BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Kentucky’s Lynn Bowden Jr. is one of the most dynamic playmakers in this year’s draft.
With a skillset like a Swiss Army Knife, Bowden ran, threw, caught, and returned 21 touchdowns during his sophomore and junior seasons.
“It’s really a show, Bowden said. “I don’t know how to explain it, it’s just something in us.”
Bowden was moved from wide receiver to quarterback for the final 8 games of last season and led the Wildcats to a bowl game. His versatility earned him the Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s most outstanding all-purpose player.
“If you put it out in front of me, I’m going to go get it. I got to have something that I’m chasing. I’m doing everything for my son and he’s watching me.”
NFL teams asked—what motivates him? The answer was simple, his son, 2-year-old, Lynn Bowden III.
“They ask me who drives me and that’s who drives me. That’s my passion and why I’m playing the game.”
