  • Reese's Senior Bowl 2018 Watch List

    BOISE, Idaho - Boise State wide receiver Cedrick Wilson and offensive tackle Archie Lewis were each named to the Reese's Senior Bowl's 2018 Watch List Thursday morning.

    For Wilson, it is the third preseason watch list to which he has been named, as he was tabbed a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award and the Paul Hornung Award earlier this summer. Thursday's announcement is the second watch list of 2017 for Lewis, who was named a candidate for the Outland Trophy in July.

    The 2018 Reese's Senior Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 27, 2018 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. MT and the game will be broadcast on NFL Network. There are 110 roster spots available between the North and South rosters.

    Previous Broncos to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl include Darian Thompson (2015), Jamar Taylor (2012), and the quintet of George Iloka, Doug Martin, Shea McClellin, Kellen Moore and Billy Winn in 2011.

    In his debut season at Boise State in 2016, Wilson caught 56 passes for 1,129 yards and a team-leading 11 touchdowns en route to being named All-Mountain West Honorable Mention. During the second half of the season, Wilson flashed his play-making abilities as part of the Bronco return game, averaging 21.3 yards per kick return and 13.2 yards over 10 punt returns, including a 73-yard return Nov. 18 against UNLV.

    He posted five 100-yard receiving games, including performances of nine catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns at New Mexico (Oct. 7) and four receptions for a season-high 193 yards and a score at Air Force (Nov. 25).

    Wilson finished the season ranked in the Mountain West top 10 in touchdown catches (third), receiving yards (fourth), receiving yards per game (86.8, fourth), receptions (sixth) and receptions per game (4.3, ninth).

    Lewis, who started all 13 games for the Broncos in 2016, was, along with the rest of the Bronco offensive line, a semifinalist for the Joe Moore Award, given to college football's top offensive line unit. The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native was part of a Bronco offensive line that last year paved the way for the Mountain West's top offense at 472.8 yards per game and helped provide protection in a passing offense that ranked 15th in the country with 298.3 passing yards per game. The Bronco tackle also helped clear a path for running back Jeremy McNichols, who ranked fifth in the country with 1,709 rushing yards and marked the eighth-straight season in which Boise State produced a 1,000-yard back.
