Biography: Part-time starter since his sophomore campaign when BYU began the game with a fullback. Senior totals included 40/148/4 on the ground with 30/271/4 as a pass catcher. Sat out the 2008 season due to academics.
Positives: One-dimensional lead of blocking fullback with an aggressive style. Plays with a nasty attitude, squares into defenders, and strong at the point of attack. Controls defenders once engaged in a block and works hard to whistle blows. Solid receiver out of the backfield extends his hands and plucks the ball from the air.
Negatives: Not much of a receiving threat. Does not play with 40 time.
Analysis: Tonga is a lead blocker with marginal skills handling the ball. He would be a nice addition for a power running offense that does not require him to handle the ball much.
