It appears as if Michigan defensive lineman Rashan Gary is raising injury concerns.
#Michigan DT Rashan Gary, one of the draft’s top defensive players, has a shoulder that was flagged, sources say. It’s a labral tear from college, and most believe he can play this season, then possibly have surgery afterward. It will likely have to be managed or harnessed, tho

Every year it seems like there are a few players who have injuries that aren’t discovered until the draft process. Many times (as with Maurice Hurst) this causes them to drop in the draft.
If the reports are accurate, it seems like Gary might be able to play a full season and use the offseason to recover. However, it wouldn’t be a shock if that caused NFL GMs to pass him over for other, healthier, prospects.
How far might Rashan Gary fall? He’s been labeled a top talent in this draft, if he’s available in the second round should the Lions draft him?
