Draft 2019

Pick Analysis: NFL scouts caught a glimpse of Tauaefa's (pronounced tow-ah- f-ah) prowess in the middle when watching 2018 first-round pick Marcus Davenport star at UTSA. As a redshirt freshman, the Corinth, Texas native earned Freshman All-American honors and was named the Conference USA Freshman of the year. He started 12 of 13 games played, setting a school record with 115 tackles in the middle (nine for loss, six sacks, one interception). Tauaefa suffered a knee injury during his sophomore campaign, limiting him to seven starts in eight contests (29 tackles, two for loss, one sack). After an honorable mention All-Conference USA junior campaign in which Tauaefa made 113 stops and led the Roadrunners with 11.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks, he decided to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.
