Zimmer, Spielman present at DT McDowell’s pro day

By Matthew Coller

If you were an oddsmaker, you might move the line on the Minnesota Vikings’ odds of selecting a defensive tackle.

Both head coach Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman were in attendance at the pro day for Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell.

Things that make you go hmmm: Vikings’ GM Rick Spielman and HC Mike Zimmer worked out MSU DT Malik McDowell at his pro day today.

McDowell, who is 6-foot-6, 295-pounds, is projected to be drafted anywhere from the late first round to midway through the second.

His NFL Draft Profile reads:

“Has similar physical traits and abilities of Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner, but may not share their football character. McDowell lacked production along the interior and could benefit from a move to a defensive end spot in a 4-3 or 3-4 front. McDowell is raw, but when he flashes, it can be blinding. McDowell is an explosive, ascending prospect with All-Pro potential if he grows into his body and takes the necessary coaching.”
