Texas Tech wideout Michael Crabtree is expected to be a top-5 pick in this year’s upcoming NFL Draft. But things may be changing. Michael Crabtree will be out 6-10 weeks in order to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. The injury, according to sources, will require the insertion of a screw in order to support that specific area of the foot.

The most significant part about Crabtree’s injury isn’t the fact that he is building an injury history, it’s that he will not be able to run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. There’s no doubt that Michael Crabtree is the absolute best receiver coming out this year, but it’s got to be a little scary when you’re drafting a guy without any speed-related stats.

Many scouts have their own opinion about what is and what isn’t important at the NFL Combine. For Crabtree’s sake, let’s hope the scouts in Seattle don’t just rely on the 40 time to judge a receiver.
