I just saw this. Wonder how it affects his draft stock. I think there was a DL who had a heart condition within the last few years who didnt drop that far. I wonder if the packers now moved him down the board for safety sake?

Last year DL from Michigan Maurice Hurst was widely consider a top 20 pick before the combine, at the combine he was sent home because of a heart condition. He ended up being drafted in the 5th round by the Raiders. This year the same thing happened to CJ Conrad, he is still trying to get clearance to workout and is now probably not a draftable player.

Their is a big difference between them and Sweat though, the Doctors at the combine did not stop him from working out which should tell everyone that it is probably not that concerning.

No idea on how this goes and wouldnt venture a guess.  Hard to say on the risk, but you also have to consider future medications if needed.  Some of that heart stuff can really drag you down.  Let the Packer docs make that call, it could be something very minor, but it does add a little twist to the draft.

I think they forgot to calibrate the machine because they error'd on Kentucky's TE heart condition, also at the combine.

Sweat is being interviewed by Packers.  Would welcome this pick with open arms.  May have to move up to get him, but he teams in front of us are fully capable of reaching!
