I have a lot of experience with heart issues, they run in my family. The most amazing thing here is the way they are trying to minimize Star Lotulelei's actual REAL heart issue versus DJ Hayden's vein rupture. Hayden will not have any lingering effects from that type of injury once its healed, and its already healed enough to do 100% heart rate work like running the 40 yard dash.

Lotulelei's issue will NEVER not be an issue anymore. No matter what these Cardiologists found, having a severe reduction in heart efficiency is a major clinical isssue going forward. Anyone remember Gaines Adams? He Died due to a misdiagnosed heart issue. And he also was top 10 DL coming out of Clemson....

I just find some of this reporting painfully misrepresentative of the actual impact of these injuries on the draft.
