BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who posted 140/13/.5 as a senior when he also intercepted four passes and broke up five more. All-Conference
selection in �08. Junior totals included 108/13/4. Posted 94 tackles as a sophomore and 92 his freshman season.
POSITIVES: Tauiliili is an intense run-defending linebacker who's built to play on the inside of a 3-4 alignment. His game took off last
season, and Tauiliili has enough skill to break into a starting lineup in the right system.
NEGATIVES: Possesses more of a short-area burst of speed and does not cover a lot of area on the field. Efficient, and takes too many
extra steps to the action.
ANALYSIS: Intense run-defending linebacker who chases around the field to get involved in the action. Quickly diagnoses plays, displays
good first-step quickness and a burst of closing speed. Shows an excellent head for the ball in run defense, works his way
up the field, and consistently squares into tackles, and then wraps up ball handlers. Goes hard sideline-to-sideline, quickly
fills gaps in run defense, yet he remains disciplined with assignments.
