Default McClain has Chron's Disease

Star Alabama MLB Rolando McClain stunned the pro scouting fraternity when he disclosed after he became ill during the Tide’s pro day today that he has had Crohn's Disease, an inflammatory intestinal condition, since his freshman year in high school. McClain reportedly treats the condition with medication and obviously has been able to play with it a very high level to date, however, its certain to be a major red flag for pro teams heading into the 2010 draft at which McClain had been rated as a top 10-15 prospect.

****. Now I'd rather have Spikes in the 2nd, depending on what this actually does.

Feel bad for the guy. He will lose millions because of a disease. I bet he still performs at a high level in the pros. I will root for him unless he goes to a rival team.

What does Chron's actually do?

I like McClain alot, and if it doesn't affect him on the field, I could care less.

If I remember correctly, if the medicine doesn't work/fails they have to remove the small intestine and put in colonoscopy bag

This may drop McClain into the middle/lower portion of the 1st round, but I highly doubt he falls out of the 1st.

This is who I had hoped we got in the first. With this news I would assume you trade back if you can, get OL and then maybe Spikes in the second and you pick up a second second round pick with the trade back and get the best DT still on the board........

David Garrard has it, and when treatment failed had a foot of intestines removed:

Cody, McClain work out


Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Terrence Cody keeps shrinking as the NFL draft approaches.
The two-time All-America nose guard weighed in at 348 pounds at Alabama's pro day on Wednesday, with representatives from all 32 NFL teams present.
That number has come down from 370 before the Senior Bowl and 354 at the NFL combine two weeks ago.
Cody thinks that weight loss and conditioning proves his commitment and discipline to NFL teams and makes him a viable candidate for the first round. He also did 22 repetitions at 225 pounds on the bench press.
Linebacker Rolando McClain was also among those working out. He didn't run the 40 at the combine citing a nagging hamstring problem. He was also hurting after the workout with a flare-up of an intestinal disease.
Saw this on ESPN website

Hmm, very interesting. I still like McClain, but I need to do some research on this disease.

Chron's is a serious disorder and is painful enough to immobilize a person. Its bad stuff.

Inflammatory disease of the colon. Should be pharmacologically manageable, and hasn't affected his football yet. IMO, shouldn't change his stock. He's still a player if you thought he was before, and he's still overrated if you thought he was before.

Don't hate on the pre-existing conditions.

Are you kidding? I wouldn't draft him at all in any round at this point.

Well it depends how bad your crohns is. If it doesnt bother him all the time, might not be the worst thing. if its really bad, he could be severly fatigued.

ive had it for 5 or 6 years, and im really lucky, the medicationis working perfectly and most time i dont even know ive got it, ive only had 2 flare ups, and they arent kiddin when they say it can be painful, ive never given birth to a baby but id guess that this is pretty much what it feels like, hard to do anything when your intire mid sections is squeezing you from within, that and you cant get more then 5 feet from a toilet at any time cuz of well you know.

the nice thing about it is that the medication i get for it is also given to people with really severe arthritis, so i wont ever have to worry about arthritis as long as i keep getting my drugs.

the bad thing is the drugs are friggin expensive, i go every 8 weeks for a 3 hour infusion, if paid for it would cost me $5600.00 and a half day off work
