Evaluation

Tuipulotu is a very good looking interior prospect. He has a great first step, is explosive off the ball and is very physical. He shows very good lateral mobility and short area quickness, can split a double team and is strong at the point of attack. He can move around and play multiple spots on the defensive line but likely projects as a 3-tech in college. He needs to add some size but has the frame to do so and his upside is tremendous.
