Scouting Report: Strengths
- Has a strong, flexible core, and the ability to absorb and anchor against the bull rush as a pass protector.
- Wide-body who stands his ground and is especially effectively sliding to mirror and hold off outside pressure.
- Takes much more pride in the run game, where Bainivalu plays through the whistle with tremendous physicality.
- In pass protection, he flashes a strong initial punch and typically has good hand placement.
- Outstanding in the screen game, both because of his instincts to deceive defenders and mobility to get out in front and land blocks.
- Hand placement is excellent, and he shows a good understanding of angles when climbing upfield
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Attacks when necessary, though Bainivalu won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
- As a pass protector, he gets caught reaching and lunging when matched up against quickness.
- Although he does have the physical traits of an NFL tackle, he might play too high to be a candidate to transition to guard.
