Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Tupuola-Fetui can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • He has the speed to be effective in pursuit, and Tupuola-Fetui shows enough fluid athleticism that he might be able to transition to outside linebacker and hold up in coverage.
  • He’s a high-effort pass rusher with an impressive combination of length and speed.
  • Tupuola-Fetui shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
  • While he has the flexibility to dip and bend under tackles, what makes him truly dangerous is his ability to counter.
  • Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space. Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tupuola-Fetui likely won’t be able to anchor against the more powerful offensive linemen of the NFL.
  • He’s more of a straight-line mover, incapable of consistently dipping and turning the corner. Tupuola-Fetui also has relatively short arms, and he’ll have trouble with NFL blockers getting into his chest.
  • Is slightly high-cut and stiff in the hips, likely too stiff for 3-4 outside linebacker consideration.
