There are several Utah Utes in the mix to get selected in the 2016 NFL Draft. Let's take a look at each of them.

Running back Devontae Booker, 2nd to 5th rounder: Booker is one of those running backs you're not very sure about where he'll end up. Running back draft stock tends to vacillate from week to week, and it could all depend on what teams are looking for. Booker is a great runner who can handle multiple downs but might need to work on additional things to be a fully formed runner.

Defensive end Jason Fanaika, late rounds: Fanaika could be the latest in a long line of successful Utah front seven defenders to come out and be an impactful NFL player. Fanaika will come late, so teams will have to see what he's capable of later on, but he definitely is one of the stronger candidates to make noise in someone's backfield.
