2013 Carolina Panthers rookie class in review - Max Henson Staff Writer CHARLOTTE, NC January 15, 2014 – General manager Dave Gettleman’s first draft class with the Carolina Panthers was headlined by two disruptive defensive tackles – Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short. Taken in the first two rounds, the highly coveted “hog mollies” delivered in their first season. So too did outside linebacker 
San Francisco 49ers Safety Eric Reid Named to All-Rookie Team... San Francisco 49ers first-round draft pick, safety Eric Reid, was named to the All-Rookie team by the Pro Football Writers of America. All season, Reid has played tremendously well for the Niners defense and he has shown they were correct in trading up in the first-round to draft him with the 18th overall pick. Reid was selected by general manager Trent Baalke to replace former safety Dashon Goldson, who signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the off-season. In the preseason, Reid won the starting job after competing with veteran safety Craig Dahl. His exploits on the field this season have made the 49ers Faithful forget about losing Goldson via free agency. In the opening game of the regular-season, Reid recorded his first interception of his NFL career, to go along with seven tackles and one pass defensed. He followed up that performance in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks with another interception. All totaled, the starting free safet ...

Some info on Panther First round pick from last year DT Star Lotulelei; He started all 16 regular games, recording 47 tackles, three sacks and 11 quarterback pressures. He was a force against the run, helping Carolina improve from 14th in the NFL in run defense in 2012 (110.1 yards per game) to second (86.9) in 2013. An Honorable mention from me for defensive rookie of the year, in my opinion they just give rookie of the year awards to the " sexy " positions. His impact was huge and he was equally deserving of the award. -KeepPounding

Just perfect from Scott Ostler The Panthers, in response to Charlotte-based wrestler Ric Flair giving his man-love to the 49ers, have dropped Nature Boy as spiritual mascot. “They can have him,” defensive tackle Star Lotulelei told me. The Panthers had been celebrating wins with a ritual — two hand claps and a Flair-style “Whoo!” But because Flair gave the 49ers an adoring pep talk before their game in Green Bay, the Panthers have moved on. Charlotte’s new victory celebration, concocted by cornerback Drayton Florence, is a secret, and Flair is persona non whoo-ah. Flair won’t be at Sunday’s game, unless he has paid his court tab. A county judge in Charlotte issued an arrest warrant for Flair after he stiffed his estranged wife $32,000 in spousal support. Tuesday, Flair told the Charlotte Observer he would pony up Wednesday, that he didn’t pay because he was in the hospital for a month and his son died (last March). Meanwhile, Flair’s wife turned herself in and was arrested (and release ...

San francisco o line better b ready star lotulelei and the panthers are goin to smash.
Last season, Carolina drafted Luke Kuechly, who's currently one of the best inside linebackers in the league. This year it was defensive tackle Star Lotulelei. While he isn't even the full-time starter yet, every indication says he's going to be an absolute world-breaker, if he isn't already.
Will Tukuafu head up with Star Lotulelei. pang pang
I met one of my family that lives out here and she told me her first cousin is star lotulelei and she told me were related. Smh I always knew a had a cousin that's a star in the nfl.. Im going for Carolina this playoffs. Go Star!!!

Carolina Panthers rookie defensive tackle Star Lotulelei sacks Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan for the team's third sack in the first quarter.
Majority of my HIGHLY RATED Rookies are among the best performers this season... Tyrann Mathieu , Sheldon Richardson , Eric Reid , Star Lotulelei, K.Vaccaro, Alec Ogletree, Sio Moore. with others like Cyprien for the Jags, Kiko Alonso for BUF and Trufant for Atlanta whom i did not have among my top rated prospects are performing very well. And on offense the likes of . DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Warford, Kyle Long, Le'Veon Bell, D.J. Fluker where all among my list of instant impact players and have done just that. Though, Andre Ellington has been a surprise to me , I really thought S.Taylor would emerge as the star in that backfield for ARZ, maybe he still will? Giovani Bernard & Keenan Allen have surpassed my expectations, but I do not believe Bernard is for real, and the verdict is still out on Allen. Also MANY of my TOP RATED prospects from the 2011 & 12 draft that I was called a fool and they were labeled "busts" have become what I knew they were this season, and are BALLIN!

