John Pease, who coached football for 39 years, including 21 seasons in the professional ranks, is optimistic for the NFL futures of former Utes Marcus Williams and Garett Bolles.

He said on Monday’s Bill Riley Show he wouldn’t pick Williams in the first round of the NFL Draft, but expects him to go certainly in the first three rounds. He continued that Bolles is “outstanding” in run blocking, but will have his eyes opened when he sees NFL pass rushers. He predicted Bolles will get beaten early in his career by good defensive linemen, but will be a solid left tackle, the key position on the offensive line, within a year or two.
