The news comes just about a month after Lotulelei was held out of workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine after doctors discovered a heart condition causing the defensive tackle's heart to pump at less than maximum efficiency.
Lotulelei checks out as the second-best player in the draft based on our top 200 overall rankings. He's pegged by some as a nose tackle, but Lotulelei has the ability to play multiple positions in various defensive alignments. Prior to the news about his heart condition at the combine, Lotulelei was a consensus top-five pick in April's draft.
NFL teams will undoubtedly do due diligence when it comes to Lotulelei's heart. If he checks out medically, he could go as high as No. 1 overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. Along with Lotulelei, Missouri's Sheldon Richardson and Florida's Sharrif Floyd are considered potential top 10 picks at the defensive tackle position, so Lotulelei will have to prove himself at Wednesday's pro day.
