2012 Draft Nuggets - Alameda Ta'amu, Washington, NT

Alameda Ta’amu, Washington, 6024 336

Three-year starter who is a wide body that plays square. Has the size, strength, temperament, and toughness to play a two gap nose tackle. Possesses good agility and ability to change direction. May be more of an anchor and push player than a quick footed athlete. Has been durable to hold up inside. Flashed bursts of quickness when he fought through three blockers to make a sack in the Holiday Bowl. Takes good angles and gives effort in short pursuit. Has the instincts and recognition to eat up space and do his job. Good functional strength at point of attack. Can control the blocker, separate, shed, and stuff the ball carrier from tackle to tackle. Agile enough to drop into coverage on zone blitz packages.
