04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Bengals picks: Round 5/167 -- George Iloka, S, 6-4, 225, Boise State...Has the size and speed to match up with tight ends. There is plenty of competition for playing time with the only absolute being Reggie Nelson as one of the starters. - The Sports Xchange

03/24/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP DEFENSIVE BACKS: George Iloka, Boise State, 6-4, 225, 2-3...Here is another interesting combination of size, speed and strength who needs to find a position. He was listed as a free safety at the scouting combine, where he proved to be a strong free safety with 20 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Iloka also was clocked in unofficial 40-yard time of 4.66 seconds. He shows excellent skills in various zone and man coverages, and his unusual size will allow him to physically deal with the NFL's biggest wide receivers. His presence gave Boise State a lot of versatility on defense, where he started his final 45 games, lined up as both a safety and a cornerback and finished his career with 231 tackles and seven interceptions. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

01/25/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL WEDNESDAY: FS George Iloka, Boise State: At nearly 6-4 and 222 pounds, Iloka looks more like a potential linebacker than a free safety, but his athleticism and instincts have been on display all week long. He intercepted a pass during Tuesday's practice, making an impressive diving pick-off of Michigan State's Kirk Cousins in front of Massachusetts' H-back Emil Igwenagu. Iloka is not surprisingly a bit high in his back pedal but he showed surprising agility and burst when asked to drop down and cover receivers when the offense switched to a three receiver set. In a relatively weak year for safeties (outside of Alabama's Mark Barron), Iloka's size, athleticism and experience (40 consecutive starts) stand out. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/24/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL TUESDAY: S George Iloka, Boise State: Measuring at almost 6-4, 222 with above average length (nearly 34" arms), Iloka has had a very positive start to the week of practice. He has looked a bit tight when asked to cover in man and flip his hips, but he can plant and drive on the ball with good timing and ball skills. Iloka has shown the footwork and overall "feel" to match up against both receivers and tight ends so far in practice. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/30/2011 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL INVITE: Iloka, pronounced (Eye-LOKE-uh), earned first team All-Mountain West Conference honors for the Broncos from his safety position this season after tallying 58 total tackles. He was also an Honorable Mention All-America selection by the Associated Press. The Houston, Texas native was a part of a defensive unit that lead the MWC in total defense, scoring defense and rushing defense. Iloka, a three year starter, finished his career with 231 total tackles and seven interceptions. "It's definitely a great opportunity to showcase what you got especially for guys like me, Kellen, Doug and Billy coming from Boise State," Iloka said. "Obviously we don't play against some of the bigger schools and don't receive some of the media attention some of these other guys get, so it's always a great opportunity to showcase what you have against other good talents across the United States." - SeniorBowl.com

12/22/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Safety George Iloka has started at cornerback the past two games after four years as the starting free safety. The move patched the team's hole at cornerback and the Broncos limited their last two opponents to 3.5 yards per play and less than 200 yards each. Junior cornerback Jamar Taylor might return for the bowl game, but it's unclear whether they would keep Iloka at cornerback in place of true freshman Lee Hightower or slide Iloka back to safety. Pass defense will be critical against an Arizona State offense that ranks 11th in passing (310.2 yards per game). - The Sports Xchange
