7. Kevin Boothe
2012 Grade: +9.2
2012 Snaps: 1,027
Summary: Boothe bounced back nicely from sub-par 2010 and 2011 campaigns to grade as our No. 21 guard in 2012. He’s never been top notch in pass protection, as his -1.6 grade attests, but his improvement as a run blocker will make him attractive to some teams. His+5.3 run block grade ranked 18th out of 81 qualifiers at the position. Like Vasquez, Boothe has a penalty-free streak, though it’s less impressive as it dates back to 2010. If you’re willing to look past the leaky pass protection and a 95.7 PBE that ranked 42nd among guards, Boothe’s improvement in the running game and ability to keep the laundry off the field could make for an attractive commodity.
