The Big 12 co-offensive lineman of the year, Yodny Cajuste may have taken a minor step back in his professional career today. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Cajuste underwent surgery in Philidelphia yesterday to repair a quad injury.
The 6-foot-5, 321-pound offensive lineman from West Virginia is expected to be cleared to resume football activities in three months. That gives Cajuste plenty of time before the start of NFL training camps.
Cajuste is a lengthy offensive lineman who is a powerful blocker with nimble feet. His violent style of gameplay makes him enticing to plenty of NFL teams. Even though some refinements are needed in Cajuste’s technique, he shouldn’t see his name slip by round three of the NFL Draft.
As of right now, Cajuste is ranked the sixth-best offensive tackle prospect according to Matt Miller from Bleacher Report. Miller also has Cajuste being drafted in the third round to the Browns in his latest mock draft.
Cajuste will find out in less than a month where he will begin his NFL career.
The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville earned the honor of hosting the 84th annual player selection over cities Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Cleveland/Canton.
