NFL Draft 2014: Boise State C Matt Paradis drafted by the Denver Broncos

Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

Boise State center Matt Paradis was drafted by the Denver Broncos.

With the 207th pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos selected Boise State center Matt Paradis. Paradis had an excellent career at Boise State which included being named to the all-Mountain West second team as a senior. He was a mainstay in the offensive line during his time as a Bronco.

This was a surprise pick by the Broncos because Paradis was not expected to be drafted where as Utah State center Tyler Larsen who was a third-team All-American this past did not get drafted at all. Paradis likely fit into the Broncos blocking scheme since he is a versatile and athletic offensive lineman.

Paradis is a smart player and has a great burst off of the line and possibly most importantly is that he has a strong lower half and very rarely gets beat by a defender and he has the force to push back defensive tackles in the running game.

Over at Mile HIgh Report they are extremely high on this sixth round pick and expect him to make the roster and add depth to the offensive line.
