Draft Rewind 2004 - Isaac Sopoaga - San Francisco 49ers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about ISAAC SOPOAGA: Hawaii, 6022 319 5.01. Samoan. JuCo transfer. Two year starter at defensive tackle. Could project on the nose. Had a good senior year — missed some action with a knee injury. A short-legged lineman with thick arms, a muscular upper body, and excellent strength. Tough run defender. Exhibits good initial quickness but is not a dynamic penetrator. Takes on blocks a bit high. Holds his ground very well at the point-of-attack. Looks to muscle blockers and doesn’t do a good job of escaping. Lacks good change-of-direction. Needs to do a better job of locating while battling the block. Chases with effort and tackles well but doesn’t have good range. Limited pass rusher. Aggressive puncher with the leg strength to push the pocket on the bullrush. Doesn’t show good moves — gets neutralized too often. Should be effective as a role player.
