Star Lotulelei: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)It's still possible that Lotulelei's heart scare from the Combine might be enough for teams to rank Sharrif Floyd above him in most cases, but if Wodraska's report is indicative of the average NFL team's assessment of Lotulelei, we can't see him falling out of the first 10 picks. While Kansas City appears somewhat locked into the selection of an offensive tackle (Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher), Lotulelei should be a serious consideration from the second pick onward.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lotulelei is a very versatile player on the interior, possessing dominant skill at 4-3 tackle and any 3-4 defensive line spot. A big snap count at Utah wore Lotulelei down at times, but when he's in top form, Lotulelei is a devastating gut punch to offensive lines. His combination of explosion, leverage and power off the snap is intimidating, and he'll start right away in Carolina.
