Nick Bolton is a tier-one linebacker prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft

The 2021 NFL Draft is going to feature a fun class of linebackers to watch and to choose from come April’s fanfare. While Penn State’s Micah Parsons and Alabama’s Dylan Moses are usually the talk of the town, Missouri linebacker Nick Bolton belongs in the upper tier with these two star studded prospects.

Entering his true junior year with the Tigers, Bolton has already stacked together phenomenal tape while at Missouri. He plays a physical, disciplined brand of football, always seemingly in position to make a play in the hole; if anyone is trying to learn the linebacker position, Bolton’s tape is the definition of teach tape for them to absorb.

SEC football is a different brand of football than the rest of the nation, and Bolton fits right into the mold. A highly productive and intuitive player, Bolton is a ton of fun to watch in the middle of the Missouri defense.

Enjoy this scouting report as he looks to further establish himself among the top tier of linebackers. Here we will take a deep look at the stud Missouri linebacker, his background, his on-field production, where he shows domination on tape, where he shows room for improvement, and his potential production to the next level.
