I think so. Hopefully this endís up the same way for Star, and they just wanted him to get additional testing.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are not the team on the verge of acquiring Alex Smith.
The Jaguars have ruled themselves out. The Browns aren't the team, either, and the Chiefs have yet to dispute their association with CBS' report. All signs continue to point to Alex Smith becoming Andy Reid's next quarterback.

I don't really want to comment on this much until I can gather some more information.

Up until this point I thought the prospect of Sharrif Floyd being selected ahead of Lotulelei was absurd but something like this could definitely open the door. Hopefully it will be something that is easily fixed and it won't affect Star either on Draft Day or of course more important in life.

star is the type of player a bunch of bad teams pass on and then NE, SF or BAL get a steal late in the round.

He's been cleared. From Rotoworld:

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on NFL 32 that Utah DT Star Lotulelei has been medically cleared following his heart scare at February's Scouting Combine.
Lotulelei will participate fully in Utah's Wednesday Pro Day. "He's clear now," reported Mortensen. "At the Combine they flagged him for having a heart that wasn't pumping enough blood. It wasn't pumping properly. ... But he proceeded to go ahead and train. He's gone through extensive medical testing." Per Mort, Lotulelei's agent is sending his healthy medical reports to all 32 clubs, and "a lot of teams" will be in Salt Lake for his Wednesday workout.

just wanted to clarify that being cleared for physical activity does not mean that he is free from cardiomyopathy....though the report implies it.

Only the medical report can clearly say that he has a normal cardiovascular exam (i.e. Regular rate and rhythm, no gallops, rubs or murmurs. No pedal edema noted. Peripheral pulses intact, equal bilaterally; no JVD; no bruits in carotids, abdominal, or femoral regions noted, etc. )

That is really good news. Some teams might still be a little leery and not want to take him but he won't drop too far.

Default "Freak viral infection."

38 reps later, this guy belongs at the top of the DT rankings.

Stehlik writes in the letter that Lotulelei's abnormal test result may have resulted from a viral infection and that subsequent tests have shown a "complete normalization of the heart muscle function."

Floyd has been one of the darlings of the off-season so far and I wonder how many teams will have Star ahead of him now that the medicals checked out.

great for Star.

Floyd and Star are 2 different types of prospects. Floyd is more of a penetrator, while Star is more of a NT. One is speed while the other is power, respectively (much like offensive lineman who are better at zone or man schemes).

Thus they are entirely scheme and need dependent.

Not entirely true. They are very different players, but Star's skills make him more scheme versatile than Floyd. Star can play the nose in both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes as well as the DE in in 3-4. Star is a really a 4-3 3 technique only, although a pretty good one. Floyd is more of a gap penetrator, but Star can get into the backfield with a wicked bull rush that off results in O-line looking up at the sun from their backs. IMO, although I agree scheme need is the biggest factor, Star is the better prospect overall.
