Saints signed Boise State C Marcus Henry.

Henry (6'3/300) made 39 starts for the Broncos, earning first-team All-WAC honors as both a junior and senior. With short arms (32") and small hands (8 7/8"), Henry is a center-only prospect, albeit a decent one with adequate athleticism and a competitive, gritty playing demeanor. Snubbed for a Combine invite and a career overachiever, Henry has a chance to overcome his physical limitations on sheer will.

Seahawks selected Boise State OG Rees Odhiambo with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Odhiambo (6'4/314) made 25 starts at Boise State, manning the blind side and earning first-team All-Mountain West as a senior. That was despite fracturing his ankle eight games into the 2015 season. Injury riddled, Odhiambo never played a full season. When healthy, Odhiambo is a heavy-handed power player whose game may fit best inside in the NFL. Odhiambo's poor Pro Day numbers suggest he's still in the recovery process.

Giants selected Boise State S Darian Thompson with the No. 71 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Thompson (6'1/208) made 44 starts for the Broncos, piling up 15 tackles for loss and a school-record 19 interceptions, and earning third-team All-America honors as a senior. He sent up athletic red flags at the Combine, running 4.69 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical. Although he was a ballhawk in the Mountain West, Thompson was burned for ten touchdown passes over his final three years and lacks the range and length to hold up in NFL pass coverage. He's an undersized box safety with a questionable fit in the league.

Ravens selected Boise State OLB Kamalei Correa with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Correa (6'3/243) started 27 games for the Broncos, tallying 31.5 career tackles for loss, 20 sacks, and five forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-Mountain West in 2014 and second-team accolades last year, before turning pro. Correa's Combine was okay-not-great, running 4.69 with a 33-inch vertical and disappointing 9-foot broad jump. Correa is a lightweight, high-effort pass rusher with some explosion to his game, but lacks a power element and needs to refine his technique. He may be a year or two away from challenging for consistent snaps behind Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, and Za'Darius Smith.

An NFL scout who spoke with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, "I thought [Boise State OL Rees Odhiambo] was nasty."

"Excellent strength, tenacity, finish. I thought he was nasty. Strong lower body. Good short set and hands-on anchor. Very good player," the scout said. Odhiambo's real stock killer might be his health. As another evaluator noted, "He never completed a full season. It's serious stuff." Odhiambo suffered a season-ending ankle injury in October, one which required surgery. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote in early April that if healthy, he has the talent of a top-75 pick. If he slides, it will almost certainly be because of health.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that of late, the Jets have been "poking around" Boise State edge rusher Kamalei Correa.

"Correa perfectly fits the Jets need for a pass-rushing linebacker and comes with the athleticism and skill to drop off the line then play in space," Pauline noted. "The 20th pick of Round 1, which the Jets presently own, is about the starting point for consideration of Correa." Earlier in the week, the analyst relayed that the Colts would consider the 6-foot-3, 243-pounder at No. 18 if Leonard Floyd is already off the board. Noah Spence could be in play for the Colts, too, if they can stomach the off-field question marks.

The Colts will consider Boise State edge rusher Kamalei Correa in Rd. 1 if Leonard Floyd is gone and Noah Spence is deemed too big of a risk, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Another scenario for Correa has the New Orleans Saints trading down in the first round then selecting the Boise State junior," Pauline wrote. "Last year, there was speculation the Saints were trying to trade up for Vic Beasley, a similar type of player." The Colts, in need of defensive front fortification, are basically considering all options at this point. NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah has called Correa "a poor man's Clay Matthews."

Boise State junior QB Ryan Finley will transfer.

Finley will wait until after he graduates in May, allowing him to play immediately wherever he winds up. Basically, he was Wally Pipp'd at BSU. The Broncos starter until suffering a broken ankle, Finley looked on as Brett Rypien ran away with the job in an impressive freshman showing. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder should have two seasons of eligibility left.

NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah called Boise State edge rusher Kamalei Correa "a poor man's Clay Matthews."

