Mountain West top 50: Boise State LB Tanner Vallejo is 25th

Next on our list is Boise State linebacker Tanner Vallejo.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is here and the 25th player is Boise State Tanner Vallejo.

Now that Kamalei Correa is no longer on campus, the linebacker leader for the Broncos is Tanner Vallejo. Vallejo took a step back in his production from 2014 to 2015. His tackles for loss production dipped from 15.5 to eight as did his sacks from three to one.

The talent is there for Vallejo and maybe this year without Correa he might be able to make more plays, and this is his final year to do so.

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.