Carolina Panthers @ Arizona Cardinals Winner - Carolina Panthers This was a hard one to pick, it's pretty evenly matched. What i've based this on is the Arizona defence hasn't been as great as some expected this season, Carolina balled out before the bye week at New York on offence, so i'm gonna take them in this game. Carson Palmer has been prone to turnovers again this season, and the Carolina D is much improved. On the line and linebackers, they're very strong. Star Lotulelei has been as immovable as M'Jolnir, Hammer of Thor so far in his rookie campaign.. He's been a beast. Luke Keuchly is one of the best Linebackers in the league and he's still young, this defence should be pretty good for the next 5 years. They let Cam Newton loose before the bye FINALLY, and with 2 weeks to prepare, i think they rip this defence to shreds with the running game and play action. 34 - 27

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The agent for first-round draft pick Star Lotulelei says his client has signed a four-year contract with the Carolina Panthers. Financial terms were not released. The deal includes a team option for a fifth season. Bruce Tollner says Lotulelei, the 14th overall pick in the NFL draft, is "extremely excited to officially become a Panther." Tollner says Lotulelei signed the contract late Wednesday afternoon. The Panthers have yet to announce the move. The 6-foot-2, 311-pound Lotulelei was a two-year starter at Utah and had 20 of his 86 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. He had 6½ sacks. Earlier in the day, the Panthers announced they signed second-round draft pick Kawann Short, a defensive tackle from Purdue. THA TRUTH

Luke Kuechly last year. Star Lotulelei this draft. Panthers might have back-to-back DROYs shortly and Cam will be gone if no playoff in YR3.

Ahhh big congrats, Star Lotulelei!! Do big things in NC with Amini Silatolu!
Luke Kuechly last year, Star Lotulelei this year. Panthers are building a powerhouse defense through the draft.
So Sheldon Richardson and Star Lotulelei, two DL some projected to slip, are both gone. Wonder when Sly Williams/Datone Jones are next.
fans dancing in the streets. Luke Kuechly last year and Star Lotulelei this year shores up one of the worst run defenses.
Star Lotulelei will take up space and allow Luke Kuechly to be an even bigger Panthers need more draft help!
I think the panthers drafted the most Tongans. Amini Silatolu Sione Fua and now Star Lotulelei!
Cam Newton, Jon Beason, DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Steve Smith, Luke Kuechly, and now Star Lotulelei. are stacked!
Really like the Star Lotulelei pick for the Middle of that defense will be tough to run on with him and Luke Kuechly at LB.
Panthers have a nasty defensive side with Star Lotulelei & and Luke Kuechly
Niners need to trade up twice this draft. 1) Star Lotulelei, 2) Sheldon Richardson or Jesse Williams
Hopefully Shariff Floyd or Star Lotulelei is still available at 12.If those 2DTs are gone,Sylvester Williams or Sheldon Richardson
So my first option tonight for the would be Star Lotulelei, then Barkevious Mingo, Jarvis Jones and Kenny Vaccaro.
Who I hope the Jets draft: Star Lotulelei at 9, Chance Warmack at 13. Who the Jets will draft: Barkevious Mingo at 9, Tavon Austin at 13.
If ever want to finally stop the run, they shouldn't take another Warren Sapp. Take a run stopper. Star Lotulelei.
oh, We're on the same page then. I think they should go after Dion Jordan, Arthur Brown or even take Star Lotulelei

ESPN's Todd McShay still feels that Star Lotulelei is worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, despite a heart condition that left the defensive tackle on the sidelines at the Combine.
I think the The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a very good draft position this year. They cant sit back and wait for players to drop to them with medical concerns but are very good players like Jarvis Jones and Star Lotulelei, the can get wide receivers like Tavon Austin or Cordarelle Patterson, or then can sure up the defense with depth or even the offensive line and cut Willie Colon. As long as they make an attempt to get The Honey Badger in the second round I'll be happy lol
I think the Panthers should get either Star Lotulelei or Keenan Allen
With the Chiefs letting Glenn Dorsey test free agency and restructuring Tyson Jackson, do you think it would be a good pick to take Star Lotulelei? Todd McShay says with Kansas City locking up Albert and Bowe this would be the best choice. Analysis: Most people will have OT Luke Joeckel going to the Chiefs, even after they franchised OT Brandon Albert, and I think that’s a viable option. But I’m also convinced that Lotulelei is very much in play for the Chiefs at No. 1. First off, the Chiefs have handled their business on offense with the trade for QB Alex Smith, the re-signing of WR Dwayne Bowe to a five-year deal, and placing the franchise tag on Albert. Don’t be surprised if the focus shifts to defense in April’s draft.The Chiefs, under new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, will continue to operate out of a base 3-4. By adding Lotulelei at DE alongside former first-round picks in NT Dontari Poe and DE Tyson Jackson, it would give them a tremendously talented young front to build around. This gr ...

