Clady Named First-Team NFL All-Pro

Offensive tackle Ryan Clady made history by becoming the first Boise State star to be named First Team All-Pro, the Associated Press announced. The annual NFL Pro Bowl will be January 31 in Miami.

Former Boise State standout offensive lineman Ryan Clady has been named a starter for this year's National Football League Pro Bowl.  Clady, who now plays for the Denver Broncos was chosen to the All-Pro 2nd team last season along with former Bronco Quentin Mikell of the Philadelphia Eagles. 

The 2010 Pro Bowl will be January 31 in Miami.

Clady was selected in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft as the 12th pick overall by Denver .  He was the first Boise State player to be selected in the first round.  Denver signed him to a five-year deal worth $14.75 million.  He has started at left tackle in every game the last two years and did not give up a sack until 20 games into his career.

Clady immediately made an impact at Boise State .  He was named First-Team Freshman All-America by ESPN.com, second-team Freshman All-America by Rivals.com and CollegeFootballNews.com and third-team Freshman All-America by The Sporting News.  He started 11 games at right tackle and helped Boise State finish ninth in the country in scoring (36.08 points per game), 19th in rushing (202.46 yards per game) and fifth in rushing touchdowns (36).  He was named to Outland Trophy Watch List in the preseason and finished as a second-team All-American on the SI.com team.

Ryan moved to the right side in 2006 and started all 13 games.  He helped Boise State to a perfect season, culminating in a historic 43-42 win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.  Clady helped Boise State finish second in the nation in scoring (39.96), second in rushing touchdowns (39) and sixth in rushing (214.15 yards per game).

In 2007, Clady earned First-team All-America honors by both the American Football Coaches Association and The Sporting News, and was named second-team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation and SI.com and third-team All-America by Rivals.com.  Clady and the Broncos were fifth in the country in scoring, sixth in passing efficiency and ninth in total offense. 

Clady finished third in voting behind Matt Ryan and Chris Johnson for the 2008 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.   He was the only offensive lineman to receive any votes.  Clady was named to the Associated Press NFL All-Pro Second Team behind Michael Roos and Jordan Gross.  

Sporting News named Clady as the #1 offensive tackle in the NFL prior to this season.  After Denver's October 4th victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Clady set a new NFL record for consecutive games to start a career without giving up a full sack.
