    Surely the FO didn't operate in a vacuum and was well aware of this. LIkely, that's why we took that second CB also. Most important is putting Taylor in a circumstance with the potential to enhance his health, not diminish it.. and then set up regular monitoring protocols. If he fell out of the late first round strictly due to this medical concern, then if our medical staff can get him normalized, we've made a he3lluva pick. If not, then we swung and missed. Bracket that vs RG3, whose draft rights were acquired for a king's ransom, already with an injury and concussion history in the less competitive and violent NCAA. It was a calculated risk by Washington that has paid dividends the first year but also provided plenty of confirming cause for concern. In RG3's case: high risk high gain, in ours: medium risk/medium to high gain. In both cases: only time will tell.

    He hasn't been affected on the field in the past, he says he feels fine and the doctors told him the kidneys will improve now that they switched his medication. Until it becomes a medical problem for him that it starts affecting his daily life(doesn't sound like it will), I wouldn't really worry about it. I am sure it scared some teams away, just like Star Lotulelei's heart condition scared teams away. The fact is they caught it at the combine and he can now make the adjustments to prevent a major problem in the future.

    True. In reality, does Ireland really care about this issue long term? If the docs told him that this kid should be able to play for next 4-8 years at a high level, I'm sure that's all he needed to know.

    This a business, so there is no sympathy from management regarding this kid. If he can't play year 2 due to this issue he will be cut - it's a simple as that.

    i heard he needs surgery. Would you donate one of your kidneys if it meant he would be the dolphins best corner since surtain?

    The point he was trying to make was about the judgment of each team's medical staff and their tolerance for risk. Miami's doctors were more concerned about Drew Brees' shoulder than New Orleans' doctors were. Accordingly, other teams may be more concerned about kidney conditions than Miami's were.

    There are several factors here.

    The function and the scarring.
    The function can improve because if there was a threat it could hopefully have been removed.
    Scarring is dead kidney that doesn't come back.

    Regardless if he has near total recovery from this his kidneys will never operate at 100%. That is not a huge issues since we have more kidney reserve than we need(hence why folks can donate a kidney).

    The problem that I see is that he is a young man who already has issues with his blood pressure(high blood pressure destroys the kidney over time) and who is going into a job that is potentially very taxing on his body. Notably dehydration is a very common cause of acute kidney stress.

    He should get daily blood pressure monitoring and monthly sampling of blood and urine.

    i don't know anything about this but if this is true wouldn't have other teams been able to obtain this type of info or logic as well.
