Star Lotulelei's big day has arrived with the NFL draft tonight. He has been projected to go from anywhere from No. 4 to Philadelphia all the way to No. 26 in Peter King's mock draft.
I'd be shocked if Lotulelei fell that far. His stock slipped some when his health was brought into question, but since recent heart exams showed his heart does function properly, I can't imagine teams would hesitate to take him.
Lotulelei isn't the only Ute who is hoping to get drafted. Joe Kruger left a year early, a decision that surprised the coaches and many observers who thought he may have benefited from another year.
Personally, I'd like to see Reggie Dunn get a chance too after his electrifying returns.
What do you think? Predictions anyone?
