Despite injuring his left knee as a high school senior one season after earning All-State honors in Alabama, Bozeman was offered by the top programs in the country. He stayed in-state, redshirting in 2013 to get his knee healthy, and then playing in nine games in 2014, starting two when future first-round pick Ryan Kelly was injured. Kelly played every game as a senior, limiting Bozeman to a reserve role at guard and center, as well as special teams units. Bozeman stepped in for the current Indianapolis Colt admirably in 2016, starting all 15 games. He garnered second-team All-SEC honors in his senior season, starting all 14 games for the national champs. His ability to move the line of scrimmage while also moving to second-level targets allowed the Tide to move the ball efficiently through the ground and air. Bozeman made headlines by proposing to his girlfriend after the Tide's win in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.

Overview
Bozeman comes from a winning program where work ethic and toughness are hardly optional and he faced NFL-level competition in practice every day. His size is a big check mark in his favor, but he will be very limited by his lack of athletic ability. Bozeman's ceiling may be as low-level starter, but he has to find the right team.
Strengths
  • Big and girthy
  • Carries desired size NFL teams are looking for in centers
  • Shows an ability to generate some initial movement when gallop stepping and landing a shoulder into his double team blocks
  • Plays with desired level of toughness
  • Adequate working combo blocks
  • Will adjust his schedule and look for work when initial assignment voids
  • Hand placement generally solid
  • Core strength is okay
Weaknesses
  • Step to snap quickness is slow
  • Takes too much time getting into down blocks and may let gap shooters leak in on next level
  • Doesn't have the feet to push defenders out of the play once they get to his edge
  • Won't unleash as much power from hips as frame would suggest
  • Down blocks lack pop
  • Lacks athletic ability to consistently get to reach blocks and second level targets
  • Will get discarded by nose tackles with quick hands
  • Bull rushers can reset his anchor
