Groves' condition not an issue with NFL

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn defensive end Quentin Groves underwent heart surgery on March 27th to treat Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and it's not expected to affect his NFL draft status.

Groves was treated for an abnormality in the heart's electrical system that can cause a rapid heartbeat. The condition was identified and the problem alleviated, a letter that every NFL team received says.

Groves is still projected as a first-round pick and has been visiting teams. A stop this week included Miami.

He left Auburn with a career 26 sacks, tied for tops in school history with Gerald Robinson. Groves missed two games last season with a foot injury. He finished with 38 tackles, seven for a loss.