Utah's Star Lotulelei sidelined by heart condition at NFL combine
In the unlikely event that DT Star Lotulelei, WR Cordarrelle Patterson, OG Chance Warmack, S Kenny Vaccaro and DL Björn Werner are available when the Panthers make their first-round pick, who should they select?
From nfl.si.com - Fabian: "Each position includes a top-five ranking, plus one rising and one falling player from outside that upper-echelon group. Defensive tackles 1. Sharrif Floyd, Florida 2. Sheldon Richardson, Missouri 3. Star Lotulelei, Utah 4. Sylvester Williams, North Carolina 5. Jesse Williams, Alabama The big news here is that Lotulelei was unable to work out after an echocardiogram uncovered a heart condition that will require further tests. Floyd and Richardson, meanwhile, continue to impress scouts — both could wind up in the top 10. Rising: Akeem Spence, Illinois. Spence measured in at just 6-foot-0, though he did hit 307 on the scale. More than those numbers, though, he hit 37 reps in the bench press and performed well during positional drills. He’s probably a Day 2 pick at this point. Falling: Jonathan Hankins, Ohio State. In reality, Hankins’ stock probably held mostly steady this weekend. But he did skip the bench press — he’ll do it at Ohio State’s Pro Day in March — and w ...

More on Star Lotulelei's situation coming on He was told his condition isn't unlike 2012 4th-rounder Frank Alexander
Utah's Star Lotulelei, ranked by NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock as the No. 2 defensive tackle prospect, has been regarded as a lead-pipe lock to go off the board in the top-10 picks of the 2013 NFL Draft. That could change after his NFL Scouting Combine physical. Lotulelei's agent, Bruce Tollner, told NFL.com's Akbar Gbaja-Biamila on Sunday that the player will not take part in combine drills in Indianapolis after an echocardiogram detected a heart condition. How much will this effect the big guys draft stock?
I'm told the condition preventing Star Lotulelei from working out at combine is similar to the one Frank Alexander, 4th rd pick, had in '12.
Needs to call Frank Alexander asap. MT Utah DT Star Lotulelei will not work out after heart condition detected.
Kansas City Chiefs - Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah – With the addition of Ed Reid as their new head-coach for the 2013 season, Matt Cassel will be taking snaps for the Chiefs. Reid has proven in the past to be able to help a quarterback strive in his system. May it be Donovan McNabb or Michael Vick, Reid has allowed both of these quarterbacks to either a stellar career or re-build their career. Reid will be able to help Cassel back into form and be able to be an everyday starter in the NFL. With the first pick, I just can’t see the Chiefs stretching and picking a quarterback with other, more desperate holes needing to be fixed on their team. Lotulelei is the ideal nose-tackle for the 3-4 defense in which Kansas City runs. Adding him to their defensive line will allow the ends to play better with the offensive line focusing on him at NT. This will allow the out-side-linebackers to add pressure as well and the defensive front seven will have a better season all-around because of one man. Jacksonville Jaguar ...

