Biography: Four-year starting center at Toledo.
Positives: "Aggressive small-area blocker who plays with good awareness and football intellect. Explodes off the snap into blocks, is quick out to the second level, and jolts defenders at the point of attack. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action, stays square, and is a solid position blocker. Strong, seals defenders from the action, and has the ability to finish blocks. Keeps his head on a swivel, remains very alert throughout the action, and effectively quarterbacks the offensive line. Solid with the shotgun snap as the ball immediately gets back to the quarterback."
Negatives: "Stiff, struggles redirecting to defenders, and ineffective in motion. Gets lazy with his hands and must be quicker getting them into opponents. Lacks top footwork in space."
Analysis: Kowalski has been a productive center on the college level and is a powerful player who does not give up an inch of room at the point of attack. He has the style for a power running offense and enough skill to take his game to the next level.
