BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer awarded All-Conference honors last year after a breakout campaign of 35/3.5/2. Totaled five tackles as a junior.

POSITIVES: Big, powerful defender who clogs the middle of the field. Gets off the snap with a quick first step, focused on by opponents and plays with good balance. Powerful, gets a lot of force going up the field and splits double-team blocks.

NEGATIVES: Too large and must condition himself better as he wears down over the course of a game. Displays minimal hand technique and moves. Not known as a hard worker or one who remains focused.

ANALYSIS: Soliai offers terrific upside but relies to much on his natural ability to get the job done. Could dominate at the next level or may end up a prospect who never meets expectations if he doesn.t crank it up.

PROJECTION: Middle Fifth Round
