Overview:

Boulware had a fantastic career at Clemson, where he had 261 tackles, 26.5 for loss, and 8.0 sacks. He has good speed, he is a hard hitting linebacker, he also put up good interception numbers, and is a defensive play maker. He is also a good pass rusher, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He is a bit undersized though. With that said, I see Boulware being a day 3 pick.
