Biography: Three-year starter who led UNLV last season with 85 tackles after posting 59 the prior year. Posted a career-high 90 tackles during his sophomore season.
Positives: "Fluid middle linebacker who makes plays sideline to sideline. Scrapes well laterally, displays speed to the flanks, and quickly changes direction or immediately alters his angle of attack. Displays a quick burst to the play and flies around the ball."
Negatives: Undersized and easily caught up in traffic. Has just marginal ball skills.
Analysis: "Paulo is a hardworking defender who has been solid against the run. Out of position at middle linebacker last season, he has the athleticism to be used on the weak side if he improves his skills in coverage."
