Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
That might lower his draft stock...
Sure, strobing lights can be a seizure trigger. So can weigh fluctuations, sleep deprivation, stress, alcohol consumption, missed med doses, co-morbid conditions, low blood sugar, and on and on. It's really varies by person.So what’s this really mean? Isn’t that kind of a problem with flashing colors and stuff? Kinda hard to see how it’ll be a problem as it relates to football but, I don’t know much about it.
His draft stock will fall. Folks talked about trading 2 #1's and 2 #2's (or close for the #4 pick whether for Lance or Fields. I can't see teams trading multiple top picks for Fields now.Maybe it makes Justin Fields’ draft stock fall, maybe it doesn’t, but I wouldn’t let it be a deterrent to drafting him. Alan Faneca had a HOF career in the NFL while being treated for epilepsy. Fields should be fine as long as he’s managing it with his doctor.
I had the same exact thought lol... The drafting team needing to manage his condition should ding his draft stock a bit, but he's still extremely good. I would think a team like NE can find a way to work around it. I'd still be perfectly happy with them taking him at #15 if he does fall or even moving up a bit... really almost a perfect storm between anonymous scouts confusingly knocking his work ethic a couple weeks ago and now this. The conspiracy theorist part of me is definitely tripped on this one.
