  • 2016 NFL Scouting Combine Participant List

    BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State will be represented at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine as STUD end Kamalei Correa, offensive tackle Rees Odhiambo and safety Darian Thompson will all participate at the event.

    The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine is set to take place from Feb. 23-29 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The on-field workouts begin Feb. 26 with running backs, offensive linemen (including Odhiambo) and special teamers, while Correa will workout Feb. 28 (defensive linemen, linebackers) and Thompson will go Feb. 29 with the defensive backs.

    All three players earned All-Mountain West honors in 2015, with Odhiambo and Thompson each being named to the first team. Correa was named to the defense's second team.

    Thompson earned four All-America nods for his 2015 performance, being named a second-teamer by the FWAA and, to the Associated Press Third Team and an honorable mention by Sports Illustrated. The Bronco safety led the team with five interceptions, bringing his career total to a Mountain West-best 19, and paced the secondary with 65 tackles (37 solo). He was second on the team in tackles, and finished tied for second among all Broncos with 8.5 tackles-for-loss and a pair of forced fumbles.

    Odhiambo earned his second-straight All-MW selection (he was a second-team choice in 2014) despite missing the final five games of the season due to injury. The Bronco left tackle was on the preseason watch lists of the Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy in 2015, and helped anchor the offensive line of a Bronco offense that topped the Mountain West and ranked 15th in FBS in scoring (39.1 ppg) and total offense (501.3 ypg), while also topping the conference and ranking 16th in FBS in passing offense (309.9 ypg).

    Correa started all 13 games for Boise State in 2015, racking up 39 tackles (26 solo) along with team highs of 7.0 sacks and 11.0 tackles-for-loss. Correa's disruption from the STUD end position helped Boise State boast the nation's fifth-best rushing defense with just 108.2 rushing yards allowed per game. His contributions also helped Boise State finish 2015 12th in the FBS in total defense, allowing just 318.3 yards per game.

    The 2016 NFL Draft is scheduled for April 28-30 in Chicago.
