In our weekend mailbag, we looked at whether the San Francisco 49ers could continue their trend of drafting injured players in an attempt to stash value for the future.It appears there is another interesting candidate available. ESPN insider Adam Caplan reported Monday that Clemson guard Brandon Thomas tore his ACL last week. He is one of the highest rated guards in the draft. Caplan noted that Thomas shined during the Senior Bowl week and ESPN's Louis Riddick tweeted that Thomas was one of the few players last season to do well against South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney.
