Clemson Pro Timing Day - Brandon Ford & Brandon Thomas

Just about a month to the NFL draft, former Clemson lineman Brandon Thomas has suffered a torn ACL.

ESPN’s Adam Caplan first reported the injury for the Spartanburg native, which occurred last week in workouts.

Thomas used strong performances at the Senior Bowl, the NFL combine and a number of individual workouts for projections as high as the second round – moving back to the interior line where he started his Clemson career.

Before the injury, ESPN had him rated the No. 3 offensive guard and CBS Sports had him the No. 6 prospectin the draft.

The two-time first-team All-ACC selection had 98 knockdowns in 2,765 career snaps, landing at left tackle for his final two seasons as a Tiger.

The NFL draft begins on May 8 in New York City with the first round, continues on May 9 with rounds two and three and concludes on May 10 with rounds four through seven.
