Bolser caught 117 passes in 2013 for 1,337 yards and 15 touchdowns. Not bad for a player who was a wide receiver in high school. He became a starter as a junior and was a complementary player as a sophomore. Blocking was an issue early for Bolser, who is 6-foot-5 and 257 pounds.
“I hadn’t really put my hand on the ground at all,” Bolser said. “Throughout my process at Indiana I got a lot better at blocking, which a lot of people like how I block and they see my effort in every single play. I play with a chip on my shoulder.”
Bolser was chosen with the No. 217 overall pick. Hocker was a four-year starter for the Razorbacks. He made five-of-seven field goals from beyond 50 yards, including three as a senior. In his career he missed two extra points in 171 attempts - both of those coming in his sophomore year.
Hocker’s career long field goal is 54 yards and he recorded 34 touchbacks as a senior. He would be competing with incumbent Kai Forbath and Jake Rogers in training camp. The Redskins acquired the No, 228 pick by trading down in the sixth round in a trade with the Tennessee Titans.
