Venzell Boulware is a very good guard prospect from the high school alma mater of the Berry twins. It's been lost in the shuffle a bit with all of the angst about the offensive tackle position, but Tennessee coaches have to replace redshirt senior Marcus Jackson at left guard for 2016, and Boulware has the physical tools and pedigree to be a serious competitor. Like most standout offensive linemen, Boulware played offensive tackle in high school, but he probably doesn't have the wingspan or the footspeed to play tackle in college. Instead, he'll be a massive inside road grader for vastly improved Tennessee offensive line.
