Pos: 
Massive small-area blocker with the ability to annihilate opponents at the point of attack. Keeps his head on a swivel, always looks for someone to hit and powerful. Explosive at the point and easily turns defenders from the action. Starts with good knee bend, plays with proper pad level and sets with a wide base. Consistently stays square and keeps opponents in front of him.
Neg: 
Lined up at right tackle as a senior but does not show the ability to slide off the edge or adjust to speed rushers. Heavy-footed with marginal ability blocking in motion. Bends at the waist and overextends at time, especially last season. Suspended for the 2017 season opener after an offseason arrest for DUI.
Analysis: 
Bookser offers terrific size and strength but comes with limited mobility and can only play in confined quarters. He'll be a very good guard in a system that does not require zone blocking.
