Earlier we looked at five 2016 skill players to watch. We can’t forget the big guys and the guys on defense, and the 2016 class has its fair share of top players in those positions.
Here are five non-skill position players to watch:
OT Parker Boudreaux
After turning in an impressive performance at February’s Nike NFTC (4.48 shuttle at 270-pounds), Boudreaux headed into the spring with the attention of college coaches. He steadily filled out his frame over the summer and is now 283 pounds entering his junior season. Boudreaux now has more than 30 offers and we expect a dominating fall in the trenches.
Scouts edge: Boudreaux can be a physical and tenacious blocker. He’s a promising O-Line prospect with excellent size at this stage that could develop at guard or tackle. Boudreaux needs to continue to improve in areas like pad level, but when he locks on, he has the strength to drive defenders back while displaying above average lateral agility that can make his a strong pass-protector as well as a versatile run blocker.
