2011 NFL Draft: Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers to Hold Workout April 1st

The agent for Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has sent out an email to some members of the media informing them that Bowers will hold a workout April 1st at Clemson:

"Da'Quan Bowers will hold a private workout at Clemson's campus on April 1, 2011, beginning at 9:00 a.m.  Da'Quan is eagerly looking forward to his opportunity to work out in front of NFL coaches and decision-makers.

Recent reports that Da'Quan's knee has not healed as well as expected are 100% inaccurate. Contrary to those reports, Da'Quan has progressed well ahead of schedule."

It appears that he will not be participating in Clemson's pro day March 10th.  Bowers is regarded by some as the best player in this draft, but NFL teams haven't gotten the chance to see how he looks coming off of the knee injury.  The article linked above mentions something I didn't know- some players go back to Indianapolis on April 8th to get a medical "re-check" so that teams have the most up to date information.

You might remember that Bowers was the Titans pick in the MCM community mock.
