The L.A. Times is reporting that DRC has only one kidney and that fact might cause some teams to pass on him in the first round. Apparently, one of his kidneys needed to be removed when he was 8 years old because it wasn't functioning.
This just may cause some teams looking for a CB to take Jenkins and Talib over DRC and have him slide down to us. Never know, its possible.
The cornerback from Tennessee State, among the fastest-rising prospects according to pro scouts, has only one kidney. He was born with two but one was non-functioning and was removed when he was 8. By all accounts, it hasn't affected his ability to play.
It could, however, give teams pause when it comes to drafting him. He probably will have to sign a medical waiver to play. That said, Rodgers-Cromartie is widely considered one of the two best cornerback prospects in the class, along with Troy's Leodis McKelvin, and is expected to be one of the first 20 players selected in the April 26-27 draft.
