Omar Bolden NFL Draft Profile

Omar Bolden NFL Draft ProfileOmar Bolden, Senior, Cornerback, Arizona State



It seems like Omar Bolden has been a starter at Arizona State forever. Back in 2007 the cornerback spent the first four games coming in as a substitute, but then secured a starting job that he held onto for the rest of the season. In all he totaled 33 tackles, one interception and six pass breakups and was named to a variety of all-freshman teams. Bolden came into the 2008 season with higher expectations and started to turn into a smart, effective and consistent defensive back.

An injury shortened 2009 campaign gave Bolden another year of eligibility. He did not let the injury get the best of him and Bolden was back to his old productive ways in 2010. En route to first-team All-Pac-10 accolades, Bolden tallied 52 tackles, three interceptions and seven pass breakups.


Final Projection:

In addition to  his first-team all-conference accolades as a cornerback in 2010, he was also a second-team kickoff returner. The 5-10, 195 pound Ontario, California native is a speedster who can make things happen in space. Bolden may not be the strongest cornerback in this class, but he usually can make up for it with his speed. His years of experience at Arizona State and his ability to play corner and return kicks should make him a very attractive player to the NFL.
