BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter at right tackle awarded All-Conference honors as a senior.
POSITIVES: Effective position blocker who plays with solid fundamentals. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and effectively uses his hands. Understands blocking angles, body positioning and seals defenders from the action.
NEGATIVES: Struggles sliding laterally, lacks adjustment and over-extends. Marginally strong at the point and gets pushed back off the ball.
ANALYSIS: A well-built blocker who flashes ability, Uperesa does not consistently play to his size or ability. Offers some upside but must consistently play at a high level for any chance of making it in the NFL.
