No. 1 prospect Bowers had knee scoped

Former Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers reportedly underwent arthroscopic surgery in early January to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Bowers’ Bamburg, S.C high school coach told the paper that the standout had the surgery soon after Clemson’s 31-26 loss to South Florida in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 31.

Bowers led the nation with 15.5 sacks and won the Nagurksi Award for college’s top defensive player despite reportedly playing most of the season with the torn meniscus.

It’s unclear whether he’ll be able to fully participate in the Combine in Indianapolis beginning next Thursday, or if he’ll elect to work out at Clemson’s Pro Day or in a private session closer to the NFL Draft on April 28-30.

Bowers had been projected to be the top pick from several analysts including NFL Network’s Mike Mayock.
