As the 2014 NFL Draft took place this past weekend, thousands of former college football players awaited their turn to be called up to the next level.
Unfortunately, there were only 256 spots in this years draft; many athletes were turned away empty handed. One player who has the honor of calling himself part of the brotherhood of draftees is former Boise State cornerback Brandyn Thompson.
Drafted in the seventh round to the Washington Redskins in 2011, Thompson was back in Boise for Alumni Weekend April 12th. Bronco Nation News was fortunate enough to catch up with Thompson to talk about his career at Boise State and in the NFL.
From the new coaching staff to the $22 million Gene Bleymaier Football Complex, Thompson was more than ecstatic to see the road his alma mater has taken since his departure.
*Note – since the interview, Thompson has been signed to the Ottawa Redblacks of the Canadian Football League
