2012 NFL Mock Draft: Boise State's Billy Winn, Nate Potter Looking At Rounds 2 Or 3

The Boise State Broncos expect to have five or more players in the 2012 NFL Draft. Kellen Moore isn't predicted to go early, but his teammates might wind up in the second or third rounds.

The Boise St. Broncos figure to have a large 2012 NFL draft class in April, but don't expect quarterback Kellen Moore to lead that group. Though he (and his senior teammates) went 50-3 over the last four years and threw 142 touchdowns to only 28 interceptions, questions remain over his size, which is generously listed at 6-foot-1 at places. But just ask Drew Brees about height being an issue (that shoulder injury being a completely differently issue). On Monday night, he set the single-season passing record that had stood for 27 years (Dan Marino, 1984).

If not Moore, then who is likely to be the first Boise State player off the board. WalterFootball.com is predicting defensive end/tackle Billy Winn to go off the board in the second round to the Carolina Panthers at pick No. 39. Winn has 16 career sacks and 25 tackles for loss in his career. Being able to play both end and tackle helps increase the 6-foot-4, 295 pound lineman's draft stock.

Consensus All-American tackle Nate Potter then goes off the board in the third round. The 6-foot-6, 300 pound lineman could find worse places than the New York Giants to land. He'd be on a line the features guard Chris Snee, one of the better lineman in the league.
