NFL Draft Profile
Projected Pick: Undrafted Free Agent
Known team workouts: Cleveland, Green Bay (visited), New Orleans (visit)

From walk-on to record holder, Tyler Shoemaker can't help but continue to overachieve and exceed expectations.  Thrust into the role of being quarterback Kellen Moore's go-to-guy his senior year, all Shoemaker did was lead Boise State with 994 yards receiving and broke the school-record for touchdowns receptions in a single-season with 16.
While he didn't get invited to the Senior Bowl or NFL Combine, the Meridian-native grabbed the attention of NFL scouts at Boise State's Pro Day when he ran a 4.43 40-yard time.
Just like he has done his whole career, the moment you forget about Tyler Shoemaker, he makes he remember.
