Oklahoma State offensive tackle Russell Okung was off to an impressive start in the scouting combine, putting up the second-most reps in the 225-pound bench press, running the 40-yard dash in 5.17 seconds and generally looking like one of the draft’s more athletic offensive lineman.
But an injury stopped Okung from finishing the combine.
Okung tweaked his groin during a drill, and although a combine official described as minor, it was enough to keep him from doing the vertical jump, broad jump, shuttle and three-cone drill.
After suffering the groin injury, Okung worked with a trainer, did some stretching exercises and walked off the field with an ice bag.
Okung is generally recognized as the best offensive tackle in the draft, and he’s projected to go as high as the second overall pick to the Detroit Lions.
