Bio: 
Two-year starter who posted 63 tackles (four for loss), three interceptions and three sacks with five pass breakups in 2017. Made 67 tackles, forced one fumble and broke up two passes as a junior. Tallied 28 tackles with one sack and one forced fumble in his first two seasons with the Wolfpack.
Pos: 
Undersized safety with poor speed but an outstanding head for the game. Instinctive, effectively reads the action and quickly makes his way to the ball. Locates passes in the air, displays good change of direction and gives effort defending the run. Shows a burst to the play, breaks down well and effectively uses his hands. Quickly picks up coverage assignments and displays good hands for the interception.
Neg: 
Lacks height and long speed. Has athletic limitations.
Analysis: 
Boone posted two productive seasons at North Carolina State as a run defender and in pass coverage. He offers potential as a dime back if he plays well on special teams.
