Da’Quan Bowers set to visit Redskins Thursday

AP

The busy visit schedule for Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers is not slowing down this week.

A league source confirms to PFT to that Bowers will visit the Vikings Monday/Tuesday, and the Browns on Tuesday/Wednesday.   We can also report that Bowers will head to Washington for a visit on Thursday.

Bowers’ injury concerns may knock him down the draft board, but his talent will make him an interesting risk/reward gamble for teams like the Redskins at No. 10 or the Lions at No. 13.

Bowers seems like a better fit as an edge rusher in a 4-3 scheme, but some 3-4 teams are still looking at him because he has the size necessary to be scheme diverse.

  1. bigger risk:

    taking Bowers @ 10 or starting Zo Alexander/Chris Wilson at opposite OLB?

    All this talk about his injury is either smoke screen or serious business. there isn’t any middle ground with a high prospect on topics like this. If the skins take him I really hope they do their due diligence in the medical exam.

    As far as Alexander and Wilson, I think both of them greatly outperformed Carter last year but Carter got the playing time due to his massive “4-3/Cerrato” era contract. This year will be different.

  2. As pass-happy as the league is now I really don’t mind the idea of bowers inside I’m the base set and moving outside on nickel downs. Well worth the risk and being slightly out of position.

  3. More than anything, this team needs offensive linemen, and a QB. In my own little world, I’d like them to take a top lineman with no. 10, and get Andy Dalton with the 10th pick of the 2nd. Don’t know if he’ll be there, but that’s what I’d like them to do.
    If they keep McNabb, it’s obvious we readers of PFT.com know more about football than the guys getting paid millions to run that team….
    And Danny if you’re reading this, steer clear of Cam Newton. Because the last 10 years have shown us that WE DO know more about football than you.

  4. Why in the world anyone would take this guy in the first round? He might need microfracture surgery, so you are going to pay him Top 10 money to rehab for a year and then he may never be back to 100%? Even worse if he comes out with a so so bill of health, then blows out his ACL or PCL a couple games in and then goes to IR for 2 years. Huge risk pass on him and let him drop down into round 2 or 3.
