Pos: 
Auburn transfer who displayed good development last season. Plays with excellent pad level, gets leverage on opponents and works his hands throughout the action. Rarely off his feet, breaks down well and displays good change of direction. Moves well laterally and shows the ability to get out in space and pursue the action. Strong, knocks blockers off the line and gives effort.
Neg: 
Must develop more moves with his hands. Possesses just a short burst of speed. Average pass rusher.
Analysis: 
Cowart caught my attention at Auburn in 2016 and performed well for Maryland last year after transferring. He offers size, growth potential and decent upside. Cowart has possibilities in a variety of systems and could be a productive player at the next level if he continues to progress on the field.
