Do any of you have any info regarding Zach Bowen? Any training camp feedback? Is he expected to make team?

Some of us Browns fans wanted us to take him in late rounds. He was pretty good at Ohio State last year. I did a search of his name and read some of the posts related to him. Seems like he is way down the depth chart, maybe at best practice squad.

Some of the guys on a Browns message board I belong to know I follow the Texans and have belonged to this board for years. They are curious how he is doing. Any feedback would be appreciated.

PS: Hope you guys win tonight and have NO injuries. Good luck. I'll be watching the game and pulling for you guys.

I haven't heard any updates about him, but did pick him in our UDFA game to make the roster. Versatility is a plus and he looks like a ST guy right now.

Thanks TexansSeminole. Maybe he'll get on the field tonight. I'll keep an eye out for him.

I've seem several (positive) mentions on Twitter regarding his play in TC. You can probably search the TC thread for his name.

If the Texans keep 2 FB, it'd be Greg Jones and Tyler Clutts. So, nary a chance he makes the roster.

I kinda like Boring for his versatility.
It's not easy for a guy to switch from FB to LB midway in his Senior season and did that well. I takes a good mentality and dedication to the game, IMO.
I hope he makes the PS, if not here, then somewhere else.

One of the reasons some of us were curious was that during our game against the Rams last night, we had Chris Ogbonnaya (yeah that guy, lol) playing FB. As a RB he can be serviceable, as a FB he is worse than bad. If Boren gets cut maybe he could be an option.

Wow, how much does he weighs now?

Zach has had a pretty good TC with a great opportunity to learn from Greg Jones how an NFL FB prepares. The games will tell the tale, though, when they can unload on opponents.

We're a little crowded with good FB options, so the Brownies will likely have a shot at snatching one up -- unless there's a mysterious late camp injury. ;)

He's listed at 6'0" and 225.

I think he was filling in due to injuries to Marecic (Stanford 2 way player), and Smelley an H back type guy from Alabama. I'm hoping they were just using Obywann as a fill in.

Thanks for the feedback.

He got a lot more playing time than I expected. Seemed to do pretty well. Got stuffed lead blocking on one play I saw and made some good lead blocks on others. A couple times I saw him lead all the way to the second level looking for someone to hit while the RB was stuffed at LOS. If RB would have stuck to his hip--could have been big gainers.

That airborne rosencopter crap after his catch in red zone was scary.

His Borencopter scored less style points than the original Rosencopter.

But at least he held onto the football!

I like his athleticism. A guy that I wanted us to pick up was Zach Line. He looked pretty good yesterday for the Vikings.
