2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Nick Bolton

Nick Bolton brings the heat when it comes to highlights: big hits, flying ankle tackles, and more. His unbelievable hit power will keep audiences, not to mention players, always on the lookout for his next tackle attempt. With some major red flags in his tackling consistency, there are unfortunately some unforgettable negatives that keep him out of contention from being a top-tier linebacker. Fortunately for Bolton, the 2021 NFL Draft lacks talent at the top of the linebacker class. He nicely slots in as a guaranteed top five, if not top three linebackers in this year’s class.

2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Malik Cunningham

Malik Cunningham is the most intriguing quarterback prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. He has the running ability of Lamar Jackson, but he acts as a quarterback that can run, not a running back that can throw. Being part of the most unique offense arguably in the country, Cunningham is the most difficult prospect to project to the next level, as no team in the NFL has the speed that Louisville uses to overwhelm its opponents. His surprising accuracy, countered by his scheme dependent decision making, combines with his athleticism to create the most confusing projection arguably in the history of the NFL draft at the quarterback position. In the right scheme with the correct coaching, Cunningham can become a lethal Swiss army knife.

Moore projects well into any scheme in need of a dynamic, versatile slot weapon.
