FSU linebacker impresses NFL personnel during an individual workout.
By BOB THOMAS
The Times-Union



TALLAHASSEE -- The Jacksonville Jaguars were well-represented as more than 100 NFL front-office personnel, scouts and coaches descended on Florida State for Tuesday's individual workouts by draft-eligible Seminoles.
While much of the attention was focused on former Seminoles Darnell Dockett and Greg Jones, linebacker Michael Boulware emerged as the day's top performer, clearly piquing the interest of Jaguars' vice president of player personnel James Harris.

Boulware, the brother of Baltimore Ravens star linebacker Peter Boulware, stood the gallery of NFL personnel on its ear with a 4.45 40-yard dash time. And he didn't stop there. After measuring at 6-foot-2, 227 pounds, FSU's seventh-leading career tackler had the fastest times in the shuttle and three-cone drills as well as the best standing and vertical jumps.

"I was happy with the things I was able to do," Boulware said. "I knew I could run 4.4. How low, I didn't know. That set the tone for the whole day."



Boulware's day ended with a private interview with the Jaguars, who are in dire need of linebackers.

The Jags aren\'t in \'dire need\' of LB\'s. They have one very solid LB and one very good LB.

Anyway, I don\'t want Boulware because he can\'t tackle very well and we already have too many non-tackling fools on our team.

Is interesting to see if the Jags would bite on him in the second round , most mocks have Boulware going in the third . Saints have 2 seconds so if the Jags reach at that 2nd round position all the better for the Saints....

boulware is much like boss bailey of the detroit lions. he is the youngest sibling whose older counterpart is a pro-bowler and boulware like boss bailey didnt get the hype coming out of college as his brother. and yet boss bailey turned out to be a fine young linebacker last year with much much potential.... personally, i like boulware, i wouldnt mind us taking him with the 2nd 2nd rounder, he has had a great workout at his proday and he is proven on the field, on the tackling situation... that can always be taught.... except if you play for the saints of course.... they dont emphasize tackling, as it takes up too much of hazs precious nap time.............

I agree with Yoda, both on the Boulware and Bailey comments. We need help at EVERY LB position. Boulware SHOULD be a guy who can help a lot down the road.

I know this may seem a bit crazy, but it wouldn\'t hurt my feelings a bit to draft nothing by LB\'s on the first day and see who the best ones are. If they are all pretty good, then start playing 3-4.

I DEFINITELY think it would be crazy to draft four linebackers the first day, but I remember Mueller saying in an interview not to be surprised if the Saints spent two early picks on the same position. We can only guess if he was talking CB or LB though.

It\'s good to have you on the board rAge. With all the Vilma love you give and \"can\'t fail\" sorts of personnel moves, I\'m stunned you aren\'t in the front office.
