The dream of a first round pick may be over, because Fabian Moreau was injured today while doing the bench press, according to NFL network’s Courtney Fallon.
#UCLA CB Fabian Moreau suffered what's believed to be a pectoral injury during the bench press today. Full injury extent not clear yet.— Courtney Fallon (@CourtneyFallon_) March 21, 2017
He had become a sensation after the 2017 NFL Combine in Indianapolis, moving up the draft boards as possible a first or second round draft pick.
The extend of his injury is unknown, but we can only speculate it had to be pretty severe to take him out of action today. If he has a torn muscle or ligament, the numbers he put up at the combine may be outweighed by this injury.
Moreau ran a 4.3 40-yard dash, and was considered the number 27 prospect, according to CBS.
We wish Fabian well and will update you as information is available.
Update: Per Chase Goodbread of NFL.com, the injury does not seem to be anything serious and has been described as a strain. UCLA head football coach Jim Mora said in an interview that the injury was minor and nothing to worry about.
