|by TigerNet Staff - Monday, March 14, 2011 1:37 PM||
Pos: DE Height: 6-4 Weight: 277 Hometown: Bamberg, SC (Bamberg-Ehrhardt HS) Years Played: 2008 - 2010
According to former NFL coach Brian Billick:
"When you evaluate his performance at Clemson, you see an athlete that plays a lot stronger than his 22 repetitions would suggest."
"He has an aggressive bullrush off the edge that violently stuns the offensive tackle and gets him off balance."
"Although he doesn’t have elite quickness on the snap, he will be able to work on his timing and explosion off the ball with his position coach in the NFL."
"Bowers is also very sought against the run, which is rare for an elite pass rusher."
"He stays strong as the line of scrimmage and sheds block without giving any ground at the point of attack."
"Bowers plays with great leverage and holds up surprisingly well against the double team."
"This makes him a top candidate to play End in a 4-3 scheme that will give versatility in both the run and pass rush game and because of that, I have him ranked as my top Defensive End in this years draft."
