Scouting Report/Player Notes

One of the most dominant defensive tackle prospects in the entire crop of 2013 players. Lotulelei is in line to be the first DT selected in April and should be a dominant starter from day one. He will obviously have a learning curve, but he’s got the ability to be a very disruptive force at the DT position who can not only occupy multiple blockers, but get through the line and make plays with his excellent quickness and strength. Whatever team drafts him is going to get a guy who can come in right away and be a high impact player. He is a legitimate top 5 talent at this point.
