Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the San Francisco 49ers in the 3rd round with the #27 pick.
Intriguing scheme fit. Navarro Bowman is a versatile linebacker with good instincts whom the Niners will look to play alongside Patrick Willis. May also get a look as a rush linebacker.


  • Quickly diagnoses plays
  • Tremendous coverage skills, especially in zone coverage
  • Excellent tackler
  • Explodes through gaps as a blitzer. 17 TFL in 2009


  • Off the field problems. Involved in a campus fight in October2007. Violated probation in April 2009
  • Undersized. Struggles to take on bigger blockers
  • Lack of position versatility. I can't see Bowman at any other position than 4-3 weakside linebacker
