Jeff Dowtin is an athletic, skilled playmaker that had a solid collegiate career at Rhode Island.  He is a player that can do a little bit of everything, and he also helped lead his team to get to two NCAA tournament appearances.  On the other hand, he didn’t seem to stand out in any one skill.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft, and in a favorable scenario, he could perhaps project into a backup point guard role in the NBA.
