NFL Draft 2010 – Round 1 #10- Jacksonville DE Tyson Alualu

Alualu wasn’t projected to be picked this high. I think this is a risky selection. Tweeners have a nasty habit of being draft busts. Anyone remember Eric Kummerow? writes- Alualu appears to be a bit of a tweener (combination of height and weight) for an NFL defensive lineman. He doesn’t have the great bulk as an interior lineman in a 4-3 front or the ideal height to play end in a 3-4 scheme. Alualu shows deceptive power for his size that can push the pocket as a pass rusher as well as penetrate the line of scrimmage as a run defender. He has quick hands to control and separate from blockers as well as solid instincts to feel pad pressure and maintain leverage in his gap responsibility. Alualu has enough tools and talent to contribute giving depth to an NFL defensive line.
