NFL Draft Results: Da'Quan Bowers Joins Adrian Clayborn In Tampa Bay

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are loading up on defensive ends a year after stocking up on defensive tackles. Picking their second pass rusher in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Bucs grabbed Clemson Tigers DE Da'Quan Bowers, a one-time projected No. 1 pick. In round one they selected Iowa Hawkeyes DE Adrian Clayborn.

As an Atlanta Falcons fan ... woo boy. If 75 percent or so of their defensive line can stay healthy, this could all add up to a very bad thing. Are we sure we don't want to spend a second-round pick on an offensive lineman? Oh, right. But with Bowers, that if is a big if, as he already has major knee trouble and will need surgery within the next few years.

This has been the only NFC South pick in the entire second round. Hope you liked it! Also, Jon Gruden calls Bowers "Light Switch."
