Yesterday I told you where last year's Boise State Broncos football players were playing in the NFL this year. Today, I'll let you know where all of the high-profile and active former Broncos play this season. Many have changed teams, and with very little hype in this year's offseason, unless we talk about Tom Brady, all free agency moves were easy to miss.
Matt Paradis came to Boise State as a defensive lineman, but in the NFL, he's been playing center. Drafted by the Denver Broncos, he signed as a free agent with the Carolina Panthers last year.
Charles Leno Jr. was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the last round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He has worked his way into the starting Left Tackle position, and while the quarterback position might be up in the air, his job is safe.
Tyrone Crawford was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2012. He made an immediate impact on the team and continues to start at the Right Defensive End spot.
Demarcus Lawerence plays opposite Tyrone Crawford at the starting Left Defensive End position for the Dallas Cowboys. He's been in that spot since he was drafted in 2014.
Darian Thompson is another starter on the Dallas Cowboys defense. The Strong Safety was initially drafted by the New York Giants. He spent a season on the Arizona Cardinals practice squad before being picked up by Dallas as a free agent in 2018.
Leighton Vander Esch has pretty much been the leader of the Dallas Cowboys defense ever since he was drafted in the first round in 2018. He anchors the squad from his Middle Linebacker position.
