Thu, 25 Apr 2013 18:48:40 -0700

The Carolina Panthers selected Utah DT Star Lotulelei with the 14th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

NFL | Star Lotulelei update

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 09:12:10 -0800

Utah DT Star Lotulelei (heart) has been told he can continue working out on his own, according to a person informed of the conversations between doctors and Lotulelei, after withdrawing from the NFL Scouting Combine because of an abnormal heart exam. The person said it's hoped that it's not a heart condition but rather dehydration, too much sodium in his diet or rapid weight loss in a short timeframe that prompted tests to reveal his heart wasn't pumping at full capacity. Lotulelei dropped almost 10 pounds in three days recently, in part because of the hectic schedule of traveling to the combine. Lotulelei did not fail his physical but rather was given an incomplete designation pending a consultation with a specialist.
