Panthers selected Utah DT Star Lotulelei with the No. 14 overall pick.
Lotulelei (6-3, 311) played all over the Utah's offensive line, but was primarily a run defender. He's generated optimistic comparisons to Haloti Ngata for his strength and power at the point of attack. Lotulelei drew consistent double teams in the Pac 12 yet still managed 22.5 career tackles for loss, seven sacks, and four forced fumbles. A heart-efficiency scare at the Combine is no longer a concern. At his March 20 Pro Day, Lotulelei pumped 38 bench reps, ran 5.15 in the forty, and performed a 30-inch vertical leap. The concern among some NFL personnel men is Lotulelei will not be able to rush the quarterback in the pros. Defensive tackle has been a glaring hole in Carolina's defense for years now. The Panthers will pair him up with Dwan Edwards, who amassed six sacks last season, in the middle in an effort to shore up one of the league's weaker run defenses. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 09:53:00 PM
