Another top cornerback in the 2017 NFL Draft class has watched his draft stock take a hit thanks to an injury during his Pro Day. According to reports, UCLA football star Fabian Moreau suffered an injury during his bench press workout.
The chest injury forced Moreau to withdraw from his remaining drills.
Why it was a disappointing setback, the injury does not appear to be too severe. Moreau said the injury was a “little strain” and head coach Jim Mora described the injury as “nothing to worry about,” via Omar Ruiz of the NFL Network.
“It’s being evaluated. I don’t think it’s anything serious. I know he’s back out here now. He’s not working out. He did everything at the combine and had good numbers. A lot of guys decide to stand on what they did at the combine. Some guys come out and try to improve it,” Mora said.
“Fabian, I think his numbers were good enough at the combine that for him to come out here and work out today isn’t that important. And all these teams that are really interested in him will be back to see him in an individual workout as well. So anything that happened to him I believe is minor and nothing to worry about.”
As long as the injury does not knock Moreau down draft boards, he could hear his name called in the first-round next month.
