2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ras-I Dowling

  • Elite height and body frame for a corner
  • Can run stride for stride with receivers down field
  • Shows burst to close
  • Knack for jumping routes; instinctive
  • Physical on line of scrimmage; nice hands
  • Very athletic
  • Great feet and balance
  • Takes proper angles in run support
  • Fluid hips
  • Comfortable in press coverage
  • Shows awareness in zone
  • Mirrors receivers well
  • Highly competitive
  • Will take on a block

  • Lapses in concentration
  • Could improve form tackling
  • A little too high in backpedal
  • Must locate ball more precisely; might lack some vision
  • Occasionally looks sluggish coming out of breaks

    Summary: Dowling has the physical traits to be a starting corner in the NFL and I love his competitive attitude. However, he needs better coaching at the next level, and if someone can perfect his technique, he could be a playmaker. Looks like a first-round talent.

    Player Comparison: Ike Taylor. Taylor and Dowling have great size, athleticism, and the competitive attitude you love to see.
