    While this is by no means an all clear from his medical problems, it is a step in the right direction, making him a more attractive pick.

    I'm wanting us to go defense in the 1st round more and more as we get closer to the draft.. is this guy worth our 10th overall pick? You build a defense starting with the defensive line. Good D-line play makes the entire defense play better, see 2008 with Haynesworth, KVB, and Kearse. But I look at other teams with dominate D tackles like Detroit and I become skeptical. We already have some solid DTs with Casey, Martin, Hill, and Klug. If Star is there at 10, should we take him?

    Yea he's worth the 10th pick, are you kidding? He's even worth the 1st pick to some people.

    Most mock drafts still have him going around 15 or even later. I'm mostly worried about another first round bust.. with Locker, Britt, and Morgen all on make-or-bust seasons, we can't afford another wasted first rounder. But without his problem he is an easy top 3, so I dunno.

    I can assure you, so long as Morgan is healthy, he'll prove to be a great pick. Locker I'm not as certain about, but I'm very optimistic because I believe in him.

    As for Kenny, that dude is a lost cause, good luck in the future wherever you find yourself.
