Raiders trade 2020 3rd round pick Lynn Bowen Jr to Dolphins

Recommended Posts

Sources: The #Raiders are trading RB/returner Lynn Bowden Jr and a 6th rounder to the #Dolphins in exchange for a 4th round pick, the same pick Miami just got from Vegas. The versatile Bowden was a third-rounder this year.

Wish I could tell you something about the guy. However he was rarely talked about in camp and obviously struggled enough to get the boot before playing a down. 

Hope he does well for you guys.

Some at the team facility thought the rookie was more concerned with picking up new cars than the playbook, and on the field Bowden looked measured and not explosive. On top of a lack of breakaway speed, he was always getting blasted when it was his turn to pass block. 

influence on other rookies like Henry Ruggs III and Damon Arnette. 

Suddenly, that slide rule that teams use to measure talent versus potential risks tilted toward the conclusion that keeping Bowden was a losing proposition

 

Context as to why we were eager to move on.

I love this deal.  I wanted Bowden in the 3rd as a slot WR and gadget player.  I can't believe the Raiders were using him as a RB.  He may not impact the game much in 2020, but his skillset is quite obviously that of a slot WR.  

After all the smoke clears, the Raiders/Dolphins transactions equate to:

1 year of Raekwon McMillion and a 5th round pick

for

4 years of Lynn Bowden Jr and a 6th round pick (with the Raiders picking up the $1 million or so signing bonus)

That's quite obviously a good deal on paper for Miami.

Any word on how Bowden has looked in practice with you guys?

One of the sites said Bowden (and rookie Navy QB Perry) were wearing red jerseys in practice so maybe they were playing QB as scout team for Cam Newton prep?

Don't think he got time to practice so far. He's just been so busy signing his loan documents and sorting through all the options for his new car.
