Boulware: "I'm probably one of the hottest ugly guys on the team"

Fighting for a roster spot this August, rookie free agent linebacker Ben Boulware is the lone Clemson standout on the Panthers, and he took center-stage on the media circuit Monday.

Boulware said he wouldn't hesitate to sack his former teammate Deshaun Watson if he got the chance during Wednesday night's preseason game.

"No, not at all. I’ll give him a hug and a kiss after. But I would put everything into that hit," Boulware said.

Boulware knows that it would be hard to get a clean shot on Watson.

"That’s three-and-a-half years of waiting to hit somebody, and I’ll put all three years into one hit,” he said. "Hopefully he’d feel it. But he’d probably juke me out, honestly. He’s a pretty good athlete. But no, I would not lay off at all."

The topic of the day, however, was his status as the best beard on the team.

Boulware brought a hairbrush to the press conference in an answer to teammate Star Lotulelei's challenge for the best beard.

"I think mine's better. He has better length than me," Boulware said, "but mine has more character."

The Anderson native didn't stop there.

"I'm pretty ugly," Boulware said, "but this (beard) makes me pretty hot. This adds character. I'm probably one of the hottest ugly guys on the team because of this bad boy."
