Boise State left tackle Charles Leno and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence were both named to national watch lists Thursday.
Leno was named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the nation's best interior lineman. His unit ranked sixth overall in sacks allowed last year (.77).
Lawrence is in the early running for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, given to the country's most outstanding defensive player. Demarcus was named first-team all-Mountain West in 2012, leading the league with 9.5 sacks.
Senior tight end Gabe Linehan was named to the John Mackey watch list (best tight end) earlier this week.
