INDIANAPOLIS — Clemson cornerback Nate Wiggins ran a blazing 40-yard dash but suffered strained hip flexor that ended the projected first-round pick’s day on a down note.

One of the top-rated cornerbacks in the 2024 NFL Draft class, Wiggins posted an unofficial 4.29-second 40 but hobbled to the sideline moments later.

He talked to NFL Network reporter Stacey Dales before going to the locker room in Lucas Oil Stadium. Wiggins told Dales he felt a “pop” in his groin and his leg was on “fire.” But medical staff on the scene informed Wiggins his injury was a hip flexor.

Wiggins indicated he could be ready to work out at Clemson’s pro day later this month.

Wiggins weighed a very light 173 pounds at official measurements.
