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.
