Tadman (5’11, 182-pounds) earned second-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors last season, and has been named to the Preseason All-WAC team by The Sporting News and Blue Ribbon. He was also named a Preseason All-American by NationalChamps.net, and the 10th-best free safety in the country by The Sporting News. Tadman led the Broncos with five interceptions last season and finished second on the team in tackles with 101.
“Marty Tadman has looked very, very solid all camp,” Petersen said. “He’s like a quarterback in the secondary. He is always in the right spot, he has great instincts and he has been doing a good job with punt returning duties as well.”
