Bringing Jonathan Cyprien's "Minor Medical Concerns" to Light

As someone who could come off the board sometime in the vicinity of the Packers' 26th overall selection, I thought I'd pass along this information on Florida International safety Jonathan Cyprien from NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock from last week's conference call with the media.

"Cyprien is interesting because teams were all over on him," said Mayock. "He's got  some minor medical concerns with some teams but he's a big, good looking kid with excellent movement skills and I've heard him all over the board from kind of first round all the way down  to the third round."

What's interesting is I haven't seen reports of any medical concerns on Cyprien anywhere other than from Mayock. He did not elaborate on Cyprien's "medical concerns," whether they're injury related or illness/health related.

I found it odd that Cyprien declined to do any drills at the NFL Combine other than the vertical jump, instead choosing to wait until his on-campus pro day.

Cyprien didn't exactly light it up at his pro day either, running 4.65 and 4.64 seconds in the 40-yard dash, according to Gil Brandt of

Mayock did call the medical concerns "minor" and perhaps it's nothing that will impact his draft stock. But in the high-stakes game of the NFL, any medical concern could be the difference between going in the first round or not going in the first round.

I thought this topic was worthy of attention for the simple fact that I can't find anything about it anywhere else. If anyone has any more information on Cyprien's medical issues, feel free to pass them along in the comments.

And if Cyprien happens to be available to the Packers and they decide to take a pass on him, this might shed insight as to why.

Here's hoping he slides all the way to 55...doubtful, but with this draft anything is possible.
