Draft Analysis:

"He has the ability to play both outside and inside, but his best position might be center. This is a solid and physical football player." -- Daniel Jeremiah

Overview

It's a family affair at Oregon State for the Seumalos. Isaac's brother, Andrew, was a captain at defensive tackle for the Beavers and was a graduate assistant coach. His father, Joe, was the defensive line coach (but has since moved on to BYU), and his sister, Jessi, plays volleyball in Corvallis. Isaac was the most highly recruited of any of them, rated as a top five guard prospect nationally out of high school. It was no surprise, therefore, that he suited up in the middle as a true freshman, earning honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors and multiple Freshman All-American nods. He showed versatility in 2013, garnering second team All-Pac-12 recognition for starting 10 games at center and two at right tackle due to injuries at that position. Unfortunately, Seumalo suffered a broken foot in the 2013 Hawai'i Bowl, which needed multiple surgeries to correct. He missed the entire 2014 season, although he still was named a team captain. Finishing off his career, Seumalo started all 12 games in 2015, nine at right guard, three at left tackle, meaning that he has started in four of the five spots on the line.

Analysis

Strengths

Quick feet and plays with above average lateral movement. Well­-schooled with technician's understanding of footwork and angles to secure reach blocks and wall defenders out of the running lane. Patient blocker waiting for his feet to settle into place before engaging. Operates with a centered, sure base and reliable core strength. Has experience at center, right guard and both tackle spots. Unselfish and does what is asked of him. Pass sets look like a tackle's with desired knee bend, flat back and arm extension.

Weaknesses

Frame could use more mass. Base narrows as drive blocker causing occasional bouts with body control and balance. Doesn't appear to have punch-­and­-snatch hands. Looks like he's got block secured and then loses grip and allows his defender into the play. Defender's hands often first into the framework. Hands need to work faster. Missed 2014 due to complications from injury suffered in 2013 Hawaii Bowl.

Bottom Line

Seumalo proved that he was back from a foot injury that sidelined him for all of 2014 with the same foot quickness and technical talent that he had before his injury. Seumalo can play anywhere on the interior, but his best position might be at center thanks to his core strength and overall anchor.
