04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Chiefs picks: Round 4/107 - Devon Wylie, WR, 5-9, 186, Fresno State...Wylie brings the element of speed to the roster that they desperately need, especially on special teams where he shined at Fresno returning punts. He could easily become the Wes Welker of the K.C. offense. COULD SURPRISE: Wide receiver Devon Wylie: Maybe the first of the Chiefs draft class that sees regular playing time, thanks to his background in the slot on offense and participating in special teams as a punt returner. - The Sports Xchange

03/29/2012 - Having spent the past four months establishing himself among NFL scouts and executives at all-star events and the combine, Devon Wylie had quite the edge on his ex-Fresno State teammates Wednesday. In fact, representatives of the 15 teams at the Bulldogs' pro day workout at Bulldog Stadium seemed more interested in how Wylie performed in receiver-specific drills than the rest of the three-hour session. Wylie, after all, likely will be the first of the Bulldogs taken in the April 26-28 draft -- maybe the only one. One projection has him going as early as the fourth round, and Wylie said he's seen others that have him as high as the sixth-best receiver and a potential third-rounder. "All the feedback I've gotten has been good," said Wylie, listed at 5 feet, 9 inches and 187 pounds. "The main thing I've heard back is how I've been surprising a lot of people. I feel like I had a good career here, but a lot of people didn't know who I was, especially the scouts. "At the combine, as soon as we started doing workouts, people were like 'Who is this guy?' It's been good to finally get some appreciation for the type of player I am." Wylie, who had 56 catches for 716 yards and also averaged 15.4 yards per punt return as a senior, clearly was the headliner Wednesday. - Bryant-Jon Anteola, The Fresno Bee

01/23/2012 - TOP TEN PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES AT THE EAST-WEST SHRINE: WR Devon Wylie, Fresno State: Last names that begin with the letter "W" aren't the only similarity Wylie has with Wes Welker as the Fresno State receiver shows the short-area burst and quickness to work in the short-half of the field. He fights the ball at times and is a smaller target, but he makes sharp, decisive cuts and flashed an elusive quality in practices. Wylie looks best as a "Y" receiver in the slot and also offers value as a punt returner. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/21/2012 - EAST-WEST SHRINE MONDAY: Receivers Devon Wylie out of Fresno State and Arkansas' Jarius Wright don't look like much on the field, but both are quicker than fast, showing their coordinated footwork and body control in drills. They are players to keep an eye on as the week plays out. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/06/2011 - 2011 ALL-WAC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): ST-Devon Wylie, Sr., Fresno State, has been selected All-WAC Conference Second Team for the 2011 college football season as voted upon by the WAC's eight head coaches. Wylie's play as a punt returner for the Bulldogs was nothing short of phenomenal. He finished fourth in the FBS with a 15.38 average on 29 punt returns and he brought two back for touchdowns - a 79 yarder vs. No. 5 Boise State and a 67 yarder at No. 10 Nebraska. - Fresno State football
