Comparison

Isaac Sopoaga

Massive nose guard who looks all of the 350 pounds he’s listed at. An absolute load to try and move around in the middle of a defensive line. Should be able to take on a double team, hold his ground and will be very tough to handle in one-on-one situations because of his raw power. Isn’t just big, has good first step quickness and can beat an opposing guard/center right at the snap. Moves well laterally, can change direction, uses his hands well and can finish off a play. Plays with toughness and physicality and is almost impossible to slow down once he gets moving up the field. is a devastating run blocker as an offensive lineman as well but will play on the defensive side of the ball in college and has the physical tools to be an impact player early in his college career. Projects as a impact upper tier Power 5 starter and future late-round NFL draft pick.
