11:12 AM ET 03.05 | Texas A&M Aggies wide receiver Ryan Swope impressed everyone at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine when he showed off his incredible straight line speed and overall athleticism. Swope, who ran a 4.32, 40-yard dash, said that race had an issue in people underestimating his athletic ability, but it was really the offense that he was a part of in college that didn't fully showcase his skills. Swope was beginning to get some extra attention because of his quick 40 time, but news has surfaced that could stop Swope's draft stock improving in the process. According to reports, Swope has a history of medical issues that includes multiple concussions.

Some team will draft him no matter. Detroit took a gamble on Jahvid Best who also had a history of concussions, and now looks like his career is over in Detroit.

First a thread about the commish worrying about a death on the field, then this. Hmmm. The interns are picking up a flair for the dramatic, aren't they?

Another Javid Best. Concussions become recurring in a lot of people. I don't see a lot of people 'swoping' in to draft him. LOL
