Position:DT Class: Sr School:
Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 6'0½, 290 40 Time: 5.01 Grade: 3.05
BIO: Two-year starter and a second team all-conference selection as a senior totaling 36/11/3 after 23/8/4 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Competitive defender best suited as a back-up at the next level. Explodes off the snap and gives opposing blockers a lot of trouble. Plays with excellent pad level, gets underneath blockers and has a burst of closing speed. Makes plays up and down the line of scrimmage and constantly goes 100 miles per hour. Good head for the ball and quick to locate.
NEGATIVES: Only an average athlete and does not play to his 40 time. Lacks balance, does not redirect well and easily neutralized at the point.
ANALYSIS: Bowman has the quickness, size and leverage to be effective as a three-technique lineman at the next level. Solid developmental prospect.
