Draft Scout Chris Owusu News
01/03/13 - DE Ernest Owusu was signed to a contract for 2013 by the Buccaneers.
09/03/12 - WR Chris Owusu was released by the 49ers in their final cuts. The former Stanford star then was signed to the Chargers' practice squad, where he might have a better chance to get called up to the active roster.
04/18/12 - Stanford tight end Coby Fleener, a likely first-round selection in next week's NFL draft, attended the 49ers' local pro day on Wednesday. Fleener met with 49ers coaches but did not participate in any of the drills. Fleener is a possibility for the 49ers to select with the No. 30 overall pick. Fleener caught 34 passes for 667 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior. Stanford wide receiver Chris Owusu, who did not return to action after an early-November concussion, was also in attendance Wednesday but did not take part in drills. Owusu received full medical clearance after the season. He ran blistering 40 times from 4.31 to 4.36 seconds at NFL scouting combine in February. - Matt Maiocco, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area
04/06/12 - The Ravens’ scouting system, envied around the league, has remained remarkably consistent under General Manager Ozzie Newsome. There have been a few tweaks along the way to adapt to technology and the times, but the organization still doesn’t belong to the two main national scouting services, and still does put the onus on their own area scouts to do the bulk of the heavy lifting. "We still have our area scouts responsible for every player that’s being drafted in their area. So, a lot of that has not changed,” Newsome said Wednesday at the team’s annual draft luncheon. “There’s a lot more information, but I think there’s a lot more misinformation, and our scouts are responsible for getting as good information as they can for us and bringing it back to this group here so that we can make decisions. We would much prefer our scouts talking to strength coaches, secretaries at the school and people like that then living off the Internet." One area, however, that the Ravens, like the rest of the sports world, are now paying particular attention to are past head injuries. The Ravens’ scouting reports on draft prospects now include mention of how many concussions a player sustained in college. “That information is out there,” Newsome said. “As far as what we do, and most teams do, is once we get guys here, we’ll get a baseline test done with those players, so that if a concussion occurs, then we have something that we can refer back to. But, it is something now that throughout the league - and in all professional sports and on the collegiate level - that everybody is spending more time looking at.” - Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun
03/22/12 - Stanford Pro Day: Having turned in one of the Combine's most impressive all-around workouts at any position, Owusu elected not to participate in timed events Thursday but he starred during receiver drills. Owusu, who was clocked at 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis, showed that his explosiveness translated nicely onto the field Thursday, running sharp routes, showing generally reliable hands and providing the speedy target on the outside to help Luck alleviate any concerns about his arm strength or touch on the deep ball. Scouts know Owusu well. He had been graded as a possible top 100 prospect heading into his senior season before concussions cut his 2011 campaign short. If teams are willing to pass him medically, there is no question he has the talent to help a club as an outside vertical threat and kick returner. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
