Bowers possibly dropping to 2nd round after medical re-check

Very bad news for a potentially great player whose future looks dim at the professional level. NFL.com’s Steve Wyche, cites a source with knowledge of the situation who claims Bowers’ checkup "showed signs of potential long-term arthritis and some weakness" in the 2010 NCAA sack leader’s surgically repaired knee. Degenerative arthritis can be a career-shortening condition. "He will have future problems because the damage is too bad," one unnamed NFL executive told Nawrocki. Said another high-ranking official, "Our doctors said (Bowers) would be lucky to play out his rookie contract." This report coming after a former report stating his medical went well. Whichever one is true, I think it's not crazy to say that Bowers will be there when the Eagles pick at 23. Will Andy pull the trigger on another star Clemson DE with knee issues?
