PAUL SOLIAI: Utah, 6040 344 5.13. Two-year starter. Huge wide-bodied grass grabber with long arms. Endurance is a problem. Wears down in games and plays high. Two down player. A premium is put on a man with his size that can move. Ideal nose tackle to push the pocket. Gets inside push. Doesn’t always play low but is hard to move. Graded out as one of the top defensive tackles athletically at the Combine. Had a vertical jump of 29.5. Can be explosive off the ball. Tackle to tackle player. One speed guy. Needs to use his hands better. Lacks the consistent ability to control opponent with effective hand use. Marginal quickness and extension. Could go anywhere on the second day with his weight concerns. Did not lift weights as of press time due to a right elbow injury. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34, H-9 3/4, BP-DNP, 10-1.73).