JD’s Mock Draft Kansas City-Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia/Is Geno Smith the prospect? No. Absolutely not. But the Chiefs will quickly run out of QB options before their first pick in the second round. 2. Jacksonville-Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State/This is assuming that Jacksonville resigns Terrance Knighton at DT. If not, then Star Lotulelei, DT from Utah would be a good fit. 3. Oakland-Star Lotulelei-DT, Utah/The Raiders were ranked 20th against the pass and 18th against the rush this year while allowing 27.7 pts/game which is ranked 28th overall. They need a dominate big man on that line that can take up multiple blockers and stuff the run. 4. Philadelphia-Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M/Eagles were 5th worse in sacks allowed last year. If Vick is going to make it an entire season, he needs to be protected. This is a good fit. 5. Detroit-Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama/Detroit was amongst the league’s worst in INT’s and Points Allowed. He is by far the best CB in the draft but let’s see if he can ...
A Lot of sports analyst are predicting that Chargers first round pick will be one of the following: OT Eric Fisher – Central Michigan DT Star Lotulelei – Utah OLB Dion Jordan – Oregon OT Lane Johnson – Oklahoma I wish a running back was in this list
“Mel Kiper Jr saying Star Lotulelei to the Raiders with 3rd overall pick.”
The two mock drafts I've seen have the Raiders either picking up Star Lotulelei, DT out of Utah or Dee Millner, CB out of Alabama. I still think we need to draft a new front office.
In my view,we will have the explosive offense and one of the,if not THE,best runninggames in the NFL again. To make a successful regular season and win the NFC East and get homefield advantage,we must get more depth on defense, Losing Orapko and 6 others on defense after game 2 almost cost us the season. We need to get a good draft,which I am confident Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen and Jim Haslett will find us some diamonds in the rough and get us young,fast,smart defensive draftees to coach and teach the system. Here are some of the defensive rookies up for the NFL Draft in April on DEFENSE. DEFENSE wins CHAMPIONSHIPS. Defensive End 1) Damontre Moore, Texas A&M 2) Bjoern Werner, Florida State 3) Barkevious Mingo, LSU 4) Dion Jordan, Oregon 5) Ezekiel Ansah, BYU In the mix: Sam Montgomery, LSU; Datone Jones, UCLA; Corey Lemonier, Auburn; Alex Okafor, Texas; Margus Hunt, SMU. Defensive tackles 1) Sheldon Richardson, Missouri 2) Star Lotulelei, Utah 3) Sharrif Floyd, Florida 4) Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State ...
If they move to a 3-4, it will be Star Lotulelei, Jarvis Jones, or
The Chiefs badly need a quarterback, but to this point, nobody at the position has shown he is worthy of being the top pick. There are some good players at the top of this draft. But the problem for Kansas City is that none are at need positions for the Chiefs. The top of the draft is stocked with pass-rushers. That is one of Kansas City’s greatest strengths. There is a potential fit at left tackle in the form of Luke Joeckel. That will only be the case, though, if the Chiefs don’t re-sign free-agent left tackle Branden Albert. The Chiefs are interested in keeping Albert. Right now, I think the Chiefs’ best option would be to draft Utah defensive lineman Star Lotulelei. Many scouts think he can be a dominant 3-4 defensive end. Lotulelei is an impact player. It might behoove the Chiefs to try to trade down to add picks and to get a player at a need position lower in the draft. That will not be easy to do since there isn’t expected to be a hot trade market at the top of the draft because of the lack ...
The only way I see us getting a DT in this year's draft is by trading up in the first round for Star Lotulelei. In the much more likely circumstance in which that doesn't happen, these would be an interesting 5 selections: 1- Lane Johnson LT 2- Aaron Dobson WR 4- Shawn Williams SS 5- Terry Hawthorne CB 6- Dustin Hopkins K -Travis
In a new mock draft it has Star Lotulelei being the Chiefs first overall pick, would you be happy with that?
Round 1 (Pick The Jacksonville Jaguars select: Star Lotulelei, DT Utah State - In my last mock I had Jarvis Jones. That was before I knew who our general manager, head coach and coordinators would be. Now the picture is a little bit clearer. Jones simply doesn't fit what the Jags will employ her...
You guys want it? You got it! Here are the first 5 picks in my Mock 1.0 draft! 1 Chiefs - OT/Luke Joeckel 2 Jaguars - OLB/Jarvis Jones 3 Raiders - DT/Star Lotulelei 4 Eagles - OG/Chance Warmack 5 Lions - CB/Dee Milliner
Dari's Most Intriguing WVU Tavon Austin Utah's Star Lotulelei and ND Manti Te'o... what do you think?
