Yeah, that's a big deal. If he participates in his pro-day and he gets it worked out with a specialist.... he will still be drafted in the first round. But if I've got a top 5 pick, I'm not sure I want to spend it on a guy that may not be physically able to be a franchise player for my team for the next 10+ years. That said, I don't see any way he lasts past the middle of the first round. If he's deemed healthy by a specialist.
Sure hope he's going to be ok. Heart health has a big dependency on body weight. A specialist may recommend he loose 50-60 lbs in favor of his long term health.
