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.

So does anybody think it will cause him to slide some inthe draft.

No. If he slides, it's not because of a missing kidney. The missing kidney just makes him a little lighter and a little faster.

OK.

That last sentence was a joke but I was serious about the rest of it.
