News: Colorado State tight end Crocket Gillmore was the team's leading receiver, catching six passes for 81 yards and a score.
Analysis: Gillmore is averaging just over four catches per game and is arguably the top target for quarterback Pete Smith. With tight ends that are even semi-productive in short supply, Gillmore is a productive tight end worthy of some attention.
News: Colorado State tight end Crocket Gillmore continues to be a key contributor to the offense, snatching five passes for 42 yards in the loss to San Jose State.
Analysis: The sophomore is averaging about four catches per game. If the passing game suddenly is resurgent, Gillmore could do some real damage moving forward.
News: Colorado State tight end Crocket Gillmore was the lone bright spot in the loss to Colorado. Gillmore caught five passes for 84 yards and a score.
Analysis: Gillmore has caught at least four passes in each of the Rams' three games. He's certainly capable of making big gains once the ball is in his hands -- or getting behind the linebackers on routes. He's a guy who seems to have a very exciting upside and is one to keep an eye on.
News: Colorado State quarterback Pete Thomas was much like the Rams offense against Colorado -- inconsistent and low-producing. Thomas was 18-of-28 for 157 yards and no scores through the air -- though he did get a touchdown on the ground.
Analysis: Thomas struggled to get the offense rolling in the loss. He missed some receivers that were open and really didn't get anything going downfield other than a couple passes to tight end Crocket Gillmore. Thomas is making strides, but he still has some growing to do.
