Notre Dame OT Liam Eichenberg, one of the draft’s top O-linemen, is among the Fighting Irish players who isn’t in Indy for medical evals after testing positive for COVID-19 after his Pro Day, sources say. DE Ade Ogundeji & OL Aaron Banks also tested positive & aren’t in Indy.

When Notre Dame held their pro day last week, the Arizona Cardinals were one of several teams with offensive line coaches in attendance, presumably to get a look at the Fighting Irish’s offensive line prospects.
Two of those linemen the Cardinals watched — tackle Liam Eichenberg and guard Aaron Banks — were scheduled for medical checks in Indianapolis.
They had to miss those medical checks after testing positive for COVID-19, as reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Eichenberg is one of the top tackle prospects and is frequently mocked either in the second round or even sometimes in the late first round.
Eichenberg could potentially be in play for the Cardinals in the second round, so these medical checks become important.
However, as Rapoport notes, with three weeks remaining until the draft, there will still be time for those medical checks to happen.
