I can't believe we got him. He is going to add such a fierce energy to our defense.

Youíd think Allegretti will have some value as cheap depth with C/G versatility and starting experience. Maybe a 6th?

Not interested in a draft pick, I'd rather get a player

He's not going to Dorian O'Daniel on you.

He's smart, and instinctive. He's not going to suck.

Right.

The kid just really doesn't have any serious flaws.

Exactly.

This kid has an incredibly high football IQ and a nose for the ball. He's not some dumbass who makes the roster by just happening to be a high level athlete.

He's the exact kind of linebacker you want to be your QB of the defense. Smart, Physical and Tough. It's a bit of an old school pick but quite frankly our defense could use some old school toughness.

After reading up on him how did he last till 58? He seems like an awesome player and someone who can play all 3 downs

He was the BPA on multiple outlets when we picked him and was considered a potential late first by a few. And he was at a position of severe need.

As far as value goes, we really could not have done any better.

Bolton reminds me of Demario Davis. That's a good thing.

People get too caught up on combine numbers. The combine for the most part doesn't matter. He's going to bring more nastiness to the D and I love it. Can't wait to see him crush a few RBs.

Urc Burry 05-01-2021 05:25 AM

Yeah the athleticism is definitely over blown. He has better measurable than Lavonte David who is still kicking ass at 31. The Willie Gayís of the world are so rare. And those that have Gayís athleticism with more and better film just arenít going to make it to where we pick. See Jamin Davis

anyone think Bolton could simply take Niemann’s role this year?

He’s clearly really smart and more athletic, physical than Niemann. Why not? I think that’d be a great role for his rookie year if they don’t trust Gay to call the defense out of the dime.

I’ll tell ya, I’m REALLY tired of the analytics horseshit regarding the LB position being devalued..

Easiest way to make it clear you don’t understand football. Linebackers have to play both run and pass unlike any other player out there on defense. Just think of the great defenses of the past 15-20 years and how many of them included incredible linebackers.

Just something that grinds my gears from some Chiefs analysts.

I think you mean "devalued"

But yes I completely agree with you

Willie Lanier 05-01-2021 06:11 AM

And I'm really high on this kid

I donít see why not. Niemann knows the scheme in and out Iím sure, but thatís about the only advantage he has.

Itís not like Niemann really does anything all that well. Heís bad at just about everything. Even if Bolton struggles a bit at first, is that any worse than Niemann?

Thatís my POV.

Even if Bolton or Gay have their own flaws, donít they have to be better than Niemann at this point for the dime? Gay should know the defense better and Bolton will catch on quick.
