Isaiah Battle of Clemson could be drafted in the Supplemental Draft

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, Representatives from 26 teams are attending Battle’s workout today. Battle could become the first player drafted since Josh Gordon in 2012.

Clemson OL Isaiah Battle, eligible for Thursday supplemental draft, has 26 NFL clubs on hand for his Pro Day today, per school official.

While it is unlikely a team uses a top 3 round pick on him, a team could be very willing to use a late round pick.  Battle started 11 games at left tackle last year for the Tigers.  While his on field abilities are solid, his off-field character concerns could make him fall. 

The offensive line coach from the Buffalo Bills, was on hand Tuesday for the pro day workout of Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle. 

 

I have been told by many he has problems with marijuana use.  If a team can overlook that, he could be selected high, especially considering he would be a day 1 or 2 pick if he was to stay in school. 

Update:

Battle (6-foot-6 1/8, 312 pounds) went through a workout that was held indoors and run on FieldTurf.

Battle ran the 40-yard dash in 5.29 and 5.21 seconds. He had a 24 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-5 broad jump. He performed 12 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, but had this exercise cut short because of a cramp in his arm.

Battle has an 85 1/4-inch wing span and 35 3/8-inch arms.
