There have been rumors of a significant injury suffered by North Carolina State defensive lineman Kentavius Street. Draft Analyst can confirm the rumors.

During a private workout for an NFL team last Friday, which included multiple defensive linemen from North Carolina State, Kentavius Street suffered an injury which turned out to be a torn ACL in his right knee.

The injury was confirmed by an MRI on Monday. 

Street was unable to complete the MRI earlier due to the holiday weekend. We have been told he will undergo surgery to repair the torn ACL in the next couple of weeks. Sources close to Street say his attitude about the road ahead of him is phenomenal. 

Street, who started 34 games for the Wolfpack, ran 4.87 in the 40 at the combine before injuring his hamstring. Street entered the season graded as a free agent by NFL scouts but presently ranks as a fifth-round prospect on our defensive end board. He finished off a terrific senior season with a dominant week of practices at the Shrine Game. Several teams project the fierce lineman as an interior pass rusher on third down, and NFL evaluators love his fiery approach.
