PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Fuaga is a powerful and physical offensive tackle with a dominating presence in the run game. He exhibits a mean streak and an ability to punish defenders, making him a cornerstone for a run-first offense. His ability to move quickly out of his stance and reach second-level defenders highlights his fit in schemes that prioritize zone concepts and play-action passes. Although his pass protection shows room for improvement, especially in terms of footwork and over-aggressiveness, his overall skill set makes him versatile enough to play both guard and tackle positions at the next level. Fuaga is best suited for teams looking to bolster their offensive line with a strong run blocker who can also hold his own in pass protection.

SCOUTING REPORT

70-74 (Near Elite) - Fuaga's exceptional run blocking, combined with sufficient pass protection abilities and his potential for versatility along the offensive line, aligns with a near elite grade. His impact in the run game and ability to develop into a more consistent pass protector suggest he will become a significant contributor early in his NFL career.
