Da'Quan Bowers  

Height: 6-4   Weight: 288   Age: 28

Born: 2/23/1990 Bamberg , SC

College: Clemson

Experience: Season









Draft 2011

Pick No.51

Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 19 (51)

Pick Analysis: Bowers has the ability to become a franchise NFL defensive end with the potential to dominate against the run and pass. Appears capable of playing DE in different front alignments or inside at defensive tackle in pass rushing situations. Really came into his own as a pass rusher this fall terrorizing ACC opponents to the tune of 16 sacks. Can beat offensive lineman with his athleticism or power. A complete player against the run who can hold up at the point of attack or chase down plays from the backside. Bowers has been dealing with a knee injury, which has caused him to slide from once being considered a No. 1 overall candidate. But he is still one of this year's truly elite prospects.
