2011 NFL Draft Results: The Buccaneers Score Big with Clayborn, Da'Quan Bowers
The Buccaneers Defense Will Be Feared Throughout The League
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers with their first two picks, adding them to a defense that already had Gerald McCoy on the line.
The Buccaneers now have, on paper, one of the best defensive lines in the league. In a division that has Matt Ryan and Drew Brees as established quarterbacks, and possibly Cam Newton in Carolina if he lives up to his potential, the Buccaneers now have an answer to all of that.
There are worries about Clayborn's shoulder and Bowers' knee, but Clayborn made it through college with his shoulder condition to great success and Bowers' knee is what it is.
Bowers either will come out and have a great career or his knee will give out on him. The Buccaneers took a chance, and even if Bowers goes down, they still have Clayborn.
Mason Foster was a great pickup as was Luke Stocker. Stocker will be pencilled in as Kellen Winslow's replacement as Winslow's knee is much worse than Bowers and only has so many games left in it.
