Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers, a candidate to be selected in the top five of April's draft, will hold a private workout on campus on April 1.

"Da'Quan is eagerly looking forward to his opportunity to work out in front of NFL coaches and decision makers," agent Joe Flanagan said.

One of the things evaluators will want to see at the workout is the health of Bowers' right knee. There were reports that Bowers was not fully healed from the injury — a small tear — he suffered in October against North Carolina State. Bowers played through the injury and said at the NFL Scouting Combine that "it hurt a little bit but not enough to stop me from playing. After the season, I decided to go ahead and have it repaired."

Bowers only performed on the bench press at the Combine, choosing to wait for a full workout at this private event at Clemson.

Flanagan disputed reports that Bowers has been slow to progress in his rehab.

"Recent reports that Da'Quan's knee has not healed as well as expected are 100 percent inaccurate," he said. "Contrary to those reports, Da'Quan has progressed well ahead of schedule."

The Panthers and Broncos, owners of the first two picks, already have shown strong interest in Bowers during the early stages of the pre-draft process.
