Top NFL Draft prospect to have heart surgery

Hyped by on February 25, 2013 Website:

A player that several analysts have pegged as a top-five prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft did not work out at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Utah DT Star Lotulelei and his agent announced that he will not participate in any drills at the Combine after it was determined that he has a heart condition. His agent, Bruce Tollner told reporters that his client will seek advice from a heart specialist later this week.

During a physical examination, it was discovered Lotulelei is suffering from a heart abnormality regarding his left ventricle, a chamber in his heart. The chamber was reportedly only pumping at 44% efficiency where normally 55-70 percent is considered acceptable.
