Ohio State center Billy Price looked like a surefire first round pick until the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, where he tore his left shoulder pectoralis on his first bench prep rep.
Now, two months after surgery to repair the injury and on the eve of the 2018 NFL Draft, Price's doctor informed all 32 NFL teams that he anticipates Price will be able to participate in training camp without restriction.
Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news:
NFL teams are being notified today that Ohio State OL Billy Price, who suffered an incomplete pec tear at the combine, is expected to be ready for training camp in July without restriction, per his doctors letter. pic.twitter.com/vYqmNlkUgu

That's a big boost for Price's stock ahead of the draft kicking off Thursday. Price saw his stock slide on concerns he might not be ready for training camp. This could be enough to get him back in the opening round.
