With the 51st pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers. To sum this pick up: finally. Bowers' name remained on the board for an incredibly long time considering some had him as the top player in the draft just a few months ago.
Bowers has knee injuries that has scared some teams off. According to some reports, multiple teams took Bowers off their board because of the knee problems.
If healthy, though, Bowers is a candidate to be the steal of the draft. He has undeniable talent and great production so this is a pick to keep your eye on.
