D’Angelo Bowie: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: D’Angelo Bowie
School: Western New Mexico University
Position: Wide Receiver
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Going into my final collegiate season, my main goal was to leave a winner on and off the field. Inspire others by my play and hunger to be the best.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
My game In 3 Words: Explosive ( with the ball in my hands I tend to make the first guy miss and I have a nose for the end zone), Technician (my route running is pretty good, Defensive Backs have a hard time playing me 1 on 1 ), Attitude ( I play this game I love with an attitude. My passion for this game is left out on the field each and every game).
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
As far as my preparation for the upcoming pro days and the NFL Draft, I will be training with several different trainers, one in which will have me catching for the “QB Guru” himself, George Whitfield’s Quarterback camp. I will train hard to assure that my 40-time separates me from the other Wide Receivers in this Draft. I will take a substantial amount of time throughout the day studying coverages to elevate my football IQ.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I’m studying film, I like to recognize down and distance and the type of coverages they decide to play on certain downs. Then, I like to watch the technique of their Corners and what they like to do in the boundary versus what they tend to do when they are placed in the field.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
Going into this draft, what separates me from a lot of people at my position, is my ability to create separation in my routes and my ability to explode in and out of breaks (As seen in my film).
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
The type of strengths I will bring to a team on the field will be versatility and being coachable along with my eagerness to learn. Strengths I would bring off the field is doing a great job of representing any NFL team well in the community and on social media, not only with the things I plan to bring to the table, but with the behavior I will display when I’m not on the field, understanding that as a public figure there are eyes always on me.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
It would be an honor to represent any NFL team or any pro team. I’m coming in ready. I will be ready. All I need is for one scout, one coach, one team to have just a tad bit of faith in me. Once my foot is in the door, I’m there to stay.
