Carolina Panthers Draft Pick: Star Lotulelei, Utah, Defensive Tackle
Defensive Tackle from Utah
Star was the top prospect in this draft last summer and his on-field performance didn't change that this season. An off-season heart condition scared a handful of teams away from the Utah prospect, but now that he's cleared he could be a major steal for the Panthers. Luke Kuechly, the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year, has to be thrilled to have Star taking on double teams in front of him. The Panthers are building up their defense the right way, starting with the front seven.
