Had to do this! Through 3 games, Bowman is leading the team in tackles. I did not think that was possible (to lead a team in tackles that has Patrick Willis on it's defense). Willis is a stud, we know that. Bowman is not that far behind. Man this kid can play. He is a force vs the run. Very solid in pass coverage and he has shown he can rush the passer coming up the middle on a blitz or from the outside where he has some pass rush moves. This kid is playing at pro bowl level.
We are in great shape at ILB for the next 5+ years with Willis and Bowman. What a great duo!
IMO, we have 5 guys on the defense playing at pro bowl level right now... Willis, Bowman, Justin Smith, Ray Mac and Carlos Rogers. If Goldson and Spencer can stay healthy and Aldon Smith can develop on the fly this season. Our defense could get us to 8-8 and the division title.
