Kansas City Chiefs Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 2 - Pick Number: 58 (KC)

Seen by many as the second best inside linebacker prospect (after Micah Parsons), Bolton is explosive and can range from side to side delivering big hits. He has also proven to be effective in pass protection (though there remains work to be done and he is not the most athletic prospect). The projections around Bolton seem to vary widely, from a late first round pick to the middle of the third. Given his production in 2020 it would be surprising to see him fall too far.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