Round 1 Kansas City (2-14)Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M Andy Reid say he will that the BPA and thats Jockel. Jockel would kick Albert to OG which was his natural position coming out of college. G.Smith is not the rated player and Reid specialty is developing any QB to play good. Jacksonville (2-14)Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah Star is the best defender on the board and can play any position along the DLine. Oakland (4-12)Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M Raiders have a lot of needs and no cap space... We have a rough offseason coming ahead but Moore is the best Pass Rusher available . Philadelphia (4-12)Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia Jones has spinal stenosis which will impact his stock but should not impact is play for the majority of his career. Detroit (4-12)Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU Ziggy Ansah is a workout warrior and with a JPP potential he is shooting up draft boards. Cleveland (5-11)DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama Sheldon Brown is 34 years old and a free agent this offseason. Milliner can pair up with Haden and make ...
I would love to see Carolina draft Star Lotulelei, Keenan Allen, Xavier Rhodes, Tyler Eifert, Tavon Austin, or Sylverster Williams or maybe John Jenkins
I like Star Lotulelei, but don't completely love him. I'd take Geno Smith, Damontre Moore or Dion Jordan before him.
I had a lot of down time today at work, so here's my mock draft. Discuss. 1. Kansas City (2-14) - QB Geno Smith - Andy's new McNabb. 2. Jacksonville (2-14) - OLB Jarvis Jones - They go BPA and get a play maker for an already nice defense. 3. Oakland (4-12) - DT Star Lotulelei - They need a DT, Seymour is old and so are most of there other DTs like Kelly and Henderson who are also mostly ineffective. 4. Philadelphia (4-12) - OT Luke Joekel - BPA and will allow them to move Todd Herremans to his natural G position. Him and Jason Peters being back will fix a lot of O-Line problems for them. 5. Detroit (4-12) - DE Damontre Moore - Avril is an average DE and Kyle Van Den Bosch is old and was one of the worst DEs in 2012. Moore fits the wide 9 better than Werner IMO. 6. Cleveland (5-11) - OLB Bjoern Werner - BPA and will give them a great power rusher to pair with their speed rusher Sheard in their new 3-4 run by Ray Horton. 7. Arizona (5-11) - OT Eric Fisher - The Cardinals had the 2 of the worst OTs in the le ...
I'm thinking with the fourth pick in the upcoming draft, we select Jarvis Jones, Star Lotulelei or Dee Milliner. I think we are going to make the move to a 3-4 defense, and we need defensive play makers right away. Drafting one of these three players will be a step in the right direction. I wouldn't mind Luke Joeckel, but i think the Chiefs take him first overall.
Mels top 3= Luke Joeckel... Damontre Moore ...Star Lotulelei... dont tell me Mel has the jets taking Geno or Matt as Thomas Day now has me fearing
If Chip Kelly persuades Howie to take Geno Smith over Luke Joeckel, Dee Millner, or Star Lotulelei...
Seems most mocks have the Raiders taking Star Lotulelei with the third pick in the NFL draft. He's the top player on Todd McShay's board.
Bill Williamson has Utah's Star Lotulelei going first in the NFL draft. AFC West mock draft: Take I
Andy Reid has never run a 34 defense. Expect the to make the switch to a 43, putting DT Star Lotulelei in play at No. 1 overall
Top 10 picks of the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. 1. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia The success of rookie QBs in recent years will not be lost on KC. The Chiefs must find a franchise quarterback. Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel are not the answer. Geno Smith has solid size (6’3″, 214 pounds) and has seen a ton of success, tossing a total of 97 touchdowns to just 20 interceptions over the last three seasons. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah Jacksonville finished 30th against the run with a league-low 20 sacks in 2012. Star Lotulelei is equally powerful as he is agile. He should help improve both areas for the Jaguars. 3. Oakland Raiders: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia Jarvis Jones may be best suited for a 3-4 alignment. However, he could serve as an edge rusher in a 4-3 front as well, using his quickness to get to the quarterback. Jones finished 2012 with 13.5 sacks, while the Raiders finished with a total of 25 (31st in NFL). 4. Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texa ...
Jarvis Jones, Luke Joeckel, Star Lotulelei, Damontre Moore & DeMarcus Milliner/Bjoern Werner are the top 5 on my big board.
I bet Star Lotulelei is top of Raiders draft board & if not there at then they'll trade down for picks & a passrushing LB later in rd1.
NFL Coaching Status!!! Oregon coach Chip Kelly might not be Oregon coach Chip Kelly much longer. According to a report from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Kelly will interview with the Browns on Friday. According to USA Today, Kelly will also interview with the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills. The interviews will reportedly take place in Phoenix. Kelly and the Ducks are in Arizona this week as Oregon prepares to play Kansas State in Thursday's Fiesta Bowl. Utah DE Joe Kruger announced on Wednesday that he's forgoing his final year of eligibility and making himself eligible for the NFL draft. "This decision is one of the toughest that I have ever had to make," Kruger said in a statement released by the school. Kruger totaled 30 tackles and a team-high six sacks this season. Utah has two gaping holes to fill on the defensive line next season as they'll also be losing first team All-Pac-12 player Star Lotulelei to graduation. Kruger isn't the only Pac-12 underclassman headed for the NFL draft. USC WR Robe ...
