Wednesday Quickies: QB Lynn Bowden Edition

Could we see more of Lynn Bowden at QB this year?

We know that Lynn Bowden will be one of Kentucky’s most dangerous offensive threats this season, but could he also throw a few passes this year?

According to a report in the Lexington Herald-Leader, Bowden was throwing passes at the practice yesterday, leading to the idea we may see Bowden bring forth his QB talents from high school.

Bowden threw four passes during his freshman season but only one last season. We know he has an arm, but it will be interesting to see how Eddie Gran uses Bowden this year. It would be in Kentucky’s best interest to find a wide variety of ways for him to touch the ball and use his explosiveness and versatility to keep defenses guessing.

This also doesn’t seem like a QB issue as it may seem on the surface, but simply another wrinkle in the offense to mix things up and keep opposing defensive coordinators on their toes.

I’m pretty excited for what this offense will be able to bring to the table this season.
