2013 Draft Profile – DT Star Lotulelei

He went by the name of Star, but he did not feel like one.

High school was behind him and his future was sketchy because of poor grades. Star Lotulelei was driving a truck for a Salt Lake City furniture store. He was one of the big guys carrying in the new recliner or dining room table. Driving around all day in a panel truck left plenty of time to think, and that’s when Lotulelei decided there had to be something more in his life, not only for himself, but eventually his wife and two children.

Today, he doesn’t deliver furniture; he orders it. Star Lotulelei is about to become a first-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, and a high pick as well. Through most of the fall, some felt he would be the first player taken in this year’s draft. The way things stand right now, he should be taken in the top 5 to 7 players.

When it happens, it will be another chapter in a story that became in the South Pacific and led to the mountains of Utah and now heaven knows where. Here’s a profile of University of Utah DT Star Lotulelei.
