Summary

Bowman was on his way to another very productive IDP season before tearing his achilles in early October last year. He was back on the field with no limitations in April and should be considered a top IDP linebacker option in the middle of new defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's 4-3 defense. The 49ers will likely be a losing team and their defense will spend a lot of time on the field. Their defensive line is stocked with DE/DT tweeners and the team had trouble stopping the run last year, which could mean a ton of tackle opportunities for Bowman. Bobby Wagner and Paul Posluszny have both done very well in the MLB role in the "Seattle" defense. While that role could belong to #31 pick Reuben Foster in time, it should be Bowman's for 2017.
