Boise State prospects to watch:
Jeremy Nichols | RB | #13 | Junior | 5’9” | 212 LBS
Scouting Report: Nichols is a fierce competitor with an aggressive, relentless running style. He never shies away from contact and keeps his legs moving after colliding with defenders. He is a very balanced runner and can navigate in the hole exceptionally well due to his clean feet and elusiveness. Nichol’s above-par speed is more than enough to break free and win a foot race.

UNLV prospects to watch:
Devonte Boyd | WR | #83 | Redshirt Junior | 6’1” | 180 LBS
Scouting Report: Boyd is arguably the Rebels’ most dynamic player on their squad. He is exceptionally quick and very lethal after the catch. He showcases reliable hands and can stretch the field and go up and snag the football. He displays likeable size at 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, but will likely need to throw on weight to really wants to contend for a spot on a NFL roster next year.
