Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Stays light on his feet with easy lateral shuffle. Heady player to recognize extra pressure, always keeping his head on a swivel. Good core strength to hold his ground and shield run lanes, cutting off rushers. Versatile team captain and three-year starter, seeing starting time at both guard and center.

WEAKNESSES: Naturally tall stature and will struggle with leverage, popping upright off the snap. Exposes his frame too easily, making him an easy target for rushers' limbs. His hand placement seems needs tweaked to better control defenders and sustain blocks. Appears tight in his trunk and not the most fluid mover.

--Dane Brugler

Player Overview

A three-year starter, Bowanko started at right guard in 2011 before moving to center the past two seasons, also seeing snaps at left guard in 2013.

At Virginia's March 17 pro day, he ran a 5.25-second 40-yard dash and posted 26 reps on the 225-pound bench press to go with a 27-inch vertical.
