    STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES
    STRENGTHS: Imposing player with a typical Polynesian build -- broad shoulders and a massive lower half. Generates movement at the point of attack with his size and strength. Can drive defenders off the ball and gets an extra shove in for good measure. Huge wingspan to go along with his size, giving him quite the "catch radius" to latch onto defenders. Startling straight-line speed for a big man, accelerating quickly to get to the second level.


    WEAKNESSES: Started two seasons at left tackle but is not quick enough to remain on the blindside in the NFL. Struggles with speed rushers, lacking the lateral agility and flexibility to recover if beaten off the snap. The same issues with balance and changing direction arise when blocking at the second level -- will reach out and lasso defenders, drawing flags for holding.



    --Rob Rang

    PLAYER OVERVIEW
    The 6-foot-5, 322-pounder started the past two seasons at left tackle for the Utes but began his career on the right side. The ability to switch positions could be critical for Poutasi, as he looks like a candidate to move inside to guard.


    Poutasi can overwhelm defenders with his sheer size, but he struggled with Southern Cal's speed in 2014 and will only see a lot more of it in the NFL.

    Said he has work to do in pass protection, but is a mauler.

    Only 20 years old.

    Big wingspan, should be able to manage RT with some work.

    Talking heads. He has to be targeted to be the RT.

    As a RT he should do fine, hes going to body everyone on his side, RT's can get away with sheer power vs technique

    Don't know anything about him. We needed OL help big time though so I'm not gonna be mad about it.
