In 2006, Black was predicted by Mel Kiper Jr., a celebrated NFL Draft analyst, as one of the top senior linebacker prospects in the country. He led the Mountain West Conference with 94 tackles, had an impressive 42-inch vertical leap on Pro Day, and solidified his position in the NFL Draft as a mid-round prospect.
