“Not only is McDowell supremely gifted, but he never shuts it down either, competing with infection energy and routinely making stops outside the hashes.” –Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler), 9/19/16
Malik McDowell possesses an extremely rare physical set of tools, allowing him to line up either inside or on the edge. He puts together a combination of speed, power, and athleticism, that makes him a fit for any type of defensive scheme. His effort is full speed all of the time, and has been very well coached. He should make an instant impact in the NFL, and could be used all over the line.
