Overview

Boling's a prospect with a lot of starting experience at both guard and tackle who profiles best as an NFL guard. A savvy, maximum-effort guy who could find a home with a franchise that values technique and mobility up front above pure strength. Has great awareness and understands the finer points of line play. Is comfortable when zone blocking or matched up against speed rushers or gap penetrators in pass protection. Isn't going to blow defenders off the ball and stand his ground against the bull rush. Experienced, versatile and durable, Boling could come off the board in the third round.


Strengths

Boling possesses very good mobility. Clearly a guy who passes attention in the film room. Plays with a high compete level and displays some nastiness. Does a good job with his hands and feet against speed rushers. Comfortable when zone blocking and gets in good position. Very durable and experienced.

Weaknesses

Lacks the height and bulk to stick at tackle in the NFL. Power rushing defensive ends give him a lot of trouble. Needs to show more consistency anchoring and sinking his hips. Doesn't get good movement in the downhill running game. Had one documented off-the-field issue.

Grade

7.2
