Dante Fowler Jr. is another player with an incredible combination of size and speed that drops jaws; it is a common trait amongst the best pass rushers. Fowler Jr. is 6′ 3″ and weighs an imposing 261 pounds. He ran a 4.6 second 40 yard dash at the combine.
Fowler Jr. had 15 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks in 2014. The reason he makes plays in the backfield with such regularity is that he is explosive from the snap of the football and through the whistle.
Fowler Jr. is best suited as a 3-4 outside linebacker, in fact he is the prototype. That said, put his hand in the dirt and make him a defensive end and he could really impose fear on the quarterback.
