Skalski and Boulware

Both heart and soul of the defense. Both live for contact. But, how do they compare as football players. They're both among my favorite Tigers, I think Skalski is less prone to busts, maybe more disciplined, maybe faster and better in coverage?

Skalski seems more able to run sideline to sideline so

I think he might have a better chance in NFL.

Ben. Skalski is about 10 pounds heavier.

Love Skalski but doubt anyone can ever top BB Natty speech. Legendary. Would love Skalski to get that chance though!

For something different, I've noticed the way Skalski does pass coverage and he is good. I wonder how that translates to the NFL.

Guys like Boulware and Skalski are incredible at this level but at the NFL I think they lack the lateral quickness and change of speed to play in the box. They are system players, and incredibly effective when we outman a team on the line of scrimmage, but NFL systems tend to look for different qualities, sort of like how Tanner transitioned to OLB at the next level. But even Tanner, who is notably quicker than those two, has struggled to make it work at that position. I think some of the guys in the two deep will have a chance at the NFL from a sheer talent level, but V has always said he will take discipline over talent in his system any day which is why guys like Skalski are starting in front of players like Bentley and Patterson m, who probably have more raw talent at the position.

Skalski's football IQ is valuable. He picks up on what's coming.

They both would have had a better shot in the nfl before LBs were expected to drop into coverage as much as they do now. NFL offenses have changed so much.

You may be alone in that opinion

Skalski is better in pretty much every way

IMO, he's more athletic and more intelligent than Boulware.

Ben was a "dirtier" player (ya know, after the whistle) but more was allowed back then. He got into the heads of opponents like very few.

I never thought Ben had any chance in the NFL. Skalski has a small chance.
