He is quick on his feet, and is blessed with very good speed for an ILB. He is the type of player that other teams will need to play around, if they have any hopes of beating him. While many would expect him to be a flashy, cocky player, he is the exact opposite. A mild mannered, team player is exactly what Boomer embodies. He’s a true beast in the weight room and works endlessly to improve on his game.

Weaknesses: The biggest weakness with Boomer would be his lack of exposure. Coming from a Div 1-AA program, he’ll be less likely to receive national exposure. This could affect his draft stature, but shouldn’t be enough to let him slide into Day 2.

Overall Analysis: He is a great player, blessed with all of the intangibles. Speed, size, strength, attitude, instincts, technique, and leadership are all strong points associated with Boomer. He looks to be a steal for whoever happens to draft him in the coming draft.

Notes: First name is James...Prolific and highly decorated player at the I-AA level...One of the top small school sleepers in the draft.

They sure do disagree about his hitting. Sounds like a pretty good option with one of the 3rd round picks.
