2011 NFL Draft Projections: Nevada Wolfpack

The Nevada Wolfpack are not yet in the Mountain West, but they have a few good players to talk about. The top prospect for Nevada is quarterback Colin Kaepernick who had a ton of buzz early in the draft process, but is now dying down a bit and is being replaced by TCU's Andy Dalton.
