That means we can definitely write off one of the top 3 DT's, since now there only 2 top DT's. Means also that the 3 OT's will be gone.

Lotulelei's left ventricle is pumping at 44 percent efficiency - normal range is 55-70 percent. He will undergo more tests in Salt Lake City

Depends on ho bad the heart condition is. If it is repairable he will still go high.

Nope. He won't. He'll drop, if it requires surgery. Heart surgery is nothing to be taken lightly.

Heart issues in a man whose job requires that he weigh a little over 300 pounds and exercise intensely...this is going to end well.

yikes. not cool for him.

i mean this isn't just something that could cost him a couple million...this is something that could cost him a career.

good thing for him is that they found it at all. if it wasn't for this process, it could have gone unnoticed and may have been something to cause him serious troubles down the road.


for us it just means that less talent will fall to us, but we'll still have a stud with the first pick.

<p>Who knows, it could be a false-alarm. I recall Frank Alexander had issues with his results, which suggested NFL docs to believe he had a heart condition, which further testing revealed his heart was in good condition.

How do you not catch these things in college? I guess in-depth physicals are not required because it would interfere with the schools' cash-cows.

a big fat man bigger than most should be who is asked to take on more strenuous activity than the human body should be able to endure for long periods of time in immense heat at training camp...with a weak heart.

no thanks.