Now that the NFL regular season is over, let's go in a different direction and do a mock draft that's way too early: 1. Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT Kansas City fans have been tortured recently, and the first overall pick has left many fans wanting a franchise QB. GM Scott Pioli likely won't take the risk of draft Geno Smith (or Matt Barkely), leaving Kansas City to draft the best tackle in the draft. 2. Jaguars: Star Lotulelei, DT Jacksonville is another team in desperate need of a QB, but they too aren't risky enough to take a flyer on Geno Smith. The top-rated Defensive Player in the draft is more their speed 3. Oakland Raiders: Bjoern Werner, DE The Raiders finished second to last in sacks. Werner led the ACC in sacks. Note 1: Oakland would be a team to take a chance on Geno. 4. Philadelphia Eagles: Manti Te'o Philadelphia's weakness has always been linebacker, and Te'o would certainly help a lot, giving the Eagles the defensive leader they've been needing since Brian Dawkins left town. 5. Detroit Lions: ...
Looking at the top ten, I'm having a hard time seeing where the DTs fit in. Sheldon Richardson and/or Star Lotulelei could slip.
Sheldon Richardson ftw, unless they go all the way up and get Star Lotulelei
Star Lotulelei. Plug him next to Cox and the Eagles have their best D-line since White's day. Joeckel if Star isnt there.
What do you think aboiut Dion Jordan and Star Lotulelei? Also you rule out Jarvis Jones for the Nr. 2 (because he is a 3-4 OLB)?
Chief Concerns' Desmond Bailey expresses thoughts on Bowe, Manning and Utah DT Star Lotulelei
Never thought I'd say this but I wouldn't be too upset if the took Manti Teo or Star Lotulelei in the first round
Star Lotulelei made his 6th All-America team today: Phil Steele 2nd team. Earlier named 1st team by AP, Walter Camp & others.
Finally breaking into Star Lotulelei's cut-ups. No idea if he becomes a blue-chip player in the NFL but no doubt he's the total package.
I like Jarvis Jones but he plays OLB in a 3-4 right now..RT Star Lotulelei? Jarvis (cont)
Right now as I see it. The Raiders have the 3rd overall pick. 1. Geno Smith 2. Jarvis Jones... 3. Star Lotulelei
For BYU it's the fact Riley Nelson will no longer be eligible to play. For Utah it's replacing Star Lotulelei.
Was hoping for a Samoan BCS championship battle between Manti Te'o (ND) and Marcus Mariota (Oregon). But, will settle for Manti winning the Heisman and National Championship. Top two draft picks next year, Te'o and Star Lotulelei of Utah. Samoan and Tongans representing our peoples. Good Job Boys!!!
Depends on who the GM is, but between Geno Smith and Star Lotulelei if they get Branden Albert re-signed.
they'll probably too high in the draft for Keenan Allen or the top CB, Star Lotulelei out of Utah seems like a can't miss DT
Star Lotulelei moves up to his highest point ever on the Big Board, and a big showdown this weekend promises movement to come.
Star Lotulelei for Utah is a beast! Hes refusing to be blocked right now! USC better utilize the double team if they want this night to be successful.
Kyle Whittingham singles out Star Lotulelei as the player of the game against BYU.
You have a no.8 pick and have Star Lotulelei,Jarvis Jones and Barkevious Mingo on Draft board. .who Do you choose?
Star Lotulelei is gonna be the next Haloti Ngata.
Go Utes! Utah Utes Starting: RV If any other BCS-level team were returning a veteran quarterback, a 1,500-yard rusher and a future first-rounder at defensive tackle, pollsters would likely be all over it. But because the Utes are only in their second year in the Pac-12, perhaps there's some caution on voters' parts. Maybe too much, since an 8-5 team that won five of its last six is bringing back 16 total starters -- nine on the offensive side of the ball. And that includes junior QB Jordan Wynn, who redshirted last season after shoulder injuries wrecked his year. That D-tackle, senior Star Lotulelei (projected by Todd McShay as the No. 1 overall pick in his way-too-early mock draft), is joined by the Kruger brothers -- 6-5, 295-pound Dave and 6-7, 275-pound Joe -- on one of the more underrated defensive lines in the country. And that sort of size and experienced is rare in any league, let alone the finesse- and speed-driven Pac-12. Don't sleep on Kyle Whittingham as a coach. He's 65-25 in his career at Ut ...
From five-star QB Matt Barkley to JUCOs Star Lotulelei & John White, here's how our All-Pac-12 team fared as recruits
Phil Steele's College Football Preview, which will hit the newsstands on June 5, cites Utah's Star Lotulelei as a preseason first-team All-America defensive tackle and John White as a third-team All-America running back. Both were named to Phil Steele's preseason All-Pac-12 first team.
Phil Steele All-America teams are out and Pac-12 has six first-team players, led by QB Matt Barkley and DT Star Lotulelei.
Read a way-too-early mock NFL draft for 2013 and saw Utah DL Star Lotulelei atop the board. Must be a beast. What say you,
