Today was a good day for the former football Broncos who are striving to prolong their athletic careers on the next level. The Boise State annual Pro Day brought along quite the cadre of scouts, onlookers, and nervous fanboys who just didn’t want to get yelled at.

To that end, nine Broncos were given the opportunity to wow some folks.

If you want the full Boise State recap, visit Broncosports where they have some highlights of the event.

  • Brock Barr
  • Montell Cozart

Some observations

  • This would have been incredibly stressful for a lot of people. It felt like any goof-up seemed to have been magnified by the moment. If a ball wasn’t caught, was it the person who threw it, or the person trying to catch it. If a drill was goofed, was it the explanation of said drill, or the person doing the drill not understanding. A lot was riding on this and it showed.
  • Ryan Wolpin is/was a favorite among the locker room and it wasn’t close. Anytime he was up for a drill a chorus of “Let’s go WOLP!” rang out from former teammates. Pretty neat to see.
  • I am going to miss Cedric Wilson so much.
  • Watching Leighton Vander Esch go through drills was pretty awesome. I will always point to his tape (especially the Oregon game) first to show how athletic he is. But he’s put a lot of work into this portion of his journey.
  • Mason Hampton did not look like he is one full-bladder away from 300 lbs. It must all be pure muscle because he was looking pretty svelt.
  • Cedrick Wilson having the fastest 40 (4.55): yeah, sounds about right. (Going to reiterate how much I am going to miss him.)
  • Ryan Wolpin with the second fastest at 4.56: huh. Did not see that one coming.
  • In all it appeared to be a successful showing for the Broncos, just hope the scouts felt that way.
