(Rotoworld) According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Mississippi State DE Montez Sweat's heart condition has been discussed "extensively" in draft rooms across the league.

Analysis: Sweat's doctor's check-up at last month's Combine revealed an enlarged heart, a risk factor that teams will have to weigh ahead of next week's draft. Per Pelissero, there are no players in the NFL with this exact condition, though athletes in other sports, particularly soccer, have played through it and still had success. Any team that selects Sweat would have to take the necessary precautions including having a heart defibrillator accessible at all times. Pelissero also notes that a handful of teams aren't comfortable with Sweat's condition and have already removed him from their draft boards. Even with these concerns, it would be a stunner if the All-American fell out of the first round.
