Typical haters in here that wanted a receiver. We have 2 elite targets in HIll and Kelce and this new offensive line will make any #3 and #4 look good with Mahomes and the Defense not being able to drop 7-8 every down...

Undersized and not real fast either. I dont like the pick but the Chiefs have time to coach him up. Im sure they know a lot more than me.

Minimize expectations, this kid isn't a freak like Thornhill.

Andy Reid went out of his way to talk about how smart Bolton is.

He's going to be calling the defense once Hitchens is gone.

That's a really, really important piece.

I just canít get excited about this with basham still on the board. I get it, but Iím hurt.

Here are the pro's from my draft guide, tell me whats not to like...

Bolton is a fast flowing LB who seems to thrive of collisions - either with the ball carrier or his blockers. His physical style and football character are off the charts. Diagnoses and attacks downhill, looking for the shortest path to the ball. He moves with a suddenness that often catches blockers on their heels. He has plenty of pop as a tackler despite his relatively small size. His pure speed allows him to get sideline to sideline as well as closing as a blitzer

Cons - mostly vague complaints about his short stature at 6'0, arm length, and ability to cover big TE's

Someone should've told Mike Singletary he wasn't big enough to whip ass...

^This^ we can't pay Hitchens money to a LB in 2022

Not seeing a lot of drag down tackles in his highlights... seems like a hard hitter in fact!!!!

I don’t care about the 40 time and other measurables.

Dude FLIES around the field and hits like a ****ing truck.

I feel like we got a Derrick Johnsonish player here

He got picked before us didn't he?

NM was thinking Creed sorry

You guys are way overblowing LB athleticism. He ran a 4.59.

Fred Warner ran a 4.64
Lavonte David ran a 4.65
CJ Mosley ran a 4.64
Darius Leonard ran a 4.70
Eric Kendricks ran a 4.61

Not like you guys wouldn't take those guys on the team.

I'd have liked to see his jumps a little better, but its not bad or out of range too far from most of those guys. He can run just as well as them. And he hits like a truck.

He's a natural middle linebacker, he's not going to cover TE's a whole lot at all.

That's kind of silly.

It also bodes well for him getting on the field faster than Gay did last year.
