Boutte earned AP second-team All SEC as a senior at offensive guard. He started 11 games, all at right guard, and yielded just one sack all season.
Listed at 6-foot-5, 346 pounds, Boutte had an outstanding pro day to get on the radar for NFL teams. He ran a 5.25 40-yard dash and pumped out 28 reps of 225 pounds on bench press.
He was suspended one game his senior season for a late hit on Wisconsin’s D’Cota Dixon.
