We have seen a lot of highly touted/hyped defensive tackles come out in the recent years. Some have lived up to their pre-draft hype, others have not. I'm just wondering where you see Star, heart condition aside, as a defensive tackle prospect compared to others that have come out. Here is a list of guys I was thinking of...I'm sure I am missing a few of the good ones that were taken pretty high.

 

Glenn Dorsey

N. Suh

Nick Fairley

Fletcher Cox

Marcell Dareus 

Michael Brockers

Floyd

Sheldon Richardson

Dontari Poe

J. Worthy

Star Lotulelei

 

I believe Star would have been getting crazy praise pre-draft, more so than he did, if he had played in the SEC and the heart condition thing never came up.

Lotulelei is/was probably #2 for me.  Suh is easily #1 as a prospect coming out and it isn't debatable.  Then I'd go Star (another gap after Star; I think he was the most dominant DT since Suh), Dareus, then not sure after that.

Dorsey was real good too.

Leaving Gerald McCoy out of this list is a bit of a miss.  He manhandled us last year.

 

I'd have to say Star is right behind dareus and suh.  its a bit tougher to say for sure as star is pretty darn versatile.  hes like a bigger suh but doesnt move quite as well.

Pretty high. IMO:

 

1. Suh

2. Dorsey ~ Star

4. McCoy

5. Dareus ~ Floyd

 

I know Dorsey's been disappointing, but gosh, coming out of college, he was a sight to behold. Trust the Chiefs to fug it up. Floyd and Dareus were almost identical as prospects. I know one got drafted a lot earlier than another, but you just never know how different teams rate prospects. If Floyd was in Dareus' position, who knows where he would've gotten drafted.

I was hoping to see Dorsey choose a 43 D to play for this season. I think he could very well succeed, or at least be much better than what he was at KC. Going to SF, he is in the same situation. Same goes for Tyson Jackson. I think both of them are much better fit in a 43 D.
