Star Lotulelei to work at Utah pro day but won't run 40

New, comments

A good day from Star today could get him back in the discussion for the first overall pick in April's draft.

Star Lotulelei was once in the conversation to be the #1 overall pick. His draft stock took a huge tumble, however, after it was reported at the combine that he had a heart issue. His team has since refuted that report, saying he was simply dehydrated.

Today is the his pro day at Utah, and according to multiple sources he will do everything there except run a 40. NFL ATL reports that Lotulelei has passed all medical tests since the combine. A good performance today could vault him back up into the top 10.

I have not seen any reports about who is in attendance at his pro day today, but I would assume that someone from the Titans will be there. Again, defensive tackle is not necessarily a need for this team, but Lotulelei is considered to be one of just a handful of blue chip prospects in this draft.

If he makes it to 10 the Titans might have a hard time passing on him.

[UPDATE]- Star performed well today. There is a good chance he goes in the top 10:
