The 2012 campaign was, for the most part, a successful one for the Boise State Broncos football team. Chris Petersen’s squad finished 11-2 overall and posted a 7-1 conference mark, good enough for a share of the Mountain West Conference title.
A 28-26 victory over the Washington Huskies in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas on December 22 signals good things for the Broncos, primarily because the Huskies are Boise State’s opponent in the 2013 season opener.
However, Boise State will need to replace 14 graduating seniors that held starting positions for the team. In some areas, such as the quarterback and wide receiver positions, the Broncos look to be in pretty good shape for next season. In others, such as the offensive line and defensive secondary, there are holes that need to be addressed.
Here is an early look at what players will fill those holes made by the departing starters. Note that the potential replacements are all part of the current team and that this projection may change once the incoming recruiting class is finalized in February.
