Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers, the man who Silva put at No. 1 overall in his first Mock Draft, will only lift weights at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news, which doesn’t come as a huge surprise following reports that Bowers underwent surgery for a torn meniscus after his season.
Bowers is expected to participate in his school’s Pro Day, and previous reports indicated he was mostly recovered from the surgery. Bowers led the nation with 16 sacks last year.
