- Highest drafted defensive tackle in the history of the Panthers

- First DT ever drafted by the Panthers in Round One (Jenkins was a second rounder)

- Drafted in the same slot as DE Jason Peter in 1998 (#14 overall) a spot that was expected to go to Vonnie Holliday

- 2011 winner of the Pac 12's Morris Trophy, awarded to the best defensive lineman and voted on by the offensive linemen in the conference

- Only the second Utah defensive lineman ever named an AP All American

- Started on both sides of the ball in high school on a team that won a state championship

- Went to junior college for two years (Snow College) but only played football there his first year

- Almost quit football twice; once right after high school and also in his second year of junior college

- Said he "lost his desire" after grade issues kept him out of football, but got it back after a short time

- Worked at a furniture store during one of his hiatus from football periods

- First name "Star" is actually shortened from "Starlite" which he says is an Americanized version of his father's name

- Weighed 240 coming out of high school; got as high as 360 in college; now down to 311

- Prior to the report of a heart condition, some analysts had him ranked near the very top of the Draft

- Fourth Utah player drafted by the Panthers; R J Stanford is no longer with the team but the first two - Steve Smith and Jordan Gross - are still around

- Described by former Oregon coach Chip Kelly as "a player you have to game plan around"

Fact # 106: Star can slam a revolving door. Also for the brave soul and diehard panther fans in regent park(Fort Mill, SC) I believe there is a street sign that says "starlite".

Loves that swim move, doesn't he?

Not on anything I've watched so far.

Have seen him redirected a time or two, but have yet to see him pushed back.

when he gets redirected its usually towards the ball and that's when he makes a spectacularly athletic play (for his size and position anyway)

Not lacking for effort, is he?

His first move is sometimes so fast it looks like he's jumped early. I haven't seen that in Carolina since Kris Jenkins.
