8/19/2005

Editor's note: ESPN.com's Mel Kiper Jr. continues his look at the most important players on each Division I-A team with his lists of the five most important players on each team in the Western Athletic Conference (schools listed in alphabetical order).

Boise State Broncos

1. Jared Zabransky, QB, jr. -- Has gotten bigger and stronger but still needs to get a little stronger. Did an outstanding job as a sophomore, though, leading the Broncos to an 11-1 record.
2. Darren Colledge, LT, sr. -- One of the best pass-blocking tackles in the nation. Colledge has good weight room strength but still needs to become a bit more explosive as a run blocker. If he does he will be a high NFL draft pick.
3. Derek Schouman, TE, jr. -- Battled a knee injury last year and does not have great size, but his hands are soft and he knows how to make plays.
4. Lee Marks, RB, sr. -- Only 5-foot-7, 180 pounds, but he runs hard and can catch the ball out of the backfield. Is relied upon heavily in this offense.
5. Corey Hall, MLB, jr. -- Undersized at 6-0, 228, but is very strong and fast and has the ability to cover backs out of the backfield.
