2012 NFL Draft: Mike Mayock Lists Boise State S George Iloka As No. 3 Safety

The last time the Boise St. Broncos had a first round draft pick came in 2010 when safety Kyle Wilson worked his way up to being the No. 29 overall pick by the New York Jets. Could the Broncos have a second first round pick at safety two years later in the 2012 NFL Draft? The NFL Network's Mike Mayock lists George Iloka as his No. 3 safety in this year's draft class, which might leave him outside of the first round.

Iloka has had an impressive showing in practice at the 2012 Senior Bowl this week, including a big interception. Iloka and Notre Dame's Harrison Smith are the top safeties at the Senior Bowl and both are looking to crack the first round. At moment, Alabama's Mark Barron appears to be the only safety who will go in the first round.

The NFL Draft doesn't take place until April 26, which leaves plenty of time for Iloka to move into the first round.
