    Very selfish of me but I would love him to fall to the Broncos...not going to happen but I want him to get that Super Bowl ring with Manning.

    I am not predicting a drop in the draft order, I just think it would work to his advantage. A single player especially a D-lineman, doesn't make as much a difference to a football team - not in a position to turn a bad franchise around like Kobe Bryant or LeBron. I frankly hope the same thing for Ziggy, as well.

    Osgrath - you are assuming Star "falls". Most mock drafts have him in the top ten and many still have him in the top five. That doesn't mean anything in the long run, but assuming there is an automatic "drop in the draft order" is premature.

    Happy for Star no matter where he goes. He is a true class act that represents the U, the state, his family and himself extremely well.

    Go Star, Go Utes!!!

    Totally awesome. I admire an individual that doesn't care to be in the spotlight for 5 minutes. Star is gonna have plenty of time on the big screen with pads on. Good move Star...from a Coug fan.

    Good news on the medical clearance. This may work to Star's benefit, since a drop in the draft order possibly puts him with a better team. Kruger and Pitta both ended up in an ideal situation with the Ravens. Better he end up with a good team then get consigned to Jacksonville or Carolina.
