'06 NFL Draft Watch: Boise State

The Broncos of Boise State have put together an unbelievable string of success since the 2002 season. Running the table during last year's regular season, Boise State fell short against Louisville in the Liberty Bowl. While this years team may not be as victorious on the football field, the program could have a player selected during the opening day of the draft. It would be just the second time in the past decade.

Scouting the WAC: Boise State

Offensively all eyes are on left tackle Daryn Colledge.  A productive starter since he was a redshirt freshman, Colledge is a nasty blocker who plays with terrific football smarts.  Displaying range off the edge, Colledge stands out in pass protection.  Getting leverage on opponents, he makes great use of angles and works hard until the whistle blows.  A marginal run blocker, Colledge lacks true left tackle size and may only fit certain NFL schemes.  His combination of football knowledge and tenacity puts him in the top 75 selections. The program has placed several productive tight ends into the NFL and junior Derek Schouman could be next.  Quick releasing off the line into pass routes, Schouman makes plays into the defensive secondary and consistently finds the open spot on the field.  Blocking with leverage, he is undersized and must improve his playing strength.

The team offers a pair of solid interior line prospects.  Senior Alex Guerrero is an explosive tackle with  outstanding first step quickness.  Keeping his pads low to the ground, Guerrero drives up the field and is constantly doubled in the middle of the line.  Junior Andrew Browning is also another quick tackle, constantly flying around the football.  Wedging through double team blocks, he is more explosive then Guerrero yet significantly smaller.
