Analysis:

What impressed me most about Ted Bolser was his blocking and effort. He uses his large frame to overpower defenders. Even if Bolser missed a block, he still tried to chase him down. If Bolser pancaked someone, he was looking for the second victim.

For a guy his size, Bolser is very athletic. At his pro day, Bolser ran a 4.75 40-yard dash which would have been the sixth best among tight ends at the NFL Scouting Combine. He has soft hands and uses his long arms to snatch balls. In the red zone, Bolser is a dominant presence because of his size.

Negatives:

Bolser has small hands, although they do not seem to impact his catching ability. He is not very elusive or explosive. Bolser only benched 225 pounds 19 times at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Final Verdict:

Bolser will probably end up being a priority free agent where he could be a steal. It will take some time to develop him, but he has the size, speed, hands and motivation to become a starter in the NFL.
