Boise State standout left tackle Ezra Cleveland announced Tuesday that he will bypass his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

Cleveland, a three-year starter, is a two-time All-Mountain West first-team selection. He started all 40 games in which he played for the Broncos.

“I loved everything about my experience at Boise State,” Cleveland told the Idaho Press. “I just think it’s time for me to take that next step in my football career.”

Cleveland (6-6, 310) is rated as a prospect likely to be picked in the second or third round of a draft filled with standout offensive tackles.

Boise State is also bracing for a decision from star pass rusher Curtis Weaver, who holds the Mountain West record of 34 career sacks.
