Yesterday it was reported that Corey Davis will likely miss the combine with an ankle injury. Today it is being reported that Malik Hooker will also miss the combine after having a pretty serious surgery:

Hooker is regarded as a top 10 prospect in this draft. There is a good chance that he is at least in the discussion for the Titans with the 5th overall pick.

Much like I said yesterday with the Davis news, this probably won’t affect Hooker’s draft status. This isn’t something that is going to be an issue long term, and there is enough tape out there on Hooker that teams know what he can do.

Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks spent a good bit of time talking about Hooker on their Move The Sticks podcast last week. They compared him to Ed Reed. If that’s true, I’ll take him with the 5th pick all day long.
