Khyiris Tonga DL BYU Draft Profile

Chicago Bears Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 7 - Pick Number: 250 (CHI)
Strengths
  • Quarterbacks and ballcarriers feel his strength when he plants them in the backfield.
  • Looks the part with natural size and filledout frame with good body thickness.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Flashes exciting burst off the snap to penetrate. Can slip through gaps with his get-off and is an intimidating force for quarterbacks to avoid.
  • Surprisingly light on his feet and shows the ability to break down reasonably well to make the tackle in tight quarters against much smaller, quicker ballcarriers.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to do a better job of being the aggressor and tossing blockers aside.
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • Possesses excellent weight-room strength, although it doesn't always translate onto his play.
  • Inconsistent in his ability to separate from blocks, however, making him more of a nuisance than a snap-to-snap terror.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
