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.

Could be a false alarm like Frank Alexander. If that is the case and he somehow falls to us when really there is absolutely nothing wrong with him, then we would be the luckiest team in the draft.

could mean he could just fall to us. If hes there, I still take him.

You can't take him without knowing the specifics of his diagnosis and prognosis. You can't take the guy if he could fall out at anytime. The NFL is a business, and a guy with a "bad" heart is a bad investment.

We'll end up drafting him now, in the 2nd round.

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.
