2011 NFL Mock Draft: How Will Da'Quan Bowers' Knee Injury Impact the Draft?

Da'Quan Bowers was in contention for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft only a mere two months ago.

Since then, scouts and front office members of NFL organizations have been worrying about the knee injury he sustained in a victory over North Carolina State. After not working out at the combine, Bowers has proclaimed the knee is 100 percent and won't be an issue.

However, we are in a time where every minuscule thing is being examined under a microscope, leaving NFL teams to wonder if he will need surgery, if he may have lost a step, and if they will be getting the same player who recorded 16 sacks in his final season at Clemson.

I will be comparing the picks to my previous mock draft, which can be found here (and may be a bit outdated now).
