Worthington BLOG: Boise State Football and the NFL Draft

4/29/21

 

The NFL Draft is what I consider the best non-sports sporting event of the year.  I wish I knew a better way to say it. Consider it like this, what other event gets sports fans fired up without ever seeing a team even take the field?  Does the Running of the Bulls in Spain count? I don’t know, but NFL football fans are just about all excited to see the draft.

Boise State has for 11 strait years had a player drafted.  Here is the list. (Courtesy Wikipedia)
