Anquan Boldin Scouting Report

Share This Story

foxsports admin

Boldin was signed as a quarterback at Florida State, but switched to wide receiver his freshman year. Because he has only played the position for four years he is still a little raw. He is an excellent athlete with good size and speed. He tore his ACL in his left knee before the 2001 season but came back this year and had a solid year. He has good hands and can make some spectacular catches. He does a good job of catching passes on the run and getting up field in a hurry. On the downside, he tends to try and run before he catches the pass, so he needs to concentrate a little more. Boldin will extend his hands and catch the ball away from his body. He is an elusive runner and can start and stop in a heartbeat. He is getting better at reading coverages and finding the soft spots of zone coverages. He does a good job of coming out of his breaks and getting separation from the defensive backs. Where he needs to get better and can, is getting off the line of scrimmage. Boldin has good size and uses it to his advantage in blocking. He doesn't have great techniques but is willing to do it. Boldin is a good receiver but is such a great athlete and has so much more to learn, he is worth taking a chance on at some point in the draft. He is getting stronger and faster as he distances himself from the surgery.
