Ohio State offensive lineman Billy Price had a miserable NFL Combine experience. The potential first-round pick suffered a partial pectoral tear during the bench press exercise.

The injury left Price's draft stock in flux. However, the latest prognosis for his long-term recovery is a good one.

A letter from Price's doctor at the Hospital For Special Surgery declares he should make a "full recovery" and be ready for training camp in the summer.

Here's the note from Dr. David Althek, a renowned surgeon.

Price played center for the Buckeyes but could also potentially play guard in the NFL. This enhances his prospect status with some teams.

His latest medical report should do the same.

The 2018 NFL Draft will be held April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The first round is tomorrow night, followed by rounds two and three Friday and the final four rounds on Saturday.

ESPN, FOX and NFL Network will broadcast the event.
