Tough injury for Clemson's Thomas

Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas reportedly tore an ACL working out last week and we have downgraded him from a late second-round pick to a third-round pick pending more information.

Each case differs, but the average recovery time from an ACL ranges from six to nine months. It appears as though Thomas won't be ready for the start of the season, but if the injury is only limited to his ACL, there’s an outside chance he could be back later in the season.
