- Colorado's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. DT Josh Tupou, Junior...Boasting size, strength and athleticism, Tupou is the most intriguing of Colorado's potential NFL prospects though the true junior remains quite raw. He generated some buzz among scouts as an underclassman to watch but the thick run-stuffer hardly wowed in the statistical category a season ago, posting 38 tackles with two tackles for loss and just half a sack.
Statistics don't tell the whole story with Tupou, however. While not particularly nimble, Tupou offers at least average initial quickness, good strength at the point of attack and pursues with passion. Tupou can push the pocket with good upper body strength on the bull-rush and gets his hands into passing lanes. His frame, physicality and effort could intrigue 4-3 and 3-4 teams, alike, as a developmental interior prospect. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
