NFL Draft 2012: Mel Kiper Lists Boise State's Doug Martin, Nate Potter As Top Seniors At Positions

While the Boise St. Broncos wait to play in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl in a couple of weeks, many seniors will also prepare to move on to the level, te NFL. The Broncos should have a a few guys this year who make it in some form to the league.

If we look at Mel Kiper's top five seniors by position, the Broncos have two players on this collection of lists. At running back, Doug Martin is listed as the top senior back available. Martin, 5 foot 9 and 215 pounds, has rushed for 1,148 yards and could break his season-record during the bowl game with 113 yards. He has 42 career touchdowns, 15 this season. He won't find himself taken in the early rounds of the draft.

The other Boise State player to appear is tackle Nate Potter as the No. 4 guy at his position. He isn't former Boise State Bronco and current Denver Broncos Ryan Clady, but Kiper sees Potter's versatility helping his draft stock.

Also making the list is Colorado Buffaloes guard Ryan Miller as the No. 4 offensive guard.
