Alabama LB Reggie Ragland (heart) was diagnosed with an enlarged aorta in his heart, which isn't expected to alter his football career. It's an issue that he must watch closely, according to seven teams, and he could fall in the 2016 NFL Draft because of it.

UCLA LB Myles Jack (knee) has "buyer beware" stamped on him going into the first round of the NFL Draft Thursday, April 28. Scouts and executives are starting to shy away from him because of the uncertainty surrounding the degenerative meniscus issues in his right knee. He's expected to be available Day 1 as a rookie, but his knee likely will require microfracture surgery eventually. Teams are likely to be reluctant to use a first-round pick on him.

Fantasy Tip: Lasco has impressed with his all-around ability and performance at the NFL Scouting Combine. He's one of the more versatile running backs in the draft this year and could make for a deep sleeper in PPR formats as a rookie.

Ohio State WR Michael Thomas appears to be undervalued and will make for a better NFL wide receiver than college wide receiver, according to several teams. Thomas has been in contact with the San Diego Chargers recently and is also highly thought of by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas is one of the better wide receivers in the draft class this year, but he hasn't been receiving much love and is not projected to be taken in the first round. His fantasy value will probably be low from the get go, but drafting him as a WR5 or low-end WR4 isn't out of the question.
