Player Overview

The 6-foot-5, 322-pounder started the past two seasons at left tackle for the Utes but began his career on the right side. The ability to switch positions could be critical for Poutasi, as he looks like a candidate to move inside to guard.

Poutasi can overwhelm defenders with his sheer size, but he struggled with Southern Cal's speed in 2014 and will only see a lot more of it in the NFL.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Imposing player with a typical Polynesian build -- broad shoulders and a massive lower half. Generates movement at the point of attack with his size and strength. Can drive defenders off the ball and gets an extra shove in for good measure. Huge wingspan to go along with his size, giving him quite the "catch radius" to latch onto defenders. Startling straight-line speed for a big man, accelerating quickly to get to the second level.

WEAKNESSES: Started two seasons at left tackle but is not quick enough to remain on the blindside in the NFL. Struggles with speed rushers, lacking the lateral agility and flexibility to recover if beaten off the snap. The same issues with balance and changing direction arise when blocking at the second level -- will reach out and lasso defenders, drawing flags for holding.

05/05/2015 - A closer look at the Titans' nine picks: Round 3/66 - Jeremiah Poutasi, T, 6-5, 335, Utah...Poutasi comes to the Titans with a very good chance to start right away at right tackle. All he has to do is beat out unproductive free-agent signee Byron Bell and career backup Byron Stingily in camp. If he does so, then the Titans will have four-fifths of an offensive line with three years experience or less. - The Sports Xchange
