Clemson defensive end Da’ Quan Bowers is considered the top defensive end in the draft.

He will not workout here because he recently had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee in a game against N.C. State in October.

Bowers, who had 15 ½ sacks last season, plans to be ready to workout for the school’s pro  day on March 10.

Bowers said the top tackles he face in college were Alabama’s Andre Smith and Auburn’s Frank Ziemba.

TD would love to draft this guy. He likes drafting injury prone players.

Football is a physical and brutal sport. Everyone is going to get injured from time to time. So don’t be stupid with injury prone comments just makes you look like your IQ is below 75 or so.

Dropping Injury prone comments is most likely someone who never ever played football before, or played in powder puff games and acted like Joe Cool. Is that it SUPER STARR?!

And playing grab ass in the boy’s locker rooms doesn’t give you a good understanding of what makes a good football player. Well maybe it does for you?! NO CLUE
