One of the more intriguing players in this year’s draft will be in the spotlight this morning, trying to convince NFL scouts he deserves a shot.
According to Jeff Barlis of ESPN.com, Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley will work out this morning, hoping to prove himself recovered from last year’s torn ACL.
Easley tore his right ACL in practice last September, giving him a matching set after tearing the left one in 2011.
While the medical issues will force him well down draft boards, he’s been a productive and explosive player in the past.
A three-year starter at Florida, the 6-foot-2, 288-pounder can be a disruptive pass-rusher, and teams will take a chance on his recovery based in part on how he looks today.
