For the players hoping to be drafted next month by the NFL, the time between now and then is filled with training.
And holding their breath.
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas suffered a torn ACL while working out last week.
Thomas, who played left tackle at Clemson but projects inside in the NFL, could have been a third- or fourth-round pick if healthy.
But this news will cost him thousands in terms of bonus, if he’s drafted at all, as anyone who wants him knows they’ll get at most three years worth of contract for him.
