Bolden is a powerful runner who not only can break through arm tackles, but usually will run through the first defender. He is decisive to hit the hole as an inside runner and is patient for his blocks to develop. He can get low and hide behind blockers before sticking his foot in the ground to either move hard laterally or up the field to burst through to the second level. He looks good when initiating a hard drop step to bounce outside, and once there can outrun defenders to the perimeter. Bolden is reliable both in taking care of the ball and gaining yards with power or speed.


Most concerns about Bolden surround his past suspensions and not his ability to carry the ball. Although he is big and physical, he can look haphazard at times when pass protecting; this facet of his game needs to improve before he sees a lot playing time early in his career.
