ESPN's Keith Law feels that Boldt's injury could drop him out of the first round and may ultimately lead Boldt to honor his commitment to Nebraska rather than sign out of high school (Twitter link). Law ranked Boldt as the 13th best prospect (Insider required) in this year's class in mid-April.
I love the idea of Boldt with the supplemental pick. I want upside in the draft and getting a guy who would be a mid-first round grade if not for an injury in the supplemental round would be perfect.
