Several scouts following the Senior Bowl have reportedly given Doug Martin first round grades. He is only behind Alabama's Trent Richardson for the running back position. If selected, Martin would be the third Boise State player ever to be selected in the first round of the NFL draft following Ryan Clady and Kyle Wilson.
With Petersen at the helm, I'm not too worried about the offense but being on the third coordinator in 3 years is no fun. But new OC Robert Prince sounds like he has a good handle on everything. New QB coach Jonathan Smith and QB Nick Patti were also interviewed on the school's radio program.
I think CB Donte Deayon may be who I'm most excited to see hit the field.
That's what is being hinted at. It sounds like the Big East is trying to make plans in case West Virginia does join the Big 12 this year. Also included is that Air Force may still be a possibility to join the Big East as the 12th member. That would be the best case scenario for Boise State.