"Correa is one of my favorite players to watch among this year's prospects. He has a lot of production as a pass rusher," Jeremiah said on the Move the Sticks podcast. The analyst cited the "shock" present in the 6-foot-3, 243-pounder's hands when it comes to corralling the run game before he offered his comp, saying, "As a prospect, I liken him to a poor man's Clay Matthews. I think his best football is ahead of him." Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Correa visited the Saints and 49ers over the weekend.

Boise State edge rusher Kamalei Correa visited the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers over the weekend, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-3, 243-pounder has been making the rounds on the pre-draft visitation circuit. He's a highly athletic and projectable edge rusher -- a valuable profile if there ever was one -- but is inconsistent on the field.
Apr 11 - 2:04 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt compared Boise State C/G Marcus Henry to Denver Broncos C Matt Paradis.

The 6-foot-2 5/8, 299-pound Henry once replaced Paradis along the BSU line. "Henry didn't go unnoticed by the representatives from all 32 NFL teams [at Boise State's Pro Day]," Brandt wrote. "He's a tough, hard-nosed player, and very strong." Henry came into last season on the Lombardi, Outland and Rimington watch lists and ended it on the All-Mountain West First Team. Despite all that, Henry was snubbed from the Combine. Brandt thinks that sets the stage for a draft day steal.

Boise State OL Rees Odhiambo is scheduled to visit the Vikings and Bucs and has a private workout scheduled with the Saints, according to Ian Rapoport.

Our own Josh Norris has compared Odhiambo to longtime NFL starter Travelle Wharton due to his play style and likely position switch from left tackle to guard. Odhiambo suffered a broken ankle in late October, so that piece of the evaluation will need to be cleared. He has the talent to play early in the NFL.
Apr 5 - 9:21 AM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Colts and Browns are both showing interest in Boise State CB Donte Deayon.

In addition to the Colts and Browns sniffing around Deayon as a draft commodity, Pauline notes that the 5-foot-9, 159-pounder also has a visit to the Giants' facilities on his upcoming schedule. During Thursday's Pro Day, the diminutive defensive dynamo notched a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-7 broad jump. His 40-yard dash times came home at 4.42 seconds and 4.47 seconds. Per Pauline, he looked "terrific" in position drills. Some squads will throw demerits his way on their boards due to his size, but outside of that drawback, he makes for an interesting sleeper corner prospect.
Apr 2 - 4:17 PM

Boise State S Darian Thompson indicated that even after his slow 40-yard dash time at the NFL Scouting Combine, he felt little pressure.

Thompson slogged his way through illness in Indianapolis to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds. He was happy he had the testing net that is Pro Day to fall back on. Said the 6-foot-2, 208-pounder, "It was never really something I worried about, because I knew I had pro day, and I came out here and capitalized today, I think." Capitalized, indeed. Thompson's Pro Day 40's came in at a much more respectable 4.53 seconds and 4.55 seconds. In general, he seems pretty over all of this pre-draft pomp-and-circumstance. "I’ve never been a great tester my whole life," Thompson said, "but I know how to play football." He indicated that he has a meeting with the Steelers set for next week and will also be working out for the Panthers.
Apr 2 - 4:05 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that Boise State T Rees Odhiambo (ankle) "struggled in the [Pro Day] testing."

It shouldn't be counted as a huge surprise that Odhiambo had his issues. A season-ending ankle injury suffered in October forced a surgery which has sidelined the 6-foot-4, 314-pounder for most of the pre-draft process. To whit, the lone event he took part in at the Combine was the bench press, which saw him put in 23 reps. Unofficially on Pro Day, he worked a 37-inch vertical jump, 4.70 seconds in the short shuttle, 7.89 seconds in the three-cone drill and 7-foot-9 in the broad jump. While those numbers are less than shiny, analyst Pauline did note that Odhiambo "looked good in position drills." Medical rechecks in Indianapolis later this month could help to boost his mid-round draft stock by degrees.
