We're still more than five months away from the 2016 NFL Draft, but there are still shockwaves being sent out, the ripples of which no doubt will affect what happens in Chicago next spring.

Today comes the news that TCU WR Josh Doctson, a popular early pick among media and Rams fans looking to upgrade the talent among the wideouts, will miss the remainder of the 2015 season having injured his wrist this weekend.

Doctson, a redshirt senior who played his freshman season at Wyoming before transferring to TCU, injured the wrist in Saturday's crushing 29-49 loss for #8 TCU at the hands of #14 Oklahoma St. As I laid out with the initial college football rankings, the merry-go-round in the Big XII was set to change the landscape, but the injury to Doctson changes the NFL landscape as well.

As we've said for years, the most important facet of the NFL Combine is always the medical portion which allows NFL teams to go beyond the reports they're provided on the various prospects and perform their own examinations. Doctson's will be crucial to his draft stock.

Doctson is TCU's all-time leading receiver in yards and receiving touchdowns and holds the single-season records for receptions, receiving yards and receiving TDs.
