INDIANAPOLIS -- A prominent NFL front office executive told CBSSports.com Tuesday night that two first-round prospects saw their stock drop drastically thanks to medical issues that were discovered at the combine.

One of the players is Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones, who was reported to have a participated in the combine with a fracture in his foot. The other is Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers, who didn't participate in combine drills despite claiming to be "100 percent" after knee surgery.

The source did not say what the injuries were, though presumably he was referring to Jones' broken foot and Bowers' torn meniscus.

When I pointed out that the media was trumpeting Jones' remarkable workout numbers, the source said that's what makes the inevitable fallout from this injury so difficult. He said this news was devastating for both players.

Julio Jones dropping due to broken foot?  Didn't he still blow the thing away and poutrun all others?  I'd be interested to see how well he can do on a healthy foot.  I think if I'm a team executive, I think I jump at the chance to bring him to my team.

Agreed Bizotchs, this report is bull. Bowers I won't speak to, but Crabtree dropped as far as 10 with the same injury because no one knew his 40 time. Not only did Jones run the 40, he destroyed it, and every other drill, while proving his toughness playing through the pain. He went up boards, at least the boards of teams who get better every year rather than drafting like the Raiders or Bengals. No offense guys, if you're real fans then you already know what I mean....
