Strong Points

Height and length. Very aggressive and competitive kid who plays with a nasty disposition. Gets after people in both the run and pass game. Very athletic with quick feet and better than adequate bend. Can move quickly laterally and recover back in the opposite direction. Always looks to finish blocks. Strong Combine workout from an athletic point of view.

Weak Points

Age. Will be a 25-year-old rookie. Has a very narrow frame and a little butt, lacks growth potential. A junior college transfer who has played only one year of major college football. Has only played tackle a few years. Lacks lower body strength and power. Did not lift at the Combine.

The Way We See It

A third-year junior entering the draft. Bolles was a defensive tackle in high school and has only played offensive tackle since he has been in college (three years). Very good movement skills but not a consistent bender. Can get tall and he lacks top lower body strength. He is a very aggressive player who gets after his opponents. Grades well because of his tenacity and competitive nature. I worry about his narrow frame as those types never play strong. Bolles will go high because of his athleticism and it's a very weak tackle class. He will probably go in the first and become an adequate starter in the league, but in any of the three previous drafts he would have been a second-rounder. Might not live up to expectations and age is a big concern.
