Considered to be one of the ten most controversal players in the draft by NFL.com. Jonathan Dowling is 6'2 205 lbs has a rangy frame that needs to add bulk with long arms. Dowling has speed/range and is a play maker at safety with 9 ints and 8 FF's in the last two seasons. Dowling looks like a seahawks CB prospect if i've ever seen one. the knocks on Dowling is that he is lean, over confident, coachability, mental toughness, shoddy tackling and being outspoken. Seattle could take all that and make an all pro with R. Sherman being his teacher by leading by example.
also has a draft grade of 4th or 5th round.
