With the NFL draft just over a month away this is probably the worst time for a player to pick up an injury.
But unfortunately that is exactly what has happened to Brandon Thomas, a prospect out of Clemson.
As reported by Pro Football Talk, the offensive lineman tore his ACL during a workout session last week.
A healthy Thomas had been projected by many to be taken in the late-third, or fourth round of the May event but that has been put in jeopardy following the news that Thomas faces a lengthy spell of rehabilitation.
NFL teams may now be wary of drafting a player who they will be unable to put into training camp immediately and the news could prove a financial blow too with Thomas set to miss out on thousands of dollars worth of bonuses should he find himself a contract.
Thomas will be hoping his strong performances for the Tigers will be enough to convince prospective employees that he is still worth taking come Radio City, May 8th.
