Overview

Fua has the ability to contribute as a two-down wave player. Does not project to provide enough value as a pass rusher and runs out of gas during long drive and late in games. Will help out against the run, firing off the ball, staying low, establishing good position and holding up at the point of attack but isn't going to chase down many plays. Pass rushing could improve with more active hands and the addition of some more moves. Fua's solid against the run and shows enough effort to get selected in the middle rounds.

Analysis

Strengths

Fua's a strong, stout defensive tackle. Gets off the ball well and appears to do a good job of anticipating the snap count. Plays low, can anchor at the point of attack, and get some push. Plays with a mean streak. Solid intangibles and character to our knowledge.

Weaknesses

Doesn't offer much as a pass rusher. Doesn't possess enough quickness to shoot gaps, is not a dominant bull rusher, and doesn't use his hands well to get off blocks. Also takes to long shed blocks against the run. Won't chase down many plays on the perimeter. Lacks stamina.
