2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEAN LOWRY: Northwestern, 6056 296 4.83. Three-year starter from Rockford, IL. A big and athletic projected left 4-3 run stuffing defensive end or a 3-4 five technique. Quick at the snap with quick hands getting into a blocker. Powerful at the point of attack with an explosive punch. Gets good initial separation and does a good job with a quick arm over to play the edge run and escape in pass rush. High motor player who chases all over the field. Has decent acceleration in pursuit and with a clear path to the quarterback or ball carrier does a good job closing. Short arms inhibits pass rush technique - if he doesn’t win with initial quickness and power he struggles to escape. Has a tendency to get upright if stalemated at the line. Struggles versus a double team. At his best in one-on-one situations. He is versatile playing 5 and 3 techniques in Northwestern’s 4-3 defense. East West Shrine notes: Played left end. Good screen awareness. Pushes the pocket on his contain rush and gets his arms up to make the quarterback throw out of a well. Looks like a prototype 3-4 five technique defensive end. A high effort player. 2015 stats: 52 T, 13.5 TFL, 3 sacks. 6 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 blocked kick. Edge speed:left 2.14, right 2.20. OSR:10/35. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-31, H-9 3/8, BP-30, 10-1.69).
