Da’Quan Bowers says he’s “100%” despite skipping Combine workouts

Clemson defensive end and expected top-five pick Da’Quan Bowers isn’t participating in most of the Combine this week, presumably because he’s coming off a torn MCL.

Bowers revealed Saturday here, however, that he’s fully recovered.

He said that he is skipping workouts because he feels that he didn’t have the same amount of time to train for the Combine as everyone else, but that he’s been fully healthy for weeks.

Rob Rang of says scouts have questions about Bowers’ burst, regardless of his injury.  Rang believes Bowers isn’ doing any favors by skipping the Combine, but we’re not sure it matters much.

Bowers may fall off the media radar a bit as players like Robert Quinn impress in Indianapolis.  In the end, Bowers’ delay to work out shouldn’t move him down any draft boards as long as his March Pro Day goes well.

    Long and short is….if the numbers are there in the training sessions they work out. If not they don’t.

    I’m fully recovered, but i’m not gonna participate…..
    My meal ticket agent has advised me not to jeopardize my draft status by yanno running and jumping…….That takes so much training,espically when you are like 22 years old… and it could effect his bottom line…….

    Soon to be a Bronco. Da”quan and Elvis coming hard off the weak side. Awesome.
    They might even win more than four games next season.

    He is a lock for a top 5 pick. So he doesnt need to break a sweat!

    why work harder to go to a worser team and risk re-injury?

    As long as he settles for his pro day,can’t blame the kid.
