Strengths

Positives: Rare size for the position with the frame to add mass. ... Measures in at nearly 300 pounds, but considering his height, Moala almost has a lanky build. ... Good initial quickness off the snap. ... Powerful hands to slap away the offensive linemen trying to control him. ... Quick to recognize the play and work his way toward the action. ... Good size and strength to collapse the interior running lanes. ... High-effort player who will pursue laterally and down the field. ... Durable performer who has seen starting action every year of his career. ... Good bloodlines. Cousin Haloti Ngata was a first-round pick and is a standout defensive lineman with the Baltimore Ravens. Negatives: Essentially a one-trick pony, as Moala is simply too slow of foot to create much of a pass rush. ... Reasonable short-area quickness, but lacks closing speed and is too stiff to break down and make tackles in space. ... Lacks a variety of pass-rush moves and relies on his initial quickness off the snap and a simple bull-rush to pressure the passer. ... Signed with USC out of high school, but failed to qualify academically and spent a year at Cypress Junior College (Calif.), though he didn't play football there. ... Redshirted at USC in 2004 and will be 24 years old by the time he suits up for an NFL team.
