    Does anyone know anything about this guy? Was he worth a 3rd round pick?

    Well for a starters he's a safety and a 4th round pick

    He's quite an intelligent player who has great field awareness and instincts. He is quite small though but also quite physical so he can make some quality tackles.

    He's quite quick on his feet but he can overestimate his strength and aggression.

    He's worth his value if he gets stronger, but become less aggressive at times in the game and becomes less judgemental

    I've heard more about Finnegan than I've heard about Lowry. Just wondering if there was a reason for this......other than Finnegan getting into trouble.

    LMJ,
    Just curious, but where does that assessment come from? Have you ever seen him play? Do they show U.S. college football in London? Is that from some other website, and if so, where?

    5'11 200 pounds isn't really small.
    He runs a 4.5 40 which isn't spectacular but not bad for a SS.
    He lacks great athleticism and some draft sites were not sure he would even get drafted. Go figure. I can't see him being drafted that early IMO.

    Lowry...

    Smart, tough but too small, not a goood athlete. Sounds like a 4 time pro bowler. Blaine bishop.

    Lowry vs fuller...

    An interesting comparison because both are 4th rd pick safeties and came from big schools. Both have different strong points and body types. Fuller is faster 4.43 vs 4.5, 2 inches taller but 10 lbs lighter. Lowry is more of a SS type and the better tackler.

    Lowry's 2005 stats were a little better than fuller's 2004 stats at college.
    Lowry was in on 79 tackles vs fuller's 52 and had 4 ints vs fuller's 3.

    The coaches of the big ten thought enough of lowry to vote him to the all conference team.

    Lowry is a football player with a nose for tha ball. He can tackle people which is something our safeties did not do in 2005.
