Star Lotulelei performs well at pro day

Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei wasn’t able to work out for scouts at the combine because doctors found his hear was pumping below normal levels, leading him to return to Utah for more evaluation before resuming his normal workout schedule.

There were no further problems, which got Lotulelei cleared to take part in the school’s pro day on Wednesday. Joe Schad of ESPN reports that Lotulelei put up 225 pounds 38 times, had a 30 inch vertical leap and a 4.65 time in the shuttle run. Tony Pauline of reports that Lotulelei ran the 40 even though he wasn’t scheduled to do so and put up an “official” time of around 5.15 seconds.

The numbers are good across the board for Lotulelei, but scouts were already high on him as a football player. The question for teams is going to be about his medical reports, not his ability since the latter has already been well documented. It’s certainly a good sign that he was given the go-ahead to take part in the pro day, although individual teams will likely still want to see what their medical personnel have to say.

Assuming things keep checking out on that front, there’s no reason to expect he won’t wind up being taken somewhere near the top of the draft.

    this guy will be a beast in the nfl along with floyd. future pro bowl players but i think sheldon richardson will be the best defensive player in this years draft when its all said and done. relentless non stop motor type player. very strong and disruptive. i just hope either he falls to the niners at 31 which i doubt or the niners trade up to draft him. richardson in the middle, justin and mcdonald controlling the outside…wow

    Star never left the top of the draft boards, people (despite what all those terrible mock drafts might’ve led you to believe). I’d be surprised if he doesn’t land somewhere in the top-five. And yes, Shariff don’t like it.
