Overview

Boren has a chance to become a starting offensive guard in the NFL and will likely serve as a valuable backup early on because of his experience. Uses his hands well in pass protection is a stout against the bull rush but will be challenged versus agile defensive tackles with some moves in their arsenal. Productive run blocker who plays tough and can move defenders off the ball at times but is only adequate in space and needs to refine his footwork. Plays angry on the field but his mental makeup is in question after a transfer from Michigan. Day 3 prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Boren has a solid combination of mobility and bulk. Has strong, violent hands. Capable of anchoring against the bull rush. Will push defenders backwards and get some movement when positioning and hand placement are good. Shows good blitz awareness. Plays with a mean streak and on-field effort is impressive.

Weaknesses

Lacks height and length. Has trouble mirroring quicker interior pass rushers. Leans, lunges and struggles to sustain blocks at times. Only possesses adequate athleticism and will take some false steps. Character is in question after departure from Michigan mainly due to a new conditioning regimen and change in program atmosphere.
