BOISE — It was the moment that former Boise State running back Jeremy McNichols had been waiting for since elementary school. "It's going to be crazy," McNichols said with a smile prior to the 2017 NFL Draft. "I'm probably going to be a little emotional because I know all the ups and downs, and there's been a lot of downs. Just finally making it to my dreams and experiencing it with my family and my friends is going to be a moment I'll never forget." McNichols and company likely had to be a little more patient than expected this weekend, but one could argue it was worth the wait. With the 162nd overall pick, the Tampa Buccaneers came calling, and selected McNichols with their fifth round pick.
