With the 2015 NFL draft process set to heat up in the coming weeks and months, Texas A&M star offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi has been diagnosed with a torn ACL.     

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin has the unfortunate news:

At 6'5" and 300 pounds with athleticism and experience at both tackle positions, Ogbuehi looked like a lock to follow in the footsteps of former Aggies standouts Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews as first-round selections. 

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller gave his thoughts on what this does to the senior's stock:

The silver lining here is that if Ogbuehi does indeed "redshirt" as a rookie, he'll have a year to add strength and get acclimated to the NFL.

If he can make a full recovery from this injury, he has the traits and talent to be a steal in the middle rounds.
