Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 4.61
Biography: Former reserve who moved into the starting lineup as a senior then posted 73/2/2.
Positives: Nice-sized strong safety prospect with a degree of upside. Effectively diagnoses the action, aggressive in run defense and quick up the field tackle. Puts his shoulders into ball-carriers, hard-hitting and works to mix it up. Strong wrap up tackler and brings ball-carriers down on initial contact.
Negatives: Lacks quickness in his game and more of a loping runner who takes a while to get it going. Limited sideline-to-sideline range and better off in the box. Not efficient, overruns the action, and usually arrives a half-step late in coverage.
Analysis: Bowman did a solid job after moving into the starting lineup as a senior, and he has potential in a zone system or as a conventional strong safety.
