2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOSH TUPOU: Colorado, 6025 362 5.30. Four-year starter from Buena Park, CA. Fifth year senior who had a very strong start to his career, but it was temporarily derailed when he was suspended for the entire 2015 season for violating team rules. Has all the thickness in the world from head to toe. Still functional enough to move well between the inside gaps. Immovable object that can control blockers and demand attention. Will get his hands on first and consistently win the initial battle for ground. Will get off a lone blocker and make single arm tackles. Powerful presence. Very limited athletically. Won’t make plays outside the guards. Lacks any assortment of pass rush moves. One trick pony who tires easily. Needs conditioning work. Plays high too often. Loses awareness and will play in his own scheme at times. Tupou can certainly play the role of dirty work, inside gap controller. He carries a lot of weight and fires off the ball well with heavy hands and sturdy legs. He will always be limited and he could use some conditioning work, but he has a spot in the NFL. Shrine Game notes: It’s tough to move a stump and that is exactly what Tupou is. He holds his ground with a passion. Tough and physical in his play. Clogs up the inside running lanes. On short yardage or goal line plays the ex-Buffalo explodes and drives the blocker in the backfield. Shocks the blocker or stacks a double team. 2016 stats: 45 T, 4 TFL, 2 sacks. Not invited to Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-33 1/2, H-9 5/8, BP-27, 10-1.92).
