INDIANAPOLIS — Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers wasn’t expected to particiate in on-field drills at the NFL Scouting Combine, and those expectations were met Monday.
Bowers didn’t run the 40-yard dash and is sitting out the other drills at Lucas Oil Stadium. He announced Saturday that he wouldn’t test at the combine because of a meniscus tear he suffered in his right knee in October.
Bowers, one of the draft’s top prospects and the possible No. 1 overall pick, did participate in the bench press Sunday (he posted 22 reps). Bowers is on the field Monday watching his fellow linemen work.
Another linemen not working out is Ohio State DE Cam Heyward, who underwent left elbow surgery. Heyward also is on the field.
Iowa DT Karl Klug is sitting out, too, because of a right hamstring strain.
