Boise State's Correa Captures AP All-Bowl Team Honor

And the accolades keep coming.

Boise State Broncos' very own Kamalei Correa has been named to the AP All-Bowl Team. The STUD end lineman for Boise State (who is actually listed as a linebacker for the All-Bowl Team) had four total tackles, two tackles for losses, two sacks, and a forced fumble. He also garnered Defensive Player of the Game.

For his career Correa has 69 tackles, 41 assisted tackles, 20 sacks for 121 yards, 11 tackles for loss, and 3 forced fumbles. While his numbers were "down" from his sophomore campaign (12 vs 7 sacks) Correa was still a massive obstacle for offenses.

With a strong showing in the Poinsettia Bowl, it is no wonder that Correa is taking his talents to the NFL, opting to forego his final year of college eligibility.

Mr. Correa will undoubtedly find success in the NFL, regardless of where he goes. The only question is if/when he gets his name called in the upcoming draft. To forego a senior season, Correa must have been given a decent grade that warranted early departure. Last year Ajayi had fallen to the fifth round due to some concerns over wear and tear on his knee. Correa has no such concern (and not a running back) so his stock should be consistent and predictable.

While his playing days are through at Boise State, he will provide another solid example of the type of players that are coming through for the Broncos. Being the third player to leave early in as many years (Lawrence in 2014 and Ajayi in 2015) the Broncos look to have, yet, another athlete to showcase the school's ability to develop fantastic athletes.
