NFL Draft Rumors 2018: Leighton Vander Esch Denies Medical Concerns

|

We are less than two weeks away from the 2018 NFL Daft, and the rumors continue to swirl as teams throw up smokescreens and play some mental games to hide which player they may prefer. For Boise State’s Leighton Vander Esch, that meant an unfortunate rumor was making the rounds regarding his health.

Charlie Campbell of Walter Football reported that Vander Esch had been removed from multiple team’s draft boards due to medical concerns.

However, Pro Football Weekly’s Eric Edholm immediately reached out to Vander Esch’s team which is  “completely and vehemently” denying the talk of a failed medical recheck.

In fact, Edholm says Vander Esch wasn’t even in Indianapolis for the medical rechecks.

Vander Esch is currently projected as a first-round pick, with many mock drafts slating the junior linebacker within the top 20.

We will learn where Vander Esch will be calling home next when he hears his name called at the 2018 NFL Draft which takes place from April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
