The team traded down for Bowman and picked up an additional sixth round pick in this year's draft and a fourth round pick in next year's.
I had to give this pick a C+ because I thought the team had more pressing needs for a pass rusher and a corner back.
Some guys still on the board I thought the team might select were, Everson Griffin, Brandon Ghee, Corey Wooton, and Ricky Sapp.
However, Bowman was rated right around the area most of these players were and was once even projected to go in the late first round.
Character issues (which, unlike Mike Nolan, Singletary seems to relish mentoring these guys) and his projection as a 4-3 linebacker only, caused him to drop in the rankings.
But make no mistake, Bowman can play.
Bowman can drop back in coverage, come up in run support, and has a nose for the ball...almost sounds like Julian Peterson.
Hey here is an idea: Move Mays to linebacker and move Bowman to safety?
