Monday February 25th, 2013

Former Utah Utes defensive tackle Star Lotulelei has been diagnosed with a heart condition and will not work out at the NFL Combine, according to a tweet from ESPN's Chris Mortenson. It is not yet known what the test results could mean for Lotulelei's future, but the discovery of the condition puts serious question marks over one of the top picks in this year's draft. Highly rated by many analysts, Lotulelei recorded 42 total tackles with five sacks in 2012 for the Utah Utes.
