A true blessing as Conrad looks to begin his NFL career.

C.J. Conrad will get to continue his football career.

It was revealed during the NFL Scouting Combine that Conrad had an issue with his heart, which prevented him from working out in Indianapolis. As if missing the combine wasn’t bad enough, Conrad later announced he would miss Kentucky’s Pro Day, which would do some serious damage to his draft potential.

But on Monday, Conrad announced that he had been medically cleared, and he will have his own Pro Day in April:

Since the issue arose, Conrad has been in Lexington getting testing done to make sure this wasn’t something that would hinder his ability to keep playing football. He’s been projected as a Round 4-5 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

If teams are happy with his medical checks, he should still hear his name called sometime on Day 3.
