Nate Potter must step up vs Georgia

Boise State left tackle Nate Potter has been one of the most over-hyped prospects this offseason, with some draft analysts projecting him as a potential 1st-round pick.

Potter can prove his worth on Saturday

Potter has done an adequate job in his 21 games as a starter but he has never shown the dominant form that you would expect from a 1st-round pick playing in the WAC.

Thanks to Boise State’s relatively weak schedule, Potter will likely only have two opportunities to prove to scouts that he has elite NFL talent, and one of those chances comes this weekend against Georgia [the other being TCU].

The Bulldogs don’t have a dominant front seven, but defensive coordinator Todd Grantham runs an NFL-style 3-4 defense that is sure to throw some new looks at Potter and the Boise State offensive line. How Potter reacts could go a long way towards determining his draft stock in April.
