The Texans have not met with the top two offensive tackle prospects at the combine in Bolles and Ryan Ramczyk. The Texans have a big need at the offensive tackle position and there is possibility there could be one sitting there at #25 overall in the 1st round.
Bolles was the top offensive tackles coming out of junior college after playing at Snow College prior to signing with Utah. With the Utes, Bolles was selected to the first team All-Pac 12 for his play at left tackle. There is some concern with Bolles only playing one season of Division I football and if he can get his weight up for the NFL level.
Bolles is rated at the second best offensive tackle in this year's draft class and has a chance of starting day one. Bolles will not be lifting at the NFL Combine due to a pectoral strain but will be doing the bench press at his pro day.
He is s a top end athletic prospect with a history of off the field issues in his younger years that he overcame to get to this point of his life and career. Bolles is considered a 1st round prospect by analysts on many platforms.
