Clint Boling to Cincinnati Bengals: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Adam Hirshfield@ahirshfieldFeatured ColumnistApril 30, 2011

Boling, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive lineman from Georgia, was an all-SEC first-team performer and was named an AP second-team All-American following his senior campaign in Athens.

Boling brings great intangibles to the table and won a team award for dedication to the strength and conditioning program.

The big question with Boling is where he’ll play in the NFL, as he logged time at both tackle spots and at right guard as a Bulldog.

“He's a bit of a 'tweener,” says Jeff Reynolds of The Sports Xchange, “because he hasn't proven the knee-bend or heavy anchor to excel at guard.”

But Boling thinks his versatility will help him as a pro.

“I think [playing both tackle and guard] helped a lot,” Boling said at the NFL Combine in February, “because NFL teams, they’re dressing seven or eight guys [on the offensive line] and you have to be able to play multiple positions.”
