Finnerty and Fowler Work Out For Browns

Grand Valley State's pass-catch duo of QB Cullen Finnerty and WR Eric Fowler are both names to remember on draft day. The pair recently held a private workout with an NFL team and MichiganVarsity was on hand with the report.

Cullen Finnerty and Eric Fowler hooked up quite a bit last season, Fowler's 18.2 yard per catch average this past season was the second best mark of any wide receiver prospect in this year's draft. But the most important completions may have come this past weekend when they worked out for the Cleveland Browns.

Finnerty was on target for the most part. He is showing much better arm strength than it seemed he posessed on tape. Fowler only dropped one pass during the hour session and made a couple of great leaping grabs including an amazing one hander on a deep pass from Finnerty.

The talented duo are both in the same boat. Both have great size and skills as developmental prospects but are slated to be later round picks or priority free agents.

Finnerty has impressed a number of teams though. Two AFC teams have 5th Round grades on him with a couple more rating him as a 6th/7th Round draftable prospect. Fowler's size (6'2, 210) and speed (4.43 at his pro day) make him an enticing prospect. During the workout, not only did he catch almost everything thrown at him, he also showed good route running skills and footwork along the sideline.

With their production over the past few seasons and now their impressive workouts, do not be surprised if these two teammates hear their name called later on day two of the draft.
