Cedrick Wilson was only with the Boise State Broncos for two seasons, but the imprint he made should last for years.
Wilson is prepping for the next level, currently showcasing his work ethic, attitude and skills at the Senior Bowl.
Over the years, a lot of emphasis has been placed on the great running backs Boise State has produced. From Eron Hurley to Brock Forsey; from Ian Johnson to Doug Martin to the Super Bowl bound Jay Ajayi, a stable of Boise State running backs have dominated for 20 seasons now.
It’s time for the wide receivers to get some love. And Wilson is just the latest in a long line of stars who have contributed over the years.
From Tim Gilligan to Jeremy Childs; from Legedu Naanee to Austin Pettis to Titus Young. Throw in Matt Miller and Thomas Sperbeck and we have the beginning of an entire fleet of talented receivers. (And this doesn’t even include the tight end position.)
Wilson is one of seven receivers on the North squad for the upcoming game. And if anything is to glean from the items coming out of practice, Wilson is doing things Bronco fans grew accustomed to over the past two years:

Wilson is great at not only catching footballs in tight windows and in traffic, he is reliable. Despite injuries, Wilson dominated the Oregon game and even bailed out his quarterback from bad passes on occasion the past two seasons.
Even in his limited time, the receiver became a Bronco legend.
