    Star Lituleilei has a heart condition

    Looks like another player is going to fall down the draft boards. I would not take him at #9. But more now than ever I hope the jets can trade down.

    I have been watching Scout Inc's top 32 on NFL website and he has dropped down today, whereas Warmack has shot up to 2.

    That EKG could have saved his life.

    It is definitely career threatening. He is lucky nothing has happened to this point.

    Can't answer that one. But I'm guessing we'll be hearing more about it over the weeks ahead.

    First the talk of Jones dropping out of Round 1, now this.

    I have no damn clue how the Top 10 is going to play out.

    Yea, I havent seen a top 10 that was up in the air as much as this year. What a s***y year to have the #9 pick.

    That heart condition could only have been picked up by an echocardiogram, a heart ultrasound- it's not something they normally would do at Utah or in an asymptomatic undergrad.

    +1.

    If he never had any symptoms or complained of any discomfort there would be no reason to check him unless it is hereditary.

    Is everyone at the combine administered this test?

    It was likely an extension of a failed stress test. If they see anything off pattern you get more testing.

    @TonyPauline: I'm told the condition preventing Star Lotulelei from working out at combine is similar to the one Frank Alexander, 4th rd pick, had in '12.

    @NFL_ATL: A source tells @AlbertBreer that Utah DT Star Lotulelei is free to exercise after heart diagnosis. http://t.co/AzicVKVHUw
