Star Lotulelei DT Utah 6037 320 5.00(40 time)
Two-year starter plus three starts as a sophomore in 2010. Big, thick, and quick. Was voted the coveted Morris Trophy as the defensive lineman of the year by the Pac-12 offensive linemen. A big man who rarely comes out of the game. Good endurance. Moved to defensive end in three man front nickel package. Quick to diagnose the play after controlling his opponent. Quick reactions. Finds the ball. Can read trap and combination blocks. Reacts quickly on the snap. He can explode and unlock his hips with force. Good base leverage and lower strength with knee bend to hold the point. Stout inline play strength. Plays with good balance and use of hands. Good arm extension and hand placement.
IIRC, Poe's 40 time last year was 4.8? We really reached and drafted Poe knowing we'd be able to take a NT with similar measurables, better production, and less ???s the following year?
This team sucks the life out of me.
This was discussed ad nausem draft time last year.
Lotulelei and John Hankins are absolute beasts. Both have enormous ceilings. Why on earth do you take a second team Conference USA guy with the #11 pick when these guys are going to be available in a year?
Yeah, these ****ing guys just don't get it.
However, I don't think we're going to have to worry about it past the end of the season. There is no way that Pioli, Crennel and all their sychophants keep their jobs.
And we get Geno Smith.
