NFL Draft Scouting Report

Defensive End

Clemson


College Position: Defensive End
School: Clemson
Grade: Junior
Height: 6-4
Weight: 275
Birthdate: 02-23-1990
Draft Projection: Top 10

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2nd round with the #19 pick.
In 2010, the Bucs drafted two defensive tackles back to back with their first pair of selections, and this year followed suit with two of the top defensive ends in this draft. Bowers slid due to injury concerns, but when healthy he is a Top Ten prospect and could be one of the sleepers of this draft.
