Here's a little more on the news that Alabama MLB Rolando McClain suffers from Crohn's Disease, a painful affliction of the intestine that often manifests itself in rapid weight loss.
According to a report today in the Birmingham News, Eagles player personnel consultant Phil Savage, the former GM of the Browns, said the unexpected news McClain let out at his Pro Day Wednesday shouldn't affect his draft status. Savage predicts he'll go between the 10th and 20th pick, though he regarded the news as "at least a little (bombshell)."
"I was not aware of it," Savage said.
But then he continued.
"The good news is that he hasn't missed any practice time or games," said Savage. "It seems like it has been regulated well. "I don't think it'll affect his draft status."
