    Delran's Lowber learns NFL ways

    http://www.philly.com/inquirer/sports/20070613_Delrans_Lowber_learns_NFL_ways.html
    The intermittent rain had stopped one Wednesday morning last month when Delran High product Todd Lowber, the rawest Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver, lined up against third-year cornerback Ronyell Whitaker in a one-on-one drill. Whitaker backpedaled, anticipating a move. But Lowber, with an effortless stride, burst down the sideline and caught quarterback Brooks Bollinger's pass on the dead run.
    This is a nice read...

    Another good find. It gives a little to read about, even if I don't expect neither Lowber nor Whitaker to make the team

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I don't know if this has ever been resolved but this clears it up.

    At this point, speed is Lowber's greatest asset. In workouts for NFL teams, Lowber ran 40-yard dash times ranging from 4.23 to 4.3 seconds, according to Ulrich. (Ulrich discounted a reported 4.11 clocking, saying it came from a scout with "a quick finger.")

    Troy can catch in the offseason and even preseason fine.
    Just not any games.
    It will be awhile to see if Lowbar can either.

    lined up against third-year cornerback Ronyell Whitaker in a one-on-one drill. Whitaker backpedaled, anticipating a move. But Lowber, with an effortless stride, burst down the sideline and caught quarterback Brooks Bollinger's pass on the dead run.
    Against Ronyell Whitaker.

    Running on an asphalt track & running on turf with cleats are two different things. If it's strictly a spped thing, why aren't you reading obout him burning other DB's?

    Whitakers coverage skills for the most part suck. Ask Caine. I pointed it out to him at the Packer game last year.
