Which Boise State player will be drafted first in April's NFL Draft?

New, 55 comments

The buildup to the NFL Draft is one-third over with the Senior Bowl in the books and the combine and pro days still to come, and Boise State's senior stars are about to find themselves at the center of some hot debates. Why, here's one of those debates now. As of this morning, in your expert opinion or haphazardest guess, which Boise State player will go first in April's NFL Draft?

Boise State reporter Chadd Cripe picked the brain of an NFL scout who said that Doug Martin, Shea McClellin (now moonlinghting at inside linebacker), and Tyrone Crawford are the most likely Broncos to go first.

Prior to the start of last season and as recently as a couple months ago, Nate Potter and Billy Winn were first-round material.

George Iloka turned in a stellar Senior Bowl and only figures to get more attention for his unique size and style as draft season continues.

And then there's that Kellen Moore fellow.

So who do you think will be drafted first? Share your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll.

I'll take Tyrone Crawford who played lights out in the East-West Shrine game and has the type of upside and potential that teams looooove in their defensive linemen. I think Doug Martin is the best prospect, but with NFL teams emphasizing the running back less and less, he could be one of the first few off the board and still go behind Crawford. You're welcome to disagree in the comments.
