Matt Barrows today on his blog posted that at then end of practice when they do sprints and such, Bowman was challenging Willis in the race and he was neck and neck with Willis all the way across the finish line. They both left everyone else on the team in the dust he reported.
"The 49ers don't want me reporting on the conditioning session - running from sideline to sideline several times -- that ends every practice. But they might tolerate this observation: Rookie Navorro Bowman challenging Patrick Willis to be the first inside linebacker across the finish line. In fact, the two pushed each other so hard that they were the first two players across when the session ended. Usually receivers and defensive backs are the first across the line."
Anyway, Bowman must be pretty fast to keep toe to toe with Willis.
