Re: Clemson offensive line prospect Brandon Thomas tears ACL in workout with New Orleans Saints, report says

We have an extra 5th round pick and two Pro Bowl guards. If he even last that long, he'd make a high upside option at a position we can afford to wait on. A year or two from now he could become one of Grubbs or Evans' replacement.

We shouldn't feel obligated to spend a draft pick on him because he hurt himself here. We should draft him if we feels he's the BPA at the time or whether or not he can be helpful to us in the future. Obviously we like him if not we wouldn't have brought him in here. So if the pick is right, he makes as a very sensible pick.

throws in my Dozier and Turner plug again as preferred guards in the draft

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I think he goes un-drafted now. Maybe the saints give him a UDFA spot.
I would spend a 6th on him. I saw him going in the early 2nd in some mocks. Kid could be a stud. Steal him in the 6th and sign him cheap. He could wind up starting in 2015.

I personally have had enough HURT players.

Sorry to hear he hurt himself, it's a shame and I really hate it for the kid, but I'll pass on taking him.

I would be concerned that he hurt himself in a non-contact drill, but if he's still available late or as a UDFA, sign him up and we'll see what he's got next year. It's the classy thing to do and costs you almost nothing.

Feel bad for him. Draft a month away and having such a bad injury. He would probably make a good project to have in the locker room learning everything this year if we can pick him up late or as a UDFA.

I hate for that to happen to the guy. What I wonder is if they have some type of insurance that covers atleast rehab and stuff for him. I mean he is not employed yet but it did happen at an NFL function..?

If he can't make it through a workout, how in the hell does he make it through training camp?

Keep in mind these guys have been working out non-stop for awhile know preparing for these work outs. If he is a FA I'd sign him and put him on IR.
