2 guys from local schools going in the top 15 of the NFL draft wwould be great. Good luck to both of them.

Two times in 10 years with the #1 pick. Two times in 10 years undefeated seasons. Two times BCS games. Two times BCS wins.

The future of football in Utah,

is Utah

Add another guy Whittingham recruited and got drafted.

Saban also has many.
So does Les Miles
So does Gary Patterson
So does Steve Spurrier
So does Chris Peterson
Gary Anderson even has a few.

Guess which local coach hasn't recruited and had drafted a single player?

And no, Ziggy doesn't change that. Ziggy had to ask to join. With that recrod of Bronco Mendenhall, Ziggy should be thankful bronco didn't recruit him!

Go make your millions Star! Making Ute Nation even prouder!

With all these Utes making tens of millions(Krueger, Weddle, Lotulelei...) Chris Hill can expect to see some very significant donations in the coming years, as Weddle has already done!

Go Utes!

Bottom line is Kiper has over reacted to Star's "condition" and Ansah's combine. If Everything checks out with Star, is there any reason Ansah should ever be drafted above Star? Even if Ansah fills a position of need, Ansah over Star is ridiculous.

Is first better than fifth?

The ESPN people seemed very shaky in pronouncing Star's surname. Obviously they have no consultants telling them how to say the name Lotulelei. Emphasis on third syllable.

I'll be a fan of whatever teams draft these two players

Chris B:

Lotulelei is not making ANYTHING right now. Wait until if/when he gets drafted first before putting him on that list of successful fmr-Ute NFL players. I read the article. I know what it says about Star getting drafted in the 1st round, but that was just Todd McShay's "opinion". As of right now, despite one of ESPN's draft experts calling for him to be the #1 Draft pick -- which would be awesome by the way -- Star still DOES have that issue regarding his health that COULD impact his draft position...or whether or not he'll be drafted at all.

Let's leave all those proverbial "September national shampionships" accolades to our WAC-wannabe neighbors to the south. If you're a Ute fan, you need to do your celebrating AFTER the game had been played, AFTER a top recruit signed his LOI, and AFTER Draft Day's conclusion.

Good luck Star!

Go Utes!

So Chris B
With all those donations, what will that do for the Ute program, will it be another year at home watching bowl games?

@ Naval Vet
Well put! I absolutely agree with all that you said. Especially the "Let's leave all those proverbial "September national shampionships" accolades to our WAC-wannabe neighbors to the south."
Too funny that was...and good luck to Star as well.

Go Utes!

'The ESPN people seemed very shaky in pronouncing Star's surname. Obviously they have no consultants telling them how to say the name Lotulelei. Emphasis on third syllable.'

And I was told the emphasis was on the 2nd syllable, but other relatives say it the way you mentioned...

@Naval,

Save the preaching for church. I believe Star will go on to make tens of millions and I'm not afraid to state that belief . I'm making my comments AFTER an incredible career at the U and AFTER many experts think he'll be drafted high. Stop being so preachy, you sound like a byu fan.

My guess is his heart problem WILL be fixed, it WON'T be a serious issue, and he'll sign a HUGE contract.

Go UTES!

You are all making a big deal about how good the Utah recruiting is. With all of these star recruits entering the NFL, how do you explain mediocre seasons and finishing at the bottom of the Pac 12 every year.

@ Chris B As well as the U seeing lots of donations from the three players you mentioned, so will the LDS church as these three players all pay 10%. Plus, lets hold off on the #1 pick until it happens. Today on MSN they had Star #15. These mock drafts are just guesses.

Obama10
SYRACUSE, UT

Yahoo Sports has Star #10 to the Titans and Ziggy #12 to Miami, so Chris B, can we please hold off on the pontification until draft night? I agree with 54-10, 2 guys from local schools going in the top 15 is great for the state.

If Lotulelei goes to KC with Alex Smith, they should show some games in Utah. Paul Kruger should go too.

Go Big Red!

Heart conditions are always extremely serious.
See Hank Gathers.

I would be stunned if anyone took Star with the #1 pick, with the gloom of his heart condition hanging out there.

He's a family man, some things are just more important than football.

I never saw Star projected by anyone higher than #3 first round, and that was before his condition popped up..

Good luck to both of them.

I played football with Star in high school and the emphasis is on the third syllable.
