Vanderbilt senior DT Nifae Lealao is being counted on to improve the Commodores' abysmal defensive havoc stats, according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough.
In 2016, Vanderbilt finished last in the SEC in sacks and among the worst nationally in TFL. The 6-foot-5, 312-pound nose guard Lealao might be the team's best shot to improve upon those numbers. Last year, he displayed the "size and strength to punish in the running game" and the "quickness to fight off blocks and disrupt the quarterback," wrote Scarborough. "If he develops into one of the best interior linemen in the SEC as coach Derek Mason expects, it would be a huge boost to a struggling defense." Jun 29 - 1:54 PM
