According to Mel Kiper's conference call:

On Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers and how his injury affected his Draft status…

“He’d of been the first or second pick overall if he didn’t have the knee concern. He was a great player this year. What he did this year different from last year – and I said this back in August – is that last year he didn’t finish. He would be close, but he wouldn’t get the sack. He got hurries, he got tackles for loss, but he didn’t get sacks. This year, to be the first or second pick, he needed to finish…I have him going 12 to Minnesota right now because of the knee concern. He had a great year. He did everything he could do on the field and more to be the first and second pick, but unfortunately he has the knee concerns.”
