Biography: Posted 26 tackles and six tackles for loss last season after transferring from USC. Graduated from high school in 2004 before serving a Mormon mission the next two years.
Positives: Tough, slug-it-out defender who is best in the box. Plays with good knee bend, displays solid movement skills and shows power in his game. Bulrushes opponents off the line, rarely gives up an inch and displays powerful punch with his hands. Flashes the ability to get down the line and chase the action.
Negatives: Lacks great first-step quickness. Marginal speed and pass rushing skill. Occupies gaps rather than making plays on the ball.
Analysis: Fangupo displayed enough ability last year to draw the interest of scouts and is getting long looks from 34 defenses. He's a space eater with great power and needs to be placed in a system that asks him to occupy gaps.
