Junior DT Josh Tupou "is the most intriguing of Colorado's potential NFL prospect," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang, though he's still quite raw.
Tupou collected just 38 tackles -- two for loss -- and half a sack in 2013, but scouts are intrigued not by his counting stats, but by his intriguing blend of size, strength and athleticism. The 6-foot-2, 320-pounder "generated some buzz among scouts as an underclassman to watch," according to Rang, due to his ability to clog the middle and stuff the run. "While not particularly nimble, Tupou offers at least average initial quickness, good strength at the point of attack and pursues with passion," Rang wrote. "Tupou can push the pocket with good upper body strength on the bull-rush and gets his hands into passing lanes. His frame, physicality and effort could intrigue 4-3 and 3-4 teams, alike, as a developmental interior prospect."
