Player Overview

A four-star prep with offers from programs all over the country, Seumalo was essentially named Oregon State's starting center the moment he signed on.

It didn't take him long to justify the hype, earning Honorable Mention honors as a true freshman and progressing to Second Team accolades a year later despite injuries to others forcing him to move outside to right tackle for two of his 13 starts.

Unfortunately, Seufalo caught the injury bug, himself, breaking his left foot in Oregon State's season-ending Hawaii Bowl win over Boise State. Initially, it was thought Seufalo would heal quickly enough after surgery to be back for the 2014 season. Instead, he wound up undergoing a second procedure and ultimately was forced to redshirt.

He returned in 2015, however, starting all 12 games, splitting time between right guard (nine games) and left tackle (three). With his degree in hand (Business Administration), Seumalo elected to enter the 2016 NFL draft with a year of eligibility remaining.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Physically-speaking, Seumalo has the stout frame and natural strength that has helped many Polynesian players before him succeed at the point of attack. He incorporates excellent technique, as well, bending his knees and supplying a strong initial punch in textbook fashion.

Generally balanced and quick to shuffle laterally, Seumalo is often difficult to elude in pass protection. He generates movement at the point of attack and absorbs bull rushes well because of his power, core flexibility and knee bend. He has strong hands to latch on and control defenders and looks to finish his blocks. Efficiently gets to the second level and has a plan, stalking defenders and sealing them off from the action.

WEAKNESSES: The foot injury that cost Seumalo the 2014 season will require significant medical checks during the pre-draft process. His quick feet helped him survive (and at times thrive) in his five career games at tackle, but ultimately he lacks the reach and sustained foot speed to project outside in the NFL. Arm length may also be a factor that keeps Seumalo on the interior. At times he'll lunge and leave himself scrambling to recover.

IN OUR VIEW: If given a clean bill of health from NFL doctors, Seumalo could prove a "surprise" top 100 selection as he's among the more pro-ready and reliable interior linemen in the draft. Balanced, powerful and surprisingly athletic, he's a potential future starter with proven versatility, having started at four of the five positions (all but left guard) along the offensive line over his 37 career starts.
