Boulware fires back at NFL analyst on Twitter

by - Assoc. Editor -
Boulware will be back for the 2016 season

Clemson linebacker and fan favorite Ben Boulware was third on the team in tackles (82) this past season despite battling an arm injury for last few games of the season.

NFL draft analyst Jon Ledyard was asked by a Twitter user on Tuesday night if Boulware was going to be a top prospect next season. The NFL analyst said on Twitter,"Probably not. Short, squatty frame with minimal tackle radius and limited athleticism. But man he loves football and contact."

Boulware responded back to the writer tweeting a picture of himself making a goal-line interception against Baker Mayfield in the Orange Bowl and a short clip of him making an impressive one-on-one tackle against Heisman winner Derrick Henry in the National Championship game.

Ledyard took it all in good fun and responded the following after the Twitter exchange, "No you can't (measure heart), and that's why I love Boulware. Can play for me any day."
