The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is here and the 37th player is another player from Utah State in offensive lineman Jake Simonich.

Simonich was named to the conferences first-team all-league selection by the media and was a post-season honorable mention player the past two years. This could be the year he makes a leap to being one of the best in the league.

He also will be responsible for keeping the running game going with Devante Mays

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.
