Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Jonathan Dowling, FS

USA TODAY Sports

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 draft

Jonathan Dowling

Free Safety

Height: 6' 3", Weight: 198 lbs

Western Kentucky

Strengths: Dowling is a quick safety. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds. He has good hands, finishing his college career with 9 interceptions. In 2013 he had 67 tackles, three interceptions, and seven pass break ups. He was a top prospect out of high school who began his college days in Gainesville with the Florida Gators in 2010. He has a great attitude and a good work ethic.

Weaknesses: Dowling's college career began by being booted off the Gators in November of 2010 for violating team rules. He has admitted to skipping practices while at Florida. The competition in the Sun Belt is not close to the SEC teams he would have faced at Florida.

Bottom Line: Dowling had some attitude issues right out of high school. The good news is that he seems to have learned from his mistakes. He could be one of the best values if he gets drafted in the 7th round.

Projected Round: 7-FA

Team He Fits Best On: Redskins, Steelers, Cowboys
