Stats

Elevator pitch

Bowers is an athletic pass catcher who can win all over the field, create valuable yardage after the catch and create a surge in the run game with his competitiveness as a blocker, but his frame limits his potential in pass protection. He projects as a Day 1 difference-maker for an offense in the passing game.

Strengths

Long-striding athlete with great speed to out-pace defenders…Athletic yards after the catch threat, efficiently transitioning from pass-catcher to ballcarrier…Physical and powerful finisher after the catch…Good-sized hands to swallow the ball away from his body…Comfortable in traffic, making tough grabs look routine…Uses nuance in his routes to stack defenders…Competitive in the run game…Reliable on combination blocks, works well in tandem and out in space.

Weaknesses

Tall and long, but very lean and doesn’t have the frame to add considerable bulk…Delivers pop as a blocker but has average power or grip strength to sustain in pass protection on a consistent basis.
