The following is a Q&A with Dwayne Bowe from Warpaint Illustrated, the Scout.com website that covers…
Bowe, Davis complete historic day for LSU
Saturday, LSU re-wrote that record when the Tigers capped off an exciting day with Dwayne Bowe and Craig Davis were taken 23rd and 30th respectively giving LSU four first rounders.
Bowe, a 6-2, 218-pound wideout from Miami, was chosen with the 23rd pick of the first round by the Kansas City Chiefs. Bowe was the 3rd wide reciever taken in the draft behind Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson (2nd-Detroit) and Ohio State's Ted Ginn Jr. (9th-Miami).
Davis, a 6-1, 207-pound receiver from New Orleans, was the fifth wide receiver taken in the draft with the 30th pick by the San Diego Chargers. Tennessee's Robert Meachem was the fourth wideout taken with the 27th pick by New Orleans.
It was only the third time in NFL Draft history that a pair of wide reeivers from the same team each were drafted in the first round. They are listed here:
97 Florida Ike Hilliard – Giants - 7 Reidel Anthony – Bucs – 16
01 Miami Santana Moss – Jets – 16 Reggie Wayne – Colts – 30
07 LSU Dwayne Bowe – Chiefs – 23 Craig Davis – Chargers – 30
Ironically, Bowe and Davis will square off against one another next year in divisional play. Both Kansas City and San Diego are in the AFC West.
