Auburn’s top projected draft pick’s stock may soon be dropping.
Former offensive tackle Shon Coleman is not expected to participate in on-field workouts this week at the NFL Scouting Combine due to a knee injury, according to AL.com’s Brandon Marcello.
Additionally, Coleman is not expected to be able to be ready for Auburn’s Pro Day on March 7 either.
Coleman, a 6-foot-6, 313-pound offensive lineman, is scheduled to be cleared sometime in mid-April, per Marcello.
Coleman did participate in the bench press test at the combine, posting 22 repetitions.
The tackle underwent surgery to repair a torn MCL in his right knee after the 2015 college football season came to an end.
Coleman started 25 games at left tackle for Auburn each of the past two seasons, while appearing in 32.
In 2010, Coleman was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia before ultimately returning to the football field in the spring of 2012. After redshirting, he became an integral part of the TIgers’ offensive line.
The former Auburn standout is considered one of the top run-blocking tackles in the 2016 draft class and was projected to be drafted in the early rounds.
