Draft analyst Chad Reuter did his latest mock draft for NFL.com, and he had two Utes and two Cougars being selected in the four rounds.

He had Utah's Garett Bolles landed at No. 20 to the Denver Broncos, saying, "John Elway needs a reliable pass protector to keep Paxton Lynch (or Tony Romo?) upright."

Reuter had two Cougars coming off the board next with running back Jamaal Williams being taken in the third round by the Oakland Raiders with the No. 88 overall pick. Linebacker Harvey Langi was next on the list, going to the New England Patriots at No. 96.

The last player from Utah in the mock draft from the Utes was safety Marcus Williams, who landed with the Patriots in the fourth round with the No. 132 overall pick.

Brad Rowland of Dime Magazine released his Week 19 NBA Power Rankings where he had the Jazz coming in at No. 5.

Speaking of the Jazz, he wrote, "The Jazz are cooking a little bit after winning five of six. The lone blemish was defensible in that it came on the road in OKC and, for the most part, Utah at full strength has been highly impressive this season. Until they make a dent in a playoff situation, the doubters will exist but this is a dominant defensive team with enough talent to sustain offense and the casual fan hasn’t caught up just yet."
