Late last month, Silva pointed out that the draftniks have been waking up to Georgia Tech receiver Demaryus Thomas. (Actually, Russ Lande of Sporting News was one of the first draft experts to push Thomas up the board.)
But now Thomas could slide, due to a broken foot suffered Wednesday while working out, according to Tony Pauline of SI.com.
Per Pauline, the injury happened while Thomas was practicing the three-cone drill, one of the various events of the Underwear Olympics.
Agent Todd France told Pauline that it's a clean break, and that Thomas is expected to recover in four to six weeks.
"There are no long-term effects from the injury and Demaryius will be
100 percent by the time OTA's begin," France said. The agent also added that surgery is possible, if it "hastens the healing process."
Thomas averaged nearly 20 yards per catch during his three-year career at Georgia Tech.
