Da’Quan Bowers’ workout shouldn’t change value

Published on April 5, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Some people might be jumping off the Da’Quan Bowers bandwagon after a pro-day workout that could be viewed as subpar and the Clemson defensive end himself described as just “decent.” But NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock isn’t one of them.

Bowers chose to work out for 20 NFL teams Friday, three months after having surgery on his right knee, and he claimed it’s “100 percent.” Mayock doesn’t view Bowers’ pro day as something that should alter teams’ opinions on him. For Mayock and many others, it’s all about the tape.

“It’s a process, and in this process, medical is a big deal,” Mayock told NFL Network. “There are still questions about his knee. He fatigued during the position drills, and his measurables were not what Bowers wanted to see. … However, let’s be fair. On tape, the kid is an explosive defensive end.

“If you liked him before, you’re still going to like him.”

Any lingering questions about Bowers’ knee will force teams to do medical re-checks during their private workouts leading up to the April 28-30 NFL draft. Bowers also will undergo his own medical re-evaluation, which NFL.com’s Steve Wyche reports will happen April 9 in in Indianapolis.

Only Bowers knows the true readiness of his knee after Friday’s workout. But NFL Network’s Charley Casserly doesn’t believe prospects should work out unless they’re completely healthy.

“Don’t put yourself in a position where you give a bad performance,” Casserly said. “That’s what (Bowers) did today. I don’t think this workout served him any purpose because it was not good and he wasn’t in shape. He’s entered more doubt in people’s minds than maybe he should have allowed himself to do.”

The state of Bowers’ knee will dominate the conversation over the next four weeks. His private workouts with teams, who will be forced to do their homework, now take on even more importance.
