Draft Scout Khyri Thornton News
08/29/14 - DT Khyri Thornton sustained what appeared to be a significant hamstring injury in the first half of Thursday's preseason finale. Thornton, a third-round draft pick this year, had to be taken by cart to the locker room. The extent of the injury wasn't known after the game, though speculation is it's severe enough to warrant placement on season-ending injured reserve for the intriguing rookie who had an underwhelming preseason.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 3/85 - Khyri Thornton, DL, 6-3, 304, Southern Mississippi...Thompson sustained his track record of taking a defensive lineman in the draft, but this pick raised plenty of eyebrows among draft observers. As the Packers reshape the D-line by apparently moving on without veterans Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly, who remain free agents, they are rolling the dice on a 24-year-old rookie from a dismal program who provides versatility and the hope of being disruptive to the football. - The Sports Xchange
01/18/14 - FIVE STANDOUTS FROM NFLPA COLLEGIATE BOWL: DT Khyri Thornton, Southern Mississippi (6-2, 301, #98)...While Vaughan and running backs Roy Finch (Oklahoma), Franklyn Quiteh (Bloomsburg) and J.C. Copeland (LSU) each showed flashes to intrigue, the most dominant player on the field was arguably Thornton. Thornton frequently took on double-teams, showing the strength to anchor as well as the burst and quick hands to swim over the top when the American Team elected to dedicate just one blocker towards stopping him. This resulted in an impressive sack of Hawaii's Sean Schroeder in the second quarter. Thornton was the flashiest of an impressive performance from the defensive linemen but he wasn't the only one to impress. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
