BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted 29/405/3 as a senior after 35/469/3 as a junior in 2005. Suffered a torn knee ligament in August of 2006 and has struggled returning to form.
POSITIVES: King-sized possession receiver with dependable hands. Offers the quarterback a big target, extends his hands, and makes the reception away from his frame. Stays low exiting breaks and comes back to the ball. Gives effort blocking and gets results.
NEGATIVES: Struggles making the reception running at full speed. Lacks the second gear and slow-footed. Lacks quickness running routes and very choppy-footed into breaks.
ANALYSIS: Cowan possesses the size and hands to be a dependable red zone target and third-down pass-catcher. Has not been the same since his injury and must be medically cleared.
