Spring practice is finally underway for the Boise State Broncos. The team stepped onto the blue turf of Bronco Stadium for the first of 15 practices on Monday.
While there are a lot of things on the “to do” checklist during the spring, such as slimming down the offensive playbook, the ultimate goal of the limited amount of practices is to see which players have improved, which are remaining stagnant and which ones may have actually regressed in the couple of months since last season.
For the next several weeks, we’ll break down how some of the players are doing; more specifically, give a report of a few players whose stock is rising as well as some whose stock is falling.
The criterion is simple, really. Which players are having a markedly spectacular spring? Their stock will rise. The players who may not impress the coaching staff for one reason or another? A drop in their stock is inevitable.
Not just players can have a rise or fall in stock, of course. Do not be surprised if a coach, a coaching philosophy or a facility also makes the list.
In addition to the identification of the player, a brief explanation of the stock direction will be given in each slide.
Let’s take a look at the stock report after the first couple of practices.
