Summary: Da'Quan Bowers had a dominant season, leaving many to wonder why it took so long for the light bulb to turn on. He lost his father and also mentor Gaines Adams in a short period of time, leading many to speculate that this helped him focus on the field.
Whether or not Bowers can maintain this level of play after earning an NFL paycheck is one of the knocks on him, in addition to his balky knee. Those concerns must be weighed against his obvious potential to be successful rushing the passer. At his best, Bowers could be an outstanding traditional 4-3 defensive end.
Player Comparison: Mario Williams. It does not appear that Da'Quan Bowers is going to match Mario Williams by being selected first overall, but clearly the talent matches up for him to have been considered there. He does have similar rare size and athleticism like "Super Mario," and both guys can hold their ground against the run.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
