PFF is fine and all, but particularly when it comes to line play I would take their ratings with a grain of salt. Boone is a versatile player and would be a great 6th lineman, but he's not and never will be top tier.


I disagree 110%. Boone was a pro bowl player. A 6th offensive lineman doesn't make the pro bowl. Granted the pro bowl is the pro bowl but regardless, he was good enough to get there plus he wasn't a "well known" player either. I'm not say he is top tier but he's definitely not a "6th lineman". Not sure where a claim like that even comes from.

The fact that he isn't terribly good at playing LG by NFL standards.

Says who? Like I said he made the pro bowl and there were also articles when he was at SF saying he was the most underpaid offensive lineman in the league because of how good he was playing. There's nothing out there saying he's a 6th lineman or shouldn't be starting. He's a solid LG. Not great but I would say he's definitely good. No less the poor guy had the worst tackle in 10 years next to him all season. Reiff is much better than Clemmings. So I think we'll continue to see solid play out of him. Not sure where these "standards" are coming from outside of just your own personal opinion but either way I don't agree with them. But hey, you're entitled to your own opinion

[quote][Boone has been Minnesota's best offensive lineman this year, grading out positively in pass blocking at PFF. T.J. Clemmings is the Vikings only other option at left tackle./quote]

This was towards years end on rotoworld regarding Boone. Take if for what it's worth but these grades are somewhat accurate given how Clemmings was the lowest in the league and Kalil and Smith weren't far behind
