Tyron Smith drops out of Combine

After participating in the bench press on Friday, USC offensive lineman Tyron Smith abruptly has decided to drop out of the remainder of the Scouting Combine events.

The news comes from Steve Wyche of NFL Network.

The reason for the decision isn’t known.  The last “Saturday surprise” at the Combine came two years ago, when reports emerged that receiver Michael Crabtree would not participate due to a foot injury that required surgery.

Smith is rated as one of the top offensive line prospects in the draft.
