WATCH: Former Auburn DL Byron Cowart steamrolls offensive lineman en route to sack
Former Auburn DL Byron Cowart was a 5-star recruit when he arrived on The Plains, but he never lived up to expectations. He finished his career with the Maryland Terrapins in 2018.
Now, he’s in the NFL with the New England Patriots after the Pats used a fifth-round pick on him in the 2019 NFL Draft.
On Saturday night, Cowart recorded a sack on a play in which he absolutely bulldozed a Tennessee offensive lineman, as you can see below:

Cowart has a ton of talent, he just never put it all together for Auburn. Working with the Patriots, it’ll be interesting to see what he becomes.
This was a good play, but he’ll need to do it consistently to have a major impact for the defending Super Bowl champions this fall.
