But unfortunately for MI defensive tackle Maurice Hurst, the news isn't so good. Hurst is certainly worth the mountain of work, but there's no way Hurst will be taken on Day 1 at this point unless his own further testing completely reverses course on these initial reports from Schefter.
The undersized 280-pound defensive tackle is one of the top players in this year's NFL Draft, though this heart condition certainly jeopardizes his playing future. A consensus first-team All-American, Hurst received the 2017 Bo Schembechler Team MVP award and as well as Defensive Player of the Year award.
Hurst is one of better interior defensive line prospects in the upcoming draft.
Hurst is still trying to determine the severity of the diagnosis.
Hurst burst onto the national college football scene as a senior last season, making a career-high 59 (13.5 for loss) and totaling 5.5 sacks. Schefter adds that Carolina's Star Lotulelei had an echocardiogram at his combine that showed a heart condition, but he was later cleared at the re-check.
