2014 Outlook:

The Redskins have been trying to find Chris Cooley's replacement for years. Believe it or not, Bolser is the 7th tight end the Redskins have drafted in the last 8 years! Props if you can name more than 4 out of those 7 off the top of your head.

At tight end the Redskins already have their pass-catcher (Jordan Reed), their blocker (Logan Paulsen), and their special teams gunner (Niles Paul). So, Bolser finds himself on the outside looking in. In order to make the roster he will have to prove to be a kick coverage playmaker. Bolser did play on the kick coverage unit at Indiana and he was an effective tackler, at that.  His competition for a roster spot will not be against Paul or Paulsen, but against guys like, Rob Jackson and Brandon Jenkins who could provide the same value on kick coverage.  If Bolser does enough to warrant a practice squad spot (at least), his value could be witnessed in 2015 with Paul in the last year of his contract this year.

Personal Information:

  • If nicknames get you in the door then Ted "War Daddy" Bolser has it made. Coach Jay Gruden has already said that he's a "war daddy" on special teams after seeing the way he pursues kick returners.  In my opinion, "War Daddy" beats out his former nickname "Touchdown Ted" by a mile.
  • Bolser measures almost identically to Logan Paulsen at 6'5" and 257lbs. He's not the blocker Paulsen is but he has the frame coaches can work with.
  • If Bolser makes the roster he will don the #83 jersey. Nowhere to go but up for anyone in that jersey.
  • The first time Bolser suits up for the Washington Redskins will not be the first time he steps on the grounds of FedEx Field. In 2010 (Bolser's freshman year), Indiana played Penn State at FedEx Field. Unfortunately, he didn't record a single reception to get on the box-score.
