Who is Slade Bolden
Slade Bolden had limited production as a redshirt freshman in 2019. He only recorded stats in 7 games, ending the year with a very mediocre 44 yards from scrimmage. However, his stats don't show his usage as a Wildcat quarterback. Context also matters for Slade Bolden. Here’s a list of the other receivers in the room with Bolden: Jerry Jeudy, Jaylen Waddle, Henry Ruggs, John Metchie, and DeVonta Smith. Given his competition it makes sense why he didn't immediately produce during his first year at a new position.
In 2020, he increased production on both special teams and as a wide receiver. His second year at the position he recorded 240 yards as a receiver and 49 yards on 7 punt returns. He rose to being 5th on the team in receptions and grew his target share to 7.06% per PlayerProfiler stats.
The 2021 season was when the redshirt junior had his max production. Slade Bolden boosted his target share to 10.16% from 7.06% the previous season at Alabama, where he was 3rd in receptions on the team behind Jameson Williams and John Metchie. Against Georgia in the national championship, Bryce Young leaned on Bolden where he caught 7 passes for 44 yards. At the combine, his workout metrics underwhelmed. He was 13th percentile or less in his 3 recorded workout metrics His measurables show it’ll be an uphill battle for him to produce.
