Mississippi State's top NFL draft prospect, cornerback Will Redmond, won't get another chance to perform on the field for NFL scouts the rest of the year. Redmond is out for the season due to a torn ACL in his knee, the school confirmed Saturday.
It's unclear whether Redmond's rehabilitation will allow him to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in February, or perhaps the Bulldogs' pro day event. Either way, the senior's recovery will be closely watched by NFL clubs as those teams assess the available depth at a position of constant need in the NFL draft. Redmond had made 25 tackles this season with a team-high two interceptions. He has experience at nickelback as well, giving him versatility that could enhance his draft status.
