Top prospect DT Star Lotulelei has a heart condition.
Sounds like it could be serious.
Lotulelei was discovered to have an abnormally low Ejection Fraction, detecting that the left ventricle of his heart was pumping at only 44 percent efficiency, sources said. The normal range is between 55-70 percent efficiency.
The 6-foot-2, 311-pound Lotulelei will undergo further testing in Salt Lake City in an effort to seek more clarity with the condition, a source said. If it's a confirmed chronic condition, medical experts consider it an indication of possible heart damage.

I think people forget that although it works for NFL, being 6'2'', 311 pounds is not very healthy, no matter how much of it is muscle or whatnot, and that can weigh on your heart some.
