Draft Scout Maurice Hurst News
03/03/18 - Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst was considered a first-round pick and potential riser entering the NFL Scouting Combine. But instead of working out for NFL teams this weekend, he is headed home. On Friday during the medical portion of the Combine, Hurst was red-flagged due to a serious heart condition. According to one source, the diagnosis isn't simply a precaution, it is a "very" serious issue that is potentially life-threatening. Hurst played 38 straight games to finish his career in Ann Arbor, and durability wasn't expected to be a hurdle with his draft evaluation. It is unclear if Hurst had any prior knowledge of a potentially serious issue. Prior to the 2013 NFL Draft, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was held out of Combine drills after the medical evaluation discovered a heart condition. However, he was cleared prior to the draft and was selected 14th overall by the Carolina Panthers. Hurst is expected to receive multiple opinions in the next month to gain a better understanding of the long-term prognosis. - The Sports Xchange
