Bowers admitted that the first two days of the draft were ‘grueling’ wait for him but, unsurprisingly, he will be further driven by his lower-than-expected draft slot. He also dismissed any long-term concerns over his injury.
“I’m definitely motivated,” he said. “I’m ready to get in Tampa and show everybody what I’m capable of doing. I’m going to show them they picked a great athlete and a great guy. I’m ready to get down there and go to work.
“The knee is fine—it’s getting better every day. I’m just ready to come to Tampa, get with the rest of my teammates and get ready to win a championship. It’s all about teammates and teamwork and I’m ready to start building a relationship with those guys.”
Bowers is eager to see what he and his young teammates on the line can do together.
“It’s going to be exciting,” he said. “They have those great guys. Gerald McCoy’s there, they just drafted AC in Adrian Clayborn and [now] myself, we’re all just going to combine and just give them everything they’ve got. We’re going to be the young guys that try to take that team to an NFL championship.”
