There's already discussion about the prospects for Boise State student-athletes in the upcoming National Football League Draft. Some people think has many as seven Broncos will be chosen. There's something important to keep in mind, though--these drafts never turn out as well as we hope or believe they should go. I've looked at several "Mock Drafts" and here are some of the highlights:
CBS projects no Broncos will be chosen in the first round. Now NFL Draft does not have any Broncos in either their first or second round, but they do project tackle Nate Potter as #83 (to Chicago) and defensive tackle Billy Winn #94 (Baltimore). Walter Football has the highest projection for a Boise State star (#39) for Winn to Carolina and also projects Potter as the #88 pick by the New York Giants. Draft Tek does not project a Bronco in the first two rounds either but this is the first I've found that goes through five rounds. They project Winn (#77 to San Diego), Potter (#90 to Baltimore), defensive end Shea McClellin (#109 to Arizona--fourth round), quarterback Kellen Moore (#151 to Atlanta--fifth round) and safety George Iloka (#157 to San Francisco--also fifth round).
We'll continue to update you on what the "experts" think of Boise State's chances in the draft.
