The Buffalo Bills are continuing the trend of hosting only defensive players and quarterbacks as they prepare for the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Bills confirmed today that Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers and Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt are making their visits to One Bills Drive on Wednesday.
Bowers is a particularly interesting case. Once considered in the conversation for the first overall pick, a knee injury has hindered his ability to show scouts what he's all about. Coming out of high school, Bowers was very highly regarded. He didn't really make a big impact for Clemson until this past season. If you're willing to throw around the term 'one-year wonder,' it could certainly apply to Bowers. His stock seems to be falling because of the knee injury. My guess is that he goes off the board somewhere between picks 10 and 20.
With J.J. Watt, he's a former Central Michigan player that transferred to Wisconsin. A physically imposing player, Watt would probably fit best in a 3-4 scheme as a three-technique end. He's a mid-first round pick as well.
