We’re still weeks away from the NFL combine and even farther away from the NFL Draft, but Lynn Bowden is already making headlines. After an impressive career and a stellar final season in the Bluegrass, the receiver-turned-quarterback is continuing to turn heads as his professional career begins to come into view.
On Wednesday, Pro Football Focus even discussed Bowden on their NFL Draft-centered podcast. On Wednesday’s episode, Analysts Mike Renner and Austin Gayle break down the draft’s wide receiver class, and the college-football duo gives a quick, one-minute breakdown of Bowden’s rise and abilities, saying he elevated his game and subsequent draft stock by moving into the quarterback roll this season. They also added he broke more tackles on pure running plays than D’Andre Swift did last year.
“What this guy did with the ball in his hands is honestly fantastic… I don’t know what position to call this guy, but he’s a weapon I want in the NFL.”
