day 3 Winners: Garett Bolles: In a weak offensive line class, the tackle out of Utah made himself some money on Friday. Bolles ran a 4.97 40; itís always impressive to see a lineman crack five seconds. Bolles put himself up there with Ryan Ramczyk and Cam Robinson as the top prospects in this draft class with an impressive effort in the athletic drills on Friday. Plenty of teams late in the first round and at the top of the second round need help on offensive line, so it wonít be surprising to see his star rise. - Will Brinson, CBSSports.com


03/02/17 - (OG) - Isaac Asiata, rSr, 6-3, 323
Asiata wows with 35 reps as offensive linemen hit bench press...Offensive linemen showing off their strength in the bench press was the first athletic testing to be completed at the 2017 NFL combine. The results produced some early winners, including Utahís Isaac Asiata, who led all of Thursdayís competitors with 35 repetitions of 225 pounds, narrowly beating out TCUís Aviante Collins, Texas A&Mís Jermaine Eluemainor and Western Kentuckyís Forrest Lamp, who each managed to push up the bar successfully 34 times. Needless to say, scouts generally take a ďmore is betterĒ approach when it comes to the bench press, but they also recognize the factor that arm length plays in the exercise. Players with shorter arms have an inherent advantage over those being asked to push the weight further. This fact just makes Asiataís strength all the more impressive given that he has 33 3/4-inch arms, longer than Collins (33 3/8 inches), Eluemainor (33 1/4 inches) and Lamp (32 1/4 inches). Asiata strength isnít just limited to the weight room. The defensive linemen in the Pac-12 honored him with the Morris Trophy as the best offensive lineman in the conference this season. The three-time All-Pac-12 pick was invited to the Senior Bowl (and fared well there) before a hamstring strain forced him to leave Mobile early. Asiata currently ranks sixth among NFLDraftScout.comís guards and 96th overall, and is viewed as a third-round value. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com


03/01/17 - (OT) - *Garett Bolles, Jr, 6-5, 297
2017 NFL Combine, Wednesday takeaways: 6. Measurements for top-rated junior offensive linemen...For seniors, most teams have verified measurements from fall visits or all-star games. But for the underclassmen, teams are eager to get the exact numbers for several of the top-rated junior line prospects. And several passed the test. Wisconsinís Ryan Ramczyk came in a 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds with 33 3/4-inch arms and 10 7/8-inch hands. Alabamaís Cam Robinson measured at 6-foot-6 and 322 pounds with 35 1/2-inch arms and 10 1/2-inch hands. And then thereís Utahís Garett Bolles, who came in at 6-foot-5 and 297 pounds with 34-inch arms and 9 3/8-inch hands. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com


01/05/17 - (OT) - *Garett Bolles, Jr, 6-5, 297
Utah left tackle Garett Bolles says he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. He announced his plans through Twitter on Wednesday night. Bolles transferred to Utah from Snow College for the 2016 season. He started all 13 games and was named first-team All-Pac-12. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound tackle helped the Utes finish with the No. 32 rushing offense in the nation even though Utah's running back group was ravaged by injuries. He finished the season as one of the most punishing run blockers in the conference. Bolles tweeted that "playing in the NFL has been one of my ultimate goals and I believe it's time to pursue it and provide for my family." - AP Sports


01/04/17 - (OG) - Isaac Asiata, rSr, 6-3, 323
2016 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BOWL TEAM: Offensive line Isaac Asiata, Utah: Asiata paved the way for Joe Williams' 222-yard rushing performance in Utah's 26-24 Foster Farms Bowl victory over Indiana . Asiata won the Morris Trophy this season as the Pac-12's top offensive lineman, an award determined by voting from the conference's starting defensive linemen. Honorable mention: Zach Banner, Southern California; Parker Braun, Georgia Tech; Jesse Burkett, Stanford; Tyler Gauthier, Miami; Ty Hayworth, Wake Forest; Tejan Koroma BYU; Chandler Miller, Tulsa; Jordan Rose, Idaho; Jonah Williams, Alabama. - AP Sports


12/29/16 - (RB) - Joe Williams, Sr, 5-11, 210
Utah rides ground game to another bowl win...Utah running back Joe Williams was an unlikely hero of Wednesday's Foster Farms Bowl, considering he had retired from football early in the season and was sick as a dog on Tuesday. But Williams was there when he was needed most, rushing for 222 yards and providing most of the work in the game-winning drive that gave 19th-ranked Utah a 26-24 victory over Indiana. "He was fantastic," said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who improved his record to 10-1 in bowl games. "Joe was so sick last night, running a fever, we weren't sure we would have him today." Williams ran for 168 yards in the second half and he had 64 of the yards in the 68-yard drive that set up Andy Phillips' 27-yard field goal with 1:24 left that put the Utes (9-4) ahead and continued their postseason success. Utah has won its last four bowl games and 13 of its last 14. "I just had some sinus trouble and coughs," said Williams, who revealed that he got married a few weeks ago. "My wife told me this is our last ride. So I had to do like the Jordan flu game." - The Sports Xchange

11/15/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
Hunter Dimick was so eager to begin his collegiate career at No. 11 Utah that he wanted to skip a planned senior trip to Spain. The Syracuse, Utah, native was the first football player from his high school to earn a Division I scholarship as a three-star recruit and he dreamed of playing for the Utes. He didn't want to miss a portion of summer workouts for a vacation. "That was a very good but very long two weeks away," Dimick said. "It was great. Nothing beats time with your family, but it was good to get back." Five years later, the senior is tied with John Frank as the school's career leader in sacks (27) after setting a school single-game record with five against Arizona State last week. His 12 sacks so far this season tie him with Louisiana Tech's Jaylon Ferguson for the most in the nation and his 17.5 tackles for loss are No. 3.

Dimick has had a roller-coaster career with soaring highs and some upsetting lows. He stood out as a redshirt sophomore in 2014 with 10 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss then played just seven games in 2015 due to a shoulder injury. Dimick has started every game as a senior and his five sacks last week put him into a tie for third-most in a single game in NCAA history. Dimick credits his "small-town mentality" for the way he works. He pushed himself to exhaustion during the offseason and still has it in the back of his mind that he "didn't expect to be here." - AP Sports
