Navorro Bowman Heading West to 49ers

That makes three! Last night, legendary linebacker and head coach of the San Fransisco 49ers selected Navorro Bowman 91st overall in the third round. Bowman registered 93 tackles during the 2009 season while battling a groin injury.

The linebacker should fit in well with the 49ers’ defensive scheme, but off-the-field issues weigh on the former Nittany Lion– a possible reason why he wasn’t selected sooner. Bowman was  suspended for two games in 2008 for fighting.

Bowman knows those problems are in the past. “I know what type of person I am. I’ve had so many teammates that love playing with me and love me being part of a team. I’m glad the 49ers see that I’m a good guy, and I bring a positive attitude,” Bowman told Mercury News.

Stay updated. Daryll Clark could be next!
