Garett Boles

Strengths:

  • Athletic
  • Quick feet
  • Plays with mean streak
  • Outstanding change of direction

Analysis: Garett Boles is shooting up draft boards due to his elite athletic ability. He has the sweetest feet at the tackle position in this draft. Movement skills are smooth and unencumbered. There isn’t an angle block he can’t get to. Smooth climbs to linebackers as a work-up blocker, and has rare ability to accelerate from that block up to a third target. Has lateral quickness in run game to cross-face from backside and seal on the play-side. Can meet edge speed with quick sets in pass pro. Plays with a mean streak and loves to finish. Outstanding change of direction to mirror without a hitch in his transition. Keeps weight on inside foot in his slides. Moves feet into position against inside counters. Balanced in his pass sets and keeps blocks centered. Should get bigger and stronger with more weight work after unorthodox path to the draft.

Weaknesses:

  • Frame is narrow
  • Lacks drive power in legs
  • Inconsistent sustaining blocks
  • Needs to anchor quicker

Analysis: Garett Boles has a frame that is a little narrow and his legs appear to be shorter than normal. He needs better knee bend into second-level contact. Inconsistent in sustaining his blocks. Power can toss him off balance. May be limited by scheme fit. Needs to keep hands inside to bolster strength in his base. Gives initial ground against power and doesn’t always anchor quickly. Will be 25 years old by opening of fall camp.

What the scouts say: “Most athletic offensive lineman I’ve done since I took over this area of the country. He’s also mean on the field, which you love. I’m projecting him to get stronger once he locks into an NFL strength-and-conditioning program. He’s underdeveloped right now. What you see isn’t what you are going to ultimately get, in my opinion.”
