- Coordinated when moving to the second level as a run blocker, capable of landing blocks on the move.
- A smooth mover and covers a lot of ground, working hard to mirror rushers; agile and keeps his feet moving.
- Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.

Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s going to have an awful time with speed rushers if asked to block on an island; he’s likely going to need help on the edge regardless.
- Doesn’t display the agility and speed to effectively get around as a pulling guard. Bostick generally struggles in space, and Bostick will have a tough time consistently landing blocks on the second level
- More of a waist bender with subpar feet, and he too often ends up reaching and lunging when going against quickness.
