Pro Football Focus highlights Lynn Bowden: “He’s a weapon I want in the NFL”

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.”

    That’s great because some commenters on this site said he hurt his draft stock and would go undrafted after switching to QB. Very happy for LBJ and can’t wait to see him on Sundays. Come see about it!

    Teams who pass up the opportunity to pick LBJ will regret it later.

      Rob, agree with you, but there will be some who say LB didn’t run around the cones to their satisfaction!

    Referring to him as LBJ, at least for those of us pushing 50 and over, does not create a good feeling. His marketing advisers might want to get away from that. LBJ being one of the lead guys in the JFK assassination and all.

    Well I’ve pushed past 50, I remember the JFK assassination and when someone uses LBJ for LeBron or Bowden it doesn’t make me think of President Johnson. Might surprise some to learn George Bush was involved in the assassination.

      Not only that, there are still tons of people out there that believe in the lone gunman BS story.
