Kavon Frazier was expected to participate in the on-field exercises today, but apparently, sustained a stress fracture in his left foot just after finishing the bench press yesterday.
Cant workout tomorrow at the #NFLCombine due to a small stress fracture found in my foot. Pray for me and help me through this recovery— Kavon Frazier ™ (@Kay_BlackSimba) February 28, 2016
Central Michigan S Kavon Frazier, very small stress fracture in foot, will be ready for March 17 Pro Day, should be fine by medical recheck— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) February 29, 2016
Frazier, who is grouped with the "defensive backs," but is entering the draft as a safety, was one of the best performers on the bench press amongst the safeties, finishing 3rd in the group, and tied for 4th overall amongst the defensive backs as a whole.
Although he will not be able to participate in the Combine, Frazier will look to dazzle scouts at the Central Michigan Pro Day. Currently, CBS Sports projects Frazier as the 7th-ranked free safety and the 184th prospect overall, placing Frazier mid 5th-early 6th round.
The measurables looked NFL-ready for Frazier, who came in officially at 6'0", 217 lbs. Arm length (32 1/4") and hand size (9") were pro-ready as well, and scouts salivate at his potential. One NFC South scout said regarding Frazier: "I really like his potential because he's a big athlete who will hit you and immediately brings special teams value to the table."
Last season, Frazier was a defensive stud for the Chippewas, finishing with 105 tackles and an interception from the free safety spot, good enough for Second Team All-MAC honors. Frazier looks to follow a CMU pipeline to the NFL at the safety position, with Avery Cunningham (LA Rams) and Jahleel Addae (San Diego Chargers) currently on NFL rosters.
