Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Eli Ankou Jacksonville Jaguars

Stout, yet broad frame with evenly distributed weight. Strong lower half and decent length. Active run-stuffer with good feet given background at linebacker. Agile, quick and physical. Does well to use hands to fend off blocks while keeping legs churning forward. Manages to consistently get push on the interior. In pass rush situations, disengages well and gets into the backfield. At best in run support where he attacks gaps, contains lanes and maintains leverage through contact to shoot up field. Potential multi-year starter at Power Five level and upside to earn looks from NFL Draft scouts.

Athletic Background

Alani Maafu is a 6-3, 285-pound Defensive Tackle from Scottsdale, AZ.
