Default Boone, Boone, Boone!

Was anyone as impressed with Ohio State's LT Alex Boone as was I? As a Ryan Clady fan (Boise State), I watched Boone for three quarters before bedtime (hey, I was sleepy ok?) Alex seemed to control his man and was often found way beyond the line of scrimmage on runs and seemed to be able to slide his feet well in past defense. His size of 6'7" 325lbs compares well with Clady 6'5" 320 and to Sam Baker 6'4" 310. Unfortunately, Clady and Boone are the only two left tackles I've watched.

Default Re: Boone, Boone, Boone!

I really was impessed with him and he really helped out on that 65 yard TD run of wells. He got to the next level and sealed of a LB, I was glad to see that b/c it shows he's got the ability to run and block which is critical in our offense.

Anybody know if he has declared? (i think he's a junior?) And/or what is the liklihood he would declare?

He's a guy i'm excited about and would def. give him consideration but not sure where he projects from late late 1st, 2nd round??

Boone is rated at#31 per best 50 per below link.
http://www.draftinsiders.com/node/242

To my knowledge he has not declared but may after last night's game. He seemed to continue after his block even in the 3rd quarter.

I have been touting him on another board for a most of the season. He is still below Clady, but he has a higher upside.

I think he's has a smaller miss factor playing in the Big 10 and the Big Bowl game .

He's a great run blocker. and if you're telling me you going to take him for rt...OK. I'd rather have Loadholt over there but OK.

He got beat by speed all night long. His feet are slow and he reaches with his waist instead of bending at the knees and kick sliding. He will get lit up in our division on the left side. It's just that simple.

Collins and Oher on the other hand...they can move thier feet. So can Clady but he'll be off the board with in ten picks. You can teach someone to run block. You can get them stronger in the upper body. You can't teach quickness.

Hmm good insight... Winston is staying on the Right side isn't he? Do you think Kubiak has played with the idea of trying him at LT during practice or in the offseason to see what options we have?

I think Erick is the most athletic lineman thay have. I think Kubiak wants four more just like him.

Isn't this where someone plays the "short arms" card to stop the Winston to LT talk??

I thought Boone played a lot like Long but he looks bigger .

In our division you have to be quick enough for Freeney , strong enough for Spicer, and mean enough for KVB .

Winston should spend the offseason hanging from a (well, he'd probably crush the swingset) tree or something.

Interesting article on Boone in Sports Illustrated. I do not recall his drinking being issue. But article says he attends AA.

Not to argue but I did not see him get beat "all night long". I do not recall seeing him give up a sack in the 3 quarters I watched.
