Strengths Weaknesses

While scouts like the fact that Tutogi has demonstrated the willingness to handle multiple positions, he hasn't yet demonstrated the ability to star at any of them. He's a powerful interior runner who runs with good forward lean and keeps his legs churning on contact but he lacks the quick feet to spurt through gaps when they are there. The lack of top agility limits Tutogi as a receiver, as well. Perhaps most disconcerting is that Tutogi remains a work in progress as a lead blocker, as he lacks the power, at this point, to consistently pave the way. Tutogi's versatility and enthusiastic play, however, could be enough to earn him a chance to make an NFL roster.

Player Overview

The proliferation of the spread offense throughout college and pro football has virtually eliminated the traditional fullback. Tutogi, however, boasts an intriguing combination of running, blocking and receiving skills that has earned him opportunities with the Wildcats at running back, fullback, H-back, tight end and special teams that could result in late round or free agent consideration from some clubs.

A veteran of 36 games (including 11 starts) over his career, Tutogi (full name is pronounced Tie-mee tuh-TOE-gee) has established himself as an effective short-yardage runner, scoring a career high four touchdowns last season and has 47 carries for 122 yards for his career. He has also caught 17 passes for 161 yards and two scores.
