Until he has further tests, it is impossible to make a reasonable guess.

In fact, if the condition is a result of heart damage, as the article suggests is possible, he might never play football again.

Not much if he participates in his pro day
Heart condition? Holy Smokes!
That's terrible news.
Not far - many pro athletes have overcome various minor heart conditions
Wow..
Yea, feel bad for the guy. Praying this is no big deal
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.
Hey Jesse played for us with a bad ticker...If he's available when we pick we should pull the trigger.
He my #1 prospect in the draft. I had him going no later tan philly at 4.

If he falls out of the top ten, i would seriously consider making a jump for him.
but he could be risk anywhere. I wouldn't jump up the board for him but if he fell to #32 I wouldn't be opposed to taking a steal like that.

Are the conditions comparable?

Man, I hate to be the jerk here, but we have pick #31. I REALLY don't want to explain why...
