    After two years of excellent play as part of Michigan's defensive line rotation, 2017 saw Hurst post the top grade we've seen from an interior defensive lineman in four years of grading (96.5). He's a classic, undersized disruptor who finished with the top pass-rushing grade and the second-best mark against the run last season. His first step, low pad level and quick hands make for a brutal combination for opposing offensive linemen to handle. Hurst looks like the next great interior disruptor in the mold of Aaron Donald, Mike Daniels and Grady Jarrett.
    So I wasn't real high on Hurst but I wonder where I would be ok drafting him anyway. Maybe the heart thing doesn't drop him much. I guess it could be one of those things you either think is ok or you totally pull him off the board. But hypothetically if he is cleared now and we just don't know if it will be an issue down the road would anybody consider him in the second round? I mean I think he could be a really good 3 technique here. Certainly could be useful right now. I'm just thinking, if the guy falls to the second round, would he be worth the risk. You may end up with a high end DT in the end.

    I mean look at Nick Fairley. His career may be over because of a heart condition. But he has played in the NFL for a decent period of time. Lets say he plays 6 years, is it worth it?

    I guess I'd be ok with Vander in the 1st and Hurst in the 2nd or reverse that if need be with Jewell in the 2nd.

    He isn't Leaf at all. Think more Kyle Boller.

    I guess since all I hear people talk about regarding him is his big arm, Leaf pops in my head. Or Jeff George.
