The following is the 9th in a series of draft profiles for the 1st round pick for the Dallas Cowboys. These profiles are put together with the specific needs of the Cowboys in mind, and is an attempt to examine their resumes and game tape to get an idea of who might fit in best with Dallas come draft day. Surely, circumstances will dictate what actually happens on that day, but we will profile the 8-10 most likely candidates and try to kick the tires on each and every scenario an how it relates to the Cowboys in 2013 and beyond.
I thought I was done, but in the last 24 hours there has been a hint of possibility that Star Lotulelei gets in the Cowboys range. So, on this, draft day 2013, I scramble to get one more profile out (fully realizing that no matter how many I do, the Cowboys will do something off that board if Morris Claiborne is any indication).

BEST OF MAXIM
PICK: Star Lotulelei, DT, UtahANALYSIS: I still don't get why the Jets passed on him, but Carolina must be thrilled. I knew it had to be Star when the pick was in within a few minutes. He's the best DT in the draft, yet he somehow fell all the way to Carolina at 14. The defensive tackle position has been a huge need in Carolina for years, and they've finally gotten a...
For the second straight season the Carolina Panthers have drafted a defensive player with their first pick of the Draft by selecting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei with the 14th pick.It would be the perfect setting if Lotulelei wins Defensive Rookie of the Year following in the footsteps of linebacker Luke Kuechly.Lotulelei was a three-year starter at Utah where he shared the Morris...
1.14 Carolina Panthers Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah, (6-3, 311)
Lets face it, the Panthers have been one of our favorite fantasy defenses to play running backs on for quite some time.
Quite some time.
With the Panthers picking Star Lotulelei out of Utah, they will have two very good players up the middle to shore up that run D. Lotulelei had a medical scare at the NFL Combine but...
The Carolina Panthers bulked up their defensive front by selecting Utah's Star Lotulelei with the 14th overall pick in general manager Dave Gettleman's first NFL draft.
It marks the first time the Panthers have selected a defensive tackle in the first round since joining the league in 1995.
Defensive tackle was considered a position of need for the Panthers, who released...
We are less than a week from the NFL Draft, also known as the most important day of the year for your Cleveland Browns. With (another) new regime taking over the reigns and new schemes in place on both sides of the ball, it is crucial that Joe Banner, Mike Lombardi, Ray Farmer, Rob Chudzinski and the crew nail these three days. It all starts Thursday night with the primetime First...
Star Lotulelei DT from the University of Utah. Star is and will be a Star in the NFL I guarantee it. This is a great pick for the Panthers who were just dreadful on defense last season. Another BIG MAN in the first round. He shared the 2011 Morris Trophy for the best lineman in the Pacific-12 Conference with Matt Kalil, and was named All-Conference First Team.
The Eagles still hold the #4 overall pick in the draft, at least as of now. Rumors and reports that the Eagles are looking to move that #4 pick, moving up in the draft does not seem very sensible. Mock drafts have the Eagles snagging with their current pick a defensive tackle or end, Star Lotulelei Utah, Shariff Floyd from Florida or defensive end Ezekiel Ansah BYU. Moving up...
