                BOISE, Idaho - Jamar Taylor will be Boise State's lone representative at this year's Senior Bowl all-star game, which kicks off tomorrow (Jan. 26) at 2 p.m. (MT) in Mobile, Alabama.

                Taylor is a member of the North squad and will be wearing jersey number 21.  The game will be televised live by the NFL Network. 

                A first-team All-Mountain West selection in 2012, Taylor was a three-year starter for the Broncos and finished his career with 137 tackles (93 unassisted) and seven interceptions.  He also made 11 tackles for loss and four quarterback sacks for Boise State.

                This past season (2012) Taylor ranked fourth on the team for total tackles with 51, a single season career high.  During his senior season he led the team in interceptions with a career high four and in pass breakups with another career high of nine.

                Taylor played for the Broncos as a true freshman in 2008 making 24 tackles and one interception.  Following a red-shirt season in 2009, Taylor moved into the starting lineup in 2010 and helped Boise State to a three-year record of 35-4, two league championships (WAC in 2010 and Mountain West in 2012) and three straight victories in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

                This is the fourth straight year a Bronco has played in the Senior Bowl. 

Cornerback Kyle Wilson (New York Jets) played in the 2009 game, wide receivers Austin Pettis (St. Louis Rams) and Titus Young (Detroit Lions) competed in the 2010 game and a record five Broncos - safety George Iloka (Cincinnati Bengals), running back Doug Martin (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), defensive end Shea McClellin (Chicago Bears), quarterback Kellen Moore (Detroit Lions) and defensive tackle Billy Winn (Cleveland Browns). 

                Wilson, McClellin and Martin all went on to become first round NFL Draft selections.
