Multiple teams have taken Jaylon Smith of their board, until medical rechecks

Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith’s draft stock may drop like crazy if he is not able to clear medical examinations. According to Yahoo Sports, three teams have already removed him from their draft boards until he has medical rechecks in April.

 Sources from all three teams expressed pressing concern about Smith’s left knee, namely about potential long-term nerve issues rather than his surgically repaired ACL and LCL. A source from a fourth team said the franchise’s doctors were asked to hold their assessment entirely until after Smith’s recheck. The consensus among the teams setting Smith aside is that a conservative approach will likely require a “redshirt year” in 2016.
