Ohio State center Billy Price reportedly suffered a torn pectoral muscle while doing the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine on Thursday in Indianapolis.
According to The MMQB’s Albert Breer, the injury occurred during Price’s third rep during the bench press drill.

Price — 6’3″, 305 pounds — is a consensus top-30 draft prospect and has been viewed as a likely first-round pick. Many evaluators have him ranked as the top center in this draft.
So, if the 2017 unanimous All-American indeed has a torn pec, this is devastating news for his draft stock.
Price tied the Ohio State record with 55 starts and was a unanimous All-American selection in 2017.
