NFL Draft Prospect: Eric Rowe, Cornerback From Utah
The Senior Bowl is now behind us and draft season is officially here.
As we approach the 2015 NFL Draft, it’s time for to find out more and more about the players who could be helping out the Eagles in 2015. Each week here on 973ESPN.com, I will feature a new a player from positions of need for the Eagles.
As we hear about names that the Eagles meet with and talk to at the college all-star games, combine and pro days we will find out more about them here.
Last week we looked at Michigan State safety Kurtis Drummond, many pundits think the Eagles will put a heavy emphasis on the secondary, it’s only natural to look at a cornerback.
Utah defensive back Eric Rowe apparently has the interest of the Eagles.
The cornerback met with Chip Kelly and Bill Davis, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com. Rowe would be a guy who has the size Kelly likes in his corners, but not a lot of experience at the position. After spending three years as a standout starting free safety, Rowe shifted to CB for his senior season.
From Scott Wright President of Draftcountdown.com on the Sports Bash:
"Eric Rowe is kind of a cornerback/safety tweener, he's played both and he's getting a look at both positions at the Senior Bowl. He's a situation where teams need to figure out which direction they wanna go with him. He has a chance at corner and obviously if it doesn't work out there, you can always go to plan B and move him inside."
