Alex Boston measures in at a little taller than 6'2", 261 lbs., and ran the 40-yard dash as low as 4.76 seconds. Although Boston has great workout speed, it doesn't translate to the field, as he wasn't a fantastic edge rusher.
The Jaguars hope that Boston can follow the suit of many former Florida State Seminoles, who become much better players in the pros than they were while wearing the garnet and gold.
Scout.com NFL Draft Expert and former scout Tom Marino has a short take about Alex Boston—
Not the typical FSU defensive lineman that we have come to know over the years. Doesn't get off blocks or get to the ball. Is undersized and marginal in every skill area. Questionable to bring to camp as a free agent.Does Boston have a chance to make the Jaguars roster? It's a longshot. With Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves occupying two roster spots, as well as the return of starters Paul Spicer and Reggie Hayward, there leaves just one or two spots for Brent Hawkins, Jeremy Mincey, James Wyche, Kenny Pettway, and Alex Boston. He will have to play the best football of his life to get noticed in this group.
