This is a serious issue for the guy. Heart surgey is a certainty at this point.

I'm not going to jump onto the 'he has a heart problem, don't take him' bandwagon. It completely depends on what exactly the heart problem is. All heart problems are serious when you're an athlete and should receive immediate attention, but some are less serious than others. Its completely possible that overall effect of this problem may not affect his playing ability or durability. We should wait to find out exactly what this means before blindly assuming he'll never be safe to play again.

I'm just thinking about this kids story. And how he came to Utah and how he was regarded as the #1 pick . To dropping significantly, most likely. He will lose millions.

For any of you smart enough to figure it out, this is huge news for us. This condition is a repairable one but does require surgery. With Floyd rising, he will drop. Other teams that have him high on their draft board may pass as well to another player or position that's nearly as high. He could easily slip to 14 with this news. It;s not certain, it's just a big possibility.

Oh boy, since he was not supposed to be there, that means the guy we really wanted now WONT drop to us, and we'll end up with a scrub in the NFL. Give me a break.
