Looking for an NFL team to root for this fall? No? You've sworn off the NFL after it failed to draft the world's only perfect quarterback? Fair enough. I get that.
For the rest of you, choosing an NFL team to follow this fall will be an exercise in moderation considering how many rosters are dotted with former Boise State players. Over half of the NFL's 32 teams (17, to be exact) have a Bronco in camp, and an even 10 have two Broncos. Now that the NFL Draft is in the books and free agency has settled down, allow me to reset the NFL landscape as it relates to Broncos in the pros. Your new favorite team awaits.

How do Boise State players impact your NFL team rooting interests? Should I have even bothered counting Orlando Scandrick in this list? Share your thoughts in the comments.
