Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Tupuola-Fetui has the quickness and flexibility to consistently dip and bend around the edge.
  • Accelerates rapidly and has a great feel for angles. He isn’t huge, but Tupuola-Fetui packs a pop.
  • Some teams will prefer him as a 4-3 Will, but he has a chance to hold up in the middle and be a good one.
  • Reads the quarterback to anticipate and is a candidate to play outside.
  • Gives effort between the tackles to find the ball and is willing to take on linemen.
  • Tupuola-Fetui has decent enough flexibility to bend the edge, and he shows a good closing burst.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks the fluidity and speed to turn and run with tight ends in coverage.
  • As a pass rusher, Tupuola-Fetui needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
  • Tupuola-Fetui could stand to be more violent as a tackler in the run game, as he too often allows backs to run through his arm tackles. Tupuola-Fetui also has limited experience dropping into coverage.
