    Jamar Taylor's Kidney Issue May Have Made Him Slip to #54

    Per Rotoworld/Miami Herald:

    The Miami Herald reports a kidney issue may have played a part in Boise State CB Jamar Taylor falling to the Dolphins at No. 54.
    A test at the Combine revealed Taylor's kidneys to be functioning at just 42 percent efficiency, and full of scar tissue. The issue is believed to have been caused by medicine Taylor was taking for high blood pressure. He is expected to improve, and it doesn't appear poised to affect his football career. Taylor was one of the top senior corners in the draft, and viewed as a potential first-round pick. He has an excellent chance at earning a starting job as a rookie.
    Very interesting, maybe we got him at better value than expected. Hopefully they're right and his kidney is a non-issue.

    most places had him going second round but maybe he would go higher in round

    He may be the steal of the draft for us, fully expect him to start opposite Grimes on opening day

    You could be right but starting over two nickelbacks is not a ringing endorsement. I personally like about 5 cbs better than him but he is a solid guy

    So we're assuming that teams that passed on him had no reason?

    Kidneys functioning at 42% is ok for a professional athlete playing in sweltering heat and humidity?

    Many high blood pressure medications can do this to you liver and Kidney's if they go without being looked at for awhile. They can heal with just a simple switch of medication, if that is all it is, there is nothing to worry about.

    So then teams DIDN'T pass on him because of this.

    Or are people trying to have it both ways?

    I think he is trying to say that if this is a seemingly non-issue, why are they reporting that teams may have passed on Taylor because of it. I think what the article is trying to get at is that teams were initally worried and were unsure if it would be an issue going forward and in order to be risk averse, may have passed over Taylor for a safer pick.

    You can if you believe Ireland is smarter than everyone else.
