  Draft Scout by Conference









  Improving the running game means dependable depth in the backfield. The Broncos learned that the hard way last fall after they lost starting running back George Holani to a knee injury in the second game of the season and ended the year ranked last in the Mountain West with 107.1 rushing yards a game. Boise State was also without junior college transfer Taequan Tyler, who missed last season with an Achilles tendon injury he suffered in the preseason, and veteran running back Robert Mahone, who was suspended after an arrest for domestic battery and eventually left the team.

Tyler is expected to be full go in camp, and the Broncos hope to have addressed the lack of depth in the backfield with the addition of former Oregon running back Cyrus Habibi-Likio. He's one of six transfers who joined the team this year and has a chance to see the field early. Habibi-Likio left Oregon with 21 career rushing touchdowns. He was used primarily as a short-yardage back, but Boise State running backs coach Winston Venable isn't putting any limits on what he can do for the Broncos. "He has a bigger build, but he moves really well," Venable said. "He's not just a big, bruising running back. He's very agile, and he's a versatile player who can catch the ball out of the backfield." - Idaho Statesman
