    Who cares if Star or Ziggy gets drafted first? They're both going to start in the NFL and they're both going to get paid. The two of them are mutually exclusive - the success of one doesn't take away the possibility of success for other. Some of you need to let it go...

    I'm so happy that Star has been given a clean bill of health. This was a crazy situation for sure and could have cost him being the number one pick in the draft.

    We will all have to wait and see but I wish all the players from the big three nothing but the best of luck in the upcoming draft. It's a great accomplishment for any player to be picked in any round by an NFL team and every benefits from it in the long run.

    By the way 38 reps at 225lbs was the most by any other player in this years draft - very impressive indeed.

    Good luck Star and Go Utes!

    Star has a chance of getting drafted into the NFL, and you act like "you" just won the lotto. Get a life. Time for a reality check. How about just congratulating the guy and hope his health holds up while he pursues his dream.

    I agree with Wookie ... I'm simply happy for both players. I hope both Star and Ziggy go in the top 5 ... in fact the top two since we're sittin' around hoping for things.

    Great news for Star, not only from a football perspective, but from a life perspective as well. Any time you deal with heart problems it has to be scary. I'm sure this is a relief in more ways than one. From this Cougar Fan: Go get em' Star.

    Who cares which player is drafted when in the NFL Draft. I am happy for both Star and Ziggy. With names like that they should form a band when they retire.

    Godspeed to both Star and Ziggy.

    GO UTES!!

    @ Chris B

    Well that, and these future NFL superstars won't have to be worried about getting injured in a post season bowl game securing them to remain healthy for Pro Day.

    Good news for STAR$$$. This puts him back in the top 5 and ahead of Ansah.

    The true thing that remains to be seen though is if his layout due to the supposed heart problem has dropped him from the Top 5 radar. He may physically be okay, but scouts are not all the sudden going to come back out to Utah to observe him in a new light. They came and saw a man who had a heart problem, and they left feeling that he had a heart problem. And did he really run a 5.31 40? It seems like that is awfully slow.

    You think future recruits debating between several schools will see the 20+ guys Whittingham has recruited and had drafted in the NLF?

    You'd better believe it.

    This Ute pipeline will be paying dividends in terms of recruiting strength for years to come!

    Cha Ching! Those dollar signs are back in his eyes.

    Dude is going to make a hundred million dollars in his career. #1 pick is very possible now!

    Congrats Star! You've earned it.

    Go Utes!
