Bubba McDowell

Defensive Back * 1989-95

Bubba McDowell was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1989 out of the University of Miami. McDowell played safety from 1989-94. After earning a starting position as a rookie in training camp, he also went on to make the All-Rookie team. McDowell was one of only four defensive players to start all 16 games during the Oilers’ 1992 season. He ranked first among Oilers defensive backs with 91 tackles, tied for first in fumble recoveries (3), tied for second in interceptions (4) and was second in passes defended with a career-best of 13. He finished his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers in 1995.
