Da’Quan Bowers: Designated SackerSeptember 8th, 2011
Many, many pundits believe that the steal of the draft this spring was pulled off by Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik when he plucked a free-falling Da’Quan Bowers in the second round.
The Clemson defensive end may have been one of the first players selected had not rumors about his bum knee surfaced and spooked NFL teams.
While Bowers may not start, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN believes Bowers will see significant playing time, sort of a designated pass rusher, so he wrote in a recent BSPN NFC South chat.

You think Daquan Bowers will tear it up this season boy? I love me some Clemson!
We’ll see. I think they’re going to start him off as a situational pass rusher. Not a bad thing because that’s what he does best.
That’s not a bad way to bring a guy along. The Bucs now have a bit of a luxury at defensive line. Let Bowers do what he does best and slowly indoctrinate him into life in the NFL. If he’s able to swim, let him go into deeper waters.
Depth on the defensive front is a very good thing.
