Veach drafts the best possible replacement available: ďNO! NOT LIKE THAT!!Ē

Iím exaggerating a bit, but still.

This dude is going to take all of Niemannís coverage snaps? Doubt it.

Those two guys alone are really more than I expected in one offseason. Add in Jarran Reed and Veach gets an A+++.

If Bolton and any other selection can make an impact in 2021 and beyond, even better.

If we roll out the Clark-Reed-Pennel-Jones line like some Chiefs writers are thinking...

Good luck, opposing OLís!

Iím not hating. But this was very ďmehĒ to me. Like I wasnít excited.

Hope Iím wrong obviously bc he apparently is smart as hell and can replace Hitch. Just my 2 cents

After the Speaks pick, Veach said the guy was so powerful he was never on the ground. And that was followed by the famous clip of Speaks waving at the camera from the ground.

It is nothing like that. Speaks looks liked slow motion in his highlight tape versus Bolton.

I don't think Pennel is on the team anymore.

Not even close. Speaks was overdrafted and we traded up for him which made it worse. This is a lower risk pick at a position we needed to upgrade

Watch his tape. This guy flies all over the field and has a nose for the ball. Bolton delivers the thump and is a sure tackler. Some had him rated in the top 20 players of this draft. Bolton is damn good football player and will help improve our defense.

I’m assuming he’s brought back cheap in a down cap year. It may not happen, but that line is fun to think about.

Nonetheless, a line of Clark-Reed-Nnadi-Jones is still a wrecking ball of a line.

Yeah, it wouldn't be surprising to see him back on a one year deal.

And as we all know, Veach is just getting started this offseason because once the draft is over, he'll be scouring rosters for potential cuts and trades.

I will say this about Nick Bolton.

As a Mizzou fan, he was one of the only elite players on our defense the last couple years.

Despite heavy focus being put on keeping him away from the play by opposing offenses, he was still highly productive each and every week.

He's a gamer, a highly cerebral, PHYSICAL player. He will make our defense better. I don't know if he will ever be an all pro, but I think he will if nothing else be a really solid player for us.

Melvin Ingram is still out there too.

So many folks love to downplay the importance of good line-backers and it's naive imo. We saw first hand in the SB how they can impact the game and the best defenses always have guys in the middle who can fly around, cover and go side to side. Gay and Bolton will be the most athletic duo we've ever had in the middle of the field probably and Nick is said to be a good leader too. So I'm happy with this pick...he looks similar to Devin Bush to me.

Chris Meck 04-30-2021 08:48 PM

alright. Killer value. I'm into it.

If we get that at end of the second then Iím happy.

And CEH.
