Former Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst was expected to be a first-round NFL Draft pick this season after an excellent season in Ann Arbor. However, it turns out he may not be able to play in the NFL at all after a test at the NFL Combine revealed a potentially serious heart condition.
And apparently it’s being compared to a condition that forced former Auburn player Nick Fairley to retire from football.
Hurst had 14.5 tackles for loss, 61 total tackles, five sacks, a fumble forced and a blocked kick this past season.
