Clemson T/G Brandon Thomas tore his ACL during pre-draft training last week.
It's a disappointing blow for one of our favorite O-Line prospects in this draft. Thomas manhandled Jadeveon Clowney in Clemson's 2013 matchup with South Carolina, and was a 36-game starter on Tajh Boyd's blind side for the Tigers. He was a sleeper to be drafted in the first round. Thomas won't be available for his rookie NFL season, though some teams may now view him as a "value" pick.


Would have been another option for us in the first 2 rounds. Such a shame that his rookie season is wiped out.

I feel bad for him too but at least he may go undrafted and then he can control where he goes. May end up working out in the long run but for now its pretty sad

Miami lost Odrick his rookie yr. No reason this guy should get past Miami in Rd. 5.

In one of the deepest drafts of all time I can see 2 guys who if they both play to their potential can be 10 year starters in Seantrel Henderson and now Brandon Thomas who will both go in day 3. You wonder why you want late draft picks? To get stud talents who will fall like these 2 and if you hit big you'll hit huge for the future. I hope we can add many more draft picks for the draft
