The Baltimore Ravens select Tyus Bowser with the 47th overall pick

NCAA Football: Texas Kickoff-Oklahoma vs Houston Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

With the 47th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens have selected Tyus Bowser, an edge rusher from the Houston.

Bowser has been a big time riser over the pre-Draft process, starting after a breakout Senior Bowl week showing. Bowser proceeded to then dominate the NFL Combine, posting a 4.65 40 time, 24 reps on the bench press, a 37.5 inch vertical leap, a 127.0 inch broad jump, and a 6.75 second time in the three cone drill. Bowser proved to have freakish athleticism that the Ravens clearly loved when evaluating the former Houston Cougar.

Bowser has really good feet that largely has its roots in his previous career playing basketball at Houston.

Bowser isn’t just a player who rose due the offseason success, he has the production in college to make him worth the pick. In 2016, Bowser missed five games, and still had 8.5 sacks. Bowser also had four passes defended in 2016. In 2015, Bowser had six sacks.

The Houston product has high end athleticism, and good production in college, this looks to be a really good pick by the Ravens.
