BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who started the past two seasons at Oregon and won all-Conference honors as a junior.
POSITIVES: "Nice-sized offensive lineman with potential at a number of positions. Strong at the point, gets movement run blocking, or
anchors in pass protection. Stays square, makes terrific use of blocking angles, and keeps defenders in front of him. Fights
with his hands throughout the action, keeps his head on a swivel, and works well with teammates. Aggressive and works hard
to finish blocks. Well-built and naturally strong."
NEGATIVES: Must improve his blocking balance and footwork sliding off the edge. Displays marginal skill in motion.
ANALYSIS: "Tupou has been a very solid player on the left side for Oregon the past two years. He has the body type and skill that could
place him at right tackle or inside to guard. His game has progressed the past two seasons, and his best football is ahead
