Three former Boise State Broncos heard their names called during the 2014 NFL draft.
Defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, the first Bronco to be selected, was taken by the Dallas Cowboys with the second pick of the second round.
Center Matt Paradis went to the Denver Broncos in the sixth round, while offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. was picked by the Chicago Bears in the seventh round.
These three talented players now leave a large hole on the roster back in Boise. Replacing each one of them will be a challenge, and it will take a special player (or players) to do the job.
Let's look at the most likely candidates who will attempt to fill the void these three future NFL players left behind at Boise State.
