I have heard several NFL talking heads on talk shows saying that Star will be like Kris Jenkins but I have no idea what they based that on.I am admittedly not very good at projecting NFL tackles.It seems much of that dominance you see in college disappears when they enter the NFL. The thing I did not like with picking Short is we pretty much committed Star as the NT which may or may not be the best position he is suited for.
What NFL player past or present will Star compare to?

NT is definitely the position Star is best suited for.
As for which player? A poor mans Haloti Ngata, which isn't a bad thing by any means considering Ngata at his peak was in my opinion a top ten NFL player. I don't think Star possesses the raw athleticism of Ngata, though (nobody ever brings him up for some reason in discussions about the best athletes but Ngata is quite the freak athlete; 5.13 40 at 330lbs and was a beast at Rugby).

Haloti Ngata was his pro comparison by NFL.com- I agree with it as well.
That would be a good thing.

i wouldn't say a poor man's ngata. i expect him to be on a very similar plane.
I think he can be an equal run stuffer potentially, but Ngata is superior at putting pressure on the quarterback even if it doesn't show on sacks. Who knows, though, maybe Star improves there.

Vikings DT Kevin Williams.
Star is like the opposite of Kevin Williams.

They were saying the same things about Ngata coming out of Oregon, i'll just say that. Ngata was said to be inconsistant with flashes of brilliance.
