Clemson offensive line prospect Brandon Thomas tears ACL in workout with New Orleans Saints, report says
 
Clemson guard Brandon Thomas sustained a torn ACL in his knee during a private workout with the New Orleans Saints last week, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The 6-foot-3, 317-pound guard was projected to be a third- or fourth-round pick in May's NFL draft. The Saints are in the market for depth on the offensive line with the departures of center Brian de la Puente and tackle Charles Brown.

Tim Lelito served as the backup at center and both guard positions last season, but he's slated to be the starter at center in 2014 with de la Puente leaving for Chicago.

much worse then that...

I think he goes un-drafted now. Maybe the saints give him a UDFA spot.

Cant see it,one of the teams with a few picks late on will take a shot and even IR him for the year. I would be happy the saints doing it with him or Colvin.Even if you do not see them this year thats two quality players that will have benefit from being around NFL players for a year and getting the playbooks down and ready to go a year after

Well... maybe we can pick him up as an UDFA.

Some people felt he could sneak into the bottom of the first round. Injury sucks for him but he's not going to fall out the draft. I think he still gets drafted somewhere in the mid rounds. He's a OL that tore an ACL... not a WR or CB which would be way more concerning.

He has talent and a torn ACL. He wont drop out of the draft but prospective teams that need a this year starter may pass him by.

This is one of those items where you can either separate business from emotions or not and decide... Do the Saints draft him feeling he is damn good and a small obligation because he was hurt while trying out for us, or do they keep looking for a 2014 starter?
