2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MARLON TUIPULOTU: Southern Cal, 6016 308 5.20. Junior entry, three-year starter, Independence, OR. He was forced to medically redshirt in 2017 because of multiple injuries to his knee and back. Earned first-team All-Pac 12 honors in 2020. A fringe-sized interior defender who plays a powerful game capable of manning two gaps. A nose tackle candidate who will offer the occasional pass rush because of his ability to stack and shed lone blockers. Won’t profile as a high-end athlete and still has a lot of work ahead of him to make his techniques more consistent and repeatable. Projects as a quality-depth option for all fronts. Thick in all the right places with incredibly strong hands. Solid presence off the snap that will hold his ground with control of the engagement. Will roll his hips into the blocker. Can really do damage when his pad level is low. Has a tremendous bull rush that stems from a thick but functional lower half. Shows ability to create a new line of scrimmage before getting off a block and gravitating to the ball. Slow off the ball, rarely jumps the snap. Lack of top end athleticism will likely put a strict cap on effectiveness play to play. Needs to play with more consistent pad level. Will stand upright post-engagement, limiting his push. Lockout game isn’t always used. Allows blockers to get the initial hand position advantage too often. 2020 stats: 23 T, 3.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 1 FF. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-32 3/4, H-10 3/8, BP-29, 10-1.82).
