2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dwight Lowery, CB, San Jose State

Lowery started his post high school career at a community college, then transferred to San Jose State. He claimed the starting cornerback job in the spring of 2006 and never looked back. He intercepted a school record nine passes, making three interceptions in one game -- another Spartan record. Following the season, he became the first San Jose State player to be named to an All American Team, making the AP third team roster. He followed this season with another stellar campaign in 2007, capping off the season with another All WAC First Team selection and more impressive, another All American Team selection. Lowery is very athletic, with good size. He is an intuitive player and may have the best skill sets of any defensive back in this year's draft class. He has uncanny field awareness and can stick with receivers. With very good hands for interceptions, he shows a second gear and also has good recovery speed (4.53-40). Lowery takes good angles and has the smarts and instincts to play zone coverage, he does not buy on play fakes. But he is a poor run supporter, needs to add strength and work on his tackling. Although he posses good speed, he did not show a real burst off the line. Lowery may be the best cornerback in the draft. The only concerns are his perceived lack of explosiveness and the level of competition. He has first round talent, but it all depends upon how he does in the post season and the Combine.
