Football players in college will do anything possible in order to stand out more than their peers to receive a chance to be drafted at a higher slot. Sometimes, that means switching to another position to help the team win games.
This is exactly what Kentucky star Lynn Bowden has done. While he was a great quarterback in high school, in college he had only played wide receiver up until this year. However, due to Kentucky struggling and quarterback Sawyer Smith's injury, Bowden stepped up and led the team to a 5-2 record while playing QB. With all the hype surrounding the jack-of-all-trades player, Bowden decided to enter the NFL Draft with hopes that a team will pick him towards the top.
Bowden has shined while playing quarterback, placing eighth in the nation with 153.0 rushing yards-per-game. Bowden has been so dominant at each position that he was named All-SEC first team as an all-purpose player.
A player who is a top talent in this many facets of the game is bound to get some buzz heading into April's showcase.
