Sucks for us, in that it's one fewer player available when we pick.
Conversely, it could be good for us if he's there when we pick in the 6th and they decide to take a chance on him.
Do you think he would drop that far?
I would think that if he just worked out too hard trying to increase his 40 times and to lose some weight for the combine and pro days leading up to the draft than teams might not be so hard on him in the draft.
Now if this is something that he has had problems with off and on during his college days that would be a different story.
But stress fractures are not some rare debilitating problem and is normally an easy fix with time and rest.
