Prospect Profile: Kevin Boothe
Full Name: Kevin Boothe School: Cornell Pos: G Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 316 40: 5.41 Year: 5Sr Bio: Three-year starter who's been used at both guard and blind-side tackle. All-League performer who also received All-American mention as a senior. Pos: Nasty, dominant blocker best in a small area. Works to play with good pad level, fights throughout the action and controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack. Quick into blocks, makes effective use of angles and consistently keeps defenders in front of him. Easily rides oncoming rushers from their angle of attack and fights with his hands throughout the action. Neg: Lumbers about the field, lacks footwork protecting the edge and bends at the waist. Lacks ability on the second level. Analysis: An intelligent yet nasty blocker who understands the game, Boothe has been productive in college and has the skills to play at the next level. Best in a system that reduces his area assignments, yet could develop into a starter at the next level.
