Boling increases his draft stock

Clint Boling made good use of his trip to the Senior Bowl, according to ESPN analyst Todd McShay.

McShay said that the former Georgia offensive lineman was among a group of SEC players who improved their draft stock through Saturday's senior all-star game in Mobile, Ala.

"Boling has shown good inline power and nice awareness all week, especially in the open field where he has done a great job of adjusting on the move to cover up targets. He's made himself some money this week."

Boling's versatility remains a strong asset. He played left tackle for most of his time at Georgia but can also play guard.

Incidentally, former Georgia linebacker Justin Houston also got some kind words last week from the other big-name ESPN draft analyst. Mel Kiper said Houston currently projects as a first-round pick, somewhere in the 20-25 pick range. Kiper thinks Houston can play either outside linebacker in a 3-4 (as he did last year at Georgia) or defensive end in a 4-3.

Before his senior season Boling was a high first round projected player.

I wouldn't be surprised if he went a lot higher then people think.

A few mocks even had him as a top five overall pick before his senior season.

Maybe the Falcons will take Houston. I know LB isn't one of the Falcons top priorities but he may be the best available at the time they pick.

But even if they don't, I'm not going to get all wound up and start yapping that the Falcons never take UGA players, the way some of our fans do. It's funny how the bozos who do that have no idea if other NFL teams are more or less prone to taking local college players.
