You made good point about Star's stamina late in the game, but that happens to almost every single d lineman. You gotta remember that Star is the only "star" player on that Utah D. Brockers had a ton of NFL prospects playing beside him and for Cox, hes in the SEC. SEC is full of players unlike a team like Utah. Right now its pretty much a toss up between Star and Hankins. Jenkins from UGA isnt really on the same level and is a different type of player than the two of them. Jenkins and Hankins both also has help on their team (i.e. jarvis jones and john simon) unlike Star who has nobody.
But just asking to make sure, were you seriously about not being impressed? An do you really think Brockers and Cox are better prospect than Star? What are you smoking?
Yes, fletcher cox was a much better prospect than Star. Mainly due to the difference in their pass rush ability. I dont see Star disengaging very well in the run game.. and he gets driven by the ball carrier far too frequently. I don't think Star is a top 15 pick at all based on that game tape.
I have no bias toward Star at all.. I havent seen him play until that video.. I just call it like I see it. Id be glad to watch more as the season unfolds and update my opinion.
Brockers was a better run stuffer than Star easily. Its night and day.
I don't see Haloti Ngata when I watch Star play.. they are both the same size and both Samoan, but he won't be the player Ngata is.
