Clemson OL Brandon Thomas, a top interior lineman prospect in the upcoming NFL draft, has suffered a torn ACL, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.
Thomas was expected to be taken as high as the third round in the draft before the knee injury, which occurred during an offseason workout last week.
After a strong Senior Bowl performance, Thomas, who played multiple positions on the line in college, was being looked at primarily as a guard by most draft evaluators.
