2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ras-I Dowling

Ras-I Dowling, Virginia (6'1" 200 lbs.)

Positives: He has good size for a cornerback. He uses his height and leaping ability very well. He's not afraid of contact and can make tackles in run support. He has good upper body strength and can jam receivers at the line. He has good hands and times his jumps very well. Plays a lot like former Virginia cornerback and current Minnesota Viking Chris Cook.

Negatives: He doesn't have the speed to be a lockdown cornerback. He has had injury concerns in the past, including a serious ankle injury in 2010. Not very fluid in the hips and has a tendency to get high in his backpedal.
