Boulware has good size with room to add more weight. I would not be surprised if he came in at over 300 pounds when he reports as a freshman in college. Boulware is a little bit of a waist bender and needs to add more flexibility and work on his footwork.
Boulware plays tackle, but projects to guard at the next level. He’s a good run blocker that wants to finish and put a player on his back. He is powerful at the point of attack when he fires off at the snap.
He plays a little too high can be a little stiff out of his stance, partly because he is too high in his stance. He will have to adjust and gain better flexibility. Playing with better pad level will help him fit his hands better and sustain blocks longer.
He slides naturally in his pass set, but probably doesn’t have good enough feet to play tackle. Leans forward at times, but when he is balanced, he is difficult to beat. Needs to do a better job with his punch. He is a strong player and just needs to learn how to use that strength better in pass protection.
Boulware’s best fit is for him to play in power running scheme where he can use his strength.
Boulware has the potential to develop into a very good run blocker and an effective pass protector, but he needs to improve his feet and his flexibility. If he does that, he can end up being a very good starting guard.
