EbenhackA few teams reportedly have concerns about Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal’s knee and hip issues, perĀ Albert BreerĀ of Sports Illustrated, to the point where a “good number of clubs” believe he is “a notable medical risk.”Breer provided more context and information behind the comments.”That doesn’t mean Neal won’t have a good, long career. But I could absolutely see where Jacksonville or Houston, or another team, may look at Neal versus NC State OT Ickey Ekwonu, who has a very clean medical, and take the guy who’s a better bet to last.
