A lot of mocks have him gone by our second round pick. It's going to be interesting to see where he falls.
The fact that his injury was a lateral meniscus tear (much
less likely to be reinjured than medial meniscus) which was surgically REPAIRED should allow him back to regular activity by 6 weeks postop, with plenty of time to build strength before OTA's, if they are held.
