Not good news for him.  Hopefully it turns out to be nothing. I have seen a few mocks with him going numero uno.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Maybe he drops to 13? It would be a no brainer to take him IMO..

Awesome, lets take a flyer on another damaged goods prospect.  Maybe all 7 rounds can be damaged goods.

If this guy is available at 13, you really have to take a hard look.

But heart conditions are...well...heart conditions. 

Will have to wait and see. 

We haven't really gotten much out of Bowers, IMO, to make me think this would be a good idea. 

Wait and see.

This sucks. I don't think the Bucs would have looked at Lotulelei, but it means one more chance for another team to take someone the Bucs did want. Sucks for him as a person too.

We might want to wait until we find out what kind of heart condition he has. Anyway, Simeon Rice had a heart condition, too.

Star has been my dream pick, so this gives me hope.

Ejection fraction of 44 is no joke. Hope he lives to play a long career in the NFL.

With an ejection fraction of 44, Iḿ hard pressed to belive any responsible doctor would suggest playing as 30 and below, you are subject to sudden cardiac arrest resulting in death.

Yes, I wasn't suggesting playing with a 44. Hopefully he can improve it and play. But that may not be possible,

Bust alert.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Especially when you see this in a younger person, it is evidence of a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. That's the leading cause of sudden heart failure among young athletes. The condition is rare in young people and normally doctors do not check for this in a physical because usually it will only show up on an ultrasound or MRI of the heart. That's why it's so dangerous for people in their 20s.

Cause can be many different things from a virus to high blood pressure to birth defects to drug use. Treatment and whether the damage can be reversed depends on the cause and severity.

An NFL career could kill him.

Is his condition controllable if monitored continuously?
