For those of us who are wanting a 'Star' DT/NT...

So people think DT is our biggest need now?

Dwan and Ron are holding it down for now and I think Dwan has several quality years left. No doubt, we need to address it still, but I don't know that it is our #1 need.

I'm thinking Safety or a solid #2 CB (assuming Norman will be taking over Gamble's spot) are higher up there for now.

The D-line push has taken a nose dive the past couple of weeks after Ron got injured. He's old and injury prone. Dwan is serviceable but he needs somebody beside him....and Fua sucks ass. Star would be a definite upgrade to our situation but I keep hearing that this draft is deep in DTs. If the secondary and o-line talent lack depth in the later rounds this year, perhaps it would be better to select a top ranked player in one of those categories and go DT later on. But then again, by going that route, there's that possibility of finding another Fua in the rough...

I'm just starting to accept the fact that both Joeckel and Star will be gone when we pick. Would be our luck with the way this season has gone,

Then we get to pick Reid! :D

how does Star compare to other top DT prospects- Suh, McCoy, and Dareus ?

In my opinion, less of a prospect than Suh but at least on par with, if not greater than, McCoy and Dareus. Star's burst off the snap is the quickest I've probably ever seen for a guy his size and he's very strong at the point of attack. He's not as polished as Dareus or as much of a pass rusher as McCoy but in terms of total package and potential I'd probably take him before the other two.

..you better hope that the Raiders start winning games or end up with a better record. Otherwise they will get Star Lotulelei instead of us.

Edit: Damn it, could a mod move this to the 'draft' section. I dun goofed.

What makes you think we can beat the raiders?
